Reed diffusers are a popular and convenient way to add a pleasant scent to your living space. They use natural reeds to diffuse fragrance oils into the air, providing a long-lasting and pleasant aroma. But, how often should you replace the reeds in your diffuser to maintain optimal performance?
The frequency at which you need to replace the reeds in your diffuser can vary depending on a few factors. The first factor to consider is the strength of the scent. If the scent is becoming weaker, it may be time to replace the reeds. This is because the reeds may have become saturated with oil and are no longer able to effectively diffuse the fragrance.
Another factor to consider is the humidity level in your room. High humidity can affect the performance of the reeds, making them less effective in diffusing the scent. In these cases, you may need to replace the reeds more frequently.
Perhaps one of the more important factors are the quality of the reed sticks themselves. There are reed sticks made of: (1) Fibre, (2) Rattan or (3) Bamboo. While Rattan and Bamboo reeds are naturally obtained, Fibre reeds are the result of modern technology, and are indeed the best option as the channels are uniformly designed to avoid as much clogging as possible.
At Hone Aroma, we use 4th generation reed sticks to ensure maximum scent throw & does not require replacing as often as other fibre, rattan or bamboo reeds. Our fibre reeds are not made with glue, but rather the fibre strips are intertwined in a way that does not require glue. This is the healthiest and strongest option to maximise scent strength. You have to try one yourself! If you're going for something strong, try Vanilla Euphoria.
Finally, the type of fragrance oil used in the diffuser will also affect the frequency of reed replacement. Some fragrance oils are thicker than others and can clog the reeds, requiring more frequent replacement.
As a general rule of thumb, it is recommended to replace the reeds in your diffuser every 2-3 months, or when the scent becomes weaker. You can also check the reeds by touch if they are dry and brittle, which means they have reached their limit and need replacement.
In summary, the frequency at which you need to replace the reeds in your diffuser can vary depending on the strength of the scent, humidity level in your room, quality of reeds and type of fragrance oil used. As a general rule of thumb, it is recommended to replace the reeds every 2-3 months or when the scent becomes weaker. Regular reed replacement will help maintain optimal performance and ensure a pleasant and long-lasting.
