While many diffusers are battery-powered or electric (and potentially eyesores in the home) the minimalist beauty of this traditional reed diffuser embodies an air of tranquility. The scent of essential oils will harmonize your home with peace after a long day out-and-about. A glass jar, reeds, and oil are all you need for a reed diffuser. Your jar is hand-blown glass made at the Cristaluc workshop in Tonalá.
Includes: Set of 6 reeds

THE STORY BEHIND THE PRODUCT
Artisan Organization: Cristaluc
Few artforms will put you in as much awe at earth’s materials and their chemical processes as hand blown glass. What was once a hot and incoherent blob is now a cool and smooth new drinking vessel.
It takes a talented artisan indeed to form molten glass into elegant, coherent shapes. Many such artisans live in the city of Tonalá in the Mexican state of Jalisco, a handicraft hub, especially of pottery and glass.
Dedicated to preserving this artform, Cristaluc was established in 2001 and today employs 40 local artisans. The company provides its artisans a steady income and a supportive and inspiring space to practice their art. The process of making your new glass involved 8 to 14 glassmakers working as team.
Despite its hot and blob-like beginnings, we hope this vessel brings you (or your flowers) some cool, clarifying moments.
