A Guide on How to Make your Own Wax Melt at Home

If you enjoy scented snap bar wax melts but want one that is free of chemicals, you'll be pleased to learn that you can easily produce your own wax melts at home!

While most people may opt for natural scented candles, there are others who may prefer to look for flame-free ways to scent their homes. In case you are not acquainted with them, wax melts are essential blocks of wax you place in a warmer. And as they melt, they release their scent into the air just like natural scented candles.

The lovely smell that wax melts emit is associated with luxury and pampering. This is why we are going to show you how to make your own candle melt at home;

Ingredients to Use

  • Pillar wax
  • Fragrance oils
  • Dyes
  • Clamshells

Items you may Need

  • Heating pot
  • Heat source
  • Pouring jug
  • Thermometer
  • Weighing scale

The Procedure

  • Preparation

It is critical to prepare your working area before beginning the wax melting process. Working with wax can be messy, so you'll want to work on a clean, flat surface. Make sure you have all of the ingredients and tools you'll need in your workspace.

  • Weigh your Wax

With wax inside, place the pouring jar on your weighing scale and tare the weight.

  • Melt the Wax

After that, pour your measured wax into your heating pot. Fill a glass bowl halfway with water and place it inside the heating pot. Heat your wax to 185 degrees using a thermometer, being careful not to exceed 200 degrees. It will take 10 to 20 minutes for the wax to melt.

  • Add Dye

Allow the wax to cool to 185 degrees after it has melted. The next step is to add the appropriate amount of dye to produce the desired color intensity. Use a lot of dye if you want a darker shade, but only a pinch if you only want a light creamy tint. Stir the dye into the wax until it is evenly distributed.

  • Add Fragrance Oils

Remove the color and wax from the heat once they've blended. Toss in a few drops of your favorite essential oil. Gently stir the essential oils into the wax, making sure there are no bubbles. When you stir the mixture aggressively, air bubbles can form in the wax after it has cooled.

  • Pour into Moulds

Allow the wax to cool to roughly 175 degrees before carefully putting it into the clamshell molds. Distribute the wax melt evenly throughout the molds, giving enough space to fill in any sinkholes.

  • Enjoy your Wax Melts

We recommend curing your wax melts for five days. Now you may separate your clamshells, place a segment on your wax burner, and relax!
