A DIY Christmas gift…Simple, Easy and Versatile

The other day, my sister-in-law and I were chatting about various ways we can use our Essential and Synergy oils. She mentioned that she had seen somewhere that bamboo sticks worked very well with an essential oil to make a simple diffuser. I argued a little with her saying that the oils would evaporate too quickly. Well, she then told me how she had allowed the bamboo sticks to absorb the oil and had then taken them out the oil and put the sticks in another bottle and allowed them to diffuse into the atmosphere.

Well, I thought, no harm in trying this out, but let me try it in various parts of the house and let me leave it in the oil and see how fast it evaporates. It lasts 2 weeks! Not bad at all! So, if you are looking for a quick stocking filler or a small gift for the person who has everything, try this out: –

Using between 4 and 7 skewers, I just inserted them into the oil and placed them where I needed them.
