DIY Oil Diffuser

Take a glass container with a smaller opening. This way, the scented oil will take longer to evaporate.

Add 1/4 cup of water, a splash of vodka and 12 drops of your favorite essentail oil.

Place natural bamboo sticks or bbq skewers into the glass container After an hour, flip the sticks so your scent can fill the room.

Tip

  • Rotate the ends of the reeds or skewers once a week to refresh and prolong the fragrance.
  • The smaller the opening at the neck of the glass container the better, this will force the oils to travel up the wick to diffuse their scent rather than evaporating up through the neck.
