How to: Scented Wax Sachet DIY

    These delightful scented wax sachets make a great weekend project with friends or kids, they are the perfect housewarming or thinking-of-you gift, PLUS wherever you end up hanging one will smell like heaven. Check out the simple DIY supplies and steps below.

    1. Measure about 3 cups of wax flakes in a measuring cup, and dump into pouring pot.
    2. Fill up a second separate pot of water and bring to a boil.
    3. Place the pouring pot into the other pot of boiling water (double broiler style) and stir occasionally, allowing wax to completely melt.
    4. Measure 1 cup of melted wax in a separate measuring cup. Add fragrance oil. Use about 50 drops of essential oil for every 1 cup of melted wax.
    5. Stir thoroughly.
    6. Pour into molds, about 1/2″ deep.
    7. Let the wax sit for about 2-3 minutes and slightly cool. I like to add the dried flowers when a slightly cooled layer has formed on the top, so that the dried flowers sit more on top of the sachet and don’t sink down into the middle of the wax.
    8. Let cool and harden completely. Put in refrigerator to speed hardening process.
    9. Gently pop each sachet out of the mold and shake off excess florals.
    10. Cut a long ribbon, insert through the hole. Tie once at the bottom (near top of the sachet) to keep secure.
    11. Gift, hang, enjoy!

      What was the ratio of lavender oil to lemon oil that you used ? It says use 50 drops per cup of melted wax so did you use equal amounts of each or more of one than the other ?
