How to Reuse Bath and Body Works Wallflower Bulbs
I just love Bath & Body Works’ wallflowers, but I rarely buy them unless I have a coupon or they are running a crazy good promotion. Not to mention all of the crazy chemicals that go into making them…
Here is a super easy way to get the biggest bang for your buck and reuse your Bath and Body Works Wallflower Bulbs! These run about $6 per refill usually, and you can DIY it yourself for a fraction of that depending on the oils used. My favorite is lavender from Young Living, but I like to switch it up depending on the seasons.
- Fragrance oil or Essential oils
- Empty Wallflower Bulbs
- Pliers (or other flat tool)
- Replacement Wicks (Optional)
Begin by taking your empty bulb and your pliers (I used needle nose or a knife) and running it along the plastic edge of the top of the bulb where the wick is.
Gently loosen the wick and pull it free but DO NOT pull it out of its plastic covering. You want the entire plastic tip to pop out with the wick still in it.
Next, fill the bulb with the fragrance oil of your choice but be careful to not fill it to the top.
Take your plastic tip and wick you popped out and place it back in the bottle, giving it an extra push until it clicks in firmly.
Twist into your wall plugin and you have a new wallflower! If you think you might need a replacement wick you can purchase them on Amazon.
Note: To use essential oils, you will need to purchase unscented fragrance oil and mix about 10 drops essential oil into each bulb. Shake before pouring into the bulb. This is actually my favorite method.
I’m sure you have seen the posts about how oils have been life changing for people. I was a little skeptical at first because there is always something that people are raving about. I just don’t have the money to jump on board with every new thing, nor would I want to, so I typically don’t care or give in. BUT when your kids are in and out of the doctors office week after week you start to become desperate. Reallllly desperate. I was willing to try something else. Anything else, to help my littles stay as healthy as possible.
