DIY your own hydrogel ball reed diffuser

Rather then throwing away bottles from old reed diffusers why not reuse them to make your own!

Give it a bit of a twist by using some of our hydrogel balls which you can get here

All you need is 

  • an old reed diffuser bottle


  • a pack of hydrogel balls
  • Water
  • Essential Oils (pick your favourite)


Step one

Make sure the bottle is nice and clean and ready to be used

Step two

Place a few hydrogel ball into the bottle depending on the size of your bottle. The gel balls used for this post grew to around 1.5cms.

Don't over fill, you can always go back and add more balls later.

Step three

Fill the bottle with water, make sure the balls have plenty of water to absorb, as that's what makes them grow!

Step four

Add a few drops of essential oil. Mine was made for a bedside table so I added Lavender

Step five

Enjoy your home made pretty hydrogel reed diffuser 




I hope you found this easy to follow and made your own!
