Understanding How Scenting Clay Works

What is Scenting Clay?

Take a walk in any of our boutiques and you will see our display shelves adorned with tiny delicate pieces of handmade clay in the form of flowers such as roses, carnations and lotus. These pieces of clay are called Scenting Clay Diffusers – an option to a flame-free, fuss-free method of delicate aromatic diffusion.

Now, you’ve heard of burners, reed diffusers and scented candles. But what exactly are Scenting Clay?

Cutie Clay Diffuser - Cactus (Lemongrass), $49.90


Scenting Clays are made with porous clay that can absorb essential oils and give off a subtle scent in the surroundings. Although its scent coverage is not as strong compared to its counterparts, they are perfect for enclosed areas that require just a tiny bit of scent freshening.

How to Use

Its usage is relatively simple;

Add 15 to 20 drops of your favourite essential oil into the clay and keep it enclosed in its box overnight to allow the oil to be completely soaked into the clay. The next day, remove from the box and place on your desired area to allow the scent to lightly diffuse in the area. To refresh the scent, add 10 to 15 drops every 2 to 3 days.

Some scenting clay diffusers also comes with a cotton wick at the bottom and a vase to fill in the essential oil diffuser liquid. To use, insert the cotton wick at the opening of the vase to allow it to soak in the essential oil diffuser liquid. Refill the vase when the essential oil diffuser liquid is running low.

The porous clay will soak up the essential oil and emit a subtle light fragrance that lingers in the nearby atmosphere. These clay pieces also look great as decorative pieces or paperweights around your home and office.


PRO TIP! Use insect repelling essential oils such as Citronella or Lemongrass on these scenting clay to deter insects from invading your space.
