What Can I Expect
Take part in a reed diffuser workshop and create your personalised perfume for your home! During this two hour workshop in Bexley, Kent, you will be making reed diffusers that’ll bring fragrance and freshness to your home.
Your experience is hosted by Paula, who founded her artisan soap, skincare and home fragrance business in 2014. Paula uses only the very best ingredients for her hand-crafted products - and they are all natural. She has created a range of uplifting and calming diffusers, with enticing aroma combinations such as Frosted Birch & Juniper, Sandalwood & Black Pepper and Velvet Peony & Oud.
So how do reed diffusers work? The reed sticks (usually made from rattan) are placed in a bottle of fragrance oil. The reeds absorb the oil and the scent diffuses into the air. It’s a very natural process with using an environmentally friendly base making it one of the best ways to fragrance a room. The scent is released over time, so it’s not overpowering either.
During your workshop Paula will teach you all about the best carrier bases to use for diffusers and how to create the scents, as well as chatting to you about how you use your reed diffuser. For example, the more reeds you have, the stronger the scent will be, but it does mean you will use more oil.
And similarly, if you’re wondering how long your reed diffuser will last, it all depends on the quantity of oil used and the number of reeds. You’ll pick up lots of tips like turning your reeds around when the tips are dry and the best ways of replacing the carrier base.
In the two hours that’ll you spend with Paula, you’ll learn all there is to know about making your own reed diffusers. All reed diffuser workshops are hands-on too, so you’ll be creating the scents for your very own personalised reed diffuser that you’ll be taking home with you.
