In this blog post, we’ll be exploring the world of wax melts and giving you four things that you need to know about them. We’ll take a look at what wax melts are, how they work, the benefits of using them, and finally, how to safely use them in your home. So let's get started!
What are Wax Melts?
Wax melts are a type of scented wax that is melted in order to release its fragrance. They are typically made from paraffin wax, but can also be made from beeswax, soy wax, or palm wax.
Wax melts are generally regarded as safe to use around pets and children because they do not produce flames or soot. They are a renter friendly option to candles.
Wax melts can be used in any type of oil burner or tart warmer.
Wax melts are a great way to enjoy your favorite fragrances without having to light a candle.
Paraffin wax is known to release harmful chemicals such as benzene and formaldehyde when lit. In recent years, this has made paraffin a less popular option than soy. This is why Spice & Serenity Candle Co. only produces 100% soy wax melt.
How do you use Wax Melts?
Wax melts are a type of scented oil that you can use to make your home smell nice. They come in a variety of scents and can be used in any type of wax melt burner.
To use wax melts, start by placing one or two cubes into your wax melting burner. Then, turn on the heat source underneath the burner and wait for the wax to melt. Once the wax is melted, the scent will start to fill the room. You can leave the wax melts burning for as long as you like, but be sure to turn off the heat source when you're finished.
Spice & Serenity offer 2-in-1 fragrance warmers which not only work on wax melt but candles as well. These are fragrance warmers that do not use batteries or light bulbs.
When melting wax melts, make sure to use only tea-light warmers or UL-listed electric
warmers approved for wax melts.
Are Wax Melts Safe?
Wax melts are a great way to enjoy your favorite scents without having to use an open flame. But are they safe? Here are four things you need to know about wax melts:
1. Yes, wax melts are safe. When used as directed, they are a safe and effective way to enjoy your favorite fragrances.
2. Make sure to remove packaging before use. Use only in tea-light warmers or UL listed electric
warmers approved for wax melts.
3. Paraffin wax is a petroleum-based product that can release harmful chemicals when burned.
4. If you're concerned about safety, look for wax melts made with soy wax or beeswax. These products will be clearly labeled as such. Our wax melts and candles are made from 100% soy wax.
5. Because phthalates are known to be problematic, many brands, including ours, omit them from their candle and wax melt fragrances. Do not purchase candles or wax melts that contain phthalates.
How Much Do Wax Melts Cost?
Wax melts are a popular alternative to candles and come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and scents. They are typically made from paraffin wax or soy wax and can be used with a standard tealight candle or an electric wax melt warmer.
So, how much do wax melts cost?
Well, that depends on a few factors, including the brand, the size of the melt, the scent, and where you purchase them. For example, our 5.5 oz wax melts are only $10!
What Scents are Popular?
When it comes to choosing a scent for your wax melts, there are a few factors to consider. The most important factor is personal preference. What scents do you enjoy? Do you prefer fruity, floral, or woodsy scents? At times, this can be confusing to decide. Take Spice & Serenity's Discover Your Scent quiz to pick out the scent that is best for you.
