    Why a reed diffuser? These are much safer to use as opposed to candles (though we obviously still love a candle), and they require basically zero effort from you – all you need to do is turn the reeds every now and then. Great for pet owners and parents, reed diffusers needn’t be watched around inquisitive hands (or paws), just place them well out of the way to do their job. Perhaps on a bookshelf, atop a chest of drawers, or on a high console table. The best part? You can control how much scent is released when using a reed diffuser – add more reeds to the mix for a stronger scent, remove to make it subtle. Where to use a reed diffuser? You can pop one of these in your bathroom, to keep it smelling lovely all of the time, in a hallway – to greet your guests on arrival – or in a living area, for a constant breath of (lovely smelling) fresh air. Also, a good quality reed diffuser will last for up to six months of use, depending on how many reeds you are using. Remember: you can get refills for certain reed diffusers, so you can top them up after use, instead of buying the entire thing again.
