Use This Essential Oil Hack To Turn Your Succulent Into A Diffuser
Besides being one of the easiest indoor plants to care for, succulents can be transformed into essential oil diffusers. To do so, just spread lava rocks around them.
By distributing the essential oils onto the lava rocks, the scent will be able to permeate their porous surfaces. This way, the oil’s fragrance can be enjoyed for several days.
To create your succulent diffuser, fill a planter with potting soil until it’s about halfway full. Then, place the succulents in the pot about ½ inch apart.
Fill the rest of the pot with soil and water until it’s about 1 inch from the top. Spread the lava rocks across the soil before adding 6-8 drops of essential oil to them.
Beyond having health benefits for humans, aromatherapy can benefit your succulents as well. The scent will repel harmful pests and help create a healthier atmosphere.
