  • Fragrance oil (100g)
  • Weighing scales
  • Wax melting pot ( Bain Marie)
  • Stirring utensil
  • Mold
  • Safety equipment (gloves, glasses, etc.)

Step-by-Step Guide

  1. Choose your wax. You can use either wax flakes or pellets, but flakes tend to be easier to work with. The most popular types of wax for making wax melts are soy and paraffin wax.
  2. Measure your wax. Use weighing scales to measure out the desired amount of wax for your recipe. A general rule of thumb is to use 10% fragrance oil, so if you weigh 1kg of wax you will need 100g of fragrance oil
  3. Melt the wax. Fill a plastic jug with the wax and melt in the microwave or Fill your wax melting pot ( bain marie ) with water and heat on medium heat. Once the water is warm, place your wax flakes or pellets in the pot and stir until fully melted.
  4. Add fragrance oil. Once the wax is fully melted, carefully add your fragrance oil and stir well for a few minutes at least . Be sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions for the recommended amount of fragrance oil to add to your wax, usually this is 10% of the amount of wax so with 1kg of wax you would add 100g of fragrance oil.
  5. Pour the wax into the mold. Once the fragrance oil is fully incorporated, carefully pour the melted wax into your mold.
  6. Allow to cool and harden. Place the mold in a cool, dry place and allow the wax to cool and harden completely. This may take several hours or overnight.
  7. Remove from the mold. Once the wax is fully cooled and hardened, gently remove it from the mold.
  8. Enjoy your wax melts. Place a piece of your homemade wax melt in a wax warmer and enjoy the fragrance.
