How-to: 

  • In a clean plastic bowl, mix the oils together. When blending the scents, follow a ratio of 30% essential oil to 70% carrier oil. If the scent isn't strong enough for you, feel free to add 5 extra drops of essential oil. 
  • Using a funnel, transfer the mixture into the vase. Make sure your vase is glazed so it doesn't leak over time. 
  • Add in the reeds (or skewers). Place one end on the solution to saturate it. After a while, take them out and dip the opposite ends into the bottle. Rotate which ends are in the scent solution about once a week.
