Soy wax melts (also known as Wax Tarts) are not new! But it is fair to say, we believe, that they are not as well-known as candles. Soy wax melts are a type of candle that is made from soy wax and a fragrance oil but without a wick and are also known as 'wickless candles'.
To use soy wax melts, you simply place them in a wax melt burner or warmer. The heat from the warmer 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.
There are many different types of soy wax melts available, and they come in a variety of scents. They also come in as many shapes as you can think of from the basic round and square, 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.
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.
Here are some tips for storing wax melts:
A Candle Chandler? - "a maker and seller of tallow, wax candles, and also usually soap".
We are a modern-day candle chandler, hand pouring soy wax melts using traditional methods and skills but also other fragrance items such as candles, reed diffusers and tealights.
Our luxury range of soy wax melts are made with the finest quality fragrance oils and a natural soy wax specifically designed for making perfect wax melts. This natural soy wax creates smooth, shiny, and frost-free wax melts. It is vegan friendly, contains no animal products and it is not tested on animals.
Using a wax melt is very straightforward. Take your soy wax melt and place it on the top of a wax melt burner, see images below. 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.
A 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.
Tealights typically burn for 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.
All our handmade soy wax tealights are hand poured by us. They can be unscented or infused with premium fragrance oils. 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.
