Choose a Variant

Our Reed Diffuser Base transforms fragrance and essential oils into high-quality reed diffuser oils. It thins fragrance and essential oils so they flow up the reed easily and provide a bigger scent payoff. Many of our fragrance and essential oils are safe for use in reed diffusers.

Looking for the best performance and the most sustainable diffuser base?
Explore our new CandleScience EcoBase™ Diffuser Solution. Optimized for use with both CandleScience fragrances and essential oils, this base can be used with reed diffusers and other passive diffuser products.

Find your favorite reed diffuser fragrance by using our Fragrance Oil Finder.

Or, make naturally-scented reed diffusers with our reed diffuser approved essential oil collection.

Are all reed diffuser bases the same?
Absolutely Not! There are two big things to watch for:

1. Flow - Our reed diffuser base flows quickly and easily up the reeds, allowing the fragrance or essential oil to reach its strongest throw potential.

2. Safety - Many states have restrictions on the VOC percentage of reed diffusers. VOC's or Volatile Organic Compounds are compounds that are harmful and create indoor air quality problems. Our reed diffuser base is non-toxic, and VOC compliant in all 50 states, so you can be confident that your reed diffusers meet indoor air quality regulations. This product does not contain DPG.

Entiendo las bajas estrellas. A veces el error es nuestro. Y a veces es cuestión de pruebas. No todos los aceites compatibles huelen extremadamente fuerte y agregar más fragancia solo va a obstaculizar el trabajo de las varillas. Así que use la cantidad indicada. Hasta ahora me ha funcionado perfecto Cedarwood y Bambú y Coco. Es demasiado rico y ocupa una habitación grande. Mientras más varillas más alcance tendrá aunque también durará menos tiempo. Pero 6 u 8 varillas son suficientes al menos en estas dos fragancias.

Excellent Reed Base

This reed base is amazing and we are selling our reed diffusers like crazy!
The key to getting the odor from the base to disappear is to stir for 3-4 minutes.
Once the fragrance oil is completely bound to the base, all you smell is the fragrance!

Best Diffuser Base

I don’t know why all the 1 stars… this base works amazing! I use a 5 to 1 ratio and I get nothing but 5 stars on my diffusers!

Works Great

This base works just fine. It takes a very strong fragrance to work with a reed diffuser base to begin with, so I expected that and now just check the IFRA restrictions on how much fragrance can be used. Also, if you are using too much fragrance, you can clog the reeds, so be careful to not do that. If you are using fragrance from another company that has a really thick carrier base, I would not use that with a reed diffuser as it can also clog the reeds. I do agree that it's disappointing to not have an option with the large container where it is actually full. I enjoy reed diffusers in my own home and my customers seem to enjoy the look of your silver containers and this base with natural reeds. Thank you Candlescience!
