How To Refill Your Reed Diffuser

Following countless requests from visitors at our shows, we are happy to announce the long awaited launch of our Reed Diffuser Refills!

Available in all of our reed diffuser fragrances, our refills allow you to switch and change your fragrances without the need to replace your diffuser bottle. These are also a great option if you have your own decorative diffuser or glass bottle.

Follow just a few simple steps to fill your old diffuser bottle with your favourite fragrance that will last 6-9 months!

When you’re ready to refill your reed diffuser, discard the old reeds and unscrew the wooden cap. Place the wooden cap somewhere safe – you’ll need it again when you’ve added your new fragrance oil!

With the bottle empty, wash it out thoroughly and allow it to completely dry for 48 hours.

Once dry, place the bottle on a non-porous surface (such as a kitchen worktop or glass table) and insert the funnel supplied with your refill into your diffuser bottle.

Remove the plastic cap from your refill bottle and use the funnel to carefully pour the fragrance oil into the bottle. Remove the funnel and replace the wooden cap on the bottle, making sure to clean any spills from the bottle and surfaces.

Each time you refill your diffuser, you should also replace your reeds to make sure you get the most out of your new fragrance. Insert new reeds into your diffuser, splay and enjoy the beautiful fragrance of your refilled diffuser.

Please be sure to recycle the plastic bottle, cap and funnel from your diffuser refill!

The 8 Fragrance Families

What type of fragrances do you like?
This is a question I ask new visitors when they are attempting to ‘Stop & Sniff’ every candle fragrance on display at the events I attend. The response usually falls into three categories… “I don’t really know”, “All of them” or “I’ll know it when I smell it”.
As I produce over 50 different fragrance blends for my scented candles, reed diffusers and scented stones, it is impossible to try all of them at one occasion. So here is my first blog which I hope will enable you to develop a clearer idea of what you like.

Fragrance is an incredibly personal choice and is based on any number of conscious or subconscious factors. The right fragrance can evoke powerful memories, reflect or even alter your mood and even calm your mind and body. The starting point is to identify the fragrance families that you enjoy the most considering both your mood and the season.

The 8 Fragrance Families:
Citrus – Zesty and refreshing scents that awaken your senses such as; orange, lemon, lime, grapefruit, lemongrass and bergamot.
Floral – From the relaxing scent of lavender, some of our favourite floral blends include freesia, jasmine, honeysuckle, bluebells and sweet peas.
Fresh – Light, clean scents such as fresh linen, baby powder and aquatic ocean waves that evoke a sense of blissfulness.
Fruity – 
Fragrances that smell good enough to eat! Our most popular sweet and juicy, fruity fragrances include; cherry, watermelon, peach, pineapple, pear and pomegranate.
Green – Fresh from the herb garden, mint and basil make very popular ‘green’  blends along with eucalyptus, bamboo, bay leaf and chamomile.
Spicy – Rich and spicy fragrances with hints of cinnamon,ginger, nutmeg and cloves. Typically popular at Christmas but ideal for warm, cosy scents all year round.
Sweet – Make your home smell like freshly baked treats… without the hard work! Vanilla and almond based blends bring a touch of sweetness to our scented candles.
Woody – Natural, rich and often sensual  – sandalwood, cedarwood and nag champa form a popular woody base for our fragrance blends.

Things to consider in choosing a fragrance:

  • What room are you choosing your candle or diffuser for? A bathroom might need a completely different fragrance to a lounge or bedroom.
  • What time of year is it? In autumn and winter, we like heavier fragrances like Autumn Fruits (Blackcurrant, Raspberry and Fig) whereas in the Spring and Summer we tend to choose more lighter, cleaner, citrus fragrances like Oriental Fusion (Lemongrass & Ginger)
  • What mood are you trying to create? Are you looking to create a calm environment or something more energising?

So, I hope that my first blog will help you to choose the right fragrance for you, but if not… then do stop at my stand or visit my studio and sniff them all!
