We don’t need a guy to remind us how awesome we are just because it’s Valentine’s Day. However, sometimes it’s nice getting that extra bit of reassurance from our friends. Remind your BFFs how magical they are with these wax unicorn DIY air fresheners for Galentine’s Day. Scented with natural essential oils, these unicorn air fresheners are perfect for musty closets or to use as drawer sachets. Or hang them in a sunny kitchen window.

These DIY air fresheners are super easy to make. They’re also the perfect reminder that, yes, we DO sparkle every single day! (Even if we don’t always realize it.)

Do you believe in (YOUR) magic?

I was the lucky girl who got an awesome unicorn mold for Christmas from my boyfriend. While my first thought was to make unicorn soap, I’m excited that my first project for this mold was actually for Galentine’s Day gifts. Of course, actually completing this project didn’t go off without a hitch. The one day I’m ready to put this project to paper (or wax in this case) I realized that I wasn’t able to dig my beeswax out of storage.

We are currently living in a shoebox, as I like to call it. Therefore, most of my craft supplies are stacked in crates. These crates are pretty heavy. They are also stacked in pairs of two on top of our kitchen cabinets. Because of their height and weight, my stash of beeswax was completely unattainable. And my boyfriend, of course, was at work. So I did what every crafty girl does. I improvised.

I still had a bit of white cosmetic beeswax leftover from last month’s Simply Earth box within easy reach. So I used the rest of that beeswax for this project. I also grabbed the only other workable ingredient I had within reach – stearic acid.

Similar to a wax, stearic acid is a solid saturated fatty acid obtained from either animals or vegetable fats. This waxy substance is a common ingredient in soaps, cosmetics and detergents. In my case, I keep vegetable-based stearic acid on hand to use as an emulsifying agent for lotions, creams and deodorants. Luckily, it also worked well as an ingredient for my wax-based DIY air fresheners.

While you can create my DIY air fresheners with simply essential oils and beeswax, the stearic acid does raise the melting the point slightly. This in turn allows you to use a bit more in the way of essentials oils to scent your DIY air fresheners if you’re so inclined.

Waxes and their melting points.

Beeswax has a melting point of around 144°F. While stearic acid melts at about 150°F. However, if you prefer to make vegan DIY air fresheners, you can substitute the beeswax in this recipe for candelilla wax, which melts at around 154°F. Just keep in mind that candelilla wax is yellow. Therefore its natural color will have an impact on your finished DIY air fresheners.

Alternately carnauba wax, which is also yellow, has a melting point of 180°F, and can be used in place of the beeswax. Just keep in mind that the pour and cleanup may be a bit trickier due to its higher melting point.

Get your glitter on.

Of course, you can’t have unicorn air fresheners without some sparkle and glitter! I used a purple mica to tint my DIY air fresheners. I also included both electric blue and chunky bubblegum eco-friendly glitter to give these wax unicorn air fresheners some bling. A bit of star ribbon that I scored from the Target Dollar Spot over Christmas then gave my DIY unicorn air fresheners that extra bit of magic.

Tips & Tricks:

  • Keep in mind that the color of your DIY air fresheners will appear darker when the wax is melted. Once the wax air fresheners solidify, the white color of the wax will lighten the final color.
  • The mica and glitter you use for this project will sink somewhat toward the bottom of the mold. This means that the front and back of your wax unicorn air fresheners may be different shades. In my case, the front of my unicorn air fresheners were purple, while the backs were a more subdued pink.
  • Because most of the glitter will sink to the bottom of the mold, you may want to sprinkle a bit of glitter onto your DIY air fresheners once you’ve poured them into the mold. This will give the backside of your wax air fresheners that extra bling they won’t have otherwise.
  • You can use your favorite essential oil or essential oil blend for your DIY air fresheners. I recommend cedarwood essential oil for closets. Or try lavender essential oil for the unicorn drawer sachets. Want to hang your unicorn wax air fresheners in your kitchen? Try a bright, fresh fragrance like lemongrass! Alternately, you can also use your favorite fragrance oil.
  • Depending on what you have on hand, you can use all beeswax, all stearic acid or all some other wax. Mixing wax with stearic acid isn’t the only way to make these.

Instructions:

Weigh out the beeswax and stearic acid using a digital scale. Combine in a double boiler and heat over medium-low heat until melted. Once melted, weigh out the essential oil and stir into the melted wax. Remove from heat, then stir in your choice of mica and glitter.

Evenly pour the melted wax into two cavities of the unicorn mold. Wait about 30-60 seconds. Then position a chopstick in the wax of the first wax air freshener toward the top of the unicorn’s head. Hold the chopstick in place, pushing the chopstick toward the bottom of the mold. Do this for about 15 – 30 seconds or until the chopstick stays in place of its own fruition. Then repeat this process with a second chopstick for the other wax unicorn air freshener.

Once the wax has solidified and starts to pull away from the edge of the mold cavities, remove the air fresheners from the mold.

Push the chopsticks forward through the front of the unicorn air fresheners, if needed, so the hole goes completely through from front to back.

DIY Homemade Deodorizing Air Fresheners
Make your own custom scented deodorizing air fresheners. These flower shaped air freshener disks are easy to make and can be used anywhere in your home! I made mine into flower shaped disks using a silicone chocolate flower mold. Here’s how to make your own homemade air fresheners.
 
