  • 120g ecosoya PB wax flakes
  • Roughly 6-8 shavings of lime green dye block ( I grated it on a fine zester and also used proper candle dye.. not food colouring)
  • 12mls of fragrance oil of choice which mine was 'alien' (hence the reason it's green)
  • Mould
  • Candy thermometer


  • Heat water in slow cooker
  • (I used a 1.5l on high)
  • Weigh up wax and add colour
  • Place in a durable device. Something that won't melt. I used a Pyrex jug because it has the pouring spout.. I also considered a stainless steel milk jug
  • Put in water uncovered for approx 4 hours or until the wax reaches temp of 65°C (measured with a candy thermometer).
  • Add fragrance and when wax cools slightly as it will drop in temp when the smell is added, pour into a 6 pocket clam shell moulds and let set for 24 to 48hr before sealing.


  • Not all waxes have the same melt and pour point and some fragrances also use a different fragrance:wax ratio.
  • I used 10% fragrance to wax as when I bought them that's what the instructions were.
