Choose your wax melt

Wax melts come in various shapes, sizes, and fragrances, allowing you to customise your scent experience. Select a wax melt that complements your preferences and the ambience you want to create in your space.

Prepare your wax burner

There are two main types of wax burners: electric and tealight. Choose the type of wax burner that best suits your needs.

Electric wax burner

Plug your electric wax burner into an electrical outlet, ensuring it is on a stable, heat-resistant surface. Ensure it is away from drafts, flammable materials, and pets or children.

Tealight wax burner

Place your tealight wax burner on a stable, heat-resistant surface and away from drafts, flammable materials, and pets or children. Insert a tealight candle into the designated holder.

Place the wax melt in the wax burner

Remove the wax melt from its packaging and place it in the top dish of your wax burner. You may need to break larger wax melts into smaller pieces to fit into the dish. If you're using an electric wax burner, ensure the wax melt doesn't exceed the maximum capacity indicated by the manufacturer.

Turn on the wax burner

Electric wax burner

Turn on the electric wax burner using the switch or dial, and adjust the temperature according to the manufacturer's instructions.

Tealight wax burner

Light the tealight candle using a long-reach lighter or match, and carefully place it in the designated holder. The heat from the candle will gradually melt the wax melt, releasing its fragrance into the room.

Enjoy the fragrance

As the wax melt heats, it will release its scent, filling your space with a delightful aroma. The fragrance will typically last for several hours, depending on the size and quality of the wax melt.

Turn off the wax burner and clean up

Once the fragrance has dissipated, or you wish to change scents, turn off your wax burner.

Electric wax burner

Switch off the electric wax burner and unplug it from the electrical outlet. Allow it to cool completely before cleaning or handling.

Tealight wax burner

Extinguish the tealight candle using a candle snuffer or gently blow it out. Allow the wax burner to cool completely before cleaning or handling.

To remove the remaining wax from the dish, wait until it has solidified, then gently push on one side of the wax or use a butter knife to lift it out. If there is residual wax, you can use a paper towel or soft cloth to wipe it clean. Ensure the dish is completely clean before using a new wax melt.

Using wax melts with electric and tealight wax burners is a simple and enjoyable way to fill your home with delightful fragrances. Following these easy steps can create a cosy and inviting atmosphere in your space. Always follow safety instructions and manufacturer guidelines to ensure the best experience possible.
