Our Wax Melts

What is a wax melt?

Wax melts are scented pieces of wax. They can come in various different shapes and sizes.

A wax melt can give off a slight scent when cold; however, they are designed to be slowly warmed using a wax melt burner.

Our wax melts work best in a tea light burner but can also be used with an electric burner.

We stock a variety of wax melt burners which work perfectly with our wax - CLICK HERE to shop them!

What wax do you use for your wax melts?

We use 100% pure soy wax.

Which is additive free, biodegradable and also vegan friendly!

Can I use your wax melts/home fragrance around my children or pets?

They are! But whilst our wax melts and home fragrance are safe to use around both children and pets, we would recommend keeping these out of their reach.

If you wish to view any of our ingredients included within our wax melts and other home fragrance items, please visit the product description and click on the tab either stating CLP or Ingredients.

Is the wax melt packaging recyclable?

Yes! Our wax melt packaging is made from 85% recycled plastic and is also 100% recyclable.

To encourage recycling of our packaging we have made our labels with easy-peel stickers! So once you've finished with the wax melt, you can peel off the sticker, rinse out the clamshell and pop it straight into your recycling!

Easy peasy!

Using Our Wax Melts

How should I burn my wax melts?

Our wax melts can be used both in tealight and electric burners.

However to enjoy the best from our wax melts we highly recommend a tealight burner. This is because they reach a much higher temperature than most electric burners on the market. This in turn means the scent will be stronger and more noticable.

How long can I burn a segment of wax?

Our wax melts are fragranced to the highest percentage which means you can get at least 60+ hours of amazing fragrance from one snap bar!

Pretty amazing if we do say so ourselves!

But with that being said, you can change your wax melt as frequently as you like!

We recommend only burning your wax melt at 4 hour increments to get the most of the scent. Please also ensure you are using a 4 hour tealight.

Why is my wax melt smoking?

As long as the smoke is clear or white, this is nothing to worry about and is actually a good sign of a good wax fragrance! The smoke is actually vapour and is the fragrance oil burning out and giving you a great fragrance throw.

However if you are worried please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss further.

How do I change my wax melt?

Once you feel the fragrance has gone from your wax or you just fancy a change, there are a few different methods you can use to change your wax melt.

Our preferred method is to pop a tealight under the burner as normal for around 30 seconds, putting a small amount of pressure on the wax melt, this should slide right out of the burner.

We then recommend giving your burner a quick wipe with some tissue or a cotton pad and then you are good to go!

Alternatively if you wish to change your wax melt when you wax is already burnt down in the burner, you can blow out the candle and soak up the wax with tissue or a cotton pad. However please be careful as the wax will still be warm!

If you wish to clean your burner with water, please ensure that the burner is fully dry before you next use this as any if any remnants of water are left behind this can affect the next wax you decide to burn.
