Many people love using candles and wax melts. Walking into your home and having that warm and welcoming aroma in the winter, or the fresh and fruity aroma in the summer.
Pet owners often use wax melts and candles to mask the no so sweet smell of our furry babies when they have been playing in the pond, or just having a smelly night after pinching some sneaky snacks they shouldn’t have had.
These days there are many ways to fragrance the home, but not all ways are the safer way. Especially with pets around, it’s a great idea to steer away from naked flames. So before you reach for a candle or a tealight burner, ask yourself – Have you ever tried using wax melts instead?
What are wax melts?
Wax melts are scented wax made into shapes or in the case of Scentsy wax made in the shape of a classic Scentsy clam. Our wax is a food grade paraffin wax, made to be warmed rather than burned over a flame. Each Scentsy wax melt bar is loaded with essential and synthetic oils dependent on th fragrance. A wax melt has no wick since it is not made to be burned like a candle making a Scentsy wax melt a much safer option.
How do I use wax melts?
Using wax melts is super simple. Once you have chosen your fragrance you simply snap off a cube or two of your best fragrance and pop them into your wax warmer dish. As the wax warmer starts to melt the wax melt, the fragrance will release into the air. When you use a Scentsy wax warmer, no wax will evaporate, so once you have finished you may switch of your warmer and allow the wax to cool an set. You can re use the same wax melt until you can do longer smell the fragrance, then simply use cotton clean ups or cotton wool to soak the melted wax and throw away.
What are the best wax melts and which ones should I avoid?
When it comes to safety it is always best to avoid any wax melts made to be burned over a flame. When it comes to the safety of your loved ones, you want to use a wax melt that isn’t going to involve a naked flame. Since a Scentsy wax warmer and wax melt isn’t going to evaporate, you can be assured your family can enjoy safer fragrance with no nasties.
What makes wax melts different than candles?
If you are trying to decide whether to buy candles or wax melts, here is something that might help. Wax melts allow you to get creative. You can easily experiment with them by combining two or more different fragrances to come up with a custom fragrance. For example, you could combine a cube of Jammy Time and a cube of Just Breathe to create your own custom fragrance. When using wax melts you can create your own custom fragrance time after time. We call it Scentsy mixology and if you check out Pinterest, there are so many recipes and we would love to hear what mixology you have created.
