How is Wax Melts made?

To make the best wax melts, follow this step by step guide:

Step 1: start by gathering all the items that you need for this process. These should include the wax, fragrance, color, mould, melting container and some paper towels.

Step 2: Next, cover your working area with a paper towel to avoid spills then proceed to cut the wax (if in blocks) to smaller pieces for quick and easy melting.

Step 3: melt the wax in a double boiler. If you don’t have the boiler, take a slightly bigger pan and fill it halfway with water. Place this pan on heat and let it boil. Take another pan, a smaller one, and put the wax in it then place it into the pan with boiling water.

Step 4: allow the wax to heat to 175- 185 oz. Use a thermometer to monitor the temperature.

Step 5: once you achieve the above temperature, add in the right amounts of your chosen fragrance and color, and then stir gently.

Step 6: allow the mixture to heat further as you get your mould/s ready

Step 7: once ready, remove the mixture from heat and pour gently into the mold/s. As you do this, be careful not to burn yourself or cause spills as the wax will still be hot and molten.

Also, do not pour too quickly; least the wax will overflow and cause a mess.

Fill the mould to the top if you’re looking to make thick tarts. For thinner tarts, fill the mould halfway.

Once done, leave everything to cool down and harden in readiness for packaging.

That’s it!
