How to make your own beautifully scented wax melts

Wax smelters are pieces of scented wax, without a wick, that melt in a heater to release a fragrance. They are an excellent way to try different scents without having to invest in several types of candles. The wax melts last longer than a standard candle and is highly customizable. Unlike candles, the wax does not evaporate; only the smell dissipates. Once you can no longer smell the fragrance, you can reuse it to make the wax melt. They are very easy to make with only two items! If you need inspiration for fragrance combinations, check out our "The total guide to mix essential oils"

An easy way to estimate is to fill the mold with water, then pour the water into a measuring cup to check the volume. Double that volume to get the amount of flakes of soy wax needed. For example, my mold contained about 1/2 cup of water, so I melted a cup of soy flakes. I had a bit of wax left over because the liquid in front of the solids does not completely match the measurement, but it gives you a good playing field. Heat the wax in a double boiler until it melts.
