Add scents such as pumpkin pie spice, vanilla, or mint.Combine in a pot and stir well to get all the lumps out. Cook on the stove and stir constantly until it forms together. Lay it on a plate until it cools. Knead well and store it in a Ziploc bag. It should last for 6 months. Don't worry it if appears to smoke or burn. It will come off the bottom of your pot just don't leave it unattended.
