I’ve said it 100 times: smell is a significant factor in how we perceive a place. While I enjoy diffusing essential oil in my home, changing out tea lights or refilling the water tank on an electric diffuser can be a hassle. It’s also why I love room diffusers, especially those naturally scented (those artificial scents can be too much for some people, don’t they think ?!).? You can make your room diffusers at home using essential oils.
You will need the following:
- You can use a glass vessel that has a narrow opening for slowing evaporation. (I got mine from Eroma, but you could reuse a container already in your possession)
- You can use fractionated coconut or baby oil.
- Modern Essentials Mindset Collection) Fifteen drops of essential oils. Modern Essentials Mindset Collection)
- To help the oils absorb into the reeds, use two tablespoons of rubbing alcohol or vodka.
- You can also choose to use dried or preserved flowers.
- 1. Mix liquids (carrier oil, essential oils, and alcohol) in your glass vessel.
- Add preserved or dried flowers to the vessel to give it a luxe spa feel.
- 3. Add the reeds to the glass vessel. These reed sticks come in different thicknesses (standard is 3mm, medium is 5mm, and extra thick is 9mm) and colors, such as white, black, and natural. White is an option to achieve a coastal look. I used 5mm reeds.
- To refresh the fragrance, turn the diffusers around at least once per week.
- It’s so easy to make your homemade room diffusers using essential oils! You can change the formula and use any essential oil you want. In the winter months, think of earthy scents and woody notes. In the summer, opt for zestier fragrances.
