  • Fill the bowl with two-thirds full of baby oil.
  • Add 20 drops of your chosen essential oil. You can also experiment by combining two scents together! Try mixing Vanilla and Chamomile for a sweet and relaxing scent.
  • Pour the mixture into the glass container and add the reeds.

RL Tip: Make sure you rotate the ends of the reeds once it dries up so the scent can spread out to the space.
