How to Make Scoopable Wax Melts

Discover the joys of crafting your own scoopable wax melts with our easy-to-follow guide, designed for creative fragrance enthusiasts.

If you love traditional wax melts, then there’s every chance you’ll feel the same way about scoopable wax melts.

What are scoopable wax melts?
