Confession time! For the longest time I didn’t know how to use reed diffusers. I remember receiving a rather expensive one a few years ago, as an extra in a gift bag and was totally baffled by what I was meant to do with it. I ended up giving it to my Mum – much to her delight.
I was all the more intrigued to finally get to grips with them again, after spotting that Heyland & Whittle had them in their range. I spoke of the love I have for the candle of theirs, that I reviewed a few weeks ago. You can read that post here.
This has had pride of place on the window sill in the living room for weeks now and its done a stirling job of keeping the room smelling pleasant. I’ve been using the Coconut Vanilla and Black Pepper. Coconut and Vanilla are my favourite scents so I was keen to see how would perform. To renew the scent, you simply, flip the sticks upside down in the jar, taking care not to spill the heavily fragrant oil. The scent distributes well, without being overbearing, leaving a subtle scent behind. I don’t like room scents which ‘drown’ you and this does the job of leaving the room smelling nice, but remaining in the background. It’s nearing the bottom now and has easily lasted 7+ weeks and still has a few more weeks left in it.
Diffusers make a great alternative to the traditional aerosol air fresheners, which can often smell chemical-like and synthetic. Available in ten scents, the refills are an easy way to make your diffuser last longer. Check out the alternative scents and full range here.
