Wax melts are a wonderful way to bring fragrance to your home or a particular room in your home. However, if you are unfamiliar with wax melts, maybe you have been wondering just how long do wax melts last?
This question of "how long do wax melts last" can in fact be two questions.
Wax melts are typically 'burned' or warmed in a wax melt burner and the wax melts are warmed by one or more tealights. How long do wax melts last depends on a number of issues as described below.
The burn time refers to how long you can burn a wax melt before it stops releasing its fragrance and on average, we expect our wax melts to last between 8-12 hours of scent. On average? There are factors that affect the burn time of any given wax melt, for example,
Each room and each home are different. You will need to experiment with your wax melts - for more fragrance, warmer rooms with more tealights will create more fragrance but the wax melt fragrance will evaporate more quickly.
We consider that wax melts typically have a shelf life (before burning them) of approximately 12 months. If you store your wax melts in a moderate or cool part of your home, they could have a longer shelf life. Keep your wax melts in their original packaging and away from sunlight and heat to avoid a loss of scent.
