Passive Diffusion Fall Craft-Acorn Potpourri


Passive Diffusion Fall Craft-Acorn Potpourri

By: Kimberly Daun, Certified Aromatherapist

I really enjoy the new Spiced Orange, however it isn’t KidSafe, so I got my kids involved in a craft, then used the essential oils on the craft once they jumped on the bus for school. Spiced Orange is a wonderful essential oil blend that will fill the air with the beloved fragrance of the holidays. This special holiday blend conjures the scent of warm spices simmering on the stovetop, the smell of your favorite seasonal tea and cider, and the feeling of family-filled nights by the fire.

Spiced Orange includes bright, citrusy Sweet Orange; spicy Clove Bud; and warming Cinnamon Cassia. These essential oils come together beautifully to create a festive feeling in your home.I saw this cute craft for painted acorns on Home Stories A To Z. I quickly put my kids to work gathering acorns. The scent lingered for about three hours for me, although it may vary for others.

My 5-year-old son was helping me gather the acorns. I kept telling him how fast and amazing he was. Shortly after coming back into the house I overheard him asking my phone “who is the fastest acorn hunter ever”, I think he half expected the reply to be his name.


What you’ll need:
  • Spiced Orange (any of the synergies from the fall set are great!)
  • Glass vase
  • Enough acorns to fill vase
  • Hot glue gun
  • Paint
What you’ll do:
  1. Gather acorns
  2. Rinse acorns
  3. Place acorns on foil lined cookie sheet
  4. Cook at 170 for 2 hours to kill any little creatures
  5. Remove from oven and let cool
  6. Put a dab of glue on the inside of any tops that may have come off and reattach (I wiggled the ones that were still attached and glued the ones that came off easily)
  7. Paint the nut portion and allow to dry (I left about 1/3 without paint because I like the natural look)
  8. Place in vase
  9. Drop 3-5 drops directly on acorn tops for a fabulous aroma!
