When it comes to wax melts and candles, I do not need an excuse to buy or make them; especially at Christmas.

I find making wax melts fun, relaxing and very therapeutic. I make them every Christmas as a stocking fillers for friends and family and they go down a treat, nothing like a gift ‘made with love’ and that is exactly what I do, I make them with love. I was very excited to try this kit out I had seen then before and wanted to give then a try once my existing kits had been used up, so, just in time for Christmas, I set a day aside to make a start on it. I was most certainly impressed.

Upon opening the box I was delighted to see a little note that said; ’wake up and smell the wax melts’. It was a beginners guide to wax melt making. As I opened it up I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the paper used and the coloured illustrations. It was very well written and the guide notes have been put together very well. I have to point out how cute the Cosy Owl logo is too.

I love the fact that soya wax is used as this takes longer to burn and you do not get any black smoke from this type of wax, so this was a great start.

The 2nd thing I had to try was the fragrance oil ‘Snowflake’. O.M.G, this is absolutely divine. Smells so clean and fresh and would be perfect for anywhere in home. I kept 2 wax melts and put it one my bedroom and the other in the bathroom. Oh boy, did I feel like I was in a spa, the aroma was just joyful and uplifting. The ingredients of this fragrance oil was not listed on the bottle so I looked on their website. Taken from their website this is what they say about the fragrance oil ‘Snowflake Fragrance Oil creates a fresh floral bouquet with herbaceous mint and citrus top notes on a heart of green apple, soft jasmine and rose petal supported by a base of woods and musk.’

I followed the guidelines and the quality of the wax melts were amazing. The Silver Satin Mica Powder gave the grey wax melts a shimmery/glitter look to them. This kit really has been well thought out and I love it.

All-in-all, the kit made 24 miniature wax melts.

Our Wax Melt kits are the perfect purchase for anyone looking to get creative and start crafting their own wax melts. With this kit you have everything you need to make a variety of different shaped wax melts.

CUSTOMER SERVICE
What a delight this is. Impeccable, courteous and an absolute please to deal with.

I had the pleasure of speaking with ******* (editor’s note – name removed) at Cosy Owl, who was so kind and helpful. I wanted to double check if the fragrance oil could be brought separately or if it was only in the kit, thankfully, it can be brought separately. Stacey was also kind enough to explain, at the moment, what with Christmas, ALL fragrance oils and wax are limited to 5 per person, so, if you wanted 2 different fragrant oils, you can get up to 5 of each.

I also had the pleasure of speaking with ******** (editor’s note – name removed) on a separate occasion to chat about the thermometers. She was equally as kind and helpful as ******* (editor’s note – name removed).
