Using a Wax Melt Warmer; essential oils blends

Young Living essential oils

So you have a wax warmer that you put away when you switched to essential oils and an using electric diffuser… but WAIT… Dig that wax melt warmer out and use it WITH your essential oils!!!

That’s right, you can replace the artificial scented wax melts with a mix of YOUR own essential oils. It’s quite easy. I did it, so you can too 😉

Step one, dig out those old unscented tealights OR use unscented wax melts.

If using tealights, remove the tealight from the metal or plastic mold and then remove the wick. Break the tealight wax into pieces like the image to the left and place in warming plate.

Step two, turn on warmer.

Step three, when the wax pieces have melted, add essential oils!

One of my favorite blends is two drops each of lavender, Frankincense and Cedarwood from Young Living Canada.

Another good mix is Lavender and Peppermint; Lemon, Orange and Tangerine; Thieves and Lemon and Rosemary is a good one for the kitchen mix a couple of drops of Lemon or Lavender with it. I stick to the basic single essential oils, not blends as it is more fun to create your own custom scents when mixing the oils in the wax warmers.

That’s it, that’s all. Easy peasy.  You’ve just created your own custom wax melt scent with using your essential oils! Diffusing isn’t only for the electric diffuser styles out there, you can enjoy your essential oils with any electric wax warmer and candle powered warmers out there.

Don’t have a wax warmer? Check for a local distributor for Scentsy!    

OR… get it from AMAZON like these ones 😉           

There are a few different types such as:

Candle powered:

Plugin style:


Or plugin counter top (or another surface of choosing)


I have three wax melt warmers in the home…

I placed one in my home entrance so the lovely scents will carry over the wet boot smell lol! One in my kitchen and one in the living room! The biggest thing I can tell you about wax warmers is DO NOT leave them unattended. The wax CAN get too warm and start spitting making one heck of a mess. So let it warm  up for a couple of hours and then turn it off, the scent will last a while as the wax hardens again.

There you have it, using essential oils on a wax warmer! Comment if you have any questions or suggestions, I want to hear from you 🙂 Have a most wonderful day!
