Citrus Layered Melts

I absolutely LOVE the smell of citrus fruits all year round! If you have not smelled the Fruit Slices from BCN, you truly are missing out on one of the BEST fragrances ever! Fruit Slices is the perfect medley of Sweet Oranges with accents of Juicy Limes and Tart Lemons. This scent is great in Wax Melts, Candles, Body Products and CP soaps like a dream come true. 

This is positively one of the best fragrances to offer your customers this spring and summer. it is many of our customers go-to scents!

Supplies List:
EZ Parasoy Wax
Fruit Slices 

Dye (I used orange, kelly and yellow liquids)
Molds or clamshells

Instructions: Heat wax to 180°. Once wax reaches desired temp, add your dye, blend well then add fragrance and again blend well. When using this wax in the metal molds you can pour at 175°, if you are using it in the clamshells, be sure to cool to around 150°  to pour so that you do not melt the molds.

For these particular melts, I layered them. I split my batch of wax into three equal parts based
on what I planned to make. I scented at 9%. I poured each layer into the mold and allowed them to cool until they were still a bit warm but fully set then poured the next layer. People love the layered look. You can also layer different fragrances for a unique look/smell. Try Bacon, Vermont Maple Syrup and Buttermilk Pancakes or how about layers of Gooey Caramel and Macintosh Apple. The possibilities are endless!

If you have not tested the Ez Parasoy, this is a great time to do so. This wax is incredible for melts and jar candles alike! The scent throw is amazing. I am sure your customers will agree!

Happy Candle Making!
