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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Wax Melts Recipe Wax Melts Recipe

This Wax Melts Recipe by Natures Garden is a simple and adorable way to create wax melts! We all know that wax melts are a pretty convenient way to scent a home without using candles. While candles are always great, sometimes it is much easier to simply add a wax melt to your warmer and just let the fragrance oil fill your home. But, many of these wax melts are plain, boring cubes. While plain wax melts still can carry some amazing scents for your home, they aren’t much to look at. Sometimes you just need something cute and pretty to give yourself a break. So, we created these strawberries and cream cookie shaped wax melts. They are easy to create and will make using a wax melter even more fun than before!

Wax Melts Recipe Ingredients Available At Natures Garden

Joy Wax
Pillar of Bliss Wax
Color Block – Red
Strawberries and Cream Fragrance Oil
Pouring Pot
Thermometer

Wax Melts Recipe Other Equipment and Supplies You Will Need

Stove Top
Scale
Mixing Spoons
A Medium Sized Pot (to create a double boiler)

Wax Melts Recipe Weights and Amounts of Ingredients

90 grams Joy Wax
90 grams Pillar of Bliss Wax
A Small Amount of a Red Color Block
18 grams of the Strawberries and Cream Fragrance Oil

Wax Melts Recipe Prepare Your Work Area

Before you begin you will want to make a few preparations to ensure that your process is as problem free as possible. When you are creating anything, you will want to make sure that the area you are working in is safe for both yourself and your product. This means you should make sure that everything other than your ingredients and supplies have been cleaned up. This will make sure that there is nothing in your work space that could fall over or hinder your crafting in any way.

Also, you will want to sanitize all of the supplies that you need for this craft. No one wants dirt and filth in their candle wax, so it is a great idea to make sure that nothing will be able to get into your wax. Not only do you need to clean your countertop, pouring pot, and bowls, but you will need to clean the molds, spoons, and thermometer, too. This will prevent anything from sticking to a utensil as you work. It could be very easy to not notice a speck of dirt on your spatula until it is swimming in your melted wax, which can be a pain to remove. Plus, some may even sneak by and make it into your final product. So, just get cleaned up before you begin working!

Wax Melts Recipe Creating the Double Boiler

Additionally, you will want to know how to create a double boiler for this recipe. Knowing how to do this is important because it will help to prevent your ingredients from burning. When you don’t use this method, your wax can get too hot too quickly and could scorch before you even notice. However, this method uses boiling water to keep the heat at a level where the wax will melt and not get too hot.

So, you will be using a pouring pot and a regular pot for creating this device. Take the pouring pot and make sure that it will fit comfortably inside the other pot with room on either side. Now, remove your pouring pot and add about an inch of water to the regular pot. You will need to place your pouring pot into the water. Later, you will add heat to get the pot of water. Then, you will add your container candle wax to your pouring pot. Finally, your pouring pot will be placed into the pan containing the water. You may add or pour out water to get the right level for your specific pot size, just make sure that that water is touching the bottom of the pouring pot.

Wax Melts Recipe Creating the Vanilla Wafers Portion

First, we will be creating the vanilla wafer cookies portion of this recipe. This portion will end up looking like a bunch of pink wafer cookies and will be used to create the cookie sandwich later on. After, you will be setting these pink, wax wafers aside as you make the filling to finish off your strawberries and cream cookie wax melts.

Wax Melts Recipe Melting the Pillar of Bliss WaxWax Melts Recipe Melting the Pillar of Bliss Wax

Now, you will be using the Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax for your vanilla wafers. So, weigh out 90 grams of the Pillar of Bliss Wax and transfer it into your pouring pot. Set the wax filled pouring pot back into the regular pot of water. Turn on your stove top and get your water to start boiling. Melt the wax and bring the temperature to 195 degrees. As you are heating make sure to occasionally stir the wax to further prevent burning. After all the wax has melted you can move on to the next step.

