Learn how to make scented wax tarts with natural ingredients in this easy DIY natural wax melts recipe. These handmade coconut oil melts are edible too!
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 aren’t always made with the cleanest ingredients. 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 with coconut oil. 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 oil and natural flavorings.
