Air Freshener Candle

Our cozy little home has only two closets in it. One is for our clothes in the bedroom and the other is a small bathroom linen closet. I don’t have the room to store all our linens, extra blankets and towels in the bathroom, so I use some plastic crates and an ottoman with storage built in. These are great ways to store things; however, I do notice a plastic/store smell to some items that have been stored for longer periods of time. I set out to make some air fresheners for them.

Here is what you will need:

  • Mug warmer
  • Glass jar
  • Beeswax or other wax
  • Essential Oils of choice

Air Freshener Candle

I took out my mug warmer and a clean baby food jar…


…added some beeswax to the jar and let it melt.


Once the wax is melted, remove from heat and add essential oils–as much or as little as you like.


Let harden and then place in the storage container. Be sure that it will not be near a vent as you don’t want it to melt onto your linens and blankets. My home stays pretty cool all year long and I do not put them near a vent. I have not had a problem with them melting yet. You could punch holes in the lid of the jar if you want to have a cover.


I have also added essential oils to a cotton ball inside the jar, topped off with a piece of cloth over the opening, and that worked ok too.
