  1. How long can you use the reeds? Do they eventually loose effectiveness and have to be replaces with new clean ones to keep the scent working?

  2. Love this idea. I have lots of amber bottles that I am not using and it does work. I use the very porous reed stick. I also use grape seed oil as carrier oil, clear vodka, peppermint, lemon and frankincense essential oil. Smell is strong.

  3. Sounds good I'm new to this diffusing with eo
    But I just put a few drops into my old empty gallon water bottle which I cut at the bottom so it's wide then I wrap it in strong zinc oxide tape to make it look half decent with water and leave in any room and it works grand.. or just use the old diffusers that are finished with bamboo sticks I score down the middle to make that tunnel if you can't get the ones you n video but good video I subbed with that ole wink
    For the bedroom idea 😂
    Gonna have ta try that but not bad for a bloke me thinks..essential oils are so helpful to us big time
    Keep on truck ✌🇨🇮

  4. Loads of negative reviews, Id try adding some castille soap as a dispersant. Maybe the eo is locked up in the oil or the vodka makes it evaporates too quickly.

  5. I found this didn't work for me. I followed the directions exactly, got the correct type of reeds, and it just doesn't smell unless you stick your head right in the bottle. I added more essential oils but it still doesn't give off any smell. I wonder if there's any way to tweak the recipe because I was really hoping it would work. All your cleaning product recipes have been the bomb, though!

  6. Like many other commenters, it didn’t work for me either.
    After thinking it over here are my thoughts about it:
    1. You mentioned that water and oil don’t mix. That’s true. But Vodka is made out of about 60% water isn’t it?!?
    2. More over you said the vodka is used to thin the oil. How exactly can a solvent that contains 60% water (vodka) thin any oil?
    3. You mentioned that if we choose to use rubbing alcohol we should use one with at least 90% because the 75% version won’t work. So how would you expect vodka, which only has 40% alcohol to work??
    4. I’m just sad I wasted the ingredients on this alchemy trial before thinking it through..
