Scented Wax Figurines – An Elegant Way to Scent Your Home 8

Finished Wax Figurines

Finished Wax Figurines Aren’t they cute?!

Yesterday I shared how to make wax tarts. They are so simple and easy to do. However not everyone can or is comfortable using wax melters. Dormitories and apartments often have a ban on candles and melters. Not to worry! You can still scent your living space using a wax figurine. They are such an elegant way to softly scent your home.

I really like scented wax figurines because they not only add fragrance but can also add decor. If the wax figures are not producing much scent, place them by a window or heater vent. They will release more fragrance. It is also important to remember to place these wax figures on a pedestal where they can’t damage your furniture. You can even recycle and reuse something like an old pickle jar to layer these cute little figurines in! It looks great and smells awesome.

Weigh everything except the Mulberry Fragrance Oil into a microwave safe container. Heat until everything is liquid. Add the Mulberry Fragrance Oil and stir well. Pour the mixture into molds. Allow to cool. Remove from the mold and place on a stand. Admire and enjoy!

    I have a couple little beeswax figurine/Christmas ornaments like these. They are little drummer boys and were bought in Colonial Williamsburg, maybe 40 or 45 years ago. When the room is warm you can still smell a little of the warm beeswax/honey smell off of them. If they get too dusty, just run them under warm water! They are great.

    I noted that castor oil is listed on the 3rd photo down but not in the ingredients list- can this be used in place of mineral oil or… ?
    Thanks 🙂

    I’m curious, why use mineral oil? I never use it in anything anymore, so I don’t buy it. I saw a recipe that used fractionated coconut oil, so would that work instead? Thanks!

      While you could certainly use an oil such as fractionated coconut oil, I wanted to use something that would have a really long shelf life.
      I have had certain wax tarts for an embarrassingly long time. This helps with that.

      I hope this helps!
