Scented wax melts are a great way to enjoy your favourite fragrance without worrying about safety concerns. They are also a great way to add a touch of luxury to your home. In this blog post, we will discuss what wax melts are, how to use them, and answer some FAQs about them.
What Are Wax Melts?
A wax melt is a type of scented wax that is melted to release its fragrance. Unlike traditional candles, which are made with a wick to heat the wax and release the scent, wax melts are designed to be used with an electric or tea light wax melt warmer. When placed in the warmer, the bulb/element/flame gently heat melts the wax, releasing the fragrance into your home. Wax melts are available in various fragrances, from fresh and floral scents to sweet and spicy aromas, making them a great way to create an inviting and relaxing atmosphere in any living space.
Why Should I Use Wax Melts?
There are a few reasons why people might want to use wax melts. First, they can be a great way to scent your home without synthetic chemicals. Many people find that they don't like the smell of artificial fragrances, which can harm your health in the long run. Second, wax melts are a great way to relax. Soothing aromas can help you calm down and de-stress after a long day. Wax melts are used to create ambiance in a room. Many people like to use different scents to create different moods. For example, citrusy aromas can generate a feeling of brightness and freshness, while lavender can be used for relaxation and calmness. Finally, wax melts are a great alternative to candles. If you're looking for something that's going to give off a more pungent scent, wax melts are the way to go. They also last longer than candles, so they're a more cost-effective option in the long run.
How Do I Use Wax Melts?
To use wax melts, you'll need a wax melt burner to hold your chosen melts. When it comes to wax melt burners, the electric versions are the most common type, but you can also use tealight burners. Once you have your wax melt burner, place a few wax melt cubes into the dish and turn on the heat. Depending on the strength of your burner, it may take a few minutes for the fragrance to fill the room. However, once the wax melts, it will continue releasing fragrance until it solidifies. When you're finished using your wax melts, turn off the heat and allow the wax to harden before scraping it out of the burner.
