Discover how to make my DIY plaster aroma stones for essential oils now.

Last week I got into a groove and started getting crafty. I was going to rock being stuck at home. Unfortunately, it turns out that adult fears outweigh that childhood boredom that kept me entertained as a Gen X latchkey kid. Because my increasing anxiety kicked everything up a notch, including the fibro. And there’s no amount of knocking boots or edibles that can get me back into my magic zen zone.

Everyday is just one day at a time right now. Slowing down and a lot of self care. Hoping things don’t get worse. Worrying that no one I know gets sick. Crossing fingers, legs and toes that my friends who’ve lost their jobs are going to pull through this with some hope (and sanity) left intact. It’s crazy out there. And I’m worried. But I think it’s important to remember that we are not alone. If we stick together as a community and look out for each other, we’ll all be okay. In the meantime, get back to basics by crafting! It’s basically art therapy for stress. (Plus it’ll likely help you cope better than day drinking. Those cortisol spikes cause some pretty wicked insomnia.)

Unplugged Kids Crafts & Activities

I know some of you still have kids at home bored out of their minds. So it can be hard to drag them away from video games and the internet. Since I’m apparently old enough to now be confused with a boomer (Um, hello. My PARENTS are boomers. They are in their 70s.) I have all kinds of ideas for unplugged kids crafts and activities that I did as a child. Because Atari was about as good as it got back then. And I was never great about the whole hand eye coordination thing. 

  • Mix dirt with grass and water to make pinch pot pottery.
  • Learn about edible weeds and herbs by foraging for salads.
  • Create an at home restaurant with food, menus and money hand drawn onto paper, then cut out with scissors.
  • Bake cookies and brownies and grilled cheese.
  • Make paper dolls.
  • Attach multiple sheets of paper together with tape, then draw roads on them for toy cars.
  • Dig up the yard to make roads for toy cars.
  • Use kids sidewalk chalk to draw roads on the cul-de-sac for biking.

What Are Aroma Stones?

You may be wondering, what is an aroma stone? An aroma stone is basically just unglazed pottery. It’s used as a fragrance diffuser for fragrance oils or essential oils by simply adding drops of your scent of choice to the stone. You can make aroma stones using air dry clay. You can also make DIY plaster aroma stones using plaster. By adding colored mica powder, you can easily add fun colors to your aroma stones. And utilize them as kids sidewalk chalk as well. Here’s how it’s done.

Directions for Making DIY Plaster Aroma Stones:

I made my DIY plaster aroma stones the same way I did my essential oil ornaments. There’s not a huge difference in the process. I used four parts plaster to three parts water with a full size sample package of mica powder for color to create these.

This recipe always works for making kids sidewalk chalk, however, the colors are pretty pastel. For bolder colors, if you’d like your DIY plaster aroma stones to double as kids sidewalk chalk, simply double or triple the amount of mica powder used.

You can also easily increase or decrease the size of my recipe for DIY plaster aroma stones simply by resizing it as needed. Just adhere to the four parts plaster to three parts water ratio. The addition of mica won’t make any difference in the outcome of your DIY plaster aroma stones as far as them holding together.

Now pour the colored plaster into your silicone mold. I used these silicone flower molds. The smaller of these two molds will make three DIY plaster aroma stones or kids sidewalk chalk in a single color.

Now use your finger, a spatula or another utensil to pop any air bubbles that may be present. You can also try tapping the mold lightly on your surface area to remove air bubbles. However, I found this challenging as the mold isn’t sturdy.

Allow the DIY plaster aroma stones to set up completely. It will take them about 20 minutes or so to fully harden. Once hardened, you can unmold them.

To make additional DIY plaster aroma stones or kids sidewalk chalk in more colors, simply repeat the process using a different color than the first.

How to Use Your DIY Plaster Aroma Stones:

To use your DIY plaster aroma stones, add about 20 drops of your favorite essential oil blend to the tops of the stone. One of my favorite blends right now is Simply Earth’s Tranquility essential oil blend. I find this blend especially helpful during times of stress. (Especially when I can’t find TP anywhere! Am I right?)

You can also create an aromatherapy essential oil blend to reduce stress and promote relaxation for your DIY plaster aroma stones. Simply combine 10 drops manuka essential oil, 10 drops bergamot essential oil and 2 drops lavender essential oil in an amber glass bottle. Then swirl to combine. Then add the blend to your plaster aroma stone to help ease away stressors and promote calm.

How to Use Your Aroma Stones as Kids Sidewalk Chalk:

Using your DIY Plaster Aroma Stones as kids sidewalk chalk is a snap. Simply add additional mica, if desired, when making your stones for that extra color pop. Then give your kids some chalk to play with and enjoy! It works great on streets, sidewalks and paving stones. And, of course, parents and adults can join in the fun too! (You’re never too old to be creative.)

