You know those scent sticks that got immensely popular some years ago? Due to a somewhat stale-smelling wardrobe in the cabin, I thought they might prove a decent anti-odur intervention. Not so keen on spending plentiful of pennies on the matter, I resorted to the mighty internet that proved to have a very simple, budget approved, solution.
After digging out some wooden skewers, essential oils and a wee patterened glass from the cupboards, I was good to go.
The best thing about making your own scentsicles, apart from the money it can save you, is that you can create your own fragrance mix, and adjust the strenght according to preference. Win, win!
- wooden skewers
- glass container
- essential oil (I used peppermint, lemongrass and lavender)
- tap water
- Cut the skewers to a suitable length. The more sticks, the more the scent will spread in the room.
- Mix 1 dl (½ cup) water with 20-30 drops of essential oil in the glass. It is best to start out slow, then add in more drops if you feel the scent is too bland.
- Place the sticks in the glassand voila - you are done!
