How to get the utmost out of your current Reed Diffuser

Choose the Right Location

Position your reed diffuser in an area of the house with high traffic or where people can pass through, and ensure that the environment has proper ventilation such as in a hall, living room, or the door step. This helps to spread the fragrance more evenly throughout your home, as it does not concentrate the fragrance in one single place.

Do not expose yourself to the direct sun or heat by sitting in the sunlight, driving a car with the windows closed or walking in the hottest part of the day.

It should be noted that heat and direct light sources can also contribute to the evaporation of fragrance oil so you should avoid placing your diffuser where it will be exposed to these elements. Ensure that you set your perfume diffuser on a firm and flat surface that will not topple over and should not be near open windows or heat generating appliances such as heaters.
