Easy DIY Essential Oil Reed Diffuser

Everyone loves their home to smell nice, and making your own homemade essential oil diffuser is a great way to do that without having to spring for more expensive candles or reed diffuser oils to do the job.

Fast and Easy Homemade Essential Oil Diffuser

OK, here's a really quick tip to make your house smell awesome with a homemade essential oil diffuser.

If the idea of little wax particles and smoke floating around your house is a turn off, smoky incense bugs you, or if you just want to try something new to make your house smell great this diffuser is for you. You might take one look at the picture above and think to yourself that it doesn't look like a diffuser.
