How to use wax melts – My Christmas Crate

How to use wax melts without a warmer....

There's nothing as wonderful as the scent of Christmas filling your home.  By now you know we love to add scented wax melts to our Christmas subscription box! Many already own a wax warmer and some do not... but don't fret! We've got some ingenious hacks to enjoy those melts (sans the burner) so read on....

A wax melt is a cube of wax made from soy, paraffin or beeswax. The wax is melted down and mixed with fragrance or essential oils in a ration of about 10% fragrance to wax.  The wax melt is then melted on a warmer, which releases the fragrance. Wax melts come in a variety of of different styles, colors and scents (the Christmas scents are our favorites of course)! 

Wax melts have many different name including: 

Melts, Tarts, Clamshells, Snapbars and Hearts. 


Stove method: Warm a bit of water in a medium sized pot and then place a smaller pot within the water and place your wax in the smaller pan. This is a great way to enjoy the aroma without a burner or warmer.

Microwave method: Make your own burner by placing your wax beads, cubes into a microwave safe bowl and heat in the microwave for 10 seconds (more or less depending on your microwave strength). Once it's done give your wax a stir and heat for another 10 seconds. Repeat this process until your wax has melted to a honey like consistency. 

Oven method: Use a old pan or grab one of the cheap from your local Dollar Store and place wax cubes in the pan, set your oven on a low temp until wax is melted then turn off the oven.  The aroma will quickly fill your home. Here's the direct link to the warmer used in our photo!
