What are Wax Melts and How to Use Them

Light Gray Wax Melter with Wax MeltsIt’s time to get your melt on.

Wax melts are a flameless candle alternative, where chunks of wax are placed into a wax warmer and slowly melted to release the fragrance into the room.

Generally, the heat is created through an electric base or a tealight. Made from 100% all-natural soy with no additives, wax melts are added to the top and are specifically designed to be used with wax warmers.

Using a Wax Warmer

The first thing to do is set up your wax warmer using the provided instructions. You’ll want to make sure the top dish is clean before placing your desired wax into the dish. And whether you use wax melts, tarts, cubes or scent shots, they’re all the same and will work perfecting in your melter.

We recommend you use 1oz of cube, which equals 3-4 of our Home Again Studios wax melts. You’ll want to add more or less, depending on the size of the room, the wax warmer and the amount of fragrance you want.

Next, turn on your warmer or light the tealight and enjoy long lasting scent as the wax melts. Make sure you remove the wax from the top dish once the scent stops.

Cleaning a Wax Warmer

If you use an electric warmer, make sure you always unplug it before cleaning. Let the wax cool to room temperature before removing it.

There are several different ways to remove the wax for a clean wax warmer. You can place the dish in the freezer for 30 minutes to shrink the wax. This allows the wax to drop out of the dish easily. Or, you can turn the wax melter on briefly, enough to melt the bottom layer of wax touching the dish. Then, flip the dish upside-down and the wax will drop out. Wipe it clean and allow the dish to cool before using again.

Heads up: make sure you never put melted wax down the drain. It will harden again, and you don’t want this to happen in the middle of your drainpipes!
