While there are so many absolutely wonderful vendors that pride themselves in wax making, there are wax vendors whose businesses are both rising and falling. I felt it was time to write another blog about why some are closing and others are just getting their toes wet. Some of the newest and latest upcoming fabulous wax vendors we found in the USA are about to be shared with all of you!

First off, let me say that it saddens me deeply to hear that some of our favorite vendors have (since my last blogs) either closed their shops or are planning to close in the near future. Whether that be because of too high of inflation, a rise in oil costs, health issues, or family matters, we are all so sorry to say goodbye. We love these vendors so much, and are so sad to see them go, but we wish them well in their future endeavors and can only hope that one day they will be aspired to pour wax again!

With this being said, I’d like to talk to all of you about some of the newest wax companies that I’ve learned of not only from some of my clients, but that I’ve met and tracked their sources, as well as learned about their businesses through either word-of-mouth or social networking.

It’s not easy being a wax vendor, and as the prices go up with fragrance oils, sadly, they have to raise their prices to accommodate their business budgets. For those of my own clients that use Savin Exporting and search out these wonderful vendors, here are some new names worth taking a look at in the USA. I encourage all of you to give these other places a try because they are vendors that you may never have heard of, but really need to make an effort to give them a go.

Let’s face it, everyone makes their wax differently, and everyone has their own techniques, but there are some really new exciting wax companies that I encourage everyone to review and put your own spin on your take of the wax. How fragrant is it? Does it smell good? Is it comforting or does it cause headaches? Some scents are too strong for our sinuses and it seems like if they trigger it we know not to go back to that particular aroma, nonetheless, with that being said, there are so many that you can put in your wax burner and smell throughout the house, because the oils are so intense.

These wonderful wax vendors are here in in the USA and they are always trying to stay on top of their ‘a-game’ and produce the very best for all of you. Some have been in business for decades and some new to the wax family.

Many of these vendors only ship within the USA. This is where I come in. Hi my name is Shelly Savin and I own Savin Exporting.  I ship globally to over 70 countries and I offer you the opportunity to select which shipping method works the best with your finances whether you can afford to ship it express and receive it in 2-5 days at a more costly amount or if you’re on a shoestring budget and want to get it for a lesser shipping cost and don’t mind waiting a little longer.

Now, let me share some of these wonderful vendors with you. Keep in mind that these are in absolutely no particular order. These are just vendors that my customers have used or that friends, coworkers, or social media has bragged about so I’ve decided to check up on these myself anonymously to see what the boast is all about.

1.)  Lavender and Speckles Scents

Did you know that this company is named after their two chickens? Yes it is and I really do think that is adorable! You can follow them onFB. Their next date to order at Lavender and Speckles is coming soon! Visit them here to see their spreadsheet of what goes into each and every pour and what they smell like soon! Click this link to not only visit their website but also to find out their new aromas and prices! To stay on top of their scents and updates, along with what the notes are in each melt, click here. I encourage everyone to give Matt & Beth’s melts a go!

2.) Second & Spruce is another great vendor wax. Erika Kane is the proud owner from Pittsburgh, PA. You can find her on the Second & Spruce Handcrafted Wax Melt FB Group.This group will be used to post updates, sales, restocks, giveaways, and for customers to connect through their love of wax! These astounding wax melts are created from a custom para-soy blend, and Erika uses only high quality fragrance oils from trusted vendors. If you wish to buy from her, the website is only open for pour-dates so do follow her FB group for dates and times!

3.) Happy Wax

Happy Wax® is the first wax melting company committed to making wax melting fun, easy, and healthy! I LOVE their packaging and marketing. They craft unforgettable wax melts made with natural soy wax, infused with essential oils and free of phthalates (chemicals.) They are all made with love in Hillsborough, North Carolina. Their soy wax melts are a must try! They come in a few sizes but they also have other wax items as well such as wax warmers and candles! They got tired of choosing between all natural products that were so weak you could barely smell them or chemical-filled products with toxic ingredients that claim to last longer. They believe in fragrance without compromise – no parabens or phthalates, no cheap paraffin wax. At Happy Wax, all of their fragrances are designed by masterful experts using concentrated scent that is designed to last longer. Translation: you can actually smell them!! The aromas will fill your entire room and FYI, they use soy wax infused with essential oils so that you can breathe easy. For people like myself with asthma, allergies and sinus issues this is music to my ears!

4.) The Melted Moose

A woman named Jackie is the creator of The Melted Moose  She decided to try making wax after she became interested in wax melts herself.  She loves crafting hobbies in her free time – such as wood crafts, painting, seasonal crafts and others.  She’s always loved candles for home fragrance. Her favorite scents are ones that induce fond memories or ones that make her want to lick the air. Find Jackie on The Melted Moose Friends and Family FB Group and ask to join. She takes her order here so do message her.

