Reed diffusers are an easy way to add natural scent to a room without burning candles or spraying artificial fragrances. But buying new diffusers -- the vial of oil, the container and reeds, and all the packaging -- can be wasteful and expensive. Instead, buy a refill oil and use it in an old waterproof vase with a handful of Chinese takeout bamboo chopsticks as the reeds. You’ll save a lot of money and get the same effect.
