How to Make Lavender Essential Oil Wax Sachets

Nov 14

I was recently searching around for beeswax recipes and I came across wax sachets. I never heard of them before, have you?

Wax sachets are similar to candles but you do not burn them, you just use them as scented bars to fragrance your home and clothing drawers.

You can use different essential oils in the recipe but I like lavender and cedarwood. Cedarwood essential oil is well known for its ability to act as an insect repellent. Lavender essential oil is famous for its lovely floral aroma and its variety of therapeutic properties.

The dried lavender adds an additional scent as well as a pretty texture to the heart sachets. You can hang them all around your house, or place a few on your coffee table. You can then relax and enjoy the soothing scent without worrying about the house burning down.

How to Make Lavender Essential Oil Wax Sachets

These are easy to make. This is a simple recipe you can modify with essential oils and herbs.

Lavender and Cedarwood Heart Wax Sachets

  • 2 cups wax pellets
  • 1/4 cup dried lavender buds
  • 30 drops Lavender essential oil
  • 50 drops cedarwood essential oil
  • Heart Silicone Mold
  • Craft stick

Step 1: Place beeswax pellets in a glass measuring cup. Place measuring cup into a pan with 2 inches of boiling water.

Step 2: Allow to completely melt on a low-medium boil. It will take about 15 minutes. Once melted, remove from heat.

Step 3: Let cool for 2 minutes (set timer). Sprinkle a little lavender on the bottom of the heart silicone mold.

Step 4: Pour rest of dried lavender into melted wax and stir in with craft stick. Note: Some will mix in, most will float.

Step 5: Add in essential oils and stir well.

Step 6: Pour wax blend into molds. I filled my hearts only about half full and was able to fill 6 molds with it as evenly as possible. Scoop out any remaining dried lavender into molds. Take craft stick and spread out any lavender clumps you see in the molds before the wax hardens.

Step 7: Allow to cool for about 1 hour. Then pop out of mold. Place into organza bag for gift giving or place in clothing drawers.
