Happy Birthday to Me

Yesterday was my birthday, and I was glad when nearly every gift I received was all natural.  One of my main presents was a soapstone diffuser.  I was excited to try it out right away, and thus that is what I'm going to talk about today.

Fill water bowl partway.

Add 3-4 drops of essential oil or diffuser blend.  I used another one of my gifts, the Spa Spirit diffuser blend.

Light a candle within.

Breathe in the fresh, therapeutic air.

I really enjoy this diffuser.  I was surprised by how quickly the scent made it through the whole house, and it lasts quite a while after the candle has been blown out.  The diffuser blends that I received are specially concocted for relaxation and immune system support, so I love that.  Then there's the added bonus of the fresh scent in the house.  Just remember to blow out those candles before you leave the house!


  1. next time you might want to try using tealights instead of votives. when the wax melts it leaves a mess to clean out, and the tealights dont. to reuse the tealight tins, you just need to melt wax and create a wick, viola you have just recycled a disposable item!

    cheers, Deanna

  2. I really like this soapstone diffuser. I really hope it can help with your allergies and make our house always smell fresh!
