Adding a homemade oil diffuser will bring in an extra source of mood lighting. It will also give you a waft sweet, soothing aromas into the air to further enhance the mood. You can buy oil diffusers in most stores and online. But making your own adds a personal touch that cannot be bought.

There are many different ways to create your own oil diffuser. One adventurous way is to take a small flower pot, chisel a hole in the side of it, place a ceramic oil diffuser on top and voila! The flower pot oil diffuser can then be painted or decorated to match your room.
