How to make easy DIY Christmas scented wax melts with essential oils – perfect homemade gifts! Includes 3 festive scents – peppermint mocha, Christmas tree, and eggnog latte.




  1. Line your crockpot with a crockpot liner for easy clean-up. (Or use a large saucepan over the stove.)
  2. Add 3 cups natural soy wax pellets into your slow cooker or sauce pan.
  3. For the crockpot, melt on high for 20-30 minutes. For stovetop, melt on low-medium heat stirring often.
  4. Once the wax is melted, add 25-30 drops of your preferred essential oil blend.
  5. Add the soy wax dye and allow it to melt. Use 1/2 cube for soft muted colors or 1 cube, even 2 cubes for a bright bold color.
  6. Mix everything together.
  7. For the crockpot, remove the plastic liner with the melted wax mixture inside and place it into a glass measuring cup. For the stove, pour the mixture into a glass measuring cup (you can line it with a gallon ziploc bag for easier clean-up if you prefer.)
  8. Pour the melted wax mixture into your silicone molds.
  9. Cool for a few hours.
  10. Use in your wax warmer.


Tip: Because the essential oils are natural, the scent does not last as long as the synthetic fragrances do. You may want to add 2-4 extra drops of your desired essential oil blend to the warmer to renew the scent.
