Method

First, melt your wax chips in a heatproof jug, then place the jug in a pan of boiling water on your hob and boil on medium for ten minutes. Leave in the pan to keep warm.

Next, add dye chips in a colour of your choice to an empty jug, and then pour 100ml of melted wax into the jug with them.

Stir the dye chips in with a whisk for a minute or so.

Next, if you want to you can add mica powder to the mix as this will make your melts metallic. Mix this well.

Moving on to fragrance, you’ll want to add 10ml of fragrance oil to the melted wax and stir this well too.

Pour this into your moulds or ice cube tray and, if you fancy, sprinkle some glitter on them before the melts harden.

Stacey is a known lover of wax melts and recently the Loose Women panellist sold out an entire shop after raving about some on Instagram.

Taking to Instagram, Stacey took a photo of an adorable melt she’d bought from a company named Seaside Melts, while penning: “small business love” on the snap.
