DIY HOME AIR FRESHENER! Reed Diffuser make for easy homemade holiday gift ideas. This tutorial includes 3 Festive Recipes

Homemade air fresheners are a great way to get started into DIYs, as well as adding a personal touch to your home. But arguably the most compelling reason to start making your own fragrance diffuser sticks is that – store bought reed diffusers are expensive! I appreciate that some might also have concerns over the ingredients found in conventional air fresheners, so this video on how to make reed diffusers with essential oils, provides a great non-toxic air freshener alternative.

For my reed diffuser oil, I used Almond oil as the base. You could also use safflower oil, however I don’t recommend using any other type of oil and I explain the reason why in the tutorial. For the 3 Festive recipes fragrances I have used a mixture of pure essential oils and some fragrance oils. Fragrance oils are synthetic fragrances that can cause irritation when they come in contact with the skin, for that reason I have made sure to provide reed diffuser essential oil recipes as well. Whenever I create DIYs that are intended to be used or applied on the body, I only use essential oils – however, as reed diffusers are air fresheners, I opted for a couple recipes that use fragrance oils so that I could get my desired festive scents.
