    Hi everyone
    I'm about to start making reed diffusers using EOs only, not fragrance oils.
    I was wondering if anyone else makes them, and if so which base they use, popular blends etc.
    I can't start yet though because I've been sick off and on for 6 weeks with a flu like virus, and I can't even smell Eucalyptus! I tried to make some tried and tested blends and they all smelt vile; clearly my nose skills are malfunctioning.
    Can't wait to get started properly!

    I think the most common base in the uk is Augeo - it's the one I used when I was testing.

    It's been awhile since I did reed diffusers. I used WSP base (I think) but couldn't find it. Here's some interesting info from MMS on DPG to increase EOs scent and make it longer lasting.

    https://www.thesage.com/catalog/products/Dipropylene-Glycol.html

    SINUS RELIEF BLEND
    56 grams Camphor, White EO
    15 grams Eucalyptus EO
    29 grams Menthol Crystals
    100 grams TOTAL

    Yep, that's the one I'm using.
