Autumn Breeze Wax Melt Recipe

 

Red, orange, and yellow leaf shaped wax melts in a bowl

When you think of autumn, what comes to mind? Is it the colorful masterpiece of the treescape, or the sound of crunching leaves? Possibly the taste of a pumpkin spice latte or warm mulled cider? For me, it’s the aromas whirling through the air that herald the coming of fall.

As indoor time increases, I begin to yearn for aromatherapy blends to bring in the elements of fall as I tackle projects like cleaning out my pantry or refreshing my spices in preparation for the holidays. Even more than candles and diffuser blends, though, I love to craft and use homemade wax melts. I am enchanted by the ambiance that my wax melter emanates, the gentleness of the aroma emitted, and the fun wax shapes and colors that I can pour.

Crafted with layers of aromas that many of us enjoy during the fall, this autumn breeze blend brings aromatic elements of the damp earth, fresh spices, and uplifting top notes to balance and brighten.


Autumn Breeze Wax Melt Recipe

Ingredients

Directions Without Color

  1. Add beeswax and sunflower oil to a double boiler over medium heat.
  2. Once fully melted together, remove from heat and add essential oils.
  3. Stir well and pour into molds of choice.
  4. Allow to fully cool, then pop out of molds.
  5. Store in an airtight container and label with the blend you used and the date.

Directions With Color

  1. Add beeswax and oil to a double boiler over medium heat.
  2. Once fully melted together, add either annatto seed (orange) or alkanet root (red).
  3. Infuse for 10 minutes on medium heat.
  4. Remove from heat and strain through cheesecloth or a designated tea strainer.
  5. Add essential oils and stir well
  6. Pour into molds of choice.
  7. Allow to fully cool, then pop out of molds.
  8. Store in an airtight container and label with the blend you used and the date.

Pro tips:

  • If wanted three colors, you can half the batch and make some red and some golden or orange. When you get halfway through both colors, add them together for a third color. The tri-color melts make an amazing gift!
  • If you don’t have molds, you can pour wax drops on parchment paper and scoop some of the drops into your wax melter.
  • After continued use, the aroma will begin to dissipate. When this happens, you can freshen it up with some new essential oils. Simply let the warmer do its magic in melting the solids and then add essential oils as desired.
  • You can use the essential oils in this blend in a diffuser.
