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.
Step 1: Head into an As You Wish studio to paint a wax warmer! Check the calendar for special deals.
Step 2: Place 1 cup soy wax and 1 tablespoon coconut oil in a microwavable bowl. Microwave for 1 minute increments, stirring in between, until everything is melted.
Step 3: Mix in 20-30 drops of grapefruit essential oil to the wax mixture.
Step 4: Pour the wax mixture into a silicon mold and allow to harden overnight. Once they harden, pop them out of the mold.
Step 5: Place a tea light candle inside of the wax warmer. Put the wax tarts in the warmer dish. Enjoy the grapefruit scent as the candle melts the wax tart!
