How to Make Scented Wax Melts With Essential Oils

If you love the smell of candles but hate the hassle of actually burning them, we’ve got the perfect solution: scented wax melts!

Wax melts are little scented disks that you can place in a wax melter which will scent your home with zero fire risk. They’re also a lot cheaper than candles, so you can stock up on all your favorite scents without breaking the bank. And if you’re feeling really ambitious, you can even make your own! This Liquid Luck Wax Tart recipe is just for you. In no time at all, you’ll have beautiful, homemade scented wax melts that will make your whole house smell amazing.

So next time you’re in the mood for some cozy ambiance, reach for a wax melt instead of a candle. You won’t be sorry!

What I Love About These Scented Wax Melts

I love experimenting with blends to use, I never get tired of it. Every time I create a new blend of essential oils, I get so excited to see how it’ll turn out. I love that these wax melts are so easy to customize with the essential oils that you put in the recipe, so it’s the perfect recipe to test out all of my new blends!

What’s in This Recipe?

Solid Coconut Oil

This top-quality coconut oil is a natural, eco-friendly product. It is perfect to use in wax melts because it melts quickly and evenly so you can enjoy the benefits of aromatherapy without any of the synthetic ingredients.
