Description

This project is super easy to make. No mold is necessary – all you need is a lined sheet pan.

First, Blushing Orchid Fragrance Oil and Baby's Breath Fragrance Oil are mixed into melted wax. Pink rose petals and jasmine flowers are sprinkled on top. Once the wax is completely cool, it’s broken into shards. 

In our tests, we found the combination of Blushing Orchid Fragrance Oil and Baby's Breath Fragrance Oil had a subtle but noticeable scent throw that worked well for a small room. We also found the rose petals and jasmine flowers didn't cause any problems in our wax warmer. They don’t come in direct contact with a flame, and the wax doesn’t get hot enough for them to burn. The petals will eventually turn brown.

Floral Wax Bark Melts Project
Wax melts are a great alternative to candles. They fill the room with scent and create a cozy atmosphere.

Ingredients

15″ Sheet Pan
Freezer Paper or Parchment Paper
10 oz. EcoSoya Q230 Wax
0.4 oz. Blushing Orchid Fragrance Oil
0.3 oz. Baby’s Breath Fragrance Oil
Pink Rose Petals
Jasmine Flowers

Instructions

1

Weigh out 10 ounces of wax in a heat-safe container. You can microwave the wax in 30 second bursts or place the container on a burner and melt over medium heat. It has a melting point of 120° F. Once melted, take the container off the heat source and set aside. Tip: You may consider designating a special container for wax because it can be tricky to clean.

2

Cover the sheet pan with freezer paper or parchment paper. Note: We don’t recommend wax paper because it can stick to the bark.

In a small glass container, mix together 0.4 ounces of Blushing Orchid Fragrance Oil and 0.3 ounces of Baby’s Breath Fragrance Oil.

When the wax has cooled to 150° F or below, pour in the fragrance blend and stir thoroughly.

7

Allow the wax to fully cool and harden for 2-4 hours.

8

Remove the paper from the wax and begin breaking it into pieces. Don’t worry about making the pieces uniform – the unique shapes are part of the appeal. Break the wax into small enough pieces so it fits your wax warmer without melting over the sides.

Once you’re ready to use, place several small pieces in a warmer. It will take a few minutes for the wax to melt and for the scent to become noticeable. Enjoy!
