How to use wax melts.
Placing 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 melts in the top of the burner.
Burners should be dry when in use and no water should be added to the wax.
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.
