Remember reed diffusers? Growing up, there were always reed diffusers around my house—one in the bathroom and one in the living room. Slowly reed diffusers started disappearing, with candles and plug-in diffusers dominating the home scent game. But, don't sleep on reed diffusers—they're actually really amazing to give your home all-day fragrance.

I love candles, but if you run them for hours on end, the wicks get too long and things start getting sooty. And because essential oil diffusers have to be plugged in, you're limited in where you can place them. Plus, you have to fill them with water, which is honestly sometimes annoying.

Because reed diffusers just involve reeds sitting in oil, reed diffusers are easy peasy, look pretty, and smell amazing with minimal effort. All you have to do is flip the reeds over about once per week. Shop eight reed diffusers below.
