Frequently Asked Questions
Soy wax or paraffin wax is typically used to produce wax melts. However, soy wax is generally considered to be a better option. They often last longer than paraffin and burn more optimally. Additionally, it is advisable to use a dye-free, 100% natural soy wax melt.
Wax melts are fragrant pieces of wax without a wick. When cold, a wax melt may have a faint aroma, but they are made to be slowly warmed in a tart or wax warmer. Some wax warmers use a tea light as the heating source, while others are electric.
It's quite simple to use wax melts. Take your wax melts and just put one or more of them in your warmer or melter. Then light your tea light or switch on your heat warmer to melt the wax. When you are done using them, simply switch off or remove the heat source, and the wax will solidify until you are ready to use it again.
Wax melts can be reused until the scent completely fades. You can use the same melts in your wax warmer for hours on end while maintaining a constant temperature. The scent will gradually disappear with use until it is completely gone. New wax melts should be used once the scent has subsided.
The term "burn time" refers to how long a wax melt can be burned before losing its aroma. When using two wax cubes, you should expect the scent to last between 8 and 12 hours. The burn time, however, can vary based on wax and oil quality and the production process.
