Now that you’ve started planning for your big day, it’s time to bust out those essential oils! You’d be surprised at the amazing ways you can add a fun, personal, and fragrant touch to your wedding preparations.
Scented Tissue Paper
The invitations are printed, envelopes stamped, the only thing left is to stuff them! But what to do with those pieces of tissue? Traditionally, the tissue is used to help keep the printing from smudging once in the envelope. And it’s the perfect opportunity to add a bit of delightful fragrance as you invite your guests to the big day. Start by choosing the blend or oils you want to use. There are classic floral choices like Rose Absolute or Lavender Fine. Or there are fun blends like Honeybell and Boquet. The possibilities are endless! Then add 1-3 drops onto a cotton ball. Place your tissue paper and cotton ball in a large plastic bag, seal it shut, and let it sit for at least 24 hours. Just make sure that the tissue paper doesn’t come into direct contact with the oils as you definitely don’t want any oily stains.
