I have a fun and very inexpensive crafty idea to share with y’all- make your own mini essential oil diffuser! We all love great scents, right? We love for our car to smell good, for our closets and drawers to smell good, for our bathrooms to smell fresh! However, unfortunately many air fresheners at the store contain chemicals and toxins and other ingredients that aren’t the best. We love to use pure essential oils at our house as a natural alternative. We do have an ultrasonic diffuser that we use to create wonderful smells instead of using plug-ins and artificial fragrances scented candles. However, there are times when those larger diffusers don’t fit into smaller spaces! That is why I came up with this DIY essential oil diffuser. Plus, it is to so quick and easy to make!
This Mini Essential Oil Diffuser is a great way to squeeze a lovey smell into a smaller space. The felt on these are the perfect diffuser and the sticky backing make them easy to add to any space…your car, your office, your closet. This homemade diffuser can be placed anywhere for your aromatherapy enjoyment! Are you ready to make your own essential oil diffuser? You won’t believe how easy this is!
Homemade Small Essential Oil Diffuser Tutorial
Supplies Needed for your Mini Essential Oil Diffuser:
- Felt Circles (Like the ones you put on the bottom of chairs to protect your floors. They can be found at any hardware store.)
- Favorite Essential Oils of Your Choice (My favorite scent for this is the Young Living Purification essential oil blend and Orange together. It can cancel out the strong scent of a litter box in just a few minutes.)
How To Make Mini Essential Oil Diffuser:
The great thing about the Felt Pads Furniture Feet Floor Protectors is that the felt is nice and thick. This means that it does a great job of absorbing and holding the drops of essential oil you will add.
Grab one of the felt circles and your Young Living Oils. Place 3 drops of Purification oil and 3 drops of Orange oil (or the oils of you choice) on the felt.
Next, decide where you want to stick your Mini Diffuser. Peel the sticker backing off and simply stick to where you’d like a fresh, lovely scent!
Note of Caution: I would NOT suggest sticking it to a painted wall or surface as it may remove the paint when you peel it off.
The purpose of an essential oil diffuser can be multifaceted. You can choose essential oils to support uplifting moods or even to repel bugs.
Say you are thinking, too bad I don’t have any furniture pads on hand. Well, do you have bamboo skewers? If you do, you can make a quick homemade reed diffuser. It is not as portable as the felt pad mini diffuser. It won’t be a great essential oil car diffuser but it still works great to release the aroma of essential oils in the house. You just take a small glass bottle and place the bamboo skewer sticks upright through the narrow opening. Then you can pour a tablespoon of base oil (such as fractionated coconut oil or safflower oil) in there with 6 drops of the essential oils. This is a good option for more of a slow release of fresh scent.
Here are a few possible benefits of essential oils to consider:
Lavender oil- supports relaxation
Eucalyptus- kills bugs and mites
Peppermint- helps relieve anxiety
Tea tree- helps inhibit the growth of fungus (great for sock drawers)
Ideas of were to place your mini DIY oil diffuser:
- non visible portion of your car
- inside top of the trashcan lid
- in laundry baskets
- on the side or back of toilet
- in a gym bag
- in closets
The options are endless! The best part is that it couldn’t be easier or faster. That is why this DIY diffuser is one of my favorite ways to add a lovely fragrance instantly to any small spaces. Have you ever made a DIY essential oil diffuser before? Do you think you would like to try one like this?
