January Indie Pick Up: Sweet Sage Scents Wax Melt

*Press sample*
Long time no blog!  Who knew working a full time job and then working weekends would take up so much of my time.  But I'm back with a blog post for January Indie Pick Up!  What is Indie Pick Up?  Think of Polish Pick Up but without the polish - indie make up, hand made items like soap, jewelry, lip balm, lip gloss, top coats, cuticle products, a top coat or base coat and wax!  Today I'm sharing Sweet Sage Scents' contribution wax melt.

Let's get to the details!

Inspiration: Gnomes
Scent: Gnome Home
Cap: 50
Price: $5.25

A purchase of Gnome Homes will give you a 6 cube clam shell.  The scent notes are birch, ozone, woods, citrus, amber, floral and berries.  Cold sniff gave me amber and berries with a touch of floral and woods.  Upon melting, I smelled berries and amber predominantly.  It melted beautifully the blue shimmered.

And to show you how beautifully it melted, here is a melt video.

Loves: I loved the beautiful melt it created.  I love the inspiration.

Wishes:  I wish the fruit and citrus shined a little more through the melt process.  The amber really took the front stage for me and while I don't mind the scent of amber, I appreciate it more when it's in the audience and not in the spot light.  When it's used again, I will mix with a citrus scent - this is what I love about wax, you can do experiments on scents.  :)

As a reminder - all Indie Pick Up products can be purchase on their website January 4th - 7th.  Everything is pre-order and $3 flat rate shipping.  Join their Facebook Group to find out all the details.

  1. I love the variety in Indie Pickup even though I don't use melts.

  2. The melt color is beautiful. The scent sounds interesting. Not something I gravitate towards but lately I’ve been surprising myself!

  3. I'm considering getting back into wax melts, I have two cats and I feel like an open flame is just a recipe for disaster

  4. i wish i could do melts but my cat is bothered by everything lately :(

  5. I love the colors of this melt! Not sure about the scent, I am finicky about amber, it can seem very heady to me!

  6. Id like to try wax melts, but im afraid my sneaky toddler would find a way to get to it and get hurt. I miss having candles burning and the beautiful scents!

  7. I'm more a scented candle person, but I would love this kind of fragrance! TBH I prefer amber to take a backseat as well, though I do like the smell.

  8. Yeah I dont think I'm the biggest on amber being the main event. It tends to give headaches especially if strong.

  9. I miss having a warmer!!! I had a name brand that seemed impossible to find bulbs for, I need to get something with more common/easy to get bulbs. This wax sounds amazing!

  10. I have a warmer at home and one at work and everyone always compliments me on the smells so I love finding new indies to explore!

  11. I love that the color of the wax and the fact that it screams gnome!

  12. My 3 year old just popped over my shoulder and recognized the gnome and has been on repeat. I think this is his way of saying he needs it, lol!

  13. I'd be disappointed that the fruits and citrus didn't really come thru. I looooove citrus!
