How To Make A Homemade Tealight Oil Warmer

by Lillian Bishop

Are you dealing with a stressful time in your life? One way to deal with stress is through aromatherapy. The pleasant scent that each oil emits can relax and soothe you after a busy day. The steps below will teach you how to make a homemade tealight oil warmer with some inexpensive materials.

Use The Following Materials

  • glass bowl
  • small, clay pot
  • tealight
  • matches
  • decorative glass pieces or marbles
  • essential oils
  • heat resistant spray paint
  • power drill
  • drill bits
  • newspaper
  • scissors
  • self adhesive trim
  • measuring tape
  • soap 
  • water
  • lint free cloth
  • bucket

Prepare The Base

Select a small pot that has an opening that is smaller than the base of the bowl. The pot will be supporting the bowl, so it is important to have one that is sturdy. Soak the pot in a bucket of water for an hour. Clay is porous. After water is absorbed through the material, you will be able to drill holes through it in the next step without having to worry about the clay crumbling.

Remove the pot and place it on a newspaper covered surface. Drill several holes through the pot with a power drill. The holes will provide oxygen that is necessary for the candle to burn. Spray the surface of the pot with heat resistant paint. Wait a couple hours for the paint to dry.

Prepare The Bowl

Select a small glass bowl that has a larger base than the opening of the pot.The bowl will hold the essential oils as the flame from the candle warms them. Clean the bowl out with soapy water. Rinse it with plain water. Dry the bowl with a lint free cloth. Place decorative glass chips or marbles in the base of the bowl. The decorations will add visual appeal.

Wrap a measuring tape around the rim of the bowl. Cut a piece of self adhesive trim that is the same measurement. Peel the paper backing from the trim. Adorn the top of the bowl by attaching the piece of trim around the rim. Press the trim down firmly against the glass to secure it. Set the bowl on top of the base when finished. 

Enjoy Your Favorite Oils

Place a tealight in the bottom of the pot. Light it with a match. Pour one your favorite essential oils into the bowl. Place the bowl on top of the pot. Lay back and relax as you smell the pleasant scent that is emitted from your new tealight oil warmer. 


About Me

Creating a Quick Home Sale

One of the things that helped sell my home quickly, at least according to my real estate agent, was the time I spent fixing up the landscaping. I knew about the importance of eye appeal, but who would have thought that something as simple as a storage shed or a backyard veggie garden could make such a big difference in the sale price of a home, and the length of time it takes to sell said home? Well to prove that my landscaping techniques worked, I helped three friends sell their homes using some of my tips and tricks. It seems to have worked, because every one of them were able to fetch their asking price and sell before their goal deadlines. So, I figured I should help others out there who could use a little help in the home selling department… hopefully you'll find inspiration on the pages here.
