First, you are going to create the flower embeds for your candle wax tarts recipe . So, you are going to need to melt down the wholesale candle wax with the pouring pot. Of course, you should use the pouring pot that is used to make your double boiler. You will need to weigh out 0.25 ounces of the Pillar of Bliss Wax. Then, you will be ready to add the candle wax to this pouring pot. You will need to stir your mixture as the wax melts down. This will both move the process along and prevent scorching.

Now, you are going to add a few finishing touches to this portion of the melted wax. So, you will need to add a very small amount of a yellow color dye block. You will need to stir to fully incorporate this candle colorant. This candle wax color will be used to create the yellow center of the embed flowers. Although we are adding a colorant, we are not going to add a scent to this small portion of the candle wax. Since this is a small portion of the wax melt, it won’t make much of a difference to leave it unscented.

Dreama Wax Tarts Recipe: Creating the Center of the FlowerDreama Wax Tarts Recipe: Creating the Center of the Flower

Next, you will need to use this yellow wax to create the center of your embed flowers. So, you will need to get your Daisies Embed Mold ready to use to create the flowers. Then, you will need to use a disposable pipette to fill the center of the embed flower mold. Just take some of the melted yellow wax in the pipette and add it to the center of the flowers. Also, you will want to be careful that you only fill the center part of the mold.

Dreama Wax Tarts Recipe: Melting the White Candle WaxDreama Wax Tarts Recipe: Melting the White Candle Wax

The second part that we will create is the white portion of the flower embed mold. This will be used to create the petals of the flower. You are going to add 4.5 ounces of the Pillar of Bliss Wax to the pouring pot in the double boiler. Once all of your wax has melted, you are going to add a small portion of a white color block to the wax. Be sure that you mix to fully incorporate the candle colorant.

Dreama Wax Tarts Recipe: Scent and Pour the Embed DaisiesDreama Wax Tarts Recipe: Scent and Pour the Embed Daisies

Now, you are going to add the fragrance oil and create your embed daisies. First, you are going to add 0.45 ounces of the fragrance oil to the melted wax. You will need to stir in the scented oil to fully incorporate the scent. Next, you are going to pour the white candle wax. Since the yellow wax should be set up at this point, you will be able to pour this white portion of the embed mold directly on top of the yellow wax. After all of your daisy cavities are filled, you are ready to move on to the next step.

Dreama Wax Tarts Recipe: Removing the Embed DaisiesDreama Wax Tarts Recipe: Removing the Embed Daisies

Once the wax for your daisies has completely set up, you can remove them from the mold. If the wax has not yet set up, you can set the mold aside for the moment. You can always come back to pop out the daisies later on in the candle making process. For now, you can move on to the next part of the process of making the best wax tarts!

Dreama Wax Tarts Recipe: Melt the Wax Melt BaseDreama Wax Tarts Recipe: Melt the Wax Melt Base

Next, you are going to prepare the base of the wax tarts. Again, you are going to need your pouring pot in the double boiler. So, weigh out and add 13.5 ounces of the Palm Pillar Wax to the pouring pot. As your wax melts, you will want to make sure that you stir occasionally.

Dreama Wax Tarts Recipe: Adding the Color and ScentDreama Wax Tarts Recipe: Adding the Color and Scent

Once your candle wax has completely melted, you will be ready to add the colorant to your wax! So, you are going to use a small amount of the bayberry color block to get a pretty green color. As the color dye block melts, you will want to stir in the candle colorant. After the melted wax has an even color throughout the wax, you will be ready to move on to the next step.

Dreama Wax Tarts Recipe: Adding the Color and ScentDreama Wax Tarts Recipe: Adding the Color and Scent

Once your wax has been melted and colored, you will be ready to add the scented oil. So, you are going to need to measure and incorporate 1.35 ounces of the Dreama Fragrance Oil. This fragrance begins with notes of oakmoss and lilies. The scent continues with middle notes of ylang ylang and jasmine. Further, the scent has a base of amber, musk, and sandalwood. So, this is a fantastic aroma to include in your wax melts. Again, you will need to stir to make sure that your scented wax includes the fragrance evenly.

