Wax Melts Care


Place your melt burner/warmer in a safe, stable situation, away from drafts and anything flammable and also well out of the reach of children. Remove the wax melt from the packaging and place in the top of a dry burner/melter- do not add water!

Place your Wax Melts in a well ventilated, melt approved potpourri or melt burner and never add water. These come in a variety of styles – Some use tea lights or low wattage bulbs and some are electric. Don’t forget to extinguish the tea light candle or turn off the electrical appliance when leaving the room – never leave them unattended or within reach of children!

Never use heat from a stove or use any other non-certified wax melt appliance; they get too hot!

Do not allow the flame from the tea light to touch the underside of the melt bowl (part where the wax melt sits). There should be at least a two inch clearance or it could catch on fire. Some tea light melt burners are not made properly and do not allow enough distance between the flame and the melting bowl. Just because it’s called a melt burner doesn’t mean it’s a SAFE melt burner and there are many unsafe ones on the market. So please remember to check the clearance before purchasing one – clearance isn’t an issue when using electric warmers.

Do not melt the wax if the melting bowl contains less than 1/2″ or 1cm of wax, either add another melt or discard the wax!

When the wax melt has cooled it will solidify again, you can either re-use the wax until the fragrance has been consumed or gently tap the sides of the burner and most times the melted wax will pop out.  If not place the oil burner in the freezer for a short time and try again. You can discard the used wax melt or seal it in a plastic bag to re-use another time

Remember, burning wax melts involves hot melted wax and possibly a candle flame (if using tea light burns); these two things can be very dangerous, so take extreme care and enjoy the wonderful fragrances that are available in wax tarts.
