Around Christmas time last year, I started diffusing essential oils.

Basically, I wanted my house to smell like Christmas 24/7, and I saw one of my favorite Instagram feeds posting all kinds of amazing diffuser blends.

I had already heard about all of the amazing benefits of oils, and thought I’d just jump on the band wagon.

This post is selfishly for me, because my kids and I LOVE a good craft project, and I’ve been wondering what fun and frugal DIY’s we could make to save money on household products.

When I went searching for essential oil DIY recipes, oh man did these ladies deliver!  Who knew you could have so much fun with essential oils?!

If you’re like me, maybe you haven’t started using essential oils because you are intimidated and don’t know where to start.

Well, here’s your list of a bajillion (it’s a word), things you can do with them… so get going mama!

First, get the basics:

You will want some oils!  There are several brands out there.  I personally use Young Living Essential Oils which you can check out here.

Some of these projects require simple household or pantry items like fractionated coconut oil.

You may also want to snag some adorable amber glass spray or roller bottles to store your super cool DIY projects in.

Which one will you make?  I can’t wait to see!

hi! I'm shannon

I’m a wife, mom of three, doctor, and blogger! In 2018, I decided to turn my mom blog, into a personal finance blog so others could follow along on our journey to pay off over HALF a MILLION dollars in student loan and practice start up debt. I hope you enjoy following along, and maybe even find some inspiration along the way.