Dreama Wax Tarts Recipe: Creating the Wax Tart BaseDreama Wax Tarts Recipe: Creating the Wax Tart Base

Now that your green candle wax is melted and ready to use, you are going to need to set up your portion cups. These portion cups will act as the wax tart mold for this recipe. In total, you will need about 9 individual portion cups to create your wax melt base. So, you will use up your freshly melted candle wax to fill each of these portion cups. You will want to make sure that you leave a little bit of room to add the daisy on top. We recommend that you pour slightly above 3/4 of the way full. Once you have filled each of your portion cups, you will need to move on to the next step before your candle wax sets up completely.

Dreama Wax Tarts Recipe: Adding the Wax Embed DaisiesDreama Wax Tarts Recipe: Adding the Wax Embed Daisies

Next, you are going to add your cute daisy embeds to the green wax tart base. You will want to make sure that you add your flower shaped wax melts to the top of the base before it entirely sets up. Of course, you will want to make sure that the wax base is set up enough that your flower won’t sink right through. However, the wax tart base will need to still have a soft surface. Once you reach this sweet spot, you will be ready to add each of your daisies to the soft candle wax.

Dreama Wax Tarts Recipe: Using Your Finished ProductDreama Wax Tarts Recipe: Using Your Finished Product

Finally, your wax tarts are finished and nearly ready for you to use! All you have left to do is wait for your wax tarts to set up completely and cure. After your wax tarts have hardened, you can wait to remove the wax tarts until after the curing process. The process of curing should only take about two or three days to make sure that the fragrance oil has settled. This will allow you to make wax tarts will be the best strongest wax melts that you can possibly make. If you want to ensure that the scent remains trapped, you can cover your wax tarts to help keep the scent trapped in the jar and allow it to really come alive.

Sunshine Soap and Candle Company: What is the Company's Mission?Sunshine Soap and Candle Company: What is Sunshine Soap and Candle Company?

Cory shared with us that the Sunshine Soap and Candle Company had come to be 2014.

Further, she has expressed the following as the core beliefs behind this company. “I have a passion for creating beautiful, usable products. I have always been drawn to more natural products, but also really wanted them to look beautiful as well as perform very well. I have always wanted people to smile, feel happy and a bit pampered when
they use my handmade products. The name of my company really epitomizes my idea of happiness. As a native Californian, I am a lover of the beach and the sun. These things make me happy and are reflected in my logo to represent the feelings I wanted people to have when using my products. Today, we carry an array of products you can feel good about like body butters, lotions, night cream, soap, candles and more.”

Sunshine Soap and Candle Company: How Did This Business Start?

Today Sunshine Soap and Candle Company sells all kinds of products! This includes homemade candles and soap made from scratch. While this company has lots of wonderfully created recipes now, this endeavor began with Cory’s love for candles and an interest in making them at home!

According to Cory herself, ” A lot of people may not know that that Sunshine Soap and Candle Company started out in 2001 as a candle company only. I was a new college grad and newly married. I was working full time at a local insurance company and needed some
creative outlets. I was really into burning candles and thought I could make them.
That is when I started getting into the art of making candles. Back then, there was
no YouTube, so I did all my research and studying from books and hands on trial
and error. I became obsessed with making the perfect burning candle! Once I got
it down “Twilight Inspirations” was born and I started selling my candle creations.
I LOVED creating products from scratch and customizing items.”

Of course, this interest in candle making has grown over time and has led to even more skill for the craft through experience and experimentation. Plus, we all know that trying out a new craft is fun and can lead to another beloved hobby. In the case of Cory’s company, trying something new led to expanding her company to add even more lovely products!

Cory has shared that, “Over the years my candle making style evolved with changing styles and times. Fast forward to 2013 and three kids later! I became fascinated with soap
making after attending several local markets. I decided to give it a try. As soon as
I tried it, I knew I needed to expand my product line to include soaps. I loved it so
much I couldn’t believe I hadn’t tried it before! I immersed myself in research and
studying until I came up with soap I could actually feel great about selling.”

