When I started using essential oils in March of 2016, I had intentions to rid my home of as many toxic chemicals as possible, including paraffin wax found in many candles. Although I enjoy diffusing essential oils in my home to fill the air with wonderful scents, during winter I like the comfort of burning candles or wax warmers. I decided to try making some DIY All-Natural Wax Melts and ended up loving them! I created this tutorial to show you how easy all-natural wax melts are to DIY for yourself or to give as a cute gift to others. These are so simple and cheap to make and will keep the chemicals out of your home!

WHERE TO BUY ESSENTIAL OILS
I only use Young Living essential oils because the quality and their method of distilling produce the best essential oils available on the market today. In fact, Young Living has a Seed to Seal guarantee that surpasses any other oil company’s guarantee of the quality and purity of their oils. Now, I don’t know about you, but I’d rather pay a little more guaranteed quality oils than paying a little less for cheap oils that may or may not provide the same benefit.
Also, Do Not Buy Young Living Essential Oils from Amazon, Ebay or other third-party sites.
The reason I only buy oils directly from Young Living is the same reason I wouldn’t buy a designer handbag from the back of a van on a street corner. It’s probably not the real thing or has been tampered with in some way. You wouldn’t want to apply or ingest an “oil” that someone put something strange in or receive a bottle of “water” instead of oil (trust me, this happens all the time!). Please don’t be the one that gets scammed by buying essential oils anywhere other than Young Living!
Now that that’s out of the way, here are few more facts & benefits that Young Living offers:
- YL offers many membership benefits, including monthly essential oils, rewards programs to earn FREE product
- Young Living is also the only essential oil company that is approved by the FDA with a special line of Vitality oils and products
- YL has 22+ years of experience and is the only oil company that owns their own farms

- 4 tbsp. Beeswax (I use this one and love it!)

- 20-30 drops of Essential Oils (I only use these)
- Glass jar or Double Boiler
- Soap mold or silicone baking mold (I used this one)
- Cellophane bags
1. Gather the supplies.
2. Using a double boiler, melt the coconut oil and beeswax. I use a microwave and an old mason jar (I save glass jars from salsa, pickles, etc. to use for my essential oils DIYs). I melted mine in the microwave for 3 minutes while stopping every 30 seconds to stir. Be careful when removing the glass from the microwave because it will be hot!
3. Add desired essential oils (see above for scent ideas).
4. Pour into mold and let solidify. You can stick them in your fridge for an hour or let it sit for a few hours to harden.
5. Place wax molds into a glass jar or cellophane bags and attach printable labels. Melt in your wax warmer and enjoy!
My wax warmer is this one and is electric. If you decide to use a wax warmer that requires candles, be sure to use soy or beeswax candles to eliminate harmful chemicals!
For your convenience, I created a printable label where you can fill in the blank for the scent. The other labels include one of each:
- Pumpkin Pie
- Christmas Cookies
- Rise & Shine
- Tranquil Escape
- Island Breeze
