Ceramic Wax Burners
What is a wax melt burner?
Sometimes called a wax melt warmer, they come in two main types. Those which are powered by use of a tea light (ceramic burner) and electric burners (usually made of glass). Our wax melt burners / wax melt warmers have been specifically designed to work with our range of beautifully scented wax melts available here. A piece of scented wax (a wax cube or one of our wax discs) is placed in the top of the burner whilst a tea light is placed in the bottom (ceramic burner). When lit, the heat from the tea light will rise and melt the scented wax thus releasing the wonderful aroma into the room. The principle is the same for an electric wax melt burner except that you turn the electric burner on and do not need to use a tea light. The heat will then cause the wax to melt and thus release the beautiful aromatic scent and fragrance your room. Both electric and ceramic burners give a wonderful ambience in a low light room, hence they are often referred to as a wax melt lamp. Ceramic models just give off the warm light from the tea light whereas there are multitude of colours to choose from with electric wax melt lamps.

How do I remove old wax from a wax burner prior to adding a new fragrance wax melt?
The easiest way to change your wax melt is to either turn on your electric burner or light your tealight in your ceramic burner. Allow the heat to melt the underside of the wax for a couple of minutes. When the underside of the wax has started to melt, stabilise the wax melt burner with one hand and slide the old wax out with the other hand. Remove any residue wax with a soft tissue before adding a new scented wax melt to the burner.
Can I use oil in a wax melt burner?
You can use oil in your warmer but we wouldn’t recommend it purely on safety grounds. If you choose to do so, simply fill your burner bowl with water, add a few drops of oil and then light a tealight. Be aware that water evaporates much faster than wax and could result in overheating and thus becoming damaged. Safety issues: Whether you use a ceramic burner with a tea light or an electric burner, we recommend that you place the burner on either a plate or mat rather than directly onto furniture. Electric burners will continue to run regardless of whether the dish contains any wax, this could cause damage if it isn't turned off before this happens. Tea light burners will only burn for a limited period depending on the size of tea light used but again should not be left unattended. We recommend our 2-4 hour tea lights available here. rather than 4-8 hour tea lights. Tea lights (a small wax candle) that are too large for the container can cause over heating and although unlikely are a potential fire hazard. Also remember that a wax melt burner will get hot so keep well away from children, animals and soft furnishings.