How Do I Make Wax MeltsHow Do I Make Wax Melts

If you have been asking, “How Do I Make Wax Melts?”, then you are in the right place! Whether you are an experienced candle maker expanding into wax melts or a beginning crafter looking to make their own wax tarts, you can find everything you need to get started right here at Natures Garden. You can use this blog to figure out the ingredients that you will need. Then, head over to our site to find everything you need at a push of a button. Plus, there are even recipes for different wax melt ideas that provide you with step-by-step instructions for creating wax tarts. If you find you need a bit more guidance, then you can call our HUG line as well. We are here to help make this process both fun and easy!

How Do I Make Wax Melts: Candle Making SuppliesHow Do I Make Wax Melts: Candle Making Supplies

Just like with candle making, there is some equipment that you are going to need to get started. First, you will need a pouring pot to melt your wax. You will also need a pot filled with a few inches of water and a stove top. Your pouring pot will then be placed into the pot of warm water. Also, you will need a thermometer because you will need to add the fragrance oil at a certain temperature and you need to make sure the wax isn’t too hot when you pour.

Also, you will need to make sure you have a least have your basic supplies, which are candle wax, a scented oil, and packaging supplies. While there are many choices and options for customizing your wax melts, these two key ingredients are all you need to create your scented wax tarts. Also, you need to make sure that you have a plan for packaging your wax melts. There are many options, like clamshells, molds, and much more, and you just need one method to ensure that you are able to store your finished wax melts for later use.

How Do I Make Wax Melts: Waxes for Making Wax TartsHow Do I Make Wax Melts: Waxes for Making Wax Tarts

There are many different types of waxes available from Natures Garden. We recommend using a pillar wax for your melts if you are putting them into a mold. However, there are still quite a few that are great when it comes to making a wax melt using a container wax. Choosing the type of wax is very important to the quality of your scented wax melts. So, you may want to learn a bit about your options before choosing a wax.

How Do I Make Wax Melts: Beeswax Wax MeltsHow Do I Make Wax Melts: Beeswax Wax Melts

Beeswax is a great choice for making wax tarts. It is perfect for creating hard wax tarts that are easy to package and use. You can either scent this wax on its own or add about 5-10% to a paraffin wax. Adding beeswax to paraffin wax will increase the integrity of the wax melt, which will make it easy to package and then use later. Also, adding some beeswax to your recipe will improve the color and your burn time of your wax tart.

How Do I Make Wax Melts: Wow Wax Wax TartsHow Do I Make Wax Melts: Wow Wax Wax Tarts

Speaking of paraffin wax, WOW Wax is a paraffin blend that is soft, creamy and has an excellent scent throw. While you may want to use this wax to make wax tarts, it could be difficult to make tarts. When you go to remove a wax melt from your clamshell or mold, the wax is likely to stick the container. This will ruin the shape and lead to a mess. So, this is when the beeswax comes in handy! Adding a portion of stearic acid or beeswax will make the wax harder and easier to use for making wax tarts. Alternatively, you could package your soft wax melts into portion cups. This will make it easier to transfer the wax to the warmer and cut down on some of that mess.

How Do I Make Wax Melts: Can I Use Soy Wax for Wax Melts?How Do I Make Wax Melts: Can I Use Soy Wax for Wax Melts?

While you can use soy wax to create your homemade wax melts, a softer wax like soy wax may be harder to remove from a mold or clamshell container. Similarly, Joy Wax is a candle wax that blends soy with other ingredients to enhance the quality. So, Joy Wax will be a bit soft, as well. However, there are ways that you can effectively use this wax. Again, you could use individually portioned containers and just squeeze the wax into your warmer. Also, you can use Stearic Acid to harden your wax tarts. 

