To realize it, get a glass jar and its metal screw-on lid. The jar must be large enough to put it rosemary and a floating candle.
Both lemon-flavoured eucalyptus and lemongrass essential oils can be used. These essential oils must be used separately. Thus, you can choose one of them or create the mixture for two jars. This last solution will allow you to cover a wider area.
For one glass jar, you’ll need:
- A lemon
- A lime
- Floating candles
- 10 drops of lemon-flavoured eucalyptus essential oil or 10 drops of lemongrass essential oil
Cut the lemon and the lime into slices and put it in a glass jar. Fill the jar with water.
Add thyme in the water and 10 drops of the essential oil of your choice.
Once it is done, you can light a floating candle and put it on the water. This last step will activate the scented oils.
Repeat the procedure in a second transparent glass jar, if needed. When candles are burning, stay alert and keep bottles and jars out of reach of children and domestic animals. Do not forget that essential oils are flammables and must be handled with care.
