Recycled Wax Melts as Drawer Sachets and Fresheners

I am ADDICTED to wax melts and warmers right now. My house smells like a bakery with my HUGE collection of wax melts I’ve purchased from Scentsy and BHG. I love it so much! Here’s my box of wax melts so far. (I’m so addicted, I’m ordering and purchasing more as we speak! Eek!)

wax melt addictionHere’s the warmer I purchased from Walmart, came with four different packages of BHG wax melts (my favoritefavorite is Vanilla Caramel Spice).

Wax warmer obsessionHere’s the other warmer I bought from Scentsy. It’s in the corner of my living room, adding a nice touch of ambiance (the holes in it make hearts on the walls!) with the Christmas lights, don’t you think?

Melted wax melts poured back into the containerCollecting all these wax melt “jewels,” I wondered what I could do with them? They still smell nicely, because I get a huge whiff of awesomeness every time I open the top in order to add more.

wax melts recycledI decided to try putting them in our sock drawers. I mean, why not? I love it! Currently, I’ve just dropped these into the drawer, but, instead, I plan to get some cheese cloth so I can make little sachets to place in the drawer. Cool, huh?

Recycled wax melts in your drawerI like opening my drawer and instead of smelling the wood interior, I smell these scents instead. Kinda dreamy, if you ask me!
