Hi everyone, I’m Lisa from Life on Merlin and I am going to show you how to make these wonderful smelling soy wax tarts in no time! They are easy, fun, and inexpensive to make. Make them for yourself or give them as an awesome gift!
I just love candles but sometimes they can be pretty expensive to buy. You can make them yourself, but the process of wicking can be a little tricky.
Wax tarts are one of my favorite ways to bring fragrance into the home. But, have you priced those? Some go for around $2.00 each! I like to burn them a lot so that’s a little pricey for me. So…..why not make your own?
Once you have the supplies, it’s much cheaper to make soy wax tarts than to buy them. They can also make a thoughtful homemade gift.

What You Need:
- 24 Cup Mini Muffin Pan
- Pyrex Measuring Cup
- Soy Wax Flakes (16 ounces)
- Fragrance Oil – I used Birthday Cake (2 tablespoons)
What You Do:
Measure 16 ounces of soy wax flakes into the pyrex measuring cup.
Put some water in a saucepan, put the measuring cup in the pan with water and boil until the wax has melted.
Once it has melted, remove the measuring cup from the saucepan and add the fragrance. Stir until it is mixed well then pour into the mini muffin pan. If you would like to add color to your tarts, do so while adding the fragrance. Just make sure the color is safe for candles.
Let them sit for about 20 minutes until they are solid. The wax will turn white. Then pop them in the freezer for about 10 minutes. This will make them come out of the pan easier. Actually, most of the time as soon as I turn the pan over, the soy tarts just fall right out!
Put the soy wax tarts in a tart warmer and enjoy the wonderful smell throughout your house!
