Keep reading below to learn how to make your own DIY essential oil diffuser ornaments at home!
DIY Christmas Ornaments:
To start, you only need two ingredients: air dry clay and any essential oil of your choice. Personally, I love to use my doTERRA Holiday Joy blend essential oil because it has such a warm and homey smell that's perfect for Christmas time! Another lovely combination is Cassia and Siberian Fir. If you need quality essential oils you can head over to my shop
Start by taking out your clay (this is the air dry clay
I used) and roll a small ball of the clay between your hands. If you want to add glitter you can roll a small amount of glitter on the clay now. This extra fine glitter
looks gorgeous and goes a long way.
Next, use a printed stamp to press down on the clay to give it its round shape and the design of your choice. As you can see in the picture, I used a snowflake design
, which I think is perfect for Christmas!
Next, make a hole in the top with a straw or toothpick so that you can pull string through it to hang it as an ornament or tie it as a gift tag. Then set the clay ornament aside to dry for 1-2 days so that it hardens. After the drying period, you can loop the string or ribbon that you've chosen through the hole and then take your favorite essential oil and add a few drops to the back of the ornament.

These ornaments are only limited by your imagination! I made a second version using star cookie cutters and let my toddler paint and glitter bomb them after the clay had dried. She had a blast and was very excited to gift them to her friends and family. If you choose to use paint, leave the back side unpainted so you can add essential oils to it.
