Scented candles are the biz right now, and I absolutely love them. There are, however, a few things about scented candles that are less ideal. They give off vapours that contain some toxic chemicals, and breathing them for prolonged periods could be harmful.
I’m pretty sure nothing bad will happen when you burn a candle for a few hours a week, but I like my house to smell nice all the time. There are some safer alternatives such as beeswax or soy candles, but these are pretty hard to find, expensive, and hard to make yourself.
Also, you can’t leave candles unattended and in a small space like mine, the smell that comes off when you blow out the candle completely overpowers any of the scented candle scent, haha!
Insert reed diffusers! These don’t burn with a pretty little flame, but they do give off a consistent scent and I think they’re quite aesthetic as well. And the great news is; they’re super easy to DIY using all natural ingredients! By making the reed diffusers yourself, you know exactly what goes in and you can customise the scents and how strong of a scent it will give off.
I’m going to show you how to make your own DIY reed diffuser!
