When you are shopping for your aromatherapy, it is a good idea to know about what choices exist for your reeds, and about the lifespan of a good quality set before you bring them home. There are good facts to know.
When you are trying to find the diameter of reeds to diffuse your essential oils with, you will rarely find them listed in the package description as they do not vary very often. On average, they are 2.75-3mm. This is of no concern, since it does not affect the success of your aromatic oils being diffused.
When you are looking at the lengths of the reeds, you will have to know how high your oil jar is. The reeds must be at least be as tall as the top of the jar, if not higher.
If the reed stems are too long, you can always cut them down in length. They may also hold themselves in the jar without tipping over. On average, you will find reed lengths as short as 5 inches, or as long as 11 inches.
In order to diffuse a good amount of essence oil, you will want to know how many reeds you should buy.
If you want to diffuse plenty of scent, you can just grab about twelve reed diffuser sticks.
When having your jar or container ready for the oil, you should note how much volume it holds. Then you can gauge how much oil you should pour in. At least half of the jar will be a really good start. That way, the reed diffuser stems can be thoroughly dipped in the oil.
Sometimes, the reed diffusers will become thoroughly saturated with the essence oils and can not carry the oils up through the stems any longer. This is natural, as over time the oil's presence takes up the porous space, especially if it is of a lesser quality.
For the reed diffusers to dispense as usual, you can just replace the old diffuser sticks with brand new ones.
Sometimes, cheaper quality essence oils are mixed in with other agents that make it too thick to travel up the diffuser sticks. This may be the case if you are finding your reed diffuser sticks not dispensing any scent after only a few weeks or less.
