Fragrance sticks or reed diffusers have been popular for a while now, but some hit you over the head with a cloying, overpowering smell. Sweet Grass Farm’s have just the right intensity. Deb Ludington, the founder of Sweet Grass Farm, insists on using only pure fragrance oils undiluted by water or fillers. Her fragrance sticks are easy to use and elegant to look at. The absorbent reeds wick up the oil, which evaporates when it hits the air and releases a discreet but sweet scent. If the sticks get dry, you just turn them upside down in the clear glass jar for a fresh wave of fragrance.
At Daily Grommet’s headquarters, we’ve been using Sweet Grass Farm diffusers for more than two years. The scents are incredible. Pure Lavender captures the iconic, herbal scent of lavender, while New England Woods smells like fresh pine and holidays. Fig & Cedarwood is exotic and woody, Lemon Verbena melds bright lemon with an earthy base, and Citrus Blossom exudes the floral sweetness of orange blossom. These fragrance sticks make a great gift for your favorite friends, hosts, dorm dwellers or yourself.
Deb likes to say that sprays and incense are out, and fragrance sticks are in. We think she’s got it just right. The nose knows.
