Aromatherapy Recipe for Scented Greeting Cards and Wrapping Paper

Scenting your wrapping paper and greeting cards adds a wonderful touch to the holidays or any gift-giving occasion.


Allow an extra day before writing out your greeting card(s) or wrapping presents. Choose a blend such as the Christmas Tree blend, Frankincense & Myrrh Blend, Sugar & Spice blend, your own creation, or a single essential oil. Put 1-3 drops of the blend onto a cotton ball. The intent is to lightly fragrance the cards. Using too much essential oil can potentially cause the cards to have an intense aroma that some recipients may not appreciate.

Put up to 15 cards and the cotton ball in a large ziploc bag, seal, and let it sit for at least 24 hours. Take care not to let the oil come in direct contact with cards or envelopes as the fresh oil could stain them. For boxes of cards, you may have enough room to just put the cotton ball right in with the box.

For tissue or wrapping paper, follow the same procedure, but place the cotton ball into the package of tissue paper. Be careful not to let the oil come into contact with the paper. Close the bag up so the aroma can properly scent the tissue.

For wrapping paper, place the paper into a bag large enough to close and large enough to place a cotton ball inside without it coming into direct contact with the paper. Keep in mind that if you use a large paper bag for this purpose, the aroma from the essential oils will permeate the room.

Refrain from giving a scented card or scented wrapped gift to anyone who has allergies or sensitivities that may be affected by the oils.
