As I’m writing this tutorial, I have a lavender wax melt in my warmer as we speak. Let me tell you, it smells sooooo good!

Lavender essential oil is one of my favorites, not just for the smell, but for its aromatherapy benefits as well.

Lavender is a naturally calming scent that can relieve stress and anxiety. It can also be used for easing headaches, migraines, emotional distress, and depression.

What’s not to love!?

When it comes to my home, I enjoy keeping a good smelling house whenever possible. Something about a nice scent makes me feel comfortable and at home.

I usually purchase wax melts that are sold in department stores. Don’t get me wrong those smell wonderful too. But I would so much rather make my own using essential oils for a more natural feeling.

Any chance I get to use natural ingredients, I jump right on it!

These Homemade Lavender Wax Melts for Aromatherapy uses soy wax flakes for a faster melting time.

Now before you scroll down and look at the recipe, I’ll let you know now that 100 drops of essential oils are used.

Seems like a lot doesn’t it?

Wax is a heavy ingredient. Meaning it can easily mask aromas. I find that 100 drops for two cups of soy wax flakes is the perfect amount to be able to smell and enjoy your Homemade Lavender Wax Melts for Aromatherapy.

It’s not too strong, but not too faint either. Just right!

I add lavender buds to my wax melts as they contain just as a potent smell as an essential oil does. And any excuse to use real flowers, I will.
