Essential Oil Warmer
Are you surviving the cold, January weather? I’m sitting in my living room covered in about 30 blankets with a hat and slippers on and I am still cold. Unless you are one of those lucky people living down south I suspect you are too.
One thing I love to do no matter what time of the year it is, is to scent my home with essential oils. I have several types of oil warmers and diffusers all around my house. I recently saw a neat lab flask oil warmer over at Free People (I seem to be getting a lot of inspiration over there lately). I decided once again to figure out how to make my own version, but at a fraction of the price. The Free People version will set you back over $160 but mine only cost $40 including shipping. I purchased the lab supplies from American Science Surplus. You can also find the lab stand, clamp and flask on Ebay or similar sites. Go get your lab coat and safety googles, I’m going to show you how to make a scientifically-awesome essential oil warmer!
- Single arm adjustable jaw burette clamp
- Lab support stand
- Small mirror
- Tea light candle
- Essential oils
This project couldn’t be simpler. Screw the pieces of the base and the stand together and attach the clamp. Then, place the water-filled flask in the clamp and screw it securely.
Place your mirror on the stand under the flask and add the essential oils of your choice (about 10 drops will do). Light the candle, set it on the mirror and let the sweet scents fill the air.
