Essential oils have been a part of our daily lives for years now! I could not be without. Well, this year for the holiday season, we decided to get creative in our essential oil usage. Who wouldn’t want a tree that is both beautiful and that also supports our wellness. Yes please! 

My kids love to make clay projects and we have already made so many diffuser necklacesthat I figured the natural progression would be to hang those necklaces on the Christmas tree and make them into even cuter ornaments. The kids approved! Thus, DIY Essential Oil Diffuser Ornaments were born.

They make great gift ideas too. We are going to give them to family, friends and teachers this holiday season. Along with a bottle of essential oil of course.

What you need:

  • Terra Cotta Air Dry Clay — where to find
  • Silpat — where to find (makes any surface non-stick!)
  • Rolling pin (I find this kind to be the easiest to use)
  • Cookie cutters in your favorite holiday cut-out shapes
  • Stampers — like these (optional, to make the ornaments even prettier)
  • 1 Skewer Stick
  • String to hang them with
  • One pen or marker with a cap on it
  • Glitter, ribbons, pipe cleaners, or paint to decorate them if you wish
  • Essential Oils — I only recommend using these oils (they are true therapeutic grade)

Directions: 

  • On your Silpat, roll out a ball of clay using your rolling pin

  • Roll the clay until it is 1/3″ thick, if they are too thin they become brittle when they dry. You can make them thicker if you want them more durable
  • Using your cookie cutters, cut into fun festive shapes

  • Using the stamps or a pen cap, make indentations in the ornaments. This is where you will apply the essential oils when the ornaments are dry
  • Using your skewer stick, poke a small hole in the top for your string

  • Allow to dry, undisturbed, for 2-3 days. If you try to use them earlier, they will break — believe me we learned this lesson over and over (my kids were way too excited to wait 2 days!)

  • Once completely dried, put your string of choice on them. I even use tinsel to make them really sparkly!
