I am no Martha Stewart…in fact, I rarely (if ever) do anything crafty. However, this evening I did a little, easy project that I am quite pleased with.
Scented oil diffusers are all the rage these days…and I am particularly fond of Pier 1’s scents. They are one of the few places I can find scented candles and oils that don’t give me a monstrous headache. A while back I had purchased a couple plain diffuser sets to try out. I loved them and realized I wanted more around the house.
Then some recessive crafting gene kicked into active-status and a lightbulb went off. I have several lovely (small) glass bottles that I’ve collected in years past that sit and collect dust on my shelves. And shish kebab skewers are typically made of bamboo (reeds). And Pier 1 sells their oil in bulk refill bottles. See where I’m going with this?
I now have three very attractive, unique oil diffusers. Or rather I will have once they dry – I had to wash the dust accumulation out of them first and I can’t get a towel inside to get all the water out. Evaporation will have to do its thing.
My scents are Ember and Ginger Peach, but the Citrus Cilantro is also a favorite of mine (I have many CC candles in the house), especially in the spring. The Island Orchard candles are also nice, especially in spring or summer, but I find the oil cloyingly sweet and don’t like it.
What are your favorite scents? Do they change with the seasons?
