These instructions are for making soy wax melts. Because soy wax has a low melting point, it can be melted either in the
Microwave or in a pan over a pan of water (double boiler) as you would melt cooking chocolate.
There are many different moulds available to make wax melts. Metal tart cases, silicone moulds and some sweet moulds can all be used. To avoid wastage and easier fragrancing, it is always a good idea to calculate how much wax per mould. If the moulds aren't big enough to fill with liquid, it might be worth making a dummy batch and weighing when set so that you know how much wax each mould holds.
For reference, a tart mould holds approx 22grms, the pink mould holds approx 60grms,the blue stars 55grms and the other blue mould 75grms.
 
What you will need.
 
Ecosoy pillar wax
Moulds.
Plastic jug or two old pans.
Optional fragrance and colouring.
Thermometer(optional)
Directions
Place the required amount of wax into a plastic jug and melt in microwave. Alternatively, melt a larger amount and weigh off enough for your melts.
Start with two minutes, less for small amounts and add 30secs at a time till melted. There is no need to continue once all wax is melted.
Any colouring can be added at this point.
Alternatively, place in an old pan over a pan of boiling water and heat till melted.
Your wax will be at approx 70c.
Stir wax and allow to cool to approx 45-50c.
When wax is at cooled temp, fragrance can be added.
Stir fragrance thoroughly into wax to avoid pooling.
Pour wax into mould and leave to set at room temp. Do not place anywhere too cold.
