How to Make Your Wax Melt Stand Out

How to Make Your Wax Melt Stand Out

Staff Account ·

We’re here to give you inspiration with techniques, glitters, mica powders and moulds to use which will help you stand out from the crowd.

Experiment with different fragrances: Instead of sticking to traditional scents, try blending different fragrance oils or essential oils to create your own unique scent combinations. This can make your wax melts more appealing and memorable.

Use high-quality ingredients: Invest in high-quality soy wax flakes or beeswax to ensure that your wax melts have a smooth and clean burn. Lower quality ingredients can result in a less desirable final product.

Add colour: Consider adding colour to your wax melts to make them visually appealing. You can use dye chips or liquid dyes specifically made for candle making. Be cautious with the amount of dye you add, as too much can affect the scent throw.

Experiment with different mould shapes: Instead of using traditional wax melt moulds, try using silicone moulds in unique shapes or designs. This can make your wax melts more visually interesting and eye-catching.

Decorate the packaging: Pay attention to the packaging of your wax melts. Consider adding labels, ribbons, or decorative touches to make them more attractive. A well-presented product can make a big.

Offer limited edition or seasonal scents: Introduce special scents that are only available for a limited time or during specific seasons. This creates a sense of exclusivity and urgency, encouraging customers to try them before they're gone.

Provide personalised options: Offer custom scents or personalized labels for special occasions like weddings, birthdays, or holidays. This adds a personal touch and makes your wax melts more memorable as gifts or party favours.

Remember to test your wax melts thoroughly before selling or gifting them to ensure they have a strong scent throw and a good burn.

Different methods to consider -

You can consider using our glitters, mica powder, bekro dye chips, moulds, clamshells and liquid dye.


This is used to decorate your wax melts. Choose your selected glitter and add with mica spoons to your mould before pouring over the wax. Once set, your wax melts will be sparkling! Check out our website for our full range of beautiful glitters.

Mica powder

This is used to add to the wax once its melted, to make it the colour you desire. Most people will base the colour they use, on the fragrance oil smell.

We have a huge range on our website, this is just a little example of the ones we have.

Bekro dye chips

You can add these to your hot wax to add colour, remember a small chip goes a long way and a packet of these will last you a while.

Moulds & Clamshells

You can buy all sorts of different moulds and clamshells in different shapes and sizes. You can also create your own moulds and get them made specially on certain websites.

Also think about your clamshells and how to package them to make them stand out. You can add things like stickers or bows to give an extra touch. Also think about seasonal packaging like Christmas and Halloween, using themed clamshells and moulds can really make you stand out. We sell a few different types on our website, but these can sell out quickly.

Here's some examples of amazing wax melts from our Craftiful customers for inspiration. 

We hope this blog gives you inspiration on what to use to make sure your wax melts stand out.
