What are Wax Melts

What is a Wax Melt?

Wax melts are in essence wickless candles. A scented wax that you melt in a wax warming device (electric or with a tealight) that once melted releases a far stronger and consistent fragrance than a candle. This is because you are melting at a higher and more consistent temperature and you are vaporising the scent.

How do Wax Melts Work?

Wax melts work by releasing the fragrance oil in the wax once the wax is melted. You simply put your chosen wax melt into the well of your wax burner and put a tealight underneath or switch it on if electric. When you've had enough you simply turn off or blow out the tealight and you can allow the wax to harden and use again. Once the wax starts to lose it's scent you simply remove and replace with fresh wax.

Why do people love wax melts so much?

Now this is actually several much bigger questions:

Well the short answer is that the part of your brain that processes smell is very close to the area of the brain that accesses memories.

So not only do we have a very ancient caveman (or woman) reflex to judge if a smell is good or bad, not only do we have an ancient sense of literally sniffing partners out by pheromones, we also have memories triggered by specific smells.

What is repulsive to one person is gorgeous to another. And then there are some scents that are almost universal.

If you are going to use wax melts stick to natural based waxes such as soy wax, coconut wax or beeswax based products.

Our wax melts are made with 100% all natural Soy Wax.

Wax Melts are easy and convenient 

Wax melts and wax melt warmers are more acceptable to use in the workplace, apartments, and other places where traditional candles with flames could cause difficulty. Wax melting is also preferred by parents who are cautious of small children being around flames. Melts are convenient, because there is no requirement for matches or a lighter, and the wax melts themselves are compact and easy to transport. Our melts are also made with 100% soy making any wax spills easy to clean with soap and water. Easy breezy!

You can control your scent with wax melts

You can manage the strength of your fragrance with wax melts because you can add more or less depending on your scent sensitivity or size of the room. 

In the end, wax melts are long lasting, fun, relatively inexpensive, and also provide a safe way to enjoy great scents. They are a convenient choice when you want to control the amount of scent, experiment with blending scents, and fill your home with wonderful fragrances.
