The New Wax Melt Collection

Wax melts are rapidly growing in popularity - a wax melt can hold it's aroma twice as long as a scented candle because the wax is heated so gently therefore it doesn't evaporate as quickly. They still fill your home with fragrance, as well as providing aromatherapy benefits, but in a much stronger and impactful way. 

What are wax melts?

Wax melts are scented cubes or bars of wax without a wick. They're presented in a bar (a bit like a chocolate bar ready to snap) and a beautiful variety of fragrances. 

They are melted in wax melt warmers to release home fragrance, and can be used to replace candles. You will need a wax melt burner and some unscented tea lights; 4 hour tealights are recommended. 

They're typically cheaper than candles and they come in smaller sizes, so they're a great idea if you're keen to test out a scent before splashing out on a whole candle, diffuser or room fragrance.

How long can you use wax melts for? 

Wax melts keep their aroma longer than scented candles. Each cube can be used as many times as you wish, until all the fragrance has evaporated. Then simply snap another cube and change the wax. Diffusion time is approximately 16-20 hours per cube meaning the whole bar is over 100 hours. We found we could reuse the wax 3-4 times before needing to change it. 

Are wax melts environmentally friendly?

Wax melts are generally considered to be more environmentally friendly than scented candles due to their compact size and durability. Our new range of 100 hour botanical wax melt bars are from The Candle Brand and are vegan and eco friendly as well as smelling amazing! These wax melts are free from paraffin, palm, soy, beeswax, dyes and synthetic additives. Made in Norfolk, UK by a small family business, eco and vegan friendly as well as having a low carbon footprint. 

Are wax melts safe for dogs? 

While many dog owners may want to invest in wax melts to mask the smell of dog in their homes, ingredients like paraffin and benzene could cause serious tummy upsets if ingested. Look for wax melts with all-natural ingredients; the ones we have chosen to stock are pet-safe wax melts.
