How to Make Scented Soy Melts - amends (1)
Clamshell Melts

Soy melts are one of the easiest home fragrance products you can make. No wicks or glassware to worry about, simply make us some melts and use them in your favourite melt burner.


1 Clamshell Mold
45gms of GW5715 or GW416 soy wax
6-10mls of Candle Fragrance Oil


Melt soy wax in a double boiler on your stove top. You can use a pot & a Pyrex jug but make sure the Pyrex jug doesn’t touch the bottom of the pot. It is ideal if the handle will fit over the pot edge.

When the wax reaches 78°C add your fragrance oil and stir well for two minutes.

Allow the wax temperature to drop to around 55°C before pouring the wax into the clamshell mold.

When dry, snap the lid closed and you have a pre-packaged 6-pack of scented soy melts ready for use. You can easily push on the individual blocks and place in the top of your oil burner. No mess, no fuss!

Note: Here we used a clamshell mold but you can use tart molds as well. Just adjust the ingredients accordingly.
