Wax melts for your electric or candle powered wax burner.


  • 1 cup beeswax pastilles
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 4050 drops essential oil


  1. Set up a double boiler with a glass measuring cup or glass bowl, a sauce pan, and a few jar rings. Set the double boiler up over medium low heat, and bring the water in the double boiler up to a simmer. Don’t let the double boiler go over a simmer.
  2. Measure and pour the beeswax into the cup, and add the coconut oil. Let melt, and stir as it is melting. If you wish to add color to your homemade wax melts, now would be the time to add some candle dye, or shimmer.
  3. While the mixture is melting, find your wax molds. Silicone molds, like the small ones for chocolates, candy, or ice cubes work well. If you’re using non-silicon molds, spray them with a silica mold spray to aid the release of the wax melt.
  4. When the wax and oil is combined and melted together, add your favorite essential oils, or essential oils blend. I recommend 40-50 drops to keep the scent strong over all the wax melts. You may wish to use fewer drops if using a strong oil like peppermint, and a few more drops if using a softer scent like lavender. You could even add in whole or ground herbs like cinnamon, if you prefer to avoid essential oils.
  5. Remove the melted melt mixture from the double boiler saucepan, and carefully pour the mixture into your prepared molds.
  6. Set the molds on a flat surface to cool. Pop out your diy wax melts once cool.
  7. Package the melts up in pretty cellophane bags, or a glass jar to keep them sealed. Use 1-3 melts in your wax warmer as needed for scent and atmosphere. Wax melts can make a great gift.
