DIY Reed Diffuser Refills

A common question, I have an empty diffuser bottle and sticks and it’s to nice to throw away? Can I make my own refill when my Diffuser runs out?

 So here are a couple of easy options for you!

How To Make Homemade Reed Diffusers
This is a great way to disperse Emu Ridge essential oils around your home.

A glass or ceramic container with a narrow opening at the top.
Essential oils of your choice Emu Ridge Eucalyptus and Lemon Mrytle work great together.

To keep it natural use a thin lite oil like Sweet Almond or Safflower Oil. You can also use either Vodka and water or rubbing alcohol, Reeds or bamboo skewers. You can find replacement reeds online pretty inexpensively, but if you have bamboo skewers in the kitchen or craft room, just trim off the pointy ends before use.

Below are 3 recipes you can use to make your own naturally without those nasty chemicals. Number one is the easiest!

1. If you’re using an oil base, you will want to use 30% essential oil to 70% base oil. You can experiment with the percentages to see what works best for you. If you find that the oil is not getting drawn up the reeds  at the speed at you would like then try adding in a little vodka to help.

2. If you’re using the vodka or rubbing alcohol and water mixture, you will want to add approximately 12 drops of essential oils with 1/4 cup of water then add about 2 tablespoons of vodka or rubbing Alcohol this makes it water soluble.

3. Pour the mixture into your bottle and place one end of the reeds or skewers into the solution, allowing it to saturate the reeds. Then take them out, and place the opposite ends into the bottle. You will want to rotate which ends are in the scent solution about once a week.

HINT: The rattan reeds work much better than bamboo skewers as they have hollow channels through them which  help to wick the oil up them and disperse the scent.

Have fun!

SENSORY PLAY WITH RICE  HAS MANY LEARNING BENEFITS:

  • Sensory play encourages children to manipulate and mould materials, building up their fine motor skills and coordination.
  • Sensory play uses all 5 senses, but the sense of touch is often the most frequent. Toddlers and children process  information through their senses. They learn through exploring these.
  • Sensory play is unstructured, not  product-oriented; it is the purest sense of exploratory learning.
  • Self-esteem: sensory play offers kids the opportunity for self-expression because there is no right answer and children feel safe to change or experiment with what they are doing.
  • Language development- experimenting with language and trying new words.

Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Oil

This unique oil is the only one of it’s kind in the world. It is distilled from the leaf of the Kangaroo Island Narrow Leaf Mallee (Eucalyptus cneorifolia). Emu Ridge is the only commercial Eucalyptus Distillery remaining in South Australia.
Distillation of the oil began in the 1880’s and dozens of stills were established, making it one of the Island’s major industries.
One company, F.H.Faulding & Co purchased Emu Ridge in 1923, establishing two plantations in 1938 for the purpose of systematically harvesting it on a rotational basis. (The Narrow Leaf responds well to pruning.) Most success, however, was achieved by individuals who set up stills as a seasonal sideline.
Our oil is distilled in the traditional method at Emu Ridge. The leaf is placed into a pot containing water, beneath which a fire is lit, steam carrying the oil is passed through a system of cooling pipes, the oil separates and is piped off into containers. The raw oil undergoes another refining process to produce the final product crystal clear oil.
Native farming is far better for our environment, no sprays and chemicals, a great renewable resource and natural product.
