How to Make Scented Rocks
Place rocks in a bowl or dish to scent a room. A nice alternative to potpourri!
1/2 cup plain flour
1/2 cup salt
1/4 teaspoon essential oil (your favorite scent, or blend of scents)
2/3 cups boiling water
Food coloring, if desired
In bowl, mix dry ingredients well. Add essential oil, and boiling water to dry ingredients. (Scent will be strong, but will fade slightly when dry.)
For colored stones, blend in food coloring, one drop at a time until desired shade is reached. Blend ingredients, and form balls into different shape and sizes to look like stones. Allow stones to dry.
*another option is to roll out the “dough”and bust out the cookie cutters, using seasonally appropriate scents, make decorations for the holidays–everything from peppermint scented candy canes to vanilla scented valentine hearts
