    Soy Wax Melts - Wax Melts Candles

    What is a Soy Wax Melt?

    Soy wax melts (also known as Wax Tarts or wax melts candles) are not new! But it is fair to say, we believe, that they are not as well-known as soy candles. Soy wax melts are a type of candle that we make from soy wax and a fragrance oil but without a wick. It is for this reason that they are also known as 'wickless candles'. Not only do they add a touch of luxury to your living space, but they also make for a thoughtful and unique gift for friends and loved ones.

    There are many different types of soy wax melts available, and they come in a variety of fragrances. They also come in as many shapes as you can think of from the basic circles and squares to stars, Christmas trees and various animals. You can find soy wax melts that smell like everything from fresh flowers to baked goods. Soy wax melts are a great way to add a touch of fragrance to your home, and they are a more sustainable option than traditional candles.

    Why Soy Wax?

    Soy wax candles and wax melts are made from soybean oil, which is a natural and renewable resource that can be sustainably grown. Soybeans are a crop that is widely cultivated, making soy wax an abundant and environmentally friendly alternative to paraffin wax. The oil is extracted from the soybeans and undergoes a hydrogenation process to turn it into a solid wax.

    Soy wax is known for its clean and even burn. Soy wax has a lower melting point than paraffin candles, which means it burns at a cooler temperature and lasts longer. This means that soy wax offers a longer lasting and more economical option for those who enjoy the cosy ambience of candlelight. More on the benefits of Soy Wax, click here...

    How Long do Soy Wax Melts Last

    Soy wax melts last for as long as the fragrance oil remains in the wax. The fragrance oil will evaporate over time, so the wax melts will eventually lose their scent. The rate at which the fragrance oil evaporates depends on a number of factors, including the type of wax melt, the quality of the fragrance oil, and the temperature of the environment.

    In general, wax melts will last for 4-8 hours, depending on the factors mentioned above. However, some wax melts can last for up to 12 hours or even longer. If you want to get the most out of your wax melts, it is important to store them properly and to avoid exposing them to extreme temperatures.

    Tips for Storing Soy Wax Melts

    • Store them in a cool, dark place.
    • Avoid exposing them to direct sunlight.
    • Keep them away from heat sources, such as ovens and radiators.

    Wax Melt Burners

    How Do I Use Soy Wax Melts? 

    To use soy wax melts, you simply place them in a wax melt burner or an electric warmer (we do not sell electric wax melt warmers). The heat from the burner will melt the wax, releasing the fragrance oil into the air. Soy wax melts can last for several hours, and they can be used in any room of the house. Depending on the size of your wax burner and melts, you usually need to use one or two wax melts to fill a room with fragrance. Place your tealight in the bottom of the wax melt burner and light it. In a short period of time, the wax will melt, and the fragrance will waft around your room. We recommend that you start with one wax melt and if that doesn't produce enough fragrance for your room, try two.

    Soy Wax Tealight Candles

    What is a Tea Light? 

    A soy wax tealight is a small, inexpensive candle, with the candle wax and wick enclosed in a thin casing. Tealights are usually burned inside a wax melt burner with the resultant heat melting the wax melts and releasing fragrance into your room. When you extinguish your tealight, if there is any wax left, it will solidify and can be reused.

    How Long do tealights Burn

    Tealights typically burn for between 3 and 4 hours in ideal conditions. Tealights do come in different sizes and as with all candles, where you burn a tealight can affect its burn time. Tealights that are burned in a drafty environment will burn for a shorter amount of time than tealights that are burned in a calm environment. Our Soy Wax Tealights are hand poured by us and are unscented. We use natural sustainable soy wax for our tealight wax which is vegan friendly, contains no animal products and it is not tested on animals.

    Soy Wax Melts Safety

    It is always important to treat your soy wax melts safely and with care. Please note the follow candle care advice... 

    • Never leave a burning tealight and wax melt burner unattended.
    • Place the wax melt burner on a stable surface away from flammable objects.
    • Keep the tealights and wax melts burner out of reach of children and pets.
    • Extinguish the tealights before going to bed or leaving the house.
    • Do not place tealights and wax melts burners too close together.
