Succulents & Essential Oils

Succulents are super popular with many of my oily friends right now. I decided to jump on the succulent bandwagon to see what it was all about and let me just say, how FUN!!!

Gather your friends, gather your kiddoes, give these as end of the year teacher gifts, or Mother’s Day gifts, grandma gifts, friendship gifts, office gifts, I mean the possibilities are endless, and what a super fun activity!

Let me share about succulents for a moment to better explain how they, and essential oils, pair well together. Succulents hold water, lots of water! And when adding essential oils to the potting mix or lava rocks, the oils are absorbed through the root and diffused through the succulent. How cool is THAT! This means you have a super cute, natural diffuser!

What you will need:

  • Succulent plants
  • Succulent planters
  • Succulent potting mix and moss
  • Essential oils of choice
  • Lava rocks (optional)

Here’s how it works:

You pick the cutest ceramic pot you can find. One with a few holes on the bottom is better. I found these on Amazon.

Visit your nearest greenhouse for your favorite succulent or you can order online but local is best. Grab a little extra potting soil for the planting process.

Decorate around your succulent with moss, rocks, bark or pebbles. Lava rocks can be found at some local home stores like Hobby Lobby, Lowe’s or Home Depot, any craft store really. If they’re not easy to find locally, Amazon has a nice selection. Lava rocks are porous and will hold essential oils, so I recommend a few if you can find them.

Drop some Young Living Essential Oils onto the lava rocks (or moss if no lava rocks are available). Now you have the perfect gift, personal diffuser for your desk, or bathroom air freshener!

This is a unique and creative way to share Young Living Essential oil with your friends and family. Now it’s your turn to play! Give it a try and see what you think!

Enjoy nature’s natural diffuser when you pair a succulent with an essential oil!
