  1. 1

    Put many drops of essential oil on top of your piece of firewood along the full length of the wood. Allow the oil to dry.

  2. 2

    Turn the wood upside down and add many drops of essential oil the full length of the back of the piece of wood. Allow to dry.

  3. 3

    Start a fire with your scented firewood within a few days.

Tips and warnings

  • How much oil you put on the wood depends on how pungent you want it to smell.
  • The longer you wait to burn the wood, the more the smell of the oil will have subsided.
