Science Lab Essential Oil Burner

One thing I love to do no matter what time of the year it is, is to scent my home with essential oils. I have several types of oil warmers and diffusers all around my house. I recently saw a neat lab flask oil warmer over at Free People . I decided to figure out how to make my own version, but at a fraction of the price. The Free People version will set you back over $160 but mine only cost $40 including shipping. I purchased the lab supplies from American Science Surplus. You can also find the lab stand, clamp and flask on Ebay or similar sites. Go get your lab coat and safety googles, I’m going to show you how to make a scientifically-awesome essential oil warmer!

This project couldn’t be simpler. Screw the pieces of the base and the stand together and attach the clamp. Then, place the flask in the clamp and screw it securely.

Fill the flask halfway with water and drop about 10 drops of your favorite essential oil into the water

Place a small mirror and candle onto the base of the lab support stand

Light the candle and the heat from the flame will warm the oils and make the room smell like your favorite oil.
Never leave an open flame unattended.
