How do you use a wax warmer?
So, how do you use a wax warmer?
For those new to soy wax melts, please read the below for tips on burning and using them:
*Place your burner in a safe, stable situation, away from drafts and anything flammable and also well out of the reach of children or pets.
*Place the soy wax melt pods/pots in the top of a dry burner – do not add water.
*Light a tea light candle in the base of the burner and allow the wax to melt – when melted a delightful aroma will be released into the room.
*Don’t forget to extinguish the tea light candle when leaving the room – never leave it unattended or within reach of children or pets.
*After extinguishing the flame the soy wax melts will cool and it will solidify again, you can either re-use the melt or gently tap the sides of the burner and most times the soy wax melts will pop out.
Save the solid wax and you can then easily experience a variety of fragrances as your mood changes.
*Re-use soy wax melts until no fragrance is released.
*You can also use your soy wax melts without melting them by using them as natural air fresheners – place one on a small piece of baking paper or aluminium foil anywhere in your home.
Using ceramic wax melt burners.
Traditional wax burners are usually ceramic and have a small dish on the top to place the scented wax in and a space underneath the dish to light a tea light candle which will then melt the wax melts.
These types of burners often get the melted wax to a higher temperature and they may release a stronger scent.
How to use electric wax warmers?
Perhaps you’ve seen electric wax warmers and are wondering how they differ from ceramic wax warmers?
Electric warmers will come with a plug that can be plugged into the mains. These may have a cable or they may be the type that has a plug built into the burner. Either way, these warmers heat up via an electric current.
Some people may prefer having these in their home as opposed to burners that use a naked flame such as the well known ceramic tea light burners.
