Using Essential Oils For Cozy DIY Projects
Here are seven ideas for using essential oils to create cozy DIY projects. And each DIY essential oil project you can make at home!
Cozy Is As Cozy Does.
Certainly rings true, doesn’t it? Whether a stay at a mountain cabin in the woods, a fire crackling in the hearth, a hot cup of tea in your hands, or soft slippers and a robe after a warm bath soak, cozy is unmistakable.
But you don’t need to book a vacation or brew a pot of tea on snowy a cold day to feel cozy. We can find coziness any time at home, regardless of the weather.
I’ve found that using essential oils for aromatherapy can give us a feeling of comfort and warmth on the inside.
I rounded up seven of the best tips for using essential oils to make cozy DIY projects! Each is easy to replicate a down-home, satisfyingly cozy feeling. And it all starts with comfy scents.

What Essential Oils Feel Cozy?
Derived from trees, flowers, herbs, fruits, and other plants, essential oils uses are nearly limitless. From making natural cleaners to beauty DIYs, you’ll find the more you use them; the more uses you discover!
But perhaps the most common essential oil use is diffusion (I explain the five methods for diffusing essential oils here.). And this is most likely because it’s the easiest way to enjoy their scent.
And nothing says COZY like a comforting scent.
What essential oils smell cozy?
I shared this list of ten cozy season diffuser blends that you can print a full letter-size chart from the Oily Chic Library or pin one to refer to on your phone.
So, I completely understand that many stick to diffusing, but it can be just as fun to enjoy your favorite scents in essential oil DIY projects!

7 Cozy DIY Projects Using Essential Oils

This pumpkin spice sugar scrub recipe not only delivers super soft skin by gently exfoliating, but the magic begins when uncapping the lid.

The good news is a DIY massage oil is one of the easiest essential oil recipes you can make! And you can modify our massage oil recipe with your choice of the best cozy oils.
#3 Coffee Essential Oil Candle DIY
You can’t talk about cozy scents without talking about coffee! And I can confirm coffee essential oil does, in fact, smell like coffee. Just one whiff smells like opening a new bag of coffee beans or freshly brewed coffee dripping into your thermos.
I combined the unique aroma of coffee with my techniques to make an essential oil candle the right way. Poured straight into stoneware cups made for drinking espresso, these coffee DIY candles are as adorable as they are effective.
#4 Cinnamon Spice DIY Shower Steamers
I cannot get enough of the warm, spicy scent of cinnamon and clove in these DIY shower steamers. And neither will you! They’re just the thing to warm up in the shower on the cool days of the season.
If you haven’t heard of shower steamers, they are similar to bath bombs. Steamers create a fizzy action like bath bombs but are intended to release essential oils into the steam of a shower to create an amazing, aromatherapeutic experience. How’s that for cozy?
#5 Relaxing DIY Bath Oil Recipe
A little at-home pampering might be just the coziness you need! There’s nothing like turning your bathroom into a home spa by lighting an aromatherapy candle and adding a few drops of this DIY bath oil to your bath water to nourish the skin, soothe away tension, and encourage restfulness.
It might surprise you that this cozy essential oil DIY takes just minutes to create. And it’s an entirely customizable essential oil bath recipe! Follow my tips to make your own comforting bath oil.
#6 Simple Beeswax Tea Light Candles
The season of coziness inspired me to create beeswax candles with essential oils. The sweet, subtle scent of beeswax and warm essential oils like cinnamon, clove, or vanilla are just the thing to cozy up.
And you’ll find these step-by-step instructions to make scented beeswax candles easy to follow.
#7 Vanilla Pumpkin Bath Bomb Recipe
Infused with five spicy essential oils, wrapped in vanilla, and topped with a dash of pumpkin spice, these bath bombs are creamy, warming, and utterly cozy.
With the drop of one vanilla pumpkin bath bomb into your bath, the fizzing will make your bath water look like warm milk froth sprinkled with pumpkin spice. Slip in and get downright comfy while enjoying a cup of hot tea or reading a book as you soak.
Now you can create cozy DIY projects using essential oils too. Start with the super simple bath oil recipe, or make a splash with homemade bath bombs. Either way, you’ll find yourself happy and content.
