My name is Shelly Savin and I own Savin Exporting. I’ve been referred to lately as the Gossip Girl of wax vendors chatting amongst my wax lover friends and clients, but I prefer calling it spreading the love of wax. After I wrote my last blog about American Wax Melts Worth Taking a Peek At, I wondered if I would catch the eye of any of my clients with the narrative? I had so many people reach out to me about these vendors. I received so much fabulous feedback not to mention the excitement from my clients that I felt it was time to do some bragging about a variety of other vendors that just may knock your socks off with appeasing sweet-smelling aromas! This blog is definitely a MUST READ…Some Fabulous ‘Must Try’ USA Small Business Wax Vendors.
Like myself at one time, I was a start up company and I truly believe in collaborating with others to grow together. My current clients buy wax from vendors and they forward their orders from these amazing wax companies to my offices so that I can send them abroad to a variety of countries that they all live so that they may enjoy, indulge and savor these fascinating blends.
Nevertheless, after such astonishing feedback from my last blog, I thought to myself “why not share more of these hard working vendors here in the USA that pour some pretty fantastic aromas trying to build their businesses?” These vendors are all really great and have such unique qualities about them and their products. I don’t think that any two are alike. If I may, these vendors are all in the USA and all offer such top notch services!
With that being said, lets get this show on the road and get started talking wax. These amazing USA wax vendors are in no particular order and they are all companies that I don’t think you would regret buying from, in fact, they may be addicting!
Lets talk wax, shall we? Located in the heart of Virginia, is one special wax vendor that I have come to know and love. I especially enjoy talking to and working with the owner of the wax company called 804ESCENTIALSLLC This duo traveled up and down the coast stopping at various states selling at craft sales and trade shows to get their name and branding out there. They had a selection of gift baskets, handcrafted lotions, body oils, fragrance oils, concentrated air fresheners, home decor and melts galore. They have been around for decades. They started with only 5 fragrances and now they are up to well over 300. Did you know that they allow you to choose 3 single oils to create your own fragrance masterpiece. This truly opens up the door to so many blending possibilities. Mini Melts are a good buy and a few to try are Cashmere Clouds, Poolside Splash, and Buttercream Crunch Cake. 804EscentialsLLC wants to fill your home with such amazing aromas! One of the best waxes that Melissa and James, (the owners) started this decades ago with something so different and unique. A group of them who all collaborated together to find a new way to astound people with something exclusive, put out a softer more scoopable wax in the 1990s called Scoopz. With so many blends to try you’ll enjoy these aromatic delights as much as I do. Two must tries are Cake By the Ocean and Zucchini Cream Cake. Naked Flowers are another awesome try! Boozie Bites are my favorite nonetheless a good one for the fall season is Pumpkin Roll. I love the melts that Melissa puts out because they are different and she’s always changing them so you’re not just getting a clam style melt. These are seriously a must have to put on your list! After that they began making and selling the chunks style waxes. James runs the back end of the office and Melissa does the amazing work in the front with the wax making. All handcrafted these fabulous scents became a popular scentsation in the US. Visit their company page on Facebook and follow them for new wax goodies.
Another from Etsy; I truly believe you’ll love this one…try Kays Creative Soaps. Yes, she also sells homemade wax melts too and she is from Wallace, South Carolina! Try these handcrafted organic artisan soaps. Might I suggest the Candy Apple which is just one of many! I think I might need to try Cocktails By the Pool. Its funny you know…I don’t like the taste of coffee at all but oh how I low the smell of it. Therefore this is a must try. How about fluffy whipped soap?
Melissa Hamilton, the owner of h2 Wax Co fairly new as of 2020, determined and thriving in the wax world this gal took her love of melting wax and turned it into her love of making wax! You’ll find that her products match her personality and all of her favorite things! She lives in Southern California so yes, she loves wine, white preferably. She resides there with her husband, daughter, and 2 devilish cats. She owns 2 businesses; a wax company and a beautiful jewelry store called B Enchanted. Melissa rarely finds time for herself, nevertheless, she loves what she does! Her goals were never to own her own businesses. Melissa has a Masters Degree in Secondary Education. After having her first child, like so many of us, she decided to stay home with her daughter. Working with wax, naturally her aromas and favorite scents do change, but currently she’s loving anything with Iced Vanilla Woods or Bum Bum. Her passion is in creating each blend. I’m liking the sounds of Fluffy Saltwater Taffy snap bar, and Salted Caramel Ice Cream Bon Bon. She just started using my services to ship abroad and over the pond! Visit her website and take a peek at many of these to choose from La Confiserie.

