    Wax Melts Today

    Wax Melts are a type of scented wax that are melted in a warmer to release their fragrance into the air. They are a popular alternative to candles, as they are less messy and easier to use. Wax melts come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and fragrances, and can be found at most home goods stores.

    Wax Melts History

    The history of wax melts is a long and winding one. The first wax melts were likely created by candlemakers who were looking for a way to use up leftover wax. These early wax melts were simply pieces of candle wax that were melted and poured into molds. They were not scented and did not have the same level of fragrance as modern wax melts.

    The first scented wax melts were created in the early 1900s. These wax melts were made with essential oils and were often sold in small tins. They were a popular choice for people who wanted to add a touch of fragrance to their homes but did not want to burn candles.

    Wax melts became more popular in the 1970s, when they were marketed as a more environmentally friendly alternative to candles. Wax melts do not produce smoke or soot, and they can be melted in a variety of warmers, including electric warmers and tea lights.

    Today, wax melts are a popular choice for people who want to add a touch of fragrance to their homes. They are available in a wide variety of fragrances, and can be found at most home goods stores. Wax melts are a convenient and affordable way to add a touch of luxury to your home.
