How to Melt Wax Without a Warmer

Here are some tips on how to melt wax without a warmer:

  • Use the oven instead of a wax warmer. Put the wax into an old pan or dish that you don’t care about and put it into the oven on warm, then once it’s melted, turn off the oven. Do not open the door if you want it to stay warm for a while.
  • Light a candle in a jar or container, then add wax to it for a pleasant scent when the candle is burned out.
  • Boil water, then put wax into a container that can hold it (like an old tin) and submerge the container in the boiling water. Make sure you hold the container to avoid it sinking and burning your hands.
  • Fill a pan or pot with water, then place wax into an old tin, put it in the water, and turn on the stove.
  • Carefully put wax into a pot of hot cocoa (but make sure it’s not too hot or boiling).
  • Put wax into a container and put it in a sink of hot water. Make sure the container is waterproof. If it isn’t, don’t do this method.
  • Put wax into a metal tin and put it in hot water. Make sure the container is waterproof. If it isn’t, don’t do this method.
  • If you have a microwave, place wax into a microwavable dish and heat on half power, then stir. If it’s not melted, try 30-second increments at a time until melted.
  • Melt wax in a pot on the stove with water in it, be careful when doing this method because boiling water is boiling and can cause serious injuries. Do not leave unattended.
