The Difference Between Reed Diffusers and Traditional Candle Diffusers


Reed Diffusers is a fireless aromatherapy product that absorbs essential oils from the bottle and diffuses the scent into the air via a rattan or fiber wand. This product is made of rattan and aromatherapy containers that work by capillary action to draw the aromatherapy liquid to the surface of the rattan and evaporate it.Reed Diffusers require no ignition, are safe, and have a long-lasting scent for a variety of indoor environments such as homes and offices.

Here's how Reed Diffusers differ from traditional candle scents:

Scent Release Methods

Reed Diffusers: Absorb the scented liquid in the bottle through the cane and distribute the scent into the air. Scent release is continuous and even, with no additional handling required.

Traditional Candle Diffusers: By lighting a candle, the candle melts and releases the scent. Scent release requires ignition and will diminish as the candle burns.


Reed Diffusers: without the need for an open flame to fuel the fire, this aromatherapy diffuser is ideal for use in homes with children and pets, reducing the risk of fire.

Traditional Candle Diffusers: Candle diffusers require candles to be lit, with the presence of an open flame, posing a fire risk, especially when left unattended.

Maintenance and Ease of Use

Reed Diffusers: These aroma diffusers require very little maintenance and only require occasional flipping of the canes to enhance scent release.

Traditional Candle Diffusers: Candle diffusers require the candle to be lit and extinguished regularly, and the candle needs to be burned gradually to release the scent.


Reed Diffusers: typically last from weeks to months, depending on the amount of liquid and environmental conditions.

Traditional Candle Diffusers: Depending on the size of the candle and how often it is used, usually between a few hours and a few days.

Fragrance Concentration

Reed Diffusers: Aromatherapy diffusers have a softer, more even scent that is not overpowering and is suitable for long-term use.

Traditional Candle Diffusers: The scent concentration of aromatherapy candles can be adjusted by the burning time, the scent is stronger when lit, but will gradually weaken after extinguished.