How Do I Make Wax Melts: Best Wax for Clamshell TartsHow Do I Make Wax Melts: Best Wax for Clamshell Tarts

One of the best waxes for making wax tarts is our Pillar of Bliss Wax, as it is a strong wax made to create pillar candles. So, it will be sure to maintain its shape in the packages. We have made our basic Candle Wax Tarts Recipe with this wax because it is one of the easiest for clamshell wax melts. Also, we have done a few other recipes, like the Pumpkin Delight Chamshell Tarts and the Candy Corn Clamshell Tarts Recipe, with this candle wax.

How Do I Make Wax Melts: How do I Scent Wax Tarts?

Scented oils are an important part of creating your own wax tarts. Your fragrance oil warmers won’t be able to do much without a great scent. Plus, you need to make sure that your scented oil is added correctly or it may not mix properly with the candle wax. So, you need to be able to add your fragrance oils at the right temperatures.

How Do I Make Wax Melts: What Temperature Do I Add My Fragrance Oil?How Do I Make Wax Melts: What Temperature Do I Add My Fragrance Oil?

One crucial thing that you need to remember with fragrance oils is that they should be added to the wax at the correct temperature. This can be found on the page for the individual candle wax. Each candle wax will be different. So, for the best results follow the instructions for that particular candle wax.  Each wax has been tested to find the temperature that will give you the best results using that particular candle wax.

How Do I Make Wax Melts: How to Scent Candles with SpicesHow Do I Make Wax Melts: How to Scent Candles with Spices

Not only are fragrance oils great for scenting your home, but there are some fragrance herbs that will do make you wax melts look amazing! Our Rustic Wax Melts Recipe was created with Cloves, Juniper Berries, Cinnamon, and Orange Peel that perfectly compliment the Christmas Wassail Fragrance Oil. It has such a wonderful spicy aroma that will fill up your whole house. If you want to find more herbs to try in your wax melts, then check out the Herbs & Spices page.

Also, you need to make sure that you have an idea for packaging your wax melts. Otherwise, your tarts may set up before you are able to pour. Depending on the type of wax tart you are making, there are many different options. Here are a few of the most common options.

How Do I Make Wax Melts: Clamshell Packaging for Wax MeltsHow Do I Make Wax Melts: Clamshell Packaging for Wax Melts

First, we have clamshell wax tarts containers These are most often used for packaging because they are convenient to make and use. Plus, the divider allows you to easily create six individual wax melts in one container! If you want to use this method of packaging, Natures Garden has some high quality clamshell containers.

How Do I Make Wax Melts: Portion CupsHow Do I Make Wax Melts: Portion Cups

Another good option for wax melts is portion cups. These are especially useful for soft waxes, like container waxes. Many candle makers choose to use the same candle wax in their tarts that they use in their container candles. This way they do not have to purchase two different types of candle wax.  When using portion cups there will be less struggle trying to get the wax out of the container. Just squeeze the container and pop the wax into your wax warmer and don’t worry about a mess. This could also be a good container for transporting wax embeds of various shapes. For example, a few retro flower wax tarts could fit in a container for storage.

How Do I Make Wax Melts: Candle MoldsHow Do I Make Wax Melts: Candle Molds

Another perfect way to create your wax melts is to use silicone candle molds wholesale. This allows you to make all kinds of fun shapes and designs. We used this recipe to create our scrumptious Pumpkin Cheesecake Wax Melts Recipe, which is perfect for creating some little cupcake wax melts, too.

One fun room scenting idea is the Shimmer Gel Potpourri Recipe. This wax burner potpourri uses a soft candle wax and uses an oil to create a gel consistency. Then, the recipe uses fragrance, mica. and bottles to finish off this great recipe. Now you can simply squeeze out some of this potpourri into your wax warmer and cut out all the worry about using soft soy wax.

All you need to do is some simple math that we will walk you through! First, weigh the amount of candle wax you are using. Then, multiply this amount by 0.10, which is 10% to determine the amount of fragrance oil that you can use.

  • Formula: Candle Wax Weight X Fragrance Percentage = Amount of Fragrance That Can Be Added
  • Example: 20 (ounces of candle wax) X 0.10 = 2 ounces of fragrance oil So, since your candle wax is in ounces, the fragrance amount that can be added to the candle wax will also be in ounces.
