What Are Wax Melts & How To Use Them

If you're new to the world of wax melts, you're in for a delightful fragrant treat. Wax melts are a popular and affordable alternative to candles, offering a potent aroma that can transform your living spaces. In this guide, we'll walk you through what wax melts are and how to use them safely and effectively.

What Are Wax Melts?

Wax melts are small, scented pieces of wax that, when gently heated in a suitable burner, release their fragrance into the air. These wax pieces come in various shapes, sizes, and colours, often adorned with decorative details. 

Why Are Wax Melts Popular?

Wax melts have gained popularity for several reasons:

  1. Potent Aromas: Wax melts offer an instant and often much stronger fragrance scent throw compared to candles, making them an excellent choice for scenting larger rooms or areas.
  2. Affordability: They are usually more cost-effective than candles, providing an affordable option to infuse your home or workspace.
  3. Versatility: With wax melts, you can effortlessly swap and change scents to suit your mood and preferences.
  4. Safety: Wax melts can be used in tealight burners or electric warmers, catering to those who prefer to avoid open flames. For the best aroma experience, tealight burners are recommended.

How to Use Wax Melts

Using wax melts is a simple and safe process when done correctly. Here's what you'll need:

  1. A Suitable Burner: This can be a tealight burner or an electric warmer.
  2. Unscented Tealights: If you're not using an electric burner, opt for 4-hour tealights. Avoid maxi/8-hour tealights, as they may burn the fragrance off too quickly and pose safety concerns.
  3. Your Favourite Kascha Candle Co Wax Melts: If you're unsure which scent to start with, consider trying one of our sample collection bags to discover your favourites.

Once you've gathered your supplies, follow these steps:

Place a portion or two of wax into the well of your burner. Start with a single piece to avoid overfilling. If using a tealight burner, light an unscented 4-hour tealight and place it in the burner's bottom section. Allow the wax to melt, as it warms it'll release its delightful fragrance into the room. When you're finished enjoying your wax melts, extinguish the tealight or turn off your electric burner. As the fragrance of your wax melts starts to diminish, replace them with a new scent.
