Today I’m going to share with you how to make a really easy diy lemongrass room diffuser. It’s a super simple gift you can give to your coworkers, teachers, friends or family members or use to make your home smell amazing. We chose lemongrass for this one but honestly you can use whatever combination you like best. Here’s a look at how you can make this diy room diffuser in just minutes…
Glass container – keep in mind the wider the neck the quicker the oil will diffuse so choose a container that has a slender neck.
Wood or bamboo reeds
Carrier oil – we used sweet almond oil
Essential oil – we used lemongrass but you can choose your favorite combination to completely customize this project
Start with a clean and dry glass container. This vintage container belonged to my Granny’s but you can find glass containers similar to this at most thrift or craft stores.
If you’re giving this diffuser as a gift you’ll want to make sure the stopper or lid seals well.
Pour the carrier oil into the glass container.
Add about 20 drops of essential oil (s) per ¼ cup carrier oil
If you’re giving this diffuser as a gift, add a tag that describes the scent or gather a few sprigs of your favorite flowers and herbs (these are from our Texas Sage bush) and wrap reeds with a pretty ribbon.
Then attach reed bundle to diffuser container.
If you’re keeping the diffuser to use at home, place the reeds directly into the container and lightly stir.
Leave the reeds soaking in the essential oil mixture for 1-2 hours, then flip them so the oil soaked ends show.
As always use caution and care and keep room diffuser away from children and curious pets.
You can create a room diffuser in about 5 minutes provided you have all the materials at the ready, it’s that easy. Each diffuser can be completely customized for a specific recipient or play around with the essential oil combinations to make a signature scent for your home.
See you guys back here tomorrow. I hit the treasure trail with my mom while I was visiting our hometown last weekend so I’ll share with you what I brought home. Until next time, I’ll see you on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest.
