Mason Jar Luminaires

You’ll Need: 4 mason jars (or old pasta sauce or jelly jars)

40 drops – Cedarwood, Lavender, Lemon and Thieves essential oils (or use your own combination of oils but these are known to help to repel the buggies)

2 fresh lemons

2 fresh limes

8 sprigs fresh rosemary

Floating tea light candles

 

To Assemble (makes 4 jars)

  • Slice the lemons and the limes and set aside for a moment – I like to have two each just in case but you can possibly use one each
  • Place two sprigs of rosemary  into each jar
  • Fill each jar 3/4 full with water
  • Add the essential oils  – 10 drops each per jar – and swirl slightly
  • Place a slice each of lemon and lime into each jar
  • Add more water if needed to raise the level to almost full
  • Place a floating tea light candle on top
  • Set outside, light and make some magic once you light them*
  • Replace tea lights as needed – I recommend having some extras on hand!
  • Discard fruit and liquid in jar after 2 – 3 days depending on your climate; rinse jars and start fresh as needed
