Pumpkin Cheesecake Wax Melts Recipe: The Chocolate Pie Crust Layer

Pumpkin Cheesecake Wax Melts Recipe Pouring the BaseWe will begin by using Natures Garden’s Pillar of Bliss Wax. The nice thing about pillar waxes is that, since they are harder waxes, they will pop right out of your mold. Anytime you are using a mold, I would recommend using a pillar wax.

The bottom layer of this wax melts recipe will resemble a chocolate pie crust. In this section, I will walk you through the creation of this layer. It will be about 1/3 of your base. So, keep in mind, you will not be filling the mold completely with this layer. You will need two of the silicone mini cupcake molds ready. This recipe will create 16 pumpkin wax melts. Begin by melting your Pillar of Bliss Wax using the double boiler method. You will need to melt 3 ounces of pillar wax.

Once melted, you will need to add color. Since you only need a small amount, we suggest using two toothpicks. Get out both your black liquid candle colorant and brown candle dye. Now, dip one toothpick in the brown candle dye. Then, dip the toothpick in the wax. Now, using the second toothpick, do the same with the black candle colorant. Mix well to incorporate the color.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Wax Melts Recipe Pie Crust LayerNext, add 0.3 ounces of Pumpkin Cheesecake Fragrance Oil. Stir to blend the fragrance oil. Finally, you can now pour the melted wax in 16 of the mini muffin mold cavities. Remember, you will want to fill each of these cavities 1/3 of the way full. Allow this layer to set up completely.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Wax Melts Recipe: The Pumpkin Cheesecake Layer

When creating the pumpkin cheesecake layer, we will again, be working with Pillar of Bliss Wax. This time you will need to melt 6 ounces of Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax. Again, weigh out the wax using a scale. Then, use the double boiler to melt it.

Once melted, add your colorant. You will again want to use toothpicks to add just a small amount of colorant. This time you will need three toothpicks. Use the toothpicks to add yellow candle dye, brown liquid candle colorant, and orange candle colorant. Mix well.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Wax Melts Recipe Cheesecake LayerNow, use your scale to add 0.6 ounces of Pumpkin Cheesecake Fragrance Oil. Mix well to incorporate the pumpkin scent. Finally, pour the wax into each cavity of the mold. You will fill the remaining 2/3 of the silicone mold. Allow this layer to set up.  Lastly, once they have completely hardened, remove the bases from the molds.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Wax Melts Recipe: The Whipped Frosting Layer

When creating the whipped frosting, we will be using Joy Wax. Joy Wax, since it is a container wax, is softer making it ideal for our whipped topping. You will prepare the wax as you normally would, in a double boiler, adding your fragrance around 170 degrees. Add 0.9 ounces of Pumpkin Cheesecake Fragrance Oil to the Joy Wax. Stir the cheesecake fragrance oil into the wax completely. Now, you will want to wait for the wax set up a bit before you begin whipping it. Start whipping the wax when it has a slushy consistency. You can use a stainless steel spoon to whip the wax. You want to stir the wax until it has a whipped cream consistency.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Wax Melts Recipe Whipped LayerNow, begin topping each base.  You will need to use your spoon to scoop a small amount of wax onto each base.  You want it to look like frosting.  Use the spoon to create peaks in the Joy wax.  Lastly, get out the pumpkin pie spice powder.  Sprinkle a small amount of the pumpkin powder on each melt.

Once you have allowed that wax tarts to cure, they are ready to use.  Simply place one melt in your tart burner and enjoy the creamy pumpkin cheesecake aroma!  Have you created this wax melt recipe at home?  Or, maybe another product you would like to share?  We would love to see what you have come up with.  Post your pics on Natures Garden’s Facebook page or on Instagram, tagging us @ngscent.
