  1. Depending on your preferences, add essential oils to an empty amber bottle. (Our recipe is for a lightly scented perfume. To make yours stronger double the number of drops we recommend.)

  5. Place charms on a baking sheet and allow to dry. (Follow the specific directions included with your clay. Some brands recommend air drying, others baking in the oven.)
  6. Once dry, add 2-3 drops of your preferred oil to each charm.
