Essential oils are perfect for crafting. Here are 10 different essential oil projects to you can create alone or with a group of friends.
It seems like everywhere I go I see and hear people talking about Essential Oil projects. On Facebook, on the sidebar of many blogs and recently at my hair salon.
I have been using essential oils since the late 1990s when I owned the herbal gift shop with my sister. So many of the products we sold were made with essential oils and I have always enjoyed them for their unbeatable beautiful and natural fragrance.
So today I am sharing a roundup of 10 posts I've written using essential oils.

Ten Essential Oil Projects
Mixing different combinations of essential oils and a base oil can be an art in itself. This is a super fun project to make with a group. You can share the essential oils which will cut back on the costs and everyone will have a blast testing and try different blends.
A great craft to make with a few friends to share the costs of the ingredients. Keep it on a shelf for decoration and remove the lid for fragrance.
For those of you who prefer liquid soap, this is an all natural and moisturizing recipe scented with your favorite oils.
Scrubs are so easy to make and this one is gentle enough for the whole body. I like to use it in the summer to slough off dead skin before applying sunless tanner on my legs.
Now that I've made this I don't think I'll ever buy it in the store again. Lip balm is so easy to make. This one uses a little be of mica powder to give your lips a hint of color but the same recipe works great without it.
Did you know that there are well documented studies that show a calming effect when using lavender? This may help those with a busy mind get some rest. So spray some of this homemade linen/room spray in your bedroom or on your pillow.
This pretty mason jar is a beautiful accent piece for your bathroom but more importantly, it contains herbs and bath salts scented with essential oils for an amazing spa experience. Perfect for gift giving.
Making my own cleaning products with essential oils is one of my favorites of this entire list. The smell of natural oils makes the process so much nicer for me. I'm in love with the granite cleaner. I'll never buy this at the store again.
This rich balm is great for any rough spots. Hard working hands, rough elbows, and cracked feet.
And lastly, I made this for the winter but it would also be very good as an after tanning moisturizer. It's very lightweight and sinks into your skin quickly.
All of the recipes are easy to make and you can really go crazy with creating different variations of scents and different carrier oils. Enjoy.
