Due to the viscosity of both the diffuser base and the oils, we would advise measuring these in grams to ensure that you are using the correct percentages.
We advise using 8-10% of concentrated fragrance oil with 92-90% of base. We typically use 15-20% of fragrance and then 85-80% Augeo, however, this will very much depend on the fragrance. We can only recommend testing to ensure you are happy with the finished product.
This has been broken down below for our 100ML and 165ML bottles –
100ML - (80/20) 80G of base to 20G of fragrance or (85/15) – 85G of base to 15G of fragrance.
165ML – (80/20) 132G of base to 33G of fragrance or (85/15) – 140.25G of base to 24.75G of fragrance.
We have found that less is more when using essential oils. We would advise testing with the ratios of 85/15 or 90/10. This has been broken down below for our 100ML and 165ML bottles –
100ML - (85/15) 85G of base to 15G of fragrance or (90/10) – 90G of base to 10G of essential oil.
165ML – (85/15) 140.25G of base to 24.75G of fragrance or (90/10) – 148.5G of base to 16.5G of essential oil.
Please ensure to check the IFRA certificate for each fragrance to ensure that it is suitable for use in a diffuser. This can be found on the product page of the website.
Once the base and the oil are in your diffuser bottle – tighten your cap with the stopper or EPE wad – and give it a really good shake.
We have two types of reeds available in different lengths and colours. These are rattan reeds and fibre reeds.
Rattan reeds are made using natural rattan – due to the nature of the product, these reeds can vary in appearance.
Fibre reeds are made from synthetic materials and are uniform in appearance.
You may be able to use 6-8 of the longer reeds (3.5 x 250) or five or six of the shorter reeds (6mm x 175mm.
