We’ve all come to appreciate fresh, clean fragrances in our
home. In fact, we associate certain fragrances
with places, experiences and people. The truth is that an aroma is the first
thing to trigger a memory, affect our behavior or change our mood. Perfumes are
used in all cultures.
comes down to is we know what we know – what we remember fondly makes us feel
better. There are scientific studies for everything, but fragrance is a big
deal for us humans – we know when food smells bad and we know when our dinner
is burning on the stove; when we stand next to a heavily perfumed person in an
elevator that makes us start to sneeze and count the floors; clean babies and fresh
laundry are delightful Citrus scents
like grapefruit, oranges or lemons bring upon a feeling of energy; lavenderis known to be relaxing – what is your favorite fragrance?
In the old
days, potpourri was simply a collection of preserved herbs, flowers and
fragrant plants gathered in a vase or wooden bowl to perfume the dusty, musky
smells of life without indoor plumbing. The traditional potpourri, still available
today, is a decorative art form of various textures, dried plants, fruits and
flowers, barks or other materials with added fragrance, blended by the designer,
to saturate these materials and add a gentle fragrance to the room.
potpourri is an ideal way to provide a strong long lasting fragrance for your
home or office space. Fragrances, designed specifically to bond with paraffin, are
added to decorative molded pieces of wax. These pieces can be combined, like
the dried mixtures, and displayed in a basket, tucked away in a corner of the
room for a gentle aroma. The wax is strongly scented so a few pieces will
deliver fragrance for weeks. The wax may be melted and re-melted in the top
cavity of a “steamer” with a low candle flame below or a small electricmelter with preset temperature settings (kind
of like a mini crock pot) to release even more fragrance as the wax is melted.
We have been making wax potpourri for over 25 years. We sold literally tons of
potpourri for many years to Wicks and Sticks stores – remember those candle shops
– typically located in major malls
across the country?
Become a fragrance designer - Mixing fragrances makes it
your personal recipe and you can change your scents to provide a new and
different experience. All melters, whichever style you choose, needs to be
placed on a heat resistant, flat surface for safety. Candlelit melters cast an
agreeable ambiance in any space – remember, never leave a burning candle
unattended – and place a safe distance from curious children or pets .
selecting the burner that is appropriate for your home, it’s time to choose the
fragrances you would like. Typically when burning potpourri you only need three
or four pieces to melt at a time. Because of the nature of #wax potpourri it’s
easy to combine scents to and make a new #fragrance. Some scent combinations we
suggest are: Clean Cotton: Snowy Night + Cool Water!
Day at the BeachMountain
Box Cool WaterNectarine
Of course you are
always welcome to pick one favorite scent and stick with it. Coffee lovers
would be interested in Caramel Coffee. Anyone looking for a clean scent might
try Desert Rain. Regardless of your choice you are sure to love your wax
potpourri for many days to come.
