Wax Melts Care Instructions

Proper care and maintenance of your wax melts are essential to ensure a long-lasting and enjoyable fragrance experience. Follow these simple instructions to get the most out of your wax melts:

Electric Warmer:

  1. Use a Suitable Wax Warmer: Choose a wax warmer that is specifically designed for wax melts. Avoid using candle warmers or other devices not intended for wax melts, as they may not provide the optimal temperature for melting the wax.
  2. Start with a Clean Wax Warmer: Before using a new wax melt or switching to a different fragrance, make sure to clean your wax warmer. Remove any residual wax and wipe the warmer with a clean cloth or paper towel.
  3. Break Off a Portion: Wax melts are typically divided into individual portions. Break off one portion and place it in the wax warmer. Avoid overfilling the warmer, as this can lead to overflow and potential damage.
  4. Heat the Wax: Turn on the wax warmer and allow the heat to melt the wax. The fragrance will gradually release as the wax melts. Enjoy the beautiful aroma filling your space.
  5. Monitor the Wax: While the wax is melting, keep an eye on it to ensure it doesn't overheat or burn. If you notice any smoke or an unusual smell, immediately turn off the warmer and let it cool before removing the wax.
  6. Replace the Wax: Once the fragrance has dissipated or you no longer wish to use the current wax melt, allow the wax to cool and harden. Then, remove the hardened wax from the warmer and replace it with a new portion.
  7. Store Properly: When not in use, store your wax melts in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. This will help preserve their fragrance and prevent them from melting or becoming misshapen.
  8. Experiment with Combinations: Feel free to mix and match different wax melts to create unique fragrance combinations. Get creative and discover your favorite scent blends.
  9. Avoid Water: Keep your wax melts away from water or any liquids. Water can cause the wax to become soggy and lose its fragrance.
  10. Keep Out of Reach of Children and Pets: Wax melts can be tempting to curious little hands and paws. Ensure they are placed in a safe location where children and pets cannot access them.

Tea Light Warmers:

  1. Choose High-Quality Wax Melts: Start with high-quality wax melts that are made from premium ingredients. Look for wax melts that are hand-poured and crafted with care. These wax melts will provide a longer-lasting fragrance and a cleaner burn.
  1. Use a Clean and Dry Burner: Before using your tea light burner, make sure it is clean and dry. Remove any leftover wax residue from previous uses. This will prevent any unwanted scents from mixing and ensure a pure fragrance experience.
  1. Place Wax Melt in the Burner: Place 1-2 wax melts depending on the size in the top dish of your tea light burner. Make sure the wax melt is centered and not touching the sides of the dish. This will allow for an even and efficient melt.
  1. Use Unscented Tea Lights: When using a tea light burner, always use unscented tea lights. Scented tea lights can interfere with the fragrance of the wax melt and create an unpleasant scent combination.
  1. Allow Wax Melt to Fully Melt: Light the tea light and allow the wax melt to fully melt. This usually takes around 20-30 minutes, depending on the size and type of wax melt. Avoid moving or touching the burner while the wax is melting.
  1. Enjoy the Fragrance: Once the wax melt is fully melted, the fragrance will start to fill the room. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the beautiful aroma. Remember to never leave a burning candle unattended.
  1. Replace Wax Melt When Scent Fades: After several hours of use, the scent of the wax melt will start to fade. Once the fragrance is no longer noticeable, it's time to replace the wax melt with a fresh one. Dispose of the used wax melt properly.
  1. Clean the Burner Regularly: To maintain the performance of your tea light burner, clean it regularly. Allow the burner to cool completely before cleaning. Use a soft cloth or paper towel to wipe away any residue. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials.
