I don’t buy many homewares as the house is mainly full of toys! So when I do, I like them to be special, as well as kind to the environment. I have personally stopped buying candles or reed diffusers that you dispose of. But I love home fragrance, so I was excited to find an eco alternative.
Boostology is an online store offering a carefully curated selection of gifts and items for the home. Their star product has to be their Volcanic Potpourri. This beautiful matt black jar is full of black volcanic rocks with a striking red Agate stone lid.
Natural room scent
To use it a room scent, you simply add 6-10 drops of essential oil to the stones. The porous lava acts like a sponge, absorbing the oil and releasing the aroma. I chose the sunshine oil with my diffuser. This 100% natural, vegan blend contains grapefruit and bergamot, with ylang ylang flower. It is very uplifting and revitalising.
Not only does the lava diffuser look stunning, it provides a really lovely scent. It is not overpowering like some synthetic fragrances can be. I love that it will last for such a long time too, as you simply add more oil when you are ready to give it a boost or change to a different scent.
There are some really unique points that I love about this piece. Each stone lid is made from solid red Agate and is polished by hand. So each lid has its own individual grain and markings, making it a one-off. Secondly, crystal healers use lava rock to embody themselves with calmness and strength.
Uniqueness and sustainability
Boostology win extra points because they plant a tree for every order they receive. Which is so lovely 🌳
The Volcanic Potpourri is exclusive to Boostology. It is an investment piece at £49 (which includes one bottle of essential oil) but given its quality, longevity and natural elements it is worth every penny in my opinion. I am definitely a convert to this sustainable way to fragrance my home.
