I don’t particularly judge individuals using wax melt made from artificial scents, but I’m a huge fan of the natural homemade wax melt, and in today’s post, I’ll be sharing with you 10+ wax melt ideas that can be made with natural ingredients to give your home the much-needed holiday scent it needs.

How to make Wax Melts

Before I share with you the different ideas for an all-natural wax melt, first off, you need to be knowledgeable on how to make a wax melt.

Making a wax melt at home is quite easy, all you need to do is to melt a flaked soy wax while stirring in essential oils and herbs. After which you then pour the wax into heat-proof moulds. These procedures can be carried using two different methods; the microwave method and the double boiler method.

Microwave method for making the wax melt

This particular method is somewhat tricky due to the difficulty in controlling the temperature. However, some waxes are quite suitable for the microwave method, these wax usually come with the necessary instructions that will help you to avoid burning the wax. A little tip for you; when using the microwave method, always use a 20sec interval for melting the wax. You may feel the urge to leave the wax for a longer period due to the little changes you have noticed, however, try to resist that urge and stick to the 20sec interval, and you will see the gradual change of the wax from solid to liquid.

Double Boiler method for making Wax Melt

This is an easier method for making a wax melt. The Double boiler method makes it easy to control the temperature and achieve an evenly melted wax. Do not forget to stir the wax continually until the wax is fully melted.
