I walked into my sister’s bathroom and saw the row of essential oils and asked, “Trying something new?” She educated me on oils, and diffusers a reed diffuser is composed of a bottle or vase partially filled with aromatic oil and reeds. The oil “wicks” up the reeds, causing the exposed ends of the reeds to dissipate the aroma into the air. I also learned Essential oils are one of the best-smelling, naturally antibacterial options for homemade cleaning recipes.
It’s easy to make your own aromatic diffuser I found recipes on this page will show you endless ways how. I will say I didn’t like how they used 1-2 parts High Proof Vodka (or Everclear) or Perfumer’s Alcohol. So, I substituted it with almond oil as my sister vouched for it. If you’re curious, here’s the rest of my shopping list
- essential oil of your choice(I like Young Living and Natures’ Truth)
- sweet almond oil
- diffuser reeds
- glass or ceramic jars with a small neck or opening I love these Hosley’s containers from Amazon
I also found other great ways to use my oils
Scented Tealight Candles : Turn a tea light into a scented candle. Just Remove metal holder from each candle add a two to three drops of essential oil of your choice to the candle holder and place candle in holder.
Smelling Salts : Essential oils can turn a Epsom salt into an amazing smelling salt just add a few drops to Epsom salt shake and place in cute container. Then sprinkle in tub as needed
How are you using essential oils.
