You’ll need to flip the reeds once a week to refresh the scent. Once the reeds are completely saturated, you’ll need to replace them with new reeds. You will also need to replace your oil once it starts to lose its scent or if it starts to smell “off” – usually after a month or so.

You can also combine with equal amounts of any of the essential oils we have supplied. Have fun, experiment; make your own blend of up to a total of 25% of oils overall. However, add a smaller percentage if only adding Eucalyptus, as it’s very strong. When choosing those oils that you favour the scent of, add to 75% of your carrier oil: Sweet Almond, Sunflower, or fractionated Coconut. All of the oils supplied will work as repellents; just some a little better than others.
A great alternative to regular kitchen and bathroom cleaning sprays. Eucalyptus oil kills germs and leaves everything smelling fresh and clean. To boost the grease-cutting power for your cleaning spray, also include citrus oils like Lemon, Lemongrass, or Bergamot. You can use them all, or just one that you have a preference for.
To make 2 cups of cleaning spray, use 1 ¾ cups of water, ¼ cup of white vinegar, 15 drops of Eucalyptus oil, and add another 2-7 drops total of the remaining essential oils that you are going to use.
If using as a floor cleaner, cut down the amount of oils to just a few drops of each, as some floors can become slippery because of too much oil applied.
