Instructions
 

  • Melt beeswax in a double boiler. Beeswax is easy to work with but it is flammable if it gets too hot.
    Yes you "could" use the microwave but a double boiler is much safer.

  • While the wax is melting, prepare your molds by spraying with mold release or Pam Cooking Spray. I prefer to use a silicone mold that I bought for this purpose.
    But you can use any small mold such as : cookie cutters lined with plastic wrap, small plastic bowls, silicone molds in different shapes etc.

  • Once the wax is completely melted remove pan from heat. Add 30-50 drops of the essential oil of your choice.
    You may divide the wax into 2 or 3 different cups if you want to have different scents in one batch.
    If you do so, adjust the drops of essential oil per cup.

  • Pour wax into prepared molds of your choice. Sprinkle dried herbs on the surface of the cooling wax. Now you must be patient while the wax hardens.
    If patience is not your virtue you can put the mold in the freezer for a bit to hurry things along.

  • Once the wax has cooled completely and hardened, remove your beeswax sachet from the mold.
    If you use the type of mold that I do, you will have a "hanger" holed in your sachet.
    If not, use a small knife to create one. Add a colorful ribbon or piece of natural twine to each sachet to serve as a hanger. Enjoy!

Notes

* This easy project is a lot of fun. However, you must take proper safety measures to prevent burns or fire.
Beeswax can be difficult to remove from pots and pans. It is best to have special ones that are dedicated to wax use.
