DIY Reed Difusser

DIY Aromatherapy Reed Diffuser

You will need: 

  • A glass container with a narrow opening (check thrift stores)
  • 4-5 reed diffuser sticks
  • 1/4 cup carrier oil
  • 20-25 drops of essential oils Best Essential Oils Ever


Mix the essential oils and carrier oil together in the glass container.

Place the diffuser sticks in the container. It will take a while for the oil to travel up the sticks, so speed up the process by flipping the sticks after several hours.

Continue to flip the sticks every few days to refresh the scent.

  • A container with a narrow-opening is preferred for this project since it will slow down evaporation. Another option would be to find a glass container with a cork, and drill holes in it for the reeds.
  • Heavier oils, such as olive oil or jojoba oil, will take longer to travel up the reeds, so for quicker results, stick with lighter oils, like sweet almond.
  • Once the reeds become completely saturated, you’ll need to replace them with new ones. And you’ll also need to replenish your oil supply eventually too–although that will depend on what type of essential oils, container, and carrier oil you are using.

What is an “Urban Medicine Woman”?

We live in a rapidly advancing world. Full of technology, GMO’s, disease, pills for everything, disposable culture, and lack of community connection.

An Urban Medicine Woman takes the old and ignites the new. She is aware of her roots, listens to her inner guidance systems, honors her ancestors, and cares for the future generations.

Gustav Klimt “Hygeia”

An Urban Medicine Woman is educated on what goes in and on her body. She reaches for natural remedies that support a balanced body before she heads to the pharmacy counter.

An Urban Medicine Woman connects with nature no matter how vast the concrete is that surronds her. She plants seeds, waters the sprouts and enjoys her daily harvest. She appreciates the awe of nature and dedicates time to cultivating natural beauty.

An Urban Medicine Woman offeres healing and support to her family, loved ones and community. Through herbs, essential oils, nutrition, whole foods, education, awareness, honesty, celebration and dedication to balance. She is the pillar of grounded health within and around her home.

An Urban Medicine Woman sees the possible future ahead and instead of waiting for it to happen to her, she creates the most  blissful and abundant version of it herself.

There is an Urban Medicine Woman (or man) in each of us.  We just need to to listen, learn, heal, give thanks, and grow together.
