Troubleshooting Guide: Why Isn't My Reed Diffuser Working

Troubleshooting Guide: Why Isn't My Reed Diffuser Working

Are you experiencing frustration with your reed diffuser not spreading its delightful scent throughout your home as expected? At Scent Australia Home, we understand the importance of a fragrant atmosphere, which is why we're here to help you troubleshoot common issues and get your reed diffuser back on track.


 Potential Reasons for a Non-Functioning Reed Diffuser


  1. Improper Placement: One of the most common reasons for a reed diffuser not working effectively is incorrect placement. Ensure that your reed diffuser is placed in a well-ventilated area away from direct sunlight and heat sources. Placing it in a drafty area or near air conditioning vents can also affect its performance.
  1. Clogged Reeds: Over time, dust, dirt, and residue from the fragrance oil can accumulate on the reeds, hindering their ability to diffuse the scent. To remedy this, simply remove the reeds from the bottle and gently wipe them clean with a paper towel. You can also flip the reeds regularly to promote even diffusion.
  1. Expired Fragrance Oil: Like any other product, fragrance oils have a shelf life. If your reed diffuser isn't emitting a strong scent despite proper placement and clean reeds, it may be time to replace the fragrance oil. At Scent Australia Home, we offer a wide range of high-quality fragrance oils to rejuvenate your reed diffuser.

 Solutions to Revive Your Reed Diffuser


  1. Refresh the Fragrance Oil: If you suspect that the fragrance oil in your reed diffuser has lost its potency, simply refill the bottle with fresh fragrance oil. Choose from our luxurious selection of scents to breathe new life into your space.
  1. Replace the Reeds: If cleaning the reeds doesn't improve the diffusion of the scent, it may be time to replace them altogether. Our premium-quality reeds are designed to efficiently disperse fragrance throughout your home, ensuring a consistent and long-lasting scent experience.
  1. Adjust Placement: Experiment with different locations in your home to find the optimal placement for your reed diffuser. Moving it to a different room or adjusting its position within a room can make a significant difference in its performance.

Base notes of sandalwood, musk, and Amber are infused in this accord, leading to a sensual background and exquisite aroma.

Rose Berry Oil (15ml)

As described in the inspiration of this oil, "There is a sweet disposition in breaking the boundaries of vulnerability. Without such, we are stagnant, and life can appear bleak. But investing in colour through deconstructing personal barriers will inevitably bring what you seek."

The Scent Australia's Home Rose Berry diffuser oil is the colour you need to invest in to give you what you seek. The beautiful and sensual fruity accord of blackcurrant with rose petals is complemented with hints of fir needle, clove, lemon peel and musk to complete its sweet aroma.

Adventure Oil (15ml)

Suppose you are an adventurous spirit looking to go on a quest with your scent, then the adventure oil will be perfect for you. The bursts of Mandarin, Bergamot and blackcurrant take you to a heart of Pink pepper, jasmine and roses, leading to a highly sensual aroma and a touch retro that characterize this creation. 

Middle notes of patchouli, sandalwood, oakmoss and American cedar complement this diffuser oil fragrance. Adventure oil is complete with a base note of Amber, vanilla and hyper-sensual musks that leaves behind a lasting and energetic scent.

Arabian Jasmine & Marigold Oil (15ml)

Drawing inspiration from the surrounding landscape, Arabian Jasmine & Marigold works to marry the notes of bright florals with the precious delicacies of jasmine. Jasmine Sambac heroes this scent, with blossoms hand-picked for fragrant infusion. 

A middle note of energizing marigold is infused in the mix to accompany this scented account. Base notes of Ylang-Ylang, Honey and Benzoin complete the ArabianJasmine & Marigold Oil soft fragrance. Comparable to the gloss of a white pearl, the delicate scent can relax a room and offer an invisible embrace to those that step foot in its presence.
