What is a Reed Diffuser?

A reed diffuser is designed to elevate the ambience of your home, reeds diffusers are a combination of the finest scented oils and a carefully crafted base.  At Mendwick Candles Our thoughtfully designed base oil ensures a gradual and sustained evaporation, allowing the captivating fragrance to seamlessly intertwine with the air in your home.

How Does a Reed Diffuser Work?

we've carefully selected a blend of fine fibre and rattan reeds to take your scent experience to new heights. Once you delicately place the reeds into the bottle, a captivating journey begins. Through a network of tiny channels within the reeds, the fragranced liquid is absorbed, eagerly preparing to fill your space with its divine aroma. As the liquid gracefully rises, it reaches the end of these channels, embarking on a dance with the air. It is this elegant evaporation that delicately releases the enchanting scent, transforming your home into a haven of pure olfactory bliss. Prepare to immerse yourself in a world where every breath becomes a delightful sensory experience, courtesy of Mendwick Candles' reed diffusers.

How Do You Use a Reed Diffuser

Congratulations on receiving your coveted fragrance! Now, let's embark on an exciting journey to unlock its mesmerizing aroma. Here's a step-by-step guide to maximize your reed diffuser experience:

1. Begin by carefully opening the packaging and retrieving the reeds from the top of the box. Ensure you place them in a safe and clean location.

2. Open the internal packaging and take out your reed diffuser bottle. Marvel at its beauty and promise of delightful scents.

3. Remove the cap from the bottle with a gentle hand. Now it's time to tackle the reed diffuser plug. Note that these plugs can fit snugly to prevent any spills during transit. It can be helpful to use an object with a solid, flat edge to aid in their removal.

4. Once the plug is successfully removed, replace the diffuser cap on the bottle. Now, gently insert the reeds into the bottle.

5. Allow the reeds to stand undisturbed for approximately 30 minutes. This gives them time to absorb the fragranced liquid.

6. After the waiting period, we recommend flipping the reeds so that the saturated ends are exposed to the air. This will expedite the diffusion process, swiftly filling your space with the captivating fragrance. However, if you prefer, you can leave the reeds as they were, but please note that it may take a bit longer for them to begin diffusing.

7. Now, sit back, relax, and indulge in your effortless fragrance experience. Even if you need to leave the house for shopping or work, rest assured that your reed diffuser will diligently work to infuse your space with divine scents every time you step back in.

How Long Will A Reed Diffuser Last?

That's an excellent question, and it's intriguing how each fragrance holds its own unique diffusion rate. At Mendwick Candles, we strive to provide you with a reed diffuser that lasts between 3 to 4 months, but do keep in mind that this duration can vary due to a range of factors.

If you find yourself frequently flipping the reeds or placing the diffuser in a drafty area, you may notice a slightly faster evaporation rate. But fear not, as this just means you get to savour the captivating scent a bit more often.

Now for some delightful news: once the bottle is empty, you have the option to either recycle it with your regular glass recycling or give it a new purpose by reusing it in creative ways. We believe in sustainability, and our reed diffusers not only bring enchanting fragrances to your home but also contribute to conscious waste management.

So, enjoy the long-lasting presence of our reed diffusers, and when the time comes for a new adventure, rest assured that the bottle can find its way to a new life through recycling or repurposing.

How Many Reeds Should You Use?

We believe that the more, the merrier! That's why our reed diffusers are designed to accommodate 6 thick reeds, giving you the flexibility to tailor your fragrance intensity to your liking.

Tailor your fragrance intensity, for those who crave a strong and captivating fragrance, we recommend using all 6 reeds provided with our reed diffuser. This will create a mesmerizing scent that will fill your space with pure bliss.

However, we understand that some may prefer a more subtle and delicate aroma. If you find fragrances to be too bold or overwhelming, you can reduce the number of reeds used. Simply use 4 or 5 reeds for a milder fragrance that still creates a beautiful ambience.

Discover the perfect blend, to further personalise your fragrance experience, we offer the option to mix different types of reeds. The 3 fibre reeds, with their smooth surface, provide a faster diffusion, while the natural rattan reeds add a touch of texture that usually offer a softer aroma and slower diffusion. If you prefer a fibre-only reed experience, you can easily order these separately.

Choosing to use fewer reeds also comes with the advantage of extending the lifespan of your reed diffuser. By reducing the number of reeds in use, you can enjoy the captivating aroma for an even longer period.


Now that you understand how reed diffusers work and how to maximize their potential, you can truly appreciate the amazing benefits they offer as home fragrance products. Not only do they fill your space with delightful scents, but they also add a touch of style to your home décor.
