I'm really excited about this new discovery! My mother-in-law shared this wonderful secret with me a few days ago and I'm literally thrilled about it.
So, instead of using the wax cubes, which contain who knows what kind of chemicals and only masks odors, you can use essential oils and diffuse them into the air with your wax warmer.
Fill the dish with water.
Choose whatever essential oil you love the most or need the most. I chose peppermint so my house smells like Christmas. Peppermint oil also helps you focus and concentrate when it's diffused into the air. Diffused oils can actually kill viruses and bacteria in the air! I just love a clean home. People say that an actual diffuser works much better than a candle warmer for medicinal purposes, which I believe, however other people swear that this method works perfectly for medicinal purposes. So just take that into consideration before you do this. As for me, I love knowing that I'm not inhaling anything harmful and I love the subtle aroma that fills my home.
Add a few drops and swish around with your finger.
Plug in and enjoy!

Read the comments below to decide if this is a good choice for you, some have worried about fire hazards. I have never had any such experience, but many readers have brought up some good talking points down below.
The smell isn't quite as powerful as the wax cubes, but it definitely makes a home smell pleasant.
