The Ultimate Guide to wax melts
Wax melts are simply wax that is placed in a wax burner that is melted by an unscented tea light.
It is the same wax as candles but without the wick. Wax melts come in all different shapes, sizes, and fragrances. Why not check out the Easter Wax Melts.

How to use a wax melt

  1. Remove the outer wrapper
  2. Snap a chunk off of your desired fragranced wax or 2 chunks for a stronger scent (It's also important to ensure that only the correct amount of wax is used. If you use more than a burner can hold, the wax will seep over.
  3. Light an unscented tea light and place it within the burner. (Make sure you use the right tea-light. We recommend 4 hour tea-lights as anything more and it could ruin your wax burner)
  4. Let the wax melt (literally)
  5. Once the wax melts the chosen scent is then released into the area.
Wax melts are generally stronger the candles this is because you can add more wax melt to burner if you want it a bit stronger. (as per number 2 above)

How to store wax melts

All of our wax melts come in glassine bags or organza bags. We recommend storing them in a cool dry area away from direct sunlight or any heat.
It is important to clean your burner before adding new wax melts.
If you scratch your burner, you can damage it as it could leave a crack which could be dangerous.
If you allow your wax burner to be left in a cool room when not in use, you can sometimes simply slide the remaining wax out due to how the wax shrinks.
You can also clean the wax burner by simply lighting a tea light and letting the edges of the wax melt for about a minute or two until you can see the edges melting,
then extinguish the tea light and simply wipe the wax melt out of the burner.
Wax Melts are a great way of trying a scent before purchasing a candle.
The most important thing though it that you enjoy your wax melts.
