In order for me to support my blogging activities, I may receive monetary compensation for links to products from this post. However, I only recommend products that I personally love and use myself!
If you’re anything like me, you’re probably starting to work on DIY Holiday projects! After all…there are only 36 days remaining until Christmas! These ornaments are easy-peasy to make and super fun to make alone or with the kids! It’s also not a super messy project which makes it a huge plus because I’m lazy and hate cleaning.
Another plus is that you can use a few drops of your favorite essential oils on them for gentle passive diffusion! They hold the scent wonderfully but can be refreshed as needed to keep them smelling lovely.
Clay Aromatherapy Ornaments
- Air Hardening Clay (I used DAS Air Hardening Modeling Clay)
- Cookie Cutters
- With a small amount of lotion on your hands, squeeze the clay to soften it (per package instructions if using suggested clay)
- Roll the clay to 1/4-1/2 Inch thick and cut into shapes.
- Use a toothpick or skewer to make a small hole near the top for stringing.
- Allow to dry completely if using air hardening clay or bake per package instructions.
- Once dried, string and enjoy by adding 1-2 drops of your favorite essential oils.
While any oil would work, I cannot recommend the holiday blends from Plant Therapy enough!
Candy Cane Holiday Blend
Christmas Tree Holiday Blend
Gingerbread Holiday Blend
Spiced Apple Cider
-This project is a personal favorite for my daughters as kneading dough or clay is wonderful to strengthen the hands. This makes a wonderful project for some special needs children.
-DAS Air Hardening clay has a unique aroma that typically dissipates after drying. The inherent smell of the clay does not interfere with the aroma of your chosen oils.
