Title: Wax Melters
Post by: Mary on July 26, 2016, 12:26:28 AM
If you have one of those lamps that has the wax melter on it & would like a natural alternative, here it is:

3 Tbl. Coconut Oil
3 tsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice
1/2 tsp. Cinnamon

Thanks Mary - I'm going to try this.  A few people here at work were saying that they don't use any room sprays, scented candles, etc because they're toxic.  I had never really thought much about that before.  It still won't stop me - I love when my house smells good - but if I can have a safer alternative I'm going to use it!!

I imagine there are other scents you can create too.

I was wondering about that.  I guess the coconut oil is the main oil and you change the other two ingredients?  I was thinking of maybe some essential oils for summer scents.  Maybe vanilla extract would work.  Ok - now I'm going to spend the rest of the day thinking up stuff to put in my wax melter!!   *tongue*

I should probably stick to flowery scents - anything that smells like food makes me want to start baking.   *uhh*

A safer alternative would be to use an old candle and chop it up, add the smell you want or even use bees wax.

I say this because coconut oil can does not stay solidified if it is above 70 degrees, so it might make a mess if trying to clean it up later on.
