What are wax melts used for?

Wax melts are used to heat up scented wax to spread fragrance through a space. They can come in any scent and color of your choice for extra flair. They have their pros and cons when compared to candles or other types of diffusers, but are great for filling smaller rooms with warmth, color, and fragrance. They can use electricity or smaller unscented tealight candles as a heat source. Leftover wax can be reused or scraped out if you want to try a new scent.

How to use wax melts for aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils, which have been used as a remedy for various maladies. In the case of wax melts, you can plan to use the scents for creating a spa-like scenting and practicing your own aromatherapy. Wax melts can be purchased with spa-like scents such as our Spa Day wax melt which is perfect for a bathroom or bedroom. 

How to use wax melts as a candle replacement

Scented candles are hotter than wax melts by nature. Our preferred heat source is electricity because you can plug them in at any time and they will last as long as they're on. If you don't want fire in your home then the wax melt is a perfect replacement. Additionally, if you're worried about someone spilling fragrance oil from scent diffusers on your furniture, wax melts are perfect. Wax melts create scents at lower heat, around 150 degrees Fahrenheit. While candles do give off a bigger strong scent, wax melts create a steady flow of fragrance.

How to use wax melts

We suggest electric burners whenever possible. You can purchase a pack of wax melts from our store. They come in packages like chocolate bars where you can break off a piece. Break off individual cubes and place one of the scented pieces into the bowl of the wax melter. Each wax cube will last for weeks and you can replace them when they no longer give off the same strong beautiful aromas.
