How to Make Essential Oil Wax Sachets

Author: Stephanie Pollard


  • Clean aluminum can or double boiler
  • Silicone molds
  • Long metal nail (for creating the hole)
  • String


  • 2 cups soy wax flakes
  • 2 teaspoon essential oil of your choice see notes for fragrance blends
  • 2 teaspoons dried flower petals or herbs


  • Fill your wax pitcher or aluminum can 3/4 of the way with wax flakes. Place the can in the center of a small saucepan and pour water in the saucepan until it reaches 2 inches up the sides of the can. Bring the water to a boil over medium heat and keep a watchful eye on the wax until it's completely melted.
  • Once the wax has melted, add your essential oils and stir to combine.
  • Pour the wax into one of the mold cavities and let it cool slightly.
  • When the wax has just begun to set, place dried flowers and herbs in the wax. Repeat until you've filled all the cavities.
  • When the wax has cooled completely, remove the sachets from your molds.
    Optional: Take a long metal nail and (carefully!) heat it for a couple seconds over an open flame being careful not to burn yourself. Use the nail to melt a small hole through the top of your wax bars (I found it best to start at the back and go through to the front). Thread a piece of string through the hole and tie.
  • Hang your sachets around the house or wherever you'd like to enjoy a clean, fresh scent.
