What are Wax Melts and Why Should You Use Them?
Wax melts are a fantastic way to fill your home with delightful fragrances without the limits candles bring. These small, scented pieces of wax are designed to be melted in a wax warmer, releasing a pleasant aroma that can transform any space into a cozy and inviting environment. Their size and price make it a lot easier to have a wider range unlike candles which come in larger forms, take more space to store and aren't as budget friendly.
Step 1: Choose the Perfect Wax Melts
Before you can start enjoying the wonderful scents, you need to choose the right wax melts. There are countless options available, from floral and fruity to warm and spicy. Let your imagination run wild and pick a fragrance that suits your mood and preferences.
Step 2: Prepare Your Wax Warmer
Now that you have your wax melts, it's time to prepare your wax warmer. Make sure it's clean and free from any residue. If you're using an electric wax warmer, simply plug it in and wait for it to heat up. If you have a tea light wax warmer, light the candle and place it underneath the dish. Make sure your tealight is no larger than 4hours and is unscented. This will not only help your melts last longer but it also reduces the risks of a fire.
Step 3: Break Off a Piece of Wax
Take one of your wax melts and break off a piece. The size of the piece will depend on the size of your wax warmer, I find just a small piece works best in electric warmers, for our segment pots I recommend just one segment. For larger rooms I advise more burners rather than adding more to the same warmer.
Step 4: Place the Wax in the Warmer
Put the piece of wax in the dish of your wax warmer. If you're using an electric warmer, the heat will gradually melt the wax and release the fragrance. If you have a tea light warmer, the heat from the candle will do the job. Sit back, relax, and let the magic happen!
Step 5: Enjoy the Aroma
As the wax melts, it will release its captivating scent, filling your space with a delightful aroma. Take a moment to breathe in the fragrance and let it transport you to a world of relaxation and serenity. Feel free to close your eyes and imagine yourself in a tranquil oasis. Allow memories to flood back in.
Step 6: Replace and Experiment
Once the fragrance starts to fade, it's time to replace the wax melt. Simply remove the dish from the warmer and discard the used wax. For warmers that don't have a removable dish once it starts to warm it should just slip out or use cotton pads to soak up melted wax. Repeat the process with a new piece of wax and explore different scents to keep your home smelling fresh and inviting.
Using wax melts is a simple and enjoyable way to create a cozy atmosphere in your home. So go ahead, indulge in the wonderful world of wax melts and let your senses be captivated by their enchanting fragrances!
