Spring Rain Essential Oil Blend + Wax Melt Recipe

Spring Wax Melts in the shapes of bees and flowers sitting in a bowl- surrounded by fresh flowers.

I love to live fully within the seasons. I take in all the nuances of the seasonal elements, ebbing and flowing with the twists and turns of the weather and the expansion and contraction of daylight. This mindfulness practice allows me to connect with the “now” and fully appreciate all that the Earth shares with us through her wondrous cycles. 

Now, as the spring rains fall and the first blooms of the season begin to unfurl, I feel called to create a new aromatherapy blend that melds with my natural environment. I have found over the years that many seasonal aromatherapy creations are created to match the exact scents of the season, rather than to complement nature’s aromatic offerings. In other words, they try to “outdo” the subtle aromas of nature by making them stronger.

I crafted this “Spring Rain” recipe to highlight the elements of spring while leaving enough room for nature to shine through. The bergamot I used in this blend is light and breezy and allows the fresh blooming flowers to dance with the olfactory senses. Similar to cheery lemon balm, litsea cubeba is added as a symbol of the sun which generously shines longer and with promise. Meanwhile, sweet marjoram offers an herbaceous tenacity, which helps balance the ethereal scents of the previous two oils. And finally, vetiver grounds out the blend, offering its sweet and earthy notes, symbolizing the damp earth.

Spring Rain Essential Oil Blend:

While perfect for a diffuser blend or room spray, I love making this blend into wax melts as they last a long time and can be freshened up as needed. I also love that I can incorporate fun seasonal shapes, making them fun as gifts or even wedding favors.

Spring Rain Wax Melt Recipe

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Add beeswax and coconut oil to a double boiler over medium heat.
  2. Leave on heat until ingredients are fully melted together.
  3. Remove from heat and add essential oils

  5. Allow to fully cool, then pop out of molds.
  6. Store in an airtight container and label with the blend you used and the date.

How to Make Wax Melts- Pouring wax mixture into flower shaped molds.


Pro tips

  • If you don’t have any molds to use, you can pour wax drops on parchment paper and scoop some of the drops into your wax melter.
  • If you have lots of wax left in your wax warmer, but the aroma is dissipating, 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.
  • If you only want to make a small batch, you can easily cut this recipe in half.
  • I prefer refined coconut oil as it leaves no coconut scent behind. You can also substitute the coconut oil for a different oil, but you will have to adjust the ratio since coconut oil is semi-solid at room temperature. 
  • Vetiver is a naturally viscous oil, so you will likely need to remove the essential oil reducer top and use a pipette to dispense.
