    Notes

    From time to time, you can flip the reeds over to refresh the scent. But once the scent starts to fade (or the liquid evaporates), it’s best to make a new batch instead of topping off with fresh essential oils, which may cause the mix to separate and make it difficult for the liquid to travel up the reeds and diffuse into the air.
