Wax Melts

Yesterday I made wax melts in several new  fragrances.
If I have a little bit left over after pouring,
I save it for my personal stash.
I’m pretty sure I’ll never run out.
I like using soy because it’s natural, clean, and easy to clean up.

Back to making the wax melts.
Once I start making them,
it’s hard to know where to draw the line.
I just want to keep going, making more and more fragrances.
Ah, the life of a fragrance addict.
Yesterday I stopped after the 11th fragrance.

Want to see the lineup?
Apple Pie
Bamboo Teak
Café Latte
Honey Almond
Jasmine Vanilla
Lemon Poundcake
Mmm Mmm Mocha
Oatmeal, Milk and Honey
Tobacco Caramel
Twilight Woods

I also tested different ways to package the wax melts.
I typically use waffle blocks.
I like them because they are different than what I usually see.
The waffle blocks are scored into six sections.
The sections are easy to break apart.
Instead of six cubes, the block is flatter.
It has a waffle look to it.
They are convenient to use.
They hold two ounces of wax by weight.
They work especially well for creating your own fragrance blends.
Two or three will fit in a plug-in type warmer.
Just think of the fragrance combinations you can create!

I packaged some of the melts in one ounce tubs.
The tub holds 2 ounces of water by volume.
But it only holds about 1.5 ounces of wax by weight.
I filled them with one ounce of wax to make them easy to use.
The wax can be popped out right into your wax warmer.

I also made some melts in the traditional cube type packaging.
This is the form that I see most often.
It has six cubes per pack that break apart
(not quite as easily as the waffles in my opinion).
The cube package holds a total of 3 ounces of wax.

The back three are waffles
The front one is the cube packaging

What type of packaging do you like?
What do you think of the fragrances?
Is there one in this lineup that sounds good to you?
I love them all.
Thanks for reading!
