Make Clamshell Wax Melts

Breakaway or clamshell wax melts are popular because they’re inexpensive and convenient. The melts are usually made in a six compartment plastic clamshell mold with a snap lid. When the wax hardens in the mold, the melts break off easily and can be placed in a candle warmer.