How to make air freshener deodorizing disks - DIY Homemade Air Freshener Disks Tutorial

DIY Deodorizing Air Freshener Disks

 
Ingredients:
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons baking soda
1/2 cup distilled water
 
Tools:
glass jars or other container for storage
bowl
fork
 
Directions:
Measure out one cup and two tablespoons of baking soda into a bowl. Then measure out 1/2 cup of distilled water and add to the baking soda. Using a plastic pipette, measure out 75 drops of your fragrance or essential oils of choice.
 
The fragrance you choose is entirely up to you and your personal taste. However, if you choose essential oils based on their properties, they can actually do more than just provide a scent and deodorizing power. For example, if you want to use these to freshen closets and keep moths and other insects away, use cedarwood essential oil. Other essential oils you can use to deter biting insects are Citronella, Clove, Lemongrass, Rosemary, Tea Tree, Cajeput, Eucalyptus, Catnip, Lavender, and Peppermint. Combine your favorites to not only deter insects but to create a pleasing fragrance, then place the air freshener disks around your patio area.
 
Now that you have placed all of the ingredients into a bowl, use a fork to thoroughly blend the ingredients together. Once combined into a thick paste – you can add more baking soda if needed – press the mixture firmly into your molds. Set the molds aside to dry for about 48 hours.
 
It’s tempting to unmold them earlier, I know. But I tried to unmold mine sooner as I thought they were ready, but they actually weren’t. Mine were still slightly damp and while they came out of the molds easily by turning the molds over, some of them cracked and had pieces fall off. So be patient!
 
Homemade Deodorizing Air Freshener Disks Tutorial

Once your air freshener deodorizers have dried and you’ve removed them from the molds, place them in your desired location. Any air fresheners disks you aren’t using right away, simply store in an air tight container. I used hinged lid glass jars for mine. I found mine at JoAnn’s, but you can buy them from an online supplier as well.

 

To dress up your storage containers for gifting, simply wrap a piece of decorative washi tape around the jars.You can also try this recipe for making your own homemade gel air fresheners with water, vodka, gelatin and fragrance.

Need household ideas that will save you money? You’re not alone. Following are some great DIY ideas that allow you to enjoy some of your favorite luxuries for less than retail by simply making your own!

While I’ve posted previously on how to save money on laundry and dishes by making your own laundry and dishwasher detergent and even household cleaners, here are a few other great household ideas for pinching pennies!

Tidy Mom has an excellent recipe for making an all natural, homemade drain cleaner using just baking soda and vinegar. Not only is it a LOT cheaper than buyer chemical drain cleaners, but it's non-toxic and won't harm the environment. Plus, it really does work.

Household Ideas for Saving Money

Tidy Mom has an excellent recipe for making an all natural, homemade drain cleaner using just baking soda and vinegar. Not only is it a LOT cheaper than buyer chemical drain cleaners, but it’s non-toxic and won’t harm the environment. Plus, it really does work.

My parents use this method to clear their drains whenever the water starts to drain slowly. I’m not sure how well if at all if it works on standing water – anyone tried this before? – but if you use this solution on a regular basis you should have no worries.

Febreeze seems to be a household staple for most everyone since gaining popularity for its ability to neutralize tough odors after being introduced some years back. In fact, this past March this air freshener created by Procter & Gamble hit the $1Billion sales mark. The price for this product isn’t cheap though. At a retail price of $5.59 each, it’s not budget savvy for those on fixed budgets facing rising food and energy costs.

But if you have pets or even kids into sports, it’s not necessarily something you want to live without. So I was super psyched to find a knock off recipe for Febreeze at Fake It Frugal. A 32oz. bottle of the knock off costs just 15 cents. I haven’t tried this yet, but would love to hear feedback if you decide to give it a shot.

If you enjoy scenting your home, but want a cheaper alternative, then turn to Holy Crickey for her diy idea for refilling your Wallflowers Scented Plugin with natural essential oils. Buying your essential oils in bulk will save money in the long run and you always know just what is going into your air because you choose the ingredients.

If you by chance have a bottle of cheap vodka left at your house from your last shindig that you don’t plan to drink – I mean, I wouldn’t use Grey Goose or Ciroc for this – you can finish it off with twelve great household uses for vodka found at Apartment Therapy.

Vodka is great for things like keeping aphids off household plants, cleaning, removing stains on fabric, and even getting rid of the smell of cigarette smoke.

Don’t throw out your leftover soap slivers. Instead, use the leftover soap bits from your shower to create a DIY pre-laundry stain treatment. The recipe for this laundry stain remover is available on Tip Nut.

1. When painting a room, keep some of the paint aside in an old baby food jar for quick touch ups. (via New Uses for Old Things: Kids Edition from Real Simple.)

2. Make salad in a jar and keep it fresh for up to 14 days while making enough to last for ten days at one time. Find out how at Salad in a Jar.

3. Use citrus oil to remove sticky residue from jars and other glass you want to recycle. (via Green Your Way.)

4. Add drawers to the bottom of your kitchen cabinets in order to create more storage space. You’ll find the diy for building under-cabinet drawers at The Family Handyman.
