What are Wax Melts and How Do They Work?

 

Wax melts are highly scented cubes of wax that require heat to release their fragrance.

Unsurprisingly, wax melts were originally sourced by candlemakers who wanted to make better use of their leftover candle wax. Also referred to as wax bars, wax tarts and wax cubes, wax melts have become increasingly popular over the past few years but even more so due to lockdown and the increasing demand for homeware products. Our Wax Melts are available in various shapes, sizes and scents.

 

How Do I Use A Wax Melt

Wax melts come in solid blocks and require heat to melt them. This heat can come from an electric burner or, in the case of a ceramic wax burner, from a tea light. Simply place the wax cube in the dish and light the tea light underneath. The melting wax will produce a lightly coloured vapour indicating that the scent is being released and distributed around the room. You can control the scent throw by adding more or less cubes of wax to your burner with preference to your room size or strength of the fragrance.

 

How Long Should A Wax Melt Fragrance Last?

Typically, a pack of wax melts can provide a minimum of 24 hour burn time meaning a single cube can offer 4 hours of wonderful aroma, however many people find they last for much longer than this. We suggest using either two x two hour tea lights (one at a time) or one 4 hour tea light in a burner dependent on the burner size. Larger tea lights can potentially be dangerous so please be careful.
