Wax Melts - What are they?

Wax Melts

What is a Wax Melt?

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. Wax melts are small, pieces of wax blended with fragrance oils but without a wick. They come in many different shapes - squares, circles, hearts, stars, clamshells and even Christmas trees just to name a few! They are melted in a warmer and as the wax melts, it fills up your room with the fragrance of the wax melt. The warmer can be electric or it can be a "tealight". 

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.

Chandlery - Handmade Candles, Reed Diffusers, Wax melts

A Chandlery? - "a handmade maker and seller of tallow, wax candles, and also usually soap". A chandlery was originally the office in a wealthy medieval household responsible for wax, candles and soaps as well as the room in which the candles were kept.



How Do I Use Wax Melts?

Using a wax melt is very straightforward. Take your wax melt and place it on the top of the wax warmer, see images below. Depending on the size of your wax warmer 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 warmer 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.

What is a Tea Light? 

A tealight is a small, inexpensive candle, with the candle wax and wick enclosed in a thin metal casing. Tealights are usually burned inside a wax melt holder 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.
