Guys, I love a good smelling anything! Car, room, man (haha); I even walk more slowly past the laundry detergent aisle when I’m grocery shopping because it smells just so darn good! So I’m gonna be honest with you, when it comes to stuff that smells good, I am a huge sucker!
So these wax warmer things really aren’t new, and some people have a preference of candles or incense over wax warmers. But I bought my $10 wax warmer from Walmart three years ago and I’ve used it literally every day since. So I wanted to share with you all some super easy and super affordable ways to feel good and keep your stuff smelling even better.
OK so if I haven’t already mentioned it, wax warmers are my absolute favorite. I really really like them because I don’t like the burning smell of a candle most of the time and with wax warmers you just put the wax that holds the scent directly in to a warm ceramic plate, that is warmed by a lightbulb that sits under the plate. This, I thought was a genius idea whoever came up with it and it really delivers a scent that is very concentrated and all-around amazing.
I usually enjoy cleaner smells such as lavender, cotton, and rain especially in the morning time, so wax warmers are perfect for these in particular because instead of getting this scent plus the smell of a burning wick, you just get the smell of “clean”.
So candles… They’ve been around forever, everyone uses them, and honestly they’re not going anywhere. I have a bittersweet relationship with candles because I don’t particularly like the burning smell of the wick, however during the colder months when warmer since are more popular, the slight smell of fire burning adds to the nuance and vibe the candle gives off.
There are hundreds of candles out there and you can get a good candle from almost anywhere. My favorite are the classic Yankee candles but a lot of different brands do a lot of great smelling candles and with a variety of different and unique scents.
OK oil diffusers, I don’t know very much about. I know that they are becoming more popular and that people really really like them. My roommate actually got one and she uses it all the time. My understanding is that Oil diffusers are sort of like wax warmers but instead of using wax you use scented oils sort of like incense but sort of really not….(great explanation Dori). With oil diffusers you also use water and the way that the smell gets out into the air is that the water and oil form into a vapor that releases out into the air which carries the scent of the oil out.
These work really well for nice light, airy, and faint scents. If you’re a person who has a sensitive nose or just likes a hint of a smell but doesn’t want to be overpowered by it, I would recommend an oil diffuser for sure!
I. Have. No. Clue
OK so that is about it for my little rant about how much I love scented anything and kind of a little guide to choosing the right scents for you! Thanks for reading!!
