You will need washcloths, some essential oils, a large bowl, a large ziplock bag and some twine.
I ordered white washcloths on Amazon, and you can find those here. And any refreshing
essential oils that you like, will work.
Some good options are bergamot, thieves, lemon, eucalyptus and lavender.
I used lemon, lavender and eucalyptus for mine.
how to make your towels
To make the towels, you will fill your large bowl with water and add the drops of essential oil.
I used about 7-8 drops total, so if you are using several different oils, just divide the drops between them.
Next, soak the washcloths in your water mixture, then squeeze out the excess water.
Then fold the washcloths in thirds so the seam doesn’t show.
Fold and roll each cloth individually and tie up with a piece of twine.
Put the cloths in the ziplock bag and place in the fridge or freezer until ready to use them.
Obviously, if you freeze them, they will stay cold a bit longer, so this is a good option if you are entertaining outside in the heat.
If you are hosting a get together, these are beautiful arranged on a tray and embellished with lemon slices and maybe mint or rosemary sprigs.
They are perfect for an outdoor picnic, backyard barbeque or shrimp/crab boil. Your guests will be impressed with the display and will welcome these refreshing towels.
Give these DIY refreshing fingertip towels a try and let me know what oils you like to use, because I love to hear from you!!
