Kistos Reed Diffuser


In Greece we call it kistos, a native Cretan flower that is used for centuries for its soothing and wound healing properties. But you may have heard it as rock rose or labdanum from the oil that derives from its stems and petals. And although the name may imply a typical rose, kistos’ scent is anything but rose-like. In fact, it‘s like nothing you have smelled before: An oriental woody, almost leathery aroma, yet irresistably nectarous.

Kistos is made from Cistus Creticus essential oil along with honey to balance out its strong animalic nature and patchouli to bring out its lovely floral notes and make it even more intriguing to the senses.

Our Reed Diffusers are the ideal flame-free option for any room of your home or office. They provide a steady and long-lasting scent for up to 4 months thanks to the superior quality fiber reeds that do not clog and do not collect dust.

Care & Safety

Always trim wicks to 0,5cm before lighting. The first time you light your candle, let it burn for 3-4 hours to allow the melted wax to reach the edge of the container and to prevent your candle from tunneling.

Candle Safety
Do not place a burning candle near anything that can easily catch fire like curtains, clothes and papers. Place candle on a stable, heat-resistant surface. Keep lit candles away from drafts, ceiling fans and any air currents. Never leave a burning candle unattended. Extinguish all candles when you leave a room or before going to sleep or if the flame gets too close to the candle holder or container. A candle should not be burned for more than four hours at a time. Discontinue burning a candle when 0,5cm of wax remains in the container.

Diffuser Safety

Slowly remove the stopper with a gentle, twisting motion and place the reeds into the bottle. Flip the reeds bi-weekly. Do not place the bottle on any surface that may be damaged by perfume oils. Do not get on skin or clothing. Keep out of reach of children & pets. Do not place bottle, reeds or cap directly of fabric or finished surface as it may cause damage. Evaporation will vary due to different air conditions in each space. Please use caution when removing or replacing the stopper.
