Essential Oil DIY - Craft

  • Cinnamon Stick Diffuser Bundles

    You can never have too many diffusers dotted through the house at Christmas time. This season, we are choosing passive diffusers a little more to avoid adding more moisture to the air in our homes. The trick is to have many of them, dotted through the home to drip oils on and enjoy no matter where you are in the house. 

    This cinnamon stick diffuser bundle has such a natural and festive look. The cinnamon sticks have their own aroma so dripping pure essential oils like orange, nutmeg, peppermint, ginger, clove and black pepper can create some of those warm Christmas scents we all love. 

    You will need...

    - 10 - 12 cinnamon sticks

    - Twine or string to bundle them together.  

    - Gum, dried flowers, nuts, star anise, feathers and /or dried fruit. 


    1. Bundle the cinnamon sticks together and tie them with your twine, securing with a small knot.

    2. Choose a collection of gum, nuts, fruit etc. and hold them together in your fingers creating a small 'bouquet'. 

    3. When you are happy with the 'bouquet' place it on the twine and complete the tie creating a bow around the 'bouquet'.  

    4. Place the completed cinnamon stick bundle on a small plate to catch any of the essential oils that may drip through the bundle. 

    5. Enjoy the beauty and simplicity of your cinnamon stick diffuser bundle. 


  • Junk Free - Party Bag Vanilla and Nutmeg Lip Balms

    Finding nice, toxic and junk free things to put in kid's birthday party bags is always a challenge. I always like to put in something made with love that is useful and will often make them with my children as a thank you to their guests. 

    These vanilla and nutmeg lip balms are lightly scented and perfect for winter months. I used some dried rose, lavender and cinnamon to decorate the tops of the jars. 

    The jars used are our 5-7ml jars and are sold in packs of 6. This recipe makes 6 jars worth. 

    What you will need...

    - 1/4 cup Shea Butter

    - 1 Teaspoon of Rose-hip Oil

    - 5 Teaspoons of Jojoba Oil

    - 1 Tablespoon of Beeswax pellets

    - 5 drops or pure Vanilla

    - 4 drops or pure nutmeg essential oil  


    1. Place the Shea butter, Sweet Almond Oil, Jojoba and bees wax in a small heatproof bowl or jug and create a double boiler by placing it in a saucepan. Add a couple inches of water to the bottom of the saucepan. 

    2. Heat on low heat stirring frequently until the mixture melts together to become a liquid then remove from the heat. 

    3. Allow the liquid to cool a little and then add the essential oils and stir through. Fill your containers while the mix is still loose. 



  • Creating Intention or Ritual Candles


    Intention candles are used to manifest wishes and desires. They are a way to bring your dream life into reality. When you light your candle, it illuminates your intentions, and when you meditate or chant on it, it sends your energy out into the universe.

    Candle magic doesn’t require fancy ritual or ceremonial tools. Anyone with a candle can cast a spell. Think back to when you made a wish before you blew out the candles on your birthday cake. The same idea applies to candle magic, only instead of just hoping for your wish to come true, you're declaring your intent.

    If you think about it, the birthday candle ritual is based on three key magical principles:

    • Decide on a goal.
    • Visualise the end result.
    • Focus your intent, or will, or manifest that result.

    We like to choose and add appropriate crystals for our ritual candles to amplify our intention,  and take the time to adorn our candles with the beauty and love that they deserve, choosing symbols from the Earth, Air and Water with the wick producing the element of Fire. 

    Have a go…. what intensions do you want to manifest in your life right now?
