DIY Candle Wax Melts

I love wax melts so much and have a hoard of them. They literally have their own drawer. However, I love that I can make my own now. 

They’re actually super easy and not nearly has hard as I thought they would be. This post  contains affiliate links.

Supplies Needed To Make Wax Melts:

You need two things for these DIY Wax Melts are:

Beeswax is much better for the environment than traditional paraffin. 

I always buy these pure white beeswax pellets because they’re easy to measure out and don’t have a yellow tint.

For the oil, I chose Lemon Essential Oil because it’s my all time favorite! The citrus smell makes me happy and I feel like this smell is a total mood booster. I’ve used Lemon oil in all sorts of fun DIY’s like shaving cream, and lip balm.

How To Make These Homemade Wax Melts: 

Step 1

So, use a double broiler or create your own with a bit of water in a small pot and a glass bowl on top.

Step 2

Scoop out 1/3 cup of beeswax pellets into the bowl and slowly melt it.

Step 3

As soon as it’s melted, take it off the burner and quickly add in 15-20 drops of essential oil and mix it with a fork.

Step 4

You’ll have to pour it really quickly into your mold because beeswax hardens fast. If you see that it is hardening too fast, just put it back on top of the still hot water for a second to warm it again.

Step 5

Then, you can use an old wax melts container to fill with your wax.

Step 6

Let it sit until it’s hard enough you can move it without spilling, and then pop it in the freezer for about 5 minutes. Voila!
