Did you know your new plant hanger can do double duty as an air freshener? Wooden beads, like the ones on our plant holders, absorb essential oils, adding a wonderful scent to your room or office.
Using Essential Oils with Your Macrame Plant Holder
Place a few drops of your favorite essential oil on each bead and wait a minute or so for the bead to absorb the oil.
Some essential oils have more staying power than others, so reapply as needed. When one scent fades, you can change it up by using a different type of oil.
For a calming effect, my favorite oils are lavender, geranium, bergamot, jasmine, and sandalwood. If you’re going for an energizing effect, try rosemary, lemongrass, peppermint, eucalyptus, and ginger.
Make sure that any wood beads you use are unpainted and uncoated. If you are going to add beads to your macramé plant hanger, clay and lava beads are other good options as well.
