Well, I think! I have to get Mike’s input on the smells. I lost most of my smelling abilities years ago. Sometimes, that a good thing. Lol! But I do have concerns if family and friends stop by and I can’t smell that there’s onion in the air. Eek!

From choosing the right containers and reeds, to maximizing scent distribution, you’ll learn everything you need to know to turn your living space into a fragrant oasis. Let’s dive in and discover the secrets to a beautifully scented home.

Choosing the Right Dollar Tree Containers

When it comes to choosing the right Dollar Tree containers for your fragrance oils, consider both functionality and aesthetics. Pick containers that are not only sturdy and leak-proof but also complement the decor of your home. Clear glass jars can add a touch of elegance to your space. Plus you can easily see the level of fragrance oil remaining.

By adding additional elements to your Dollar Tree containers, you can enhance the overall ambiance of your home with a cohesive look that reflects your taste.

Dollar Store Candle Jar to hold Reeds

This little candle jar is my favorite fragrance oil container. I bought 3 then went back and bought 5 more.

The candle jar has a wood top. The wood is a soft basswood. That means it’s easy to drill through! I made a rough circle on paper. Then placed 7 holes as a template. I did have 8 lids to drill! That makes 56 holes! But, it was very easy. Make sure to use a drill bit a smidgen larger than your reeds.

Under the wood top is a soft spongy circle. I removed it from the first top, but quickly realized I should not have removed it. It holds the wood top in place on the candle jar! 🤷‍♀️

So don’t do that! Instead, just drill through the spongy thing!

Next, you need to remove the candle from the jar. This was easier than I expected! I used plyers and pulled on the wick and the candle slid right out!

Dollar Tree container for natural room fragrance

This is my finish fragrance oil container using a candle jar from the Dollar Tree. I added 7 reeds to each jar and my favorite fragrance oil. I left the label on my jars, but you could add your own labels or remove them and leave it simple.

Do notice the wood gets darker as the oil moves up the reeds.

Ideas to Add Your Personal Touch

Consider adding a unique twist to your Dollar Tree containers by personalizing them with labels, decorative ribbons, or paint. You could even repurpose mason jars or tin cans for a more rustic look. Get creative with how you arrange your containers, whether it’s clustering them on a tray or shelf, or hanging them from hooks for a playful display. Engaging your senses doesn’t stop at the scent – add visual appeal by incorporating natural elements like dried flowers, seashells, or crystals around your containers. By infusing your personal style into your home fragrance display, you can create an inviting atmosphere that truly feels like your own sanctuary.

Selecting the Perfect Natural Room Fragrance

Why use natural room fragrance?

When selecting natural fragrance oils for your home, it’s important to consider the scent profile and strength of the oils. Think about the mood you want to create in each room – whether it’s a relaxing lavender for the bedroom or a refreshing citrus for the kitchen. I looked for high-quality oils that are long-lasting and have a good throw. That means they will distribute the scent effectively throughout the space. The dollar tree and many discount stores have room fragrance oils, but they are not as lovely to smell. IMO!

Is there a real difference in the smell?

I have to be completely honest, I can’t smell as well as I did in my younger years. You know the 40’s or 50’s! But when I do get a smell I want it to be lovely, soft and fresh. Even with my limited smelling abilities, I can tell the difference. You can experiment with different blends and notes to find the perfect fragrance that suits your preferences. By carefully choosing natural room fragrance oils, you can enhance the ambiance of your home and create a welcoming environment that envelops you in delightful scents.

Ideas to Place your Fragrance Oils

Tips for maximizing scent distribution include strategic placement of containers. Place in obvious locations, bathrooms and kitchen! But also think about air circulation. Place near windows and doors, or near air vents to help move the fragrance. Also adjust the number of reeds to achieve your desired level of fragrance throughout your home. In smaller rooms like the mudroom, closets or hallways, I place 3 or 4 reeds.

Reeds or Cotton?

Personally, I don’t like the cotton sticks. They turn the color of the oil and look grungy to me. I do like the reeds. I get the natural rattan reeds. They have about 20 holes inside the reed that move the fragrance up into the air.

When to replace reeds

So far, I’ve replaced the reeds when I change fragrance to a different scent. But there have been a couple of times when I’ve reused them if the new fragrance goes with the new scent. 😉

I hope I’ve help you pick a great and inexpensive way to make your home smell amazing. Put the money into quality natural room fragrance oil and not the containers. Reeds are cheaper to buy in bulk.
