Scented Notes & Letters 

Add a classic touch to a card or note with the unique aroma of your favorite essential oil. Whether you are looking to add a touch of romance or just trying to brighten someone's day, scenting your note with a complimentary essential oil will only enhance the message you are trying to send!


  1. Take 5–10 sheets of stationery, note cards, paper, or envelopes, and place them inside a large sealable plastic storage bag (such as a Ziplock brand bag).
  2. Drop 10–15 drops of your desired essential oil or oil blend on a tissue folded in eighths or on a Battery Operated Diffuser Aroma Pad. Place the tissue or pad between the sheets of paper inside the plastic bag.
  3. Seal the plastic bag, and allow it to sit for 1–2 days so that the aroma can permeate through the paper.
  4. When you desire to use the paper for a note or letter, take it out of the plastic bag, and use it as normal. Reseal any unused paper back in the plastic bag.

Extra Ideas:

  1. Use this technique to spice up Valentines, love notes, birthday cards, Christmas cards, event invitations, or any other letter or note.
  2. To scent many sheets of paper at one time, stack the paper in a box with an oiled tissue or pad every 5–7 sheets, and then seal the box shut with tape. Allow to sit for 1–2 days before using.
