Homemade wax melts

I got this one from a friend that sells partylite.

The boys are sick and I normally put a tea-light burner with Vicks or eucalyptus oil but since having kids I now feel that it’s unsafe.

I was looking for eucalyptus wax melts to go into my electric melts warmer but I couldn’t find any. So I made my own.

I used 5mls eucalyptus oil and 2mls lavender oil.

What you need:

  • 1/4 cup bees wax
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 5mls minimum oils (the smelly stuff)

What to do:

  • Using a heatproof glass and pot bring water to a boil, then turn down to simmer.
  • Add coconut oil and beeswax
  • When oil and wax has melted together add the smell you like
  • Place in a container to cool.


You have to use the double boiler technique otherwise the bees wax may explode.

According to the man at Bunnings, beeswax boiling point is between 80°c and 90°c with it exploding when it’s heated over that. Not sure what he meant by explode but I think it must catch fire or splatter or something.
