  1. Could you use a different combo of other oils such as something to fit the season such as Orange&Clove or Lemon&Rosemary or Lemon&Lavender? If not using 3 oils what should the ratio be?

    • Of course you can switch up the oils! You probably want a total of 15–20 drops. A Lemon/Lavender combination can be equal amounts of each oil, Lemon/Rosemary can be equal amounts or more lemon, and Orange/Clove should be more orange than clove (probably 3–5 drops of clove and 10–15 drops orange).

    • The mold used for this project was saved from a commercially sold wax melt product. However, you can use any silicone mold, candy mold, or ice cube tray for this project.
