What can we put in our fireplace to create a fragrance or aromatherapy while a fire is burning?

I’ve recently gotten into aromatherapy, and I was wondering if anyone had any experience or ideas in making something flamable ( perhaps sawdust in wax) that would infuse our home with some good smelling scent as we burnt a fire?? ( so basically I want a handheld– SOMETHING– to place in the fire that would fragrance our home)

thanks,

K

  1. Check with your local hardware store. There are products that are made to change the color and scent of a fire, and they would know them there. Don’t try any home made products, as they might burn your house down.

  2. I have found that starting the fire with birch bark works well . it makes excellent starter and burn quickly but the fragrance lasts for a while . Also try burning apple wood .

  3. Place your favorite scented candle in a fireproof container large enough the hold the candle wax after it has melted. Set the container behind / beside the firebox, but where it won’t actually be in the flame. As the fire melts the wax it will give off it’s fragrance, and after the fire goes out the wax will re-solidify and be ready for the next time you light the fireplace.
