Everyone likes to walk into a good-smelling home. It brightens your mood instantly and makes you feel more relaxed. Why would you restrict that act of self-care to only when you light a candle? Sure, some people live in homes where there’s at least five candles waiting in the wings, but candles only work when they’re lit. When you walk in the door, you could still smell the gross garbage you forgot to take out, despite lighting candles last night. The scent doesn’t linger very long. Changes your life (and nose) with the best reed diffusers. Reed diffusers give you continuous fresh fragrance with none of the drama of a candle. Keep your drama confined to your Selling Sunset or Bachelor obsession, where it belongs.
Reed diffusers consist of a small glass vase, reed sticks and a combo of essential oils and other scents. You put the oil in the glass and then the reeds in the glass. That’s it. You’re done. It takes a few days for the reed to absorb the oil to create fragrant smells, but then they are off and running. These diffusers can last as long as 90 days, and then you can further extend their lives by flipping them upside down, so the dry end is in the oil. After the sticks are truly unusable, you can replace the sticks and keep using the oil.
Basically, it’s time to break-up with your high-maintenance flame.

2. Cocod’or Rose Flower Reed Diffuser
This diffuser takes it to a new level—beyond just elegant sticks. You get a real preserved flower and a special rose stick to make this diffuser an Instagram-worthy centerpiece in your home.

This scent smells like white laundry, citrus and mint to mimic the smell of clean cotton.
