Grapefruit Candle Wax Tarts Recipe

Skip the store bought wax tarts and make your own, using your favorite essential oils. It’s an easy DIY project and you can double the batch for a larger quantity. For these tarts, we used grapefruit essential oil. The citrus scent makes the house smell wonderful! These homemade wax tarts make a great gift for Valentine’s Day or any occasion when paired with a wax warmer. If you are in Arizona, California or Utah, head to an As You Wish location to paint your own wax warmer. 


1 cup soy wax
1 tbsp coconut oil
20-30 drops grapefruit essential oil
silicon mold
microwavable bowl
wax warmer
