If you're looking to fill your home with delightful scents that will waft gently around your home but are looking to avoid the smoke that comes with candles, then making your own homemade reed diffuser is the way to go.

I remember seeing reed diffusers pop up in magazines and fancy home good stores before becoming such a staple of home decor that you could find some cheap version of a reed diffuser in nearly any store. The problem is that some of the available reed diffusers have unneeded chemicals you might not want floating around your home in the air that you and your family breath everyday. Plus, making them for yourself is way more fun, not to mention you can make your own diffuser with the perfect scent that reflects you and your home.

How to Make a Homemade Essential Oil 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.

One reason I particularly wanted to try making a diffuser using water rather than an oil base was that many people complain about the oil (not the essential oils) in other homemade reed diffusers going rancid after only a day or two.

Personally, that's not something I want to worry about so I decided to just try it with water.

I found a post at ourhomemadehappiness.com who has tried doing the same thing with success, so I figured it was worth a shot.
