How To Get The Best Out Of Your Wax Melts

Wax melts have become an ever more popular way for us to fragrance our homes in recent years compared to the traditional scented candle. In this quick guide, we will go through our top tips to get the best out of our products. 

FIRST TIME USING WAX MELTS?

If you are only just making the transition to wax melts you may be wondering what you will need to get started. To use wax melts you will need the following;

A wax melt burner/melter 

Wax melt burners are available in a variety of sizes and shapes. You can choose between a tealight powered or an electrical powered melter. 

A Tealight 

If opting for a tealight powered melter, you will need some unscented tealights. We always recommend using a 4 hour tealight to prevent overheating, which can happen when using 8 hour tealights.

GETTING THE MOST FROM YOUR WAX MELTS

When using our wax bars, depending on room size we recommend using 1-2 segments. You can adjust the amount of wax to suit your preference and room size but be careful as to not over fill your melter.

Depending on your type of melter, you should find the wax fully melted within 15-30 minutes and filling your room with fragrance. When using electric burners, the time will differ depending on the power of the melter.

As previously mentioned, we only recommend using a 4 hour tealight over an 8 hour. This is because using a longer lasting tealight runs the risk of overheating which can lead to damage to the melter and even fire. 

GENERAL CLEANING & WAX CHANGES

The time will come where your wax melt is spent (not letting off anymore fragrance), or you may want to change the scent in your melter. To clean any left over wax you will need some cotton wool balls/pads and kitchen roll. 

If the wax is already solid, relight/turn on your melter for a couple of minutes. If it's already melted, then simply extinguish/turn off the heat source before you use a couple of cotton wool balls/pads to help prevent burning yourself or dry heating the melter. 

Simply place a couple of cotton wool balls/pads into the melter dish to soak up the melted wax and then place it in the bin. Using some kitchen roll to wipe over the melter afterwards and to hold next to the melter will avoid any drips of wax falling onto surfaces, clothing and flooring before placing in the bin.
