What are wax melts?
Wax melts are much like candles but without the wick. They are usually scented and come in various shapes and sizes. They are primarily used for aromatherapy or filling oneís home with a welcoming scent. In either case, wax melts are much better than traditional candles because they absorb heat slowly which results in aromas being released without burning the oils.
They are easy to use, too. Simply put your wax melts in a warmer or melter which can either be electric or tealight. Either way, turn on your electric melter or light your tealight to start using your wax melts. Once you are done, you can easily turn off your electric melter or remove the heat source of your tealight. Over time your wax melts will solidify, ready for your next usage.
Which wax melt should you use?
Wax melts, just like candles, are either made from soy wax or paraffin wax. We highly recommend avoiding wax melt made from paraffin wax. Paraffin wax is a petroleum by product and harmful to our bodies and on the environment. Soy wax on the other hand is 100% eco-friendly and can be used as often as you want. Not only wax melt made from soy wax burn slower, they also give off fragrances beautifully and are 100% safe for us and our planet.
There are plenty of benefits to using wax melts over traditional candles. Wax melts are cheaper because they burn slowly, gives off more fragrances and good on the environment. Since they donít have a wick, wax melts are flame-free. If you prefer to use a tealight or oil burner made from ceramic, while you need to use a flame to melt the wax melts, it is not exposed which makes it less likely to catch something else on fire by accident. And since you don't burn wax melts, they don't give off soot as well.
Whether you enjoy aromatheraphy or just want to fill your home with natural scents, there is a wax melt for you.
