What are wax melts and why you should use them?

Wax melts are small, scented pieces of wax that are designed to be melted in a wax warmer or a wax melt burner. They are a popular alternative to traditional candles and are used to add fragrance to your room or space.

Here are 6 reasons why you should consider using wax melts:

  1. Scented Atmosphere: Wax melts are known for their strong and long-lasting fragrance. They release aromatic oils when melted, filling the room with fragrance of your choice. Whether you prefer soothing lavender, refreshing citrus, or cosy vanilla, there is a wide variety of scents available to suit your preferences.
  2. Flameless Option: Unlike candles, wax melts are flameless. They are heated by a low-wattage electric or tea light-powered wax warmer. This makes them a safer choice, especially if you have children, pets, or concerns about fire hazards.
  3. Versatility: Wax melts are highly versatile. They come in various shapes and sizes, allowing you to choose the one that fits your wax warmer or burner. Additionally, you can mix and match different scents to create your own unique fragrance combinations.
  4. Cost-Effective: Wax melts tend to last longer than traditional candles. When you burn a candle, the wick consumes the wax, limiting its lifespan. In contrast, wax melts gradually release fragrance as the wax melts, allowing you to enjoy the scent for extended periods. You can reuse the same wax melt multiple times until the fragrance fades away.
  5. Easy to Use and Clean: Simply place the wax melt in the wax warmer, switch it on, and let the heat do its job. As the wax melts, it releases its fragrance into the air. Cleaning up is also hassle-free. Once the wax cools down and solidifies, you can remove it from the wax warmer, discard it, and replace it with a new wax melt.
  6. Customisable Fragrance Intensity: One advantage of wax melts is that you can control the fragrance intensity by adjusting the number of wax melts you use at a time. If you prefer a milder scent, use fewer melts, and for a stronger aroma, add more. This flexibility allows you to tailor the fragrance to your liking and the size of the room. 

Wax melts are a great option to add delightful scents to your space. They provide a flameless alternative to candles and allow you to enjoy a variety of fragrances, creating a warm, welcoming environment.
