With paper towel rolls
If you have paper towels in your kitchen, you can put about 4 drops of your favorite oil in the middle tube. This way every time you grab a paper towel, the roll will move and disperse the oil into the air. It is recommended to use citrus aromas in the kitchen, but you can use whichever one you think is best.
Put a few drops of essential oil on the cardboard tube inside a roll of toilet paper. Every time someone unrolls some toilet paper air will flow across the essential oil and diffuse it into the air. Use single oils like lavender, lemongrass, or orange. Or combine a couple different essential oils for great new blended scents. Here are a few to try for a fresh and clean scent your bathroom:
With Oven Filters
One of the best ways to diffuse essential oils without a diffuser is to use the oven. It consists of placing a few drops of essential oils on the filter and letting your house be impregnated with the best smells. The less positive part is its short duration. It is special for when you have visitors at home and want to make a good impression.
Put a few drops of essential oil on your filter. When the furnace blows air over the filter the essential oils will be diffused throughout your home. The scent will fade after a couple of days. You’ll need to add additional drops of essential oil to the furnace filter every couple of days.
With a DIY cotton ball diffuser
Use the bottles of essential oil as much as possible, and place a cotton ball inside them when they have nothing or very little oil left. Let the cotton ball rest in the bottle for 2 days. Then remove the cotton ball and place it in the places where you want to diffuse the smell of the oils. This way you can use essential oils without a diffuser is good for small places.
Just need a quick burst of essential oils? Try using a cotton ball. Put a few drops of essential oil on a cotton ball and then place the cotton ball in your car vent, in your floor vent, or even on the blade of a fan (please be safe– unplug fan and then tape the cotton ball to the fan and completely remove hands from the fan before plugging it back in and turning it on).
Directly from the EO Bottle
It is the easiest way to diffuse essential oil without the need to connect your diffuser. You only have to open the bottle and breathe directly the oil and its properties. Breathe deeply by pressing the bottle against your nose. Repeat the process a couple of times. This is usually done in times of high stress.
This basic approach to getting the aromatic benefits of essential oils works great in a pinch. Simply uncap the essential oil bottle, hold it a few inches from your nose and move your hand back and forth over the top of the essential oil bottle, moving the essential oil vapors towards your nose.
With your own hands
Another way to spread essential oils is to use your hands. It’s very easy and you’ve probably already done it more than once. Just pour a drop of essential oil into the palm of your hand and rub it in for a few seconds. Then cover your nose with both hands, so you can inhale the oil and get its benefits.
Put a drop of essential oil in your hand, rub your hands together, then cup your hand over your nose and inhale deeply
Make a spray for your room
Using an empty bottle to create your favorite oil blend is a great option if you don’t want to use the diffuser. Add about 15 drops of your favorite blends to a container and add water, making sure to leave room for the spray. You’ll be free to go around the house spraying the essential oils. It’s wonderful, isn’t it?
I love making room sprays! It’s an all-natural (chemical and toxin-free) way to freshen my home, bring in the scents of the season, and get the amazing therapeutic benefits of essential oils. They’re so easy to make and they save money over those commercial sprays.
These room sprays are, of course, great to use in your own home, but they also make FABULOUS GIFTS for teachers, friends, hairdressers, moms, neighbors, sisters, … makes a unique hostess gift, thank you gift, gift exchange item, teacher gift, …. They’re cute, functional, non-toxic, and smell AMAZING!!
Use scented fruits
You can get odorless pineapples at the store. Buy a few, and place them in strategic places in your home, then put a drop of your essential oil in each pineapple and you will have a fruit essential oil diffuser. It is necessary to change the pineapples every 3 days, to maintain the effect of the essential oil.
You can access the scent inhalers, these are increasingly sought after and accepted in the market. They come with a wick in the middle, where you will place the drops of essential oils. It can be a favorite fragrance or a mixture of several. You should not place them too close to the nose so that you can enjoy the benefits properly. One of the best ways to use essential oils without a diffuser.
These inhalers are extremely easy use to make and use. I love how convenient they are to carry in my purse so that I always have them when I need it.
Essential oil necklaces
Another big market for essential oils is necklaces. The best in our opinion are those with lava beads. With these necklaces you can take the benefit of the oils wherever you go, just add your favorite blend and you’re done. Now you have another way to enjoy essential oils without a diffuser.
