Making your house smell good may require strong scents to ensure that the fragrance will linger for long. If you’re using wax melts, you can find many fragrance oils that are powerful enough to make your home smell good longer. But why fragrance oils?
Why Use Fragrance Oils
The reason we recommend you use fragrance oils for your wax melts is that they smell better compared when it’s in a bottle. When the fragrance oil is bottled up, you can only smell the top notes.
On the other hand, when you mix the fragrance oil into wax melts, you can smell all three notes, which will make it heavier as well.
When it comes to making fragrances heavier, there are a lot of factors here. The first factor is its concentration. Typically, a heavy fragrance is 100 percent concentrated, which means that it isn’t diluted with anything. As a result, you can get the full aroma of the fragrance.
Another factor that makes a heavier fragrance is the evaporation time. Fragrances with top, middle and base notes tend to linger longer.
You see, the first scent you smell is the top note, when it evaporates, that’s when you get a whiff of the middle notes, and finally, you’ll get the base notes that anchor the scent to make it linger longer.
How to Care for Fragrance Oils
When you plan to get several fragrance oils to add to your wax melts, you need to care for them properly. Since these are concentrated, you should store them carefully. Concentrated fragrance oils must be stored in a dark place to prolong their strength.
Another thing is that even though it’s tempting to get all the fragrance oils out there, hoarding and overstocking will lead you nowhere. Since these are concentrated, they can last a long time. Having too many in your cupboard can be overwhelming. So it’s best to buy fragrance oils that will last you for a reasonable amount of time before you shop for more.
Finally, before you use fragrance oil for wax melts, make sure you refer to the manufacturer’s instructions. This is because not all oils are the same, which is why it’s crucial you check the special instructions first.
When choosing the right fragrance oil, it all depends on your preference. However, you can make it easier for you by thinking about the rooms in the house.
For example, it’s best to choose a strong scent in the kitchen that is associated with cooking and baking. Therefore, find fragrance oils with herby and fruity notes. On the other hand, you can also choose spice-based scents, such as clove and cinnamon to cleanse the air from the smell of food.
Another example is in the bathroom. Choose a blend of grapefruit, bergamot, orange, mandarin and lime for that fresh, strong scent that can do wonders in your bathroom. You can also explore oceanic and citrus aromas for the bathroom.
Using fragrance oils for your wax melts is a great idea if you’re looking for scents that can last longer. Keep in mind all the tips we’ve noted above, and you’ll be well on your way to creating unique home fragrances.
