Scent-sational Ideas for Aromatherapy Wedding Favors

Planning a wedding can be a high-pressure task, even for brides with a clear vision of what they want and the budget to accomplish it. One aspect of a wedding that doesn’t have to cause stress is choosing wedding favors. Go with something simple, elegant and timeless that will fit the lifestyle of virtually every guest – aromatherapy.

Scent is a mood-setting gift that can help establish the tone for your reception and remind guests afterward how much they enjoyed sharing your big day with you. You don’t have to give every guest a bottle of perfume or resort to costly scented candles to achieve the perfect aromatherapy wedding favor. Making your own favors not only saves you money, it puts your personal stamp on the mementoes your guests will keep long after the wedding day has passed.

potpourri sachetPotpourri is a wonderful way to bring comforting, peaceful aromas into your party space. Place a bowl of your favorite potpourri on the dining tables at your reception. Make the scent the centerpiece of your aromatherapy favors by placing small amounts of the potpourri in handmade sachets that guests can carry home.

For a holiday wedding create a “wise men’s favor.” Paint an empty tea tin with your wedding colors, or cover it with festive gold paper. Fill the tin with coarse salt and sprinkle with lemon, frankincense and myrrh essential oils. Replace the lid. Include instructions to release this ancient sacred scent by removing the lid and placing the tin in a warm location.

A soul-warming spa kit is good year-round. Create a home spa kit with a mineral bath and a body and massage oil to revitalize the body and chase away the blues. Wrap these items in a small basket, adding a loofah or other bath items. Or present them in a personalized mini-tote that features the wedding couple’s name and marriage date.

ESSENTIAL OIL OF THE MONTH

WINTERGREEN

Wintergreen essential oilThe distinctive and powerfully fresh aroma of wintergreen (Gaultheria leaf) oil is due to an overwhelming presence (98%) of a single constituent called methyl salicylate. Fresh wintergreen leaves contain precursor molecules and the methyl salicylate is formed in the presence of hot water and steam during distillation. Because wintergreen is so pure and potent, it should be used carefully. It blends well with peppermint, eucalyptus and lavender in air-purifying diffusion. The sweet-woody scent of wintergreen is awakening to the senses and it inspires mental clarity and alertness.

Wintergreen Air Purifying Mist
4 ounces water
12 drops wintergreen oil
9 drops bergamot orange oil
3 drops eucalyptus oil

Place ingredients in spray mister bottle, shake and mist throughout the home.

Wintergreen Mental Clarity Diffusion
1 ounce water
3 drops wintergreen oil
3 drops tangerine oil

Place ingredients in the bowl of an Aura Cacia candle lamp diffuser. Light candle.