Say goodbye to tight, dry, itchy or even flaky skin today by adding this easy, homemade beauty recipe to your natural skin care routine!

I was recently discussing skin care with a fellow friend in Ohio. Her skin barrier really struggles through the winter months despite taking measures to hydrate dry skin, such as using gentle soap formulated for dry skin and running a humidifier. As a result, her eczema recently flared back up.

She’s tried SOOOO many over the counter skin care products without much luck. So I suggested she give this recipe for an emulsified whipped sugar scrub a try. As a fellow maker, not only did she love this winter skin care recipe, it actually helped her skin look and feel healthier! My eczema relief balm then assisted further by locking in moisture and soothing her itchy, eczema prone skin.

Hemp seed oil, which is naturally rich in fatty acids, is considered to be one of the most nutritional oils available. It has a number of both nutritional and cosmetic uses, and contains all the essential amino acids necessary for health and wellness. As such, hemp seed oil is one of my favorite carrier oils for dry skin care. It works wonders at soothing the symptoms of dry skin and offering eczema relief. Therefore, it is also a key ingredient in many of my other dry skin care recipes such as my dry skin body oil recipe.

Emulsified Whipped Sugar Scrub Recipe

© Rebecca D. Dillon

Ingredients:

3 oz. refined shea butter
3 oz. raw cocoa butter
1 oz. hemp seed oil
.5 oz. jojoba oil
.5 oz. vegetable based emulsifying wax
.25 oz. all natural fragrance oil or .15 oz. essential oil, of choice
13.5 oz. granulated white sugar

Whipped Sugar Scrub Recipe Notes:

As the contents product may come in contact with water during use, a broad spectrum preservative is highly recommended. If you choose not to use a preservative, you should remove the desired amount from the container for use, prior to entering the shower or bath.

Instructions:

You will need a digital scale to weigh all of the ingredients for my whipped sugar scrub recipe. If you make, or plan to make, a lot of natural skin care products, I recommend this baker’s math scale for durability.

Using a digital scale, weigh out the shea butter, cocoa butter and emulsifying wax. Combine the ingredients in a double boiler, then gently heat until melted.

Once the butters and wax have melted, remove from heat.

Then weigh out the jojoba and hemp seed oils. Stir the oils into the melted butter and wax mixture.

If using a preservative, weigh out the amount indicated by the manufacturer. Stir into the ingredients once the whipped sugar scrub base is at or below the recommended temperature.

Then follow with the fragrance oil or essential oil of your choice.

Moisturize, hydrate and exfoliate skin as part of your daily natural skin care routine for soft beautiful skin.

Next, weigh out the sugar and combine in a large glass bowl with the liquid ingredients. Mix well to combine.

Allow to cool slightly before whipping with a hand blender, stand mixer or whisk.

Now pour or spoon the whipped sugar scrub into a 20 oz. jar. I used a 20 oz. square glass jar with a clasp lid that I purchased from the Dollar Tree. (These are such a great price! I mean, it’s hard to beat a dollar, right?)

If desired, you can tie a ribbon around your container into a bow for homemade gifts. I used floral garden ombre sheer ribbon from the Dollar Tree for this step.

Yield: 1 - 20oz. jar

The best handmade soaps on Etsy to gift for the Christmas Holidays.

Make a Difference By Shopping Small

Handmade artisan Christmas soaps make the perfect stocking stuffers for the holidays. When I used to sell handcrafted artisan soaps on my farmers market in the way way back, everyone would scoop up bars and bars of soaps for their stocking stuffers. It almost made standing for hours in the bitter cold worth it. And while I did enjoy my time as a seller – and the people most especially! – I don’t think I will ever go back to the chaos and challenges that come with selling handmade products throughout the holiday season. (Or summer even. I will never forgot those 100°F temps and having to keep cool by soaking my feet in a giant bucket of ice water.)

Having been a soap seller I now find it more important than ever to support other fellow artisans, whether they make handmade soaps or something else. Shopping small really does make a meaningful difference in the lives of those who craft their own products by hand. By supporting independent artists, you are not only directing supporting them and their families, but your community as well. When you shop from a small business 67% of the money you spend stays local. And that can have a big impact for everyone you care about.

Benefits of Roses for Skin

Long before becoming commonplace in European apothecaries, roses had a long history of use in Indian, Chinese, Persian, Arabian, Egyptian, Greek and Roman medicine. Like other plants favored for herbal use, roses also possess antioxidant properties. In addition to promoting skin health and reducing inflammation, roses also have wonderful antiseptic and antibacterial properties that make them useful for a variety of skin care applications.

There are many ways to introduce roses into your beauty and skin care routine. From bath soaks and body polishes to moisturizers and toners, the possibilities of use for roses is almost endless. Following are some of my favorite rose skin care recipes. I hope that you will enjoy them as much as I do.
