Today I’ve decided to show you the result of my weekend DIY project. It was a 10 minute DIY project (again). I made an essential oil diffuser. Now I have three (in three different rooms, of course). I like oil diffusers because the fragrance is dispensed lightly in the air and it can last for weeks. All you have to do is to turn the sticks upside-down every few days, when they look dry.
So, how to make an essential oil diffuser? I took an empty oil bottle, which looks more like a perfume bottle. I cleaned the bottle. I had some bamboo sticks at home – you can buy bamboo barbecue sticks, if you don’t have them at home or can’t find them elsewhere.
For the diffuser oil I used: 1/4 cup of baby oil, 3 tablespoons vodka and 15 to 20 drops of essential oil (I used two essential oils this time: sandalwood and lavender). I mixed all together in the bottle. Then I placed bamboo sticks in the bottle and I turned the sticks upside-down for the first time after a couple of hours. Done.
I like to make my own diffuser oil, because you can choose your favorite scents and mix and match them as you please.
