New To Wax Melts? Here's How To Use Them

Over time, we've been asked this question constantly - and don't worry, it isn't a silly question! Once upon a time, homes were fragranced by candles or that ghastly air freshener - so we get it; wax melts are a brand new concept to a lot of people.

"So what is a wax melt and how do I use it?"

In their most basic of forms, wax melts are basically wax, fragranced with a scent - they come in different forms, such as Wax Melt Shot Pots which can be broken in half or Snap Bars, where you break a piece off at a time.

They are everything you get with a candle - just without the wick or the jar. 

The simplicity of a wax melt means you get benefits, including price, often a greater scent throw than traditional candles, and the ease to change between scents. 

To use a Wax Melt, you need a Wax Warmer - these are either electric or lit with a tealight (often ceramic/glass). Depending on which of these options you use, the idea is that you heat the dish at the top - either by means of a bulb in an electric warmer, or a tealight in a more traditional warmer). The heat from the Warmer gently melts the wax, releasing the fragrance.

You can then sit back and enjoy the fragrance - we recommend for a maximum of four hours - and can re-melt the wax until you cannot smell the fragrance.

To give an indication as to the cost benefit of Wax Melts over Candles, a Nuscents Wax Melt Snap Bar will release a stronger fragrance for around 80 hours.
