We now spend 90% of our day inside our home now and keeping the smell amazing might be challenging for air polishing can still be present, natural scents are a wonderful way to make our home smell warm, inviting, and cozy.

Purchasing a humidifier is an option for some of us, yet getting this device for $35 or more for a very small unit and can cost as much as much as $300 if you’re planning to put one in each room of your house. Although, diffusers are a stylish way to add a luxurious scent to your home. Here are some ideas below.

Start by adding 1/4 cup of baby oil, or any other unscented or lightly scented oil, next measure 3 tablespoons of rubbing alcohol that is at least 90% isopropyl or use vodka as an alternative and pour it into the bowl. This will help the scent flow up the diffuser rods better.

After, carefully add 20 to 25 drops of your favorite essential oil to the bowl. Find a small vase or glass bottle to be use for you room, go with a bottle that is slightly wider at the base and has a small opening at the top, this will prevent less evaporation of the liquid. Once bottle is ready, place the funnel into it and pour the essential oil mixture into the vase, fill the bottle up to ¾.

Now, place three to six wooden skewers or reeds into the vase, you may wish to cut the reeds with scissors or a utility knife so that they only stick out of the vase a four to six inches.


  • If you are using wooden skewers cut off the spiked end for safety especially around young children.
  • Rotate the diffuser rods so that the dry end goes into the liquid.
