What are Wax Melts?

Wax melts are small, scented pieces of wax that are designed to be melted in a wax warmer or melter. They come in a wide range of delightful fragrances, allowing you to choose the perfect scent for any mood or occasion. Wax melts are an excellent alternative to traditional scented candles, offering a longer-lasting and more intense aroma.

Step 2: Preparing Your Wax Warmer

Before you start using your wax melts, make sure you have a clean and dry wax warmer or melter. This will ensure that the fragrance from the wax melts can fully disperse into the air. Make sure this melter/warmer is sufficient for melts and is not an oil burner check out blog post below on choosing a warmer.

Step 3: Melting the Wax Melts

Place one or two wax melts into the dish of your wax warmer or melter. It's essential not to overfill it, as the wax will melt and release fragrance more effectively when there is enough space for airflow.

Step 4: Turning on the Wax Warmer

Plug in your wax warmer and turn it on or light your 4 hour tealight depending on the type you have. As the heat is applied, the wax melts will gradually melt, releasing their fragrance into the surrounding area.

Step 5: Enjoy the Aroma

Sit back, relax, and enjoy the beautiful fragrance that fills your space. Wax melts offer a longer-lasting scent than traditional scented candles, allowing you to enjoy their aroma for hours.

Step 6: Re-Melting or Changing Scents

Once the fragrance from your wax melts starts to fade, you can either re-melt the wax or change the scent. To re-melt the wax, turn off the wax warmer, allow the wax to cool and harden, and then gently remove it. If you want to switch to a different scent, carefully discard the remaining wax in the dish and replace it with a new wax melt.

Using wax melts is a fantastic way to create a beautifully scented environment in your home.
