Wax fragrances are an excellent alternative to scented candles. You just never have to worry about fire or smoke stains with them. They shine through and perfume the entire home and immediately add a festive mood to any place. You just have to make them and hang them wherever you want or where you need to scent the air a little. It suddenly makes the living room cozier, turns the bathroom into a scented spa, chases away moths from the wardrobe, the porch can deal with the occasional unpleasant smell of shoes, and the floor will immediately be less haunted with them. We traditionally decorate all rooms with them, they hang in our hall and we keep them in wardrobes and drawers with laundry all year round.

For children and parties

We love candles, they instantly conjure up a warm atmosphere at home and we definitely can't imagine Christmas without them. But they don't get along very well with small children, mischievous animals, exuberant parties and in general with all situations where things get out of control easily. Christmas scents are perfect for those times when a burning candle is a bit dangerous. They have a lot in common with candles, they smell wonderful in the home and look wonderful, but you don't need to light them. And if you're one of those people who has to double check after leaving the house to make sure the flame is really out, these beauties will be just the thing for you.

A last-minute gift that will please everyone

If you start making wax perfumes, be sure to stock up on them. They are perfect as original Christmas gifts. Just slide them into a nice one bag, tie with a string, add a name tag and the gift is ready! Plus, they're ready in minutes, so if you get a last-minute Christmas party invite, give them a go. It will please all colleagues at work, neighbors, friends, mother, grandmother and mother-in-law. We make them in smaller sizes as unadorned, fragrant Christmas ornaments. They look great on a pine tree or a tree!

No need to look for anything

We would almost bet that you already have the ingredients needed to make this fragrant decoration at home! With a little wax, be it soy, beeswax, palm wax or perhaps fragrant flower wax, your favorite essential oil, pieces of warm Christmas spices or dried fruit or herbs, you can create in the back of your hand. And if you don't have silicone molds at home (be sure to write to Santa about them, they are useful for many recipes), you can do it with a baking sheet lined with baking or parchment paper, a knife and Christmas cookie cutters. Then you just need to find a stick or a metal pin to make a hole and get a few pieces of string or a bow and that's it.

Even children enjoy decorating the solidifying wax with spices or dried fruit, choosing scents and cutting out different shapes, so prepare something good (like hot chocolate with homemade marshmallows), tune in to Christmas carols and enjoy the pre-Christmas afternoon.

The smell of Christmas

We already talked about the fact that scents can take us back in time, light up memories, harmonize and set us on the right track in our fragrant autumn article. Christmas smells of cinnamon, orange, cloves and star anise, freshly baked vanilla rolls, pine needles, chocolate and wrapping paper. A scented home will add a spark to all festive activities, from creating an advent calendar, decorating a tree or preparing festive treats. We love the combination of lovage, orange, cinnamon and also mint, tangerine, star anise, sandalwood or bergamot with cloves and cinnamon. As long as we don't have a Christmas tree at home, we evoke the smell of pine needles and forests with pine, cypress and cedar. Bois de siam gets along well with lime and geranium, and camphor with eucalyptus and rosemary.

You will enjoy the fragrance the most if you hang the fragrances in places where the sun shines, where the heat from the stove or heater goes, and in the bathroom near the bathtub or shower. If the perfumes are heated, they will release much more aroma.

What does it take?

We do not specify the quantity on purpose, it depends on how many scents you want to make, how much you will decorate them and how intense the scent you want

- Wax

- Favorite essential oils (about 20-30 drops are enough for 400 grams of heated wax) or scents for candles

- Candle colors (optional)

- Whole spices (cinnamon bark, star anise, cloves, ...)

- Dried herbs (jasmine, lavender, calendula, chamomile, rose petals, ...)

- Dried fruit (orange, lemon, apple, ...)

- Dried resin, bark and other fruits also look great ( myrrh, frankincense, soap or sandalwood or bee pollen)

... and it will also come in handy

- A silicone mold according to your imagination (or a tray lined with baking paper)

- Cutters, skewers, knife

- String, bows and bags for decoration

How to do it?

Melt the wax in a water bath, stirring occasionally. Prepare molds or a baking sheet with baking paper. Remove the liquid wax from the heat and scent it with selected essential oils (try 3 drops each of lemon, bergamot, nutmeg, cinnamon and clove) or scents. Mix and pour it into molds or on a baking sheet. Let it harden for a while and decorate the wax with spices, herbs and fruit, pressing everything into it gently. You can also use a brush to brush spices and fruit with melted wax to create a nice shiny effect. Use a stick to make holes in the not completely solidified wax to thread the string through and, if you are not using silicone molds, use a heated cutter or knife to create the desired shapes from the wax. And you are (almost) done! Now all you have to do is let the prepared fragrances harden, then thread the strings through the holes and hang them around the house or please your loved ones with them.
