My boyfriend bought me an amazing unicorn soap mold for Christmas. This is my first project with that mold. I thought that making unicorn air fresheners was a great way to enjoy something new that would also last forever.
I did run into a snafu when I was finally ready to make my DIY wax unicorn air fresheners. Believe it or now it as a storage fail. As in my boyfriend stacked my crates of crafting supplies on top of the kitchen cabinets in a way that I was unable to get them down without his help. Since I was in the mood to DIY and not about to wait around, I improvised this project a bit. So rather than using just beeswax for my air fresheners, I ended up combining beeswax and stearic acid that were within reach. Lucky for me, they turned out perfect.
If you'd like to use beeswax for your air fresheners, I recommend using white cosmetic beeswax. Otherwise the yellow color from natural beeswax will affect the final color of your DIY wax air fresheners.
However, you don't have to use beeswax. In fact, there are a number of different waxes that you can use. You can combine more than one wax. Or you can choose a vegan vegetable based wax as well. Check out the variety of waxes you can use here. (Plus you'll find my exact recipe!)
