Scented Bath Salts
If you love taking hot baths, this is the method for you! Take some Epsom salts and add a few drops of your favorite essential oil. You can even use an essential oils quick reference to combine a few oils if you like!
Then, add a few tablespoons of the scented salt to your hot bath before jumping in. It’s a great way to turn an ordinary bath into a spa-like experience.
Everyone has cotton balls in their homes and they’re cheap to buy if you don’t! To use cotton balls for diffusing essential oils, soak the cotton ball with a few drops of oil and set the cotton ball out on a non-porous surface.
This is also a helpful method if you only have a drop or two left of your favorite oil. Use the cotton to mop out every precious drop of the oil before you toss out the bottle.
Bowl of Pine Cones
Another method of diffusing essential oils without a diffuser is to use some pine cones. You can either buy these from a home goods store or find them outside. Add a few drops of oil to several pinecones and set them in a decorative bowl.
Got an empty spray bottle lying around? Fill the spray bottle with water and add a few drops of essential oil. Then swirl the bottle to combine the oils without changing the scent.
Spray this essential oil room spray on any fabric surfaces to make your room smell wonderful without an essential oil diffuser. It’s ok to use on your clothes as well if you want to use it as a perfume.
