  1. Would different types of wood do better? I know I wouldn’t want anything pressure treated but oak vs pine vs cedar – what do you think?

    1. As long as the wood is untreated, it’s really up to you! You can choose something based on aesthetics or its natural aroma (Cedar, for instance).

  2. These are adorable! Such a fun and creative way to decorate for the holidays while spreading lovely, and beneficial, scents!

  3. Handprints of the grandkids on one king piece of wood made perfect for a welcoming sign at grandma’s entry way! She loved them and the smell of Harvest Moon!

  4. Perfect holiday (or any day) craft idea! I’m always looking for things to do with my nieces and nephews, or if I’m alone and bored lol
    I Still have a gingerbread blend from last year and think this will be perfect for the upcoming fall season.
    Maybe some lavender for bathroom blocks as a natural deodorizer, lemon/basil or pink grapefruit in the kitchen… Oh gosh I want to put them all over the house!
    Thanks for the idea 🙂

    1. That sounds like a great idea Barb! That will vary on the oils used and type of wood. I have added a few drops of oil to a to a wooden box in my room and it lasted for a few days. You can just add more drops as needed 🙂

  5. Ooo this is a brilliant idea! I can do this with my kiddos on their untreated wooden blocks! And this gives me an idea to use it on the inside of my untreated wooden cabinets to make get rid of musty smell!

    1. Sally, every oil evaporates differently and this could also vary depending on the type of wood used. I would recommend re-applying the oils as needed.

    1. I was thinking the same thing! These would be great for work as well. I can’t diffuse at my desk, but I could absolutely put a couple drops on one of these and have it with me all day.

  6. This will be a fun project for me and the imps to create 🙂 Does it matter what type of wood is used, or, is one wood better for EOs than others…? Thanks for this fun autumnal project!

    1. Yes, a fun weekend project for the whole family 🙂 I’m sure different types of wood may absorb quicker than others. Might be something fun to experiment with. They should all absorb after a few minutes though, to lock in the scent

  7. What a cute idea! I never thought of the idea of using wooden blocks and I’m sure my kids would love to paint some too. Hopefully I can do a few of these this weekend!