Wax Melts Recipe Adding Color to the Pillar of Bliss Candle WaxWax Melts Recipe Adding Color to the Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax

Next, you are going to add the color to the melted wax. You will want to add the candle colorant at 195 degrees to ensure it will mix full into the wax. So, cut off a tiny piece of your color block and add it to the melted wax. Make sure not to start off with too much as you will not be able to remove the color once it has melted and been fully incorporated. Once you have added the red color block, stir to fully disperse the candle colorant. Further, you will want to test the color of your wax before you move on. You can easily test the wax color to see if it’s going to be right before it all sets up. So, take a spoon and scoop up a tiny bit of the colored wax. Now, add a drip of the wax to a white paper plate, napkin, or another white disposable object. It shouldn’t take long to dry, but once it does you will be able to see the color your wax will be after it dries. After, you can add more and retest if you feel like the color you have is not quite right.

Next, you are going to add fragrance to the wax and pour it into your molds. First, you are going add the fragrance oil to your melted wax. Now, you can turn off your stove top and allow the wax temperature to drop to 180 degrees. Then, weigh out 9 grams of the Strawberries and Cream Fragrance Oil and add it to the pink colored wax. Make sure to mix well to incorporate the scent evenly.  Second, you will be pouring the wax into your molds. You will want to pour the wax around 165 degrees. Finally, allow the cookie portion of your melt to setup.

Now, are going to finish up the first portion of your craft. So, once all of your wax wafers to fully set up remove all of the wafers from the vanilla wafer mold. After all of your wafers are removed from the mold you will want to set these pink wafers aside until it is time to assemble the final cookie sandwich wax melts.

Wax Melts Recipe Creating the Whipped Filling Portion

Next, we will be creating the filling portion of your wax melt cookie. This wax will be whipped and used to fill the center of the cookie. So, this part will be sandwiched between two of the pink vanilla wafers we have already created. After this portion is complete it will be time to assemble the wax melt cookie.

Wax Melts Recipe Melting the Joy Wax for the FillingWax Melts Recipe Melting the Joy Wax for the Filling

First, you are going to be melting the Joy Wax. You are going to want to have your pouring pot completely cleaned out. Otherwise, your filling will have a pink hue, which is not what we want. Then, add 90 grams of your Joy Candle Wax to the cleaned pouring pot. Melt this the same way that you melted the other wax for the wafers, which means you will need to use a double boiler. Once the wax has melted you will be adding 9 grams of the Strawberries and Cream Fragrance Oil. However, you will not be adding any color blocks or pigments to this portion.

Wax Melts Recipe Whip the Candle WaxWax Melts Recipe Whip the Candle Wax

Next, you are going to be whipping the Joy Wax. So, transfer your uncolored wax to a small mixing bowl. While you can keep the wax in the pouring pot, it will be easier for you to whip the wax in a shallow bowl. In addition, it will cool a bit faster. As the Joy Wax is beginning to get thicker you will want to whip the wax with a spoon or rubber spatula. Keep whipping until the wax reaches a consistency of whipped cream. After, you are ready for the next step.

Wax Melts Recipe Add the Filling to the WafersWax Melts Recipe Add the Filling to the Wafers

Finally, you are going to be assembling the cookie wax melts. So, retrieve your pink vanilla wafers and lay them in your work space. Take six of these pink wafers and lay them with their flat side facing up. These will be the bottoms of your strawberries and cream cookie shaped wax melts and the other six wafers will be the tops of the cookie.

Now, you will be adding the filling and will need to work quickly to make sure the top wafer cookie sticks to the wax filling. So, take a scoop of the wax and add it to one of your six bottom cookies. Quickly, take a top cookie and firmly place this on top of the filling you just added. Now, you have one completed wax tart cookie! You will need to repeat this filling process for your five other wax cookies. After, you will need to let the six cookie sandwiches set up completely, but for the most part, your project is complete!

Wax Melts Recipe Finishing Up and Using the Wax Melt Cookies

Now, you are almost ready to use your wax melts! All you will need to do now is to wait a few days for your wax melts to cure completely. Just like candles, the wax will need to rest a few days to be able to perform its best. Waiting a few days will provide you with a better scent when you add them to your wax tart warmers. Also, be sure to keep them covered while they are curing. While it may drive you crazy to have to wait for these little cuties, it will all be worth it in the end! 

After, you are finally ready to use your wax melts! Not only are these little cookies super cute, but they are super easy to use, too. Simply take one of your strawberries and cream cookie wax melts and add it to your wax tart warmer. In no time at all, you will be surrounded by the sweet scent of our lovely Strawberries and Cream Fragrance Oil. We hope that you will enjoy this wax melts recipe!
