Have you decorated for Christmas yet? I put my tree up on the weekend after Thanksgiving and have been decking the rest of the house out since then. Every year I try to make an ornament or two for the tree. This year, I decided to make an ornament that is both pretty and smells good!
DIY Essential Oil Ornament
- 70 mm Glass Ball Ornament
- Grapeseed Oil
- Essential Oils – orange, cinnamon and fir (or others if these aren’t scents you enjoy)
- Whole Cloves
- Cinnamon Sticks
Pour 1/2-1 Tablespoon of grapeseed oil into the ornament. Then add 5 drops of each scent into the ornament (or more if you really like it).
Add in 1/2 Tablespoon of whole cloves and 2 cinnamon sticks. I had to break mine in order to make them fit in the ornament.
Use an X-ACTO knife or razor blade to cut a couple small holes in the top of the ornament so that the smell can escape. If the ornament seems to be loosing scent over time, add a few more drops of each scent.
Tie some ribbon or twine to the top to hang it from the tree.
What scents would you add?
