Scented pencils

Just in time for back to school, did you know you can make scented pencils and erasers using essential oils? It works great! How fun to send off the kids with pencils smelling like their favorite calming, uplifting, grounding, or focus boosting blend.

These and super easy. First, use non-toxic, natural wood, or recycled paper pencils, and non-toxic erasers.

Next add 20-30 drops of essential oil to a cotton pad and put it and your pencils and erasers in a plastic zipper bag.  Wait for a couple days and open the bag and your pencils and erasers will smell like whatever oil you placed on the cotton pad. The longer you keep it in the bag, the stronger the scent. You can add more drops after a day or so for maximum effect.
