One of my favourite things in my house is an oil burner. There are so many oils to choose from, which can be mixed and matched to suit your mood or need. They don't just make the house smell lovely, they are great to use for calming, motivating, refreshing, relaxing or soothing.
Hmm motivating, I really should burn the Motivating blend a
Some oils can be expensive initially but as only a couple of drops are needed, they last a long time, much better value for money than flowers (for scent, unless they come from your garden) or scented candles.
My favourite floral scented oil is Rose Geranium, followed closely by Jasmine, or sometimes I like to mix citrus oils, like lemongrass and grapefruit. In my burner today is Tranquil and Calm which is a blend of Lavender, Rose Geranium, Bergamot and Rosewood. Christmas is coming soon (sorry for the reminder) and there are some lovely Christmasy oils scented with cinnamon and cloves.
A bonus to burning oils are the absolutely beautiful burners that are available, the one above at the top of the post and this one are my favourites.
Ahh there are actually two bonuses to using my oil burner, the other one is, it helps me use more of the 800 (I'm not joking) Ikea tea lights that I have in my cupboard. Don't ask, and no I didn't steal them.
So take a look at Mrs P at Quilting In My Pyjamas to see what everyone is posting about this week.
