How do wax melts work?
Wax melts are sweeping the nation as a money saving and safer alternative to candles, but many people aren't familiar with it. If you're new, here you'll find helpful information on scenting your home with wax melts and getting the best use out of the product.
1. What are wax melts?
Much like the flame of a candle heats the wax, releasing aromas throughout your home, wax melts sit in a heated dish and melt hot enough to release aroma without the flame! Which also means, no wax burns off into your air, just aroma. Some wax melters are plug-in electric, while some use tea light candles below a suspended dish. Both can make for a phenomenal fragrance experience!
2. Are wax melts safer than candles?
While wax melts work much like a candle, where wax is melted and aroma oil is released from the hard wax, the benefit is no flame touching the wax itself. A direct flame can burn your fragrance and alter the perfumers creative vision. When wax itself is burned, it must go somewhere, the air, the walls, the carpets. Over time, burned wax builds up in a home which isn't that comfy at all.
No flame also means less chance of fire hazard, making wax melts more ideal for homes with curious children and animals. Just ask the National Candle Association, who report an average of 25 home candle fires every day.
Wax warming helps avoid these hazards. Even when a warmer is left on, most warmers are tested thoroughly by ETL or UL certified tests, which means they are safe to leave on.
3. Are wax melts cheaper than candles?
Safety aside, wax melts also serve as a money saving alternative to candles, especially for those of us who go a little candle-crazy. Wax melts typically contain more fragrance per ounce of wax, and use a blend of wax created for melting without flame. Some wax blends even being non-burnable all together do to natural additives.
The ability to swap your aromas, control how many cubes to melt and the higher strength makes wax melts an easy way to save on home aroma. Our wax melts contain double to triple the industry average.
So there it is! Dive on in to the world of wax, knowing safety and fragrance experience are always first.