5.) Grace & Ivy Candle Company

Proud owner is Laurie Starkey from Conroe, Texas. With so many products to choose from might I highly suggest trying the squeeze wax? You can thank me later. All of the products are 100% Natural Soy! Clean and toxins free. They pride ourselves in making small-batch, hand-poured, hand-crafted wax items for your sniffing pleasure. They are a family-owned and operated business so lets support them! Also, FYI-Shipping over $35 is free when you place an order! From candles to wax melts, there is a variety of deliciousness n each of her products!

6) My Sisters Candles 

Owner Angela Grant, from Ohio has had nearly 14000 sales since starting and have nearly all 5 star reviews! With a blend of so many waxes, surely there will be a few that you need to try! Her wax melt dots are perfect especially if you only desire to purchase them as a tester to see if you will like the aromas before taking the plunge into a larger size. I like the skinny dipping dots because they are so clean smelling and freshly scented. Who doesn’t love the smell of crisp clean fresh anything? Cocoa Butter Cashmere and Vanilla Patchouli are also must haves! They also make melt squeezes in a wide assortment off scents. Blueberry Cheesecake and Pumpkin Pecan Waffles are a must try. These come in 2 different sizes. Angela’s shop is found on Etsy.

7.) Tootsies Sugar Shack

From Clinton, Illinois this wax melt company has already had over 150,000 sales! Soooo this is close to my heart because Tootsie is a rescued cat that owner Kelli got when she went to a shelter looking for a kitty. Tootsie hid and came out just as Kelli was leaving. Kitty picked her owner. Sounds like it was love at first sight. This family now has 4 cats (all off whom were rescued) and a few kiddos and they love making wax! Whats not to love about this vendor?! Please try her wax melts! The prices are a bit lower than some of the other vendors.

8) Silly Goats Soap Company

This delightful online store offers lip balms, lotions, soaps, candles, melts and  more! This is another company that the owners are totally animal lovers! Music to my ears! They are located on a small family farm in the hillside country of beautiful South-Central Kentucky. Chris and his wife Sandy are the owners. They have goats, hens, cats, dogs and 2 kiddos. They use goat milk to make their soap products all are handmade from the milk of their little herd of Lamancha goats.  They make each batch by hand, using goat milk, palm, coconut, and olive oils, along with various natural fragrances and essential oils and they use only all-natural ingredients and form the soap in their homemade wooden molds in small batches. Their soaps are great for those with skin issues such as psoriasis. Got join pain and don’t want medicines? Try their all natural joint relief products! Free shipping for all orders over $59. Please try the Silly Goat Soap Company today!

9.) Melt and Honey Candle Co

If you seek melts for appearance and super strong aromas, look no further! Lets face it, we all do a double take when we see pretty wax, however it may be that it is poured or designed differently…but is it a strong aroma that you will be able to smell in your home or office for hours? I personally desire something stronger and long lasting for sure. The Melt and Honey Candle Co  is truly just what the doctor ordered to make you smile! This is a very new melt maker trying to grow so lets help them out. I love the thought pattern that they take to design each melt and the aromas and the names of them siimply sound so tasty! The Easter Peeps are so cute and well thought out in design. This consists of 3 scent blends and each are a cute bunny shape. Whether you choose Easter Peeps Wax Melts Scented in Strawberries ‘n Cream, Orange Creamsicle or Key Lime Pie, they are all a winner! This store is found on Etsy!

10.) Tipsy Candle Company

Last but certainly not least, this wonderful candle/wax melt store. All are a must try in my personal opinion but these melts are the bomb-diggity! They make hand poured candles too. The boozy pumpkin latte candle is already my favorite! From melts to candle and tea lights, diffusers and more, here’s the scoop on their name and how the business came to be…

Tipsy Candle Company was founded in 2012 by the motivation to repurpose empty wine bottles into something renewable and reusable. They recycle wine bottles from local merchants within the Tampa Bay area and repurpose them into an extraordinary hand crafted product. Each wine bottle is de-labeled, cut, sanded, polished, and cleaned.  They hand pour all of their candles with their signature soy wax, and are infused with custom fragrances.  Each scent has a custom label that shares a themed story. This delicate process transforms the once doomed wine bottles into an artisan show pieces. Their signature soy wax is all natural and made from soybeans grown locally in the USA! They are saving the planet one bottle at a time.

Share these vendor names with everyone and please give them a try! They are all magnifiicent aromas and companies that are truly hidden gems.

You’re welcome.






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. Follow Melissa h2WaxCo on Facebook for up to date releases of new pour dates and pre orders!Please, join her Facebook page! Melissa may still be fairly new amongst these remarkable vendors, but she is going to have waiting lists to buy her wax melts before you know it!

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. They take pre-orders for wax cakes, 8 oz bags and loaves! Follow Southbound Wax on Facebook for updates and to read customer favorites, a wide variety of reviews and for the all up to date information of when she takes preorders and pours! If you’ve never tried Southbound Wax, once you do you will be addicted for sure. My clients all love it and when it arrives to my office I do truly indulge in the aromas while packing it to ship off overseas. What are you waiting for, this store should most definitely be on your list of favorites!

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!