Here is one on Etsy that is a must shop wax store. Lets talk about SalemSoyCo. Since I live at the beach this one really stood out and made me want to try it! Its called ‘Beach Hair, Don’t Care!’ (A blend of awapuhi sea berry, biolage matrix and coconut coast.) Looking for something fruity? You’ll really want to dive into this blend of bread and sweet strawberries called Mariah Berry Bread? The owners name is Kiersten Anderson. Lets talk about Kiersten shall we? She has a story. Her family lived in an apartment. They moved out of the apartment because they didn’t allow candles. After she moved she was over the moon to be able to order candles again. Naturally Kiersten placed an order for some from one of the popular candle stores and they arrived smashed, She decided to melt them down and use them in her warmers! Believe it or not, that started it all! She spent the next two years researching how to make melts and candles on her own. She loved that she was able to mix scents to get a few fragrances that she hadn’t smelled before. She took the time to figure out how to work with it to make them unique and colorful and they are certainly detailed and beauties! She will also be leaving Etsy and going to her own SalemSoyCo website soon! I promise to keep everyone up to date! Here are a few of Kiersten’s customer favorites: Strawberry Pound cake, Beach Hair, Don’t Care…Salty AF ( zesty lime and salty sea air) and Bougie Bonfire Smores (toasted strawberry marshmallow and Brûlée sugar cookie)
If you haven’t head of this small business owner that I am about to share with you, she sells wax yet you need to get to know her! Rachel Wales is the owner and from what I gather from feedback from my clients, she is absolutely amazing! Southbound Wax offers a blend of hand crafted home fragrances. She has been in business since 2013. Her personality is as sweet and her melts are fabulous. They have a variety of melts already for you to buy them and take them home. So many scents nevertheless a few favorites, available in clamshell and all perfect for summer are; Beach Hair, Bohemia Raspberry, Bum Bum and Cabana Boy, Coconut Mango Tango, and how about Let’s Get Baked, just to name a few.

Salt Mountain Melts This amazing wax melt company that I have heard about from my dear friend Nancy Simmang offers up some amazing fragrances in melts. Amanda Dixon started her business in 2018 because of her great love for home fragrances. She only does pre-orders and they happen about every 8-9 weeks so keep an eye out for these special dates! The best way to get information on this store and ordering is on Salt Mountain Private Facebook Group page. You’ll need to request to join if you are not already a member. They made a couple of wax products a few years ago (2020) called ‘Daisy Dukes and Flip Flops’ and it sounded so amazing…I really wish that it would be on their list to bring back this summer. Here are some to watch for and try…Bomb Pop – cherry slushie + blue raspberry slushie + fizzy pop (sounds delish!) or try this…Berry Go Round – saltwater taffy + strawberry raspberry guava. Delightful as it sounds this is a gem…Under The Boardwalk – caramel apple + caramel popcorn + vanilla ice cream… another one, Backyard Bash – strawberry + pretzel + cream cheese frosting + whipped cream.
Might I recommend to you a company that you must try, The Bathing Garden? Here they offer lotions, cold processed whipped soaps, scrubs and melts. Their Spring Collections has scrubs, soaps and melts. I think it is fantastic and I love the carrot cake melts. These bad boys smell of moist carrot cake topped with cream cheese frosting. Personally I LOVE carrot cake. It was my Dads favorite so the aroma of these wax melts really does remind me of him. You can also give the 4 ounce Salted Caramel Popcorn Coconut Oil Sugar Scrub a go! Got to snatch these fast though because they sell out super fast! Lastly, I highly recommend and you won’t regret…checking out the Wonderland Collection.
Vintage Chic Scents is a company that was started in Grain Valley, MO. The owner of this company really sets out to achive making premium hand poured wax in small batches from scratch and her scents really make memories come alive. She has an enormous selection of scents to choose from. In Dolly We Trust is one of her categories and if you like foodies smells like me then this loaf is the perfect choice for you. The weight is nearly 14-14.8 oz so it is a hefty fella. It is a Vanilla Hazelnut Mocha Cookie Blend and it is called 9-5. Don’t need something quite that large? Try the Yellow Dolly’s Banana Pudding Cake topped with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting. These melts are approximately 3-3.5 oz total weight. You really can’t go wrong with any of these melts.
Next stop, last but certainly not at all the least as this company really does have rave reviews… Silky Soaps and Scents! Not sure what scents are available? Here is Michelle’s list of scents and there are many so do take the time to take a lookie! She also sells half pound and one pound bakery bags of melts. If you have any questions she has a ‘Let’s Chat’ on her website. Lets talk about their dazzlers first… Magical Unicorn Pop is about to be my favorite. It is fruity and although I don’t love fruity scents all the time, this one is awesome. It offers tangy citrus notes of satsuma and blood orange with a dash of goji berry bottom notes blended with sugary crystals and how about a tiny hint of creamy vanilla? Their shape is designed like that of a popsicle. Thats probably what caught my eye and attracted me to this one so quickly as I am a kid at heart and I love popsicles. Don’t fancy that? Then try the perfect sampler Strawberry Pound Cake Sampler.
With all of these being shared, a reminder,…Please if you have not tried WoofWix yet what are you waiting for? I mentioned in my last blog about these incredible people that I just adore. Amber and Steven Wolf who make luscious candles and wax melts from their cozy little office located in Kimball, Michigan are killing it in the wax world! WoofWix is amazing! They sell too many to list so follow this link for the list of blends. I love their coffee melts. Like Salt Water Taffy? Me too! Vicks Dupe for those that suffer cold symptoms and maybe even allergies? Coconut Creamery? Gosh if this doesn’t remind me of my Dad I don’t know what does. His favorite was coconut cream pie. Add waffle come and sugar cookies to the mix and BAM! I wrote about WoofWix in my last blog and ya’ll really need to shop their store!
