Can I make aromatic oils that will diffuse through tatami sticks myself?

I have store-bought air-fresheners that are little bottles of perfumed oil with what I believe are tatami sticks semi-immersed in the oil. The oil diffuses through the sticks and releases the aroma in to the air.
I find them aesthetically pleasing and also a very subtle and non-gaggy air deodorizer. I've had them in my bathroom and they work well and last a long time. Now I've put some in my living room too. Annoyingly now my supermarket has failed to re-stock them.
As I have some time up my sleeve, I was wondering if I could make perfumed oil myself, using essential oils and something else to dilute it I suppose?
What sort of oil or other agent should I use to dilute the essential oil so that it diffuses through the tatami sticks? Will this work?
