HOW TO MAKE SOY WAX MELTS

 

Scroll down to see our step-by-step tutorial on how to make soy wax melts


MATERIALS


STEP 1: PREPARING THE WAX

Weigh out the appropriate amount of wax you need for your moulds. EROMA 6 cavity clamshell moulds require approximately 74 grams of wax and fragrance combined. For an 8% fragrance load, use 68 grams of wax per clamshell mould | 6 grams of fragrance oil.

These measurements can then be simply scaled up for larger quantities. For example, if you were to pour 5 clamshell moulds at once, you would melt 340 grams of wax | 30 grams of fragrance.

STEP 2: MELTING THE WAX AND ADDING COLOUR

Melt the wax to its recommended melt temperature as per the manufacturer's instructions. We recommend a double boiler setting to heat the wax. You can also add in your candle colour if desired. Click here for information on which colours to use and how much.

STEP 3: ADDING FRAGRANCE

Add your pre-measured fragrance oil (8% loading) to your melted wax and mix thoroughly.


STEP 4: POUR

Carefully pour the wax mixture into clamshell moulds. Be sure to leave around 5mm of gap at the top so that you can easily close the lid of the mould once the wax has set.

STEP 5: CURE

Allow to set in a cool, dark environment for at least 24 hours.

STEP 6: FINISHING OFF

Either leave the melts in the mould for storage and display (recommended) or you can carefully remove your melts from the mould and house them in new packaging.

Moulds can be cleaned with a paper towel and a small amount rubbing alcohol for future use!
