The basic design of a candle warmer is a bowl that sits over either an electric heating element or a small tealight. The heat source heats your choice of wax tarts, aromatic oils or other liquid potpourri to fill the room with your favorite flavors.
In summary, you can use essential oils, vanilla extract or liquid potpourri in your wax warmer. You can even make your own wax melts with a unique scent instead of buying them from stores.
Homemade liquid potpourri oil has been made for centuries to bring a pleasant aroma into the air of homes and offices. Homemade liquid oil potpourri can be made with essential oils to delight your senses and can be burned and heated in candle burners and potpourri warmers.
Potpourri in liquid or oil form is an aromatic alternative to dried flower petals and spices. Aside from the welcome freshness, its pleasant smells, derived from essential oils and perfume or liquid fragrances, can elevate the spirit and calm the nerves.
Liquid potpourri is usually made from fragrance oil (or essential oils) mixed with a carrier oil such as vitamin E or jojoba oil. From there, the potpourri is mixed together so that it becomes an oil in its own right.
Note that you can also use liquid potpourri, which you can find at any dollar store for around $1. When using this method, remove the water and simply fill the entire container with liquid potpourri. Then simply plug in and enjoy! This is really an easy way to fill up those plug-ins and save money on top of that.
Simply place Unstopable’s MELTS Fresh fragrance in a wax warmer* and enjoy hours of clean scent that’s scandalously invigorating.
1. Combine with potpourri. An easy idea for reusing scented candle wax is to combine it with your potpourri. This is a great idea for scented pillar candles that have reached the end.
You can put potpourri in cloth bags (sachets) and place them in drawers and closets to scent clothes. Put them in storage boxes, chests, musty cabinets to create pleasant aromas. Tie them to doorknobs. Squeeze every now and then to release the scent.
Instead of orris root, you can use cornstarch or talcum powder. This is called a fixative and it keeps the scent in potpourri. However, if the air dissipates, you will need to periodically reapply the essential oil drops to the potpourri. Never throw away old potpourri, simply refresh it.
First, fill the pot two-thirds full with water, then add dried potpourri to the water. Cover with the lid and let simmer. Make sure the pot is filled with enough water to cover the dried potpourri. You can also use fresh or dried petals with water in your simmer pot.
The main difference between fragrance oils and essential oils is that fragrance oils are made in a laboratory and essential oils are made from natural materials. This difference comes from the ingredients that make up each oil and where those ingredients come from.
For plug-ins like Airwick, it’s 75% pure essential oil, 25% base carrier oil like grapeseed oil, and a few drops of 70% strength rubbing alcohol. Fill only 3/4 of the bottle with this mixture. You can buy replacement wicks from Amazon or use clean laces.
“In light of this, it would be very dangerous to use fabric softener as a diffuser in a carafe with chopsticks or a plug-in diffuser. Especially if you light candles in the house, this is a recipe for disaster. ‘
