How to Make Affordable, Easy DIY Wax Melts for Home Fragrance

Wax melts are often made from soy wax. However, unless you’ve been on a candle making binge lately, it’s unlikely that you have soy wax on hand. If you’re a soapmaker, on the other hand, it’s entirely possible you do have the ingredients needed for my DIY wax melts.

Rather than using soy wax for these wax melts, I chose to use palm kernel flakes and beeswax instead, as these are both ingredients that soapmakers are more likely to have on hand. This combination of ingredients works just as well as soy wax, and is an easy alternative if your wax melt warmer is feeling underappreciated.

Of course, as I know a lot of you are on budget, I’ve allowed for several variations of this recipe. Don’t have the funds for clamshell molds? No worries. You can make my easy DIY wax melts with beeswax using a small, existing silicone mold, such as a chocolate or mini ice cube mold. You can also hand roll your wax melts once the wax sets up, but before it fully hardens, and skip the mold all together!

In addition, you can also always swap out the fragrance oil for my DIY wax melts with another fragrance oil of your choice. Alternately, you can also use essential oils if you prefer to scent your home with natural fragrances. My natural essential oil blends for perfumes make a lovely substitution for synthetic fragrance oils.

blue cornflowers, optional

Tools & Materials:

digital scale

2 clamshell molds
utensil for stirring

Directions:

Using a digital scale, weigh out the palm kernel flakes and beeswax. Combine in a double boiler, then heat over medium heat until melted. Once the beeswax and palm kernel flakes have melted, remove from heat. Allow to cool slightly.

While the mixture of beeswax and palm kernel flakes, cool, weigh out the fragrance oil and set aside.

Then, add a few cornflowers to the clamshell molds you’ll be using to make this recipe for wax melts.

mixing mica fragrance into melted wax to make wax melts

Use a digital thermometer, such as this laser thermometer, to measure how hot the wax is. Once the wax reaches 140°F, stir in the fragrance oil. (If you are you using essential oils in your wax melts, use half the amount of essential oil as the fragrance oil, or a maximum of 7%. You can replace the remaining amount of fragrance oil with an odorless carrier oil, such as fractionated coconut oil to ensure they melt easily in your fragrance warmer.)

Then mix in a pinch of mica powder.

Immediately pour the melted wax melt mixture evenly into two clamshell molds. Allow to cool.

Your wax melts are ready to use once they’ve fully hardened.

How to Make Wax Melts without a Mold:

If you don’t have a mold for making these easy DIY wax melts, then allow the wax to cool past 140°F. Once the wax looks solid, but is still in a semi-solid state (about the consistency of shea butter) roll the wax into balls.

You can press cornflowers or other botanicals onto the outside of the wax melts to keep them from sticking to your hands.

DIY Wax Air Fresheners with Essential Oils – Unicorn Style!

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 unicorn DIY wax air fresheners for Galentine’s Day. Scented with natural essential oils, these unicorn wax 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.

Scented with natural essential oils, these unicorn wax 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 we DO sparkle every single day!

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 wax 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 wax 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 wax 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.

Put some glitter in your wax air fresheners.

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 wax unicorn air fresheners that extra bit of magic.

Tips & Tricks for Making Wax Air Fresheners:

  • Keep in mind that the color of your DIY wax 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 wax 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 wax 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 for Crafting Your Unicorn Wax Air Fresheners:

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 unicorn wax 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.

DIY Deodorizing Air Freshener Disks

Ingredients:

1 cup plus 2 tablespoons baking soda
1/2 cup distilled water
75 drops essential oil or essential oil blend, of choice

Tools:

Two silicone chocolate flower molds
plastic transfer pipette
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!

Frugal homemaking tips and tricks for a fresh scent.

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 airtight 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.
