Scented Ink

Scenting Ink with Essential Oils

Along with scented stationery, scented inks date back to the Victorian days. Whether as a complementary gift to the scented stationery or alone, scented ink along with an elegant fountain or dip pen transports one back to more romantic times.

To created your scented ink, just add five drops of essential oil to a 2 oz bottled ink. Some suggestions for essential oils to use include:

bergamot
geranium
jasmine
lavender
patchouli
peppermint
rose otto
sandalwood
tuberose

Shake well before each use.

If giving as a present along with the scented stationery, you’ll probably want to coordinate scents. Scented inks are also wonderful to use on your own stationery, especially for special items such as wedding invitations, notecards, greeting cards, and the like.
