  • 4 drops lavender oil

  • 1 drop vetiver oil


  • 3 drops lavender oil
  • 3 drops bergamot oil

Lavender Door Wreath

Invite a calming aroma and beautiful décor into your home with a DIY lavender door wreath. Just follow these steps:

  • Take a bunch (about 20-40 stems) of dried lavender stems, bundle them together, and straighten up the top
  • Cut most of the lavender stems to make them even
  • Place the bunch of lavender onto a wire wreath form at your desired angle, and secure them by wrapping a piece of floral wire around the wreath a few times
  • Take another bunch of lavender and secure it next to the first bunch, keeping the same angle. Continue until you have covered the entire wreath form
  • Wrap a ribbon around the wreath and make a loop for hanging.

Dried Eucalyptus Centerpiece

You can also use bunches of dried eucalyptus to make a unique, sweet-smelling centerpiece for your table. Here’s how:

  • Using a craft knife, cut pieces of dry floral foam to fit inside a centerpiece holder (bowl, dish, or basket). Build up the foam so that it comes over the edge of the container by 1½ to 2 inches. Glue or tape the foam to the bottom of the centerpiece holder.
  • Push the stems of dried eucalyptus into the center of the foam. Work in a circular motion around this point, angling each row slightly more outward than the last. For the final row, push the stems upward into the side of the foam rather than the top, forcing the head of the dried lavender to point toward the table.
  • Fill in any gaps with dried lavender, working the colorful stems in between the eucalyptus for a colorful and calming accent.

Backyard Aromatherapy

Why not reap the benefits of aromatherapy in your own backyard? Plant fragrant lavender, jasmine, and rosemary, and enjoy sweet scents that promote rest and relaxation. Lavender can lower the heart rate, jasmine can boost sleep quality, and rosemary can reduce stress. With a variety of soothing herbs, your backyard can become a tranquil oasis.

  • 10 drops chamomile oil
  • 10 drops clary sage oil
  • 5 drops lavender oil
  • 5 drops cedarwood oil
