Wax warmers remind me of my Grandma. She loved candles and wax melts and always had one scenting her home. I had one for years as well. Now, I typically use an essential oil diffuser to scent our home, but wax warmers just seem so cozy this time of year!
There are so many great fall scents you can fill your home with using a wax warmer. If you use an electric wax warmer (rather than one heated with a tealight candle), you can let them run all day without risk of fire.
Unfortunately, commercial wax cubes are packed with chemicals that can cause all sorts of health issues. If you're just discovering this fact and you use a wax warmer, you may find yourself worried about your family. Fortunately, there is a completely safe and even edible option for you to keep using a wax warmer.
All you have to do is make up a batch or two of these all natural edible wax warmer cubes. They're super easy to make and you can scent them however you like using essential oils or natural flavoring oils.
I love this option because if your little ones happen to get their hands on them and eat them, it's totally safe! All they'll get is a serving of coconut oils, which has tons of health benefits, and natural flavorings.
