Easy DIY // Homemade essential oil diffuser
It has been a while since my last DIY project, so when I saw this post over on the blog Valdemarsro for a super easy DIY essential oil diffuser I just knew I had to give it a try! I absolutely love burning scented candles, but we all know that they sadly aren’t very healthy for us, so I have been meaning to give an essential oil diffuser a try for a while now and when I saw just how easy this DIY is, I just had to make one right away!
I was a bit impatient and wanted to give it a try even though I am all out of almond oil and don’t have any baby oil, so I used jojoba oil instead (hence the yellow color) and only made a small batch since I am going to LA on monday. It worked out perfectly though and my livingroom is now filled with the loveliest subtle rose scent – I am definitely making more of these for the rest of the house when I get home! I just love how easy and inexpensive this DIY is + you can completely customize the scents and you have full control over the ingredients, so you are sure that there are no added nasties.
All credit for this idea goes to Ann-Christine from Valdemarsro – make sure to check out her blog if you are not following it already ❤︎
What you’ll need:
Almond oil or baby oil (about 1 deciliter/0.4 cup)
Your favorite essential oils (about 30-50 drops)
A decorative glass bottle
6-10 wooden skewers
Optional: dried flowers petals
Simply add the dried flowers (if you want to use them), the almond or baby oil, essential oils (you can use one or more scents that complement each other, I simply used a rose one) and the wooden skewers to the glass bottle. Stir well and let it rest. The following day you turn the skewers upside down and the diffuser is ready to fill the room with a lovely light and subtle scent from the essential oils, enjoy!
