There are many ways to add aroma to a room, such as using scented candles, burning incense or an aroma melt, which melts scented wax. Although you can purchase aroma melts from a department store, they can be costly and come in only a limited variety of scents. You can make your own homemade aroma melt using essential oils and natural beeswax that can be purchased at craft supply stores.
