Christmas Tree Scent Wax Melts

We’re an essential oils family, so it’s only natural that crafts that contain essential oils are some of our favorite go-to activities. These Christmas tree scent wax melts smell just like pine trees with a healthy dose of Christmas goodness.

Homemade Christmas Gifts

One of our favorite things to do with wax melts is to give them as gifts to friends and family. They’re a simple homemade Christmas gift, but they make the house smell amazing and we make them with a lot of love. 

Even if your friend or family member isn’t big on candles, there are electric wax melt warmers that they can use instead. Here’s one of our favorites. Since we have 5 cats, 2 dogs, 2 guinea pigs, and 3 kids, candles are a big heck no in our house!

Unlike a lot of our Christmas crafts, this one is best done by teens and adults. The wax can get very hot and it’s always best to make these Christmas tree melts with supervision. 

We do not recommend that preschool or elementary-age children make these. Tweens and teens can make them – with adult supervision.
