Are Wax Melts Better Than Candles

Yes, wax melts are better than candles. Compared to candles, wax melts are more affordable, safer, healthier, environmentally friendly, long-lasting, fragrant, and handy. Without a doubt, they are worthwhile!

Wax melts have witnessed a boom in popularity in recent years, especially to clean influencers and celebrities like Mrs Hinch and Stacey Solomon.

Tealight wax burners or electric wax warmers are used to warm scented wax tarts, melts, cubes, and hearts. 

The built-in heaters provide just enough heat to warm wax melts, tarts, and cubes, allowing the smell to be released in as little as 5 minutes.

Why Use Wax Melts over Candles

Here are reasons to consider introducing wax melts into your life:

1. A wax melt has a longer burn time than a candle

Many factors may affect the average burn time for candles and wax melts. Some of these factors include the wax type, the amount of fragrance oil, flash point, and the size of the candle (have you seen our woodwick candles?) or wax melt. 

Some people choose wax melts over candles for their burn time. The average burn time of a 30cl candle jar is up to 60 hours.

Our wax melts are strong and long-lasting, so you can typically get up to 18 hours of fragrance from just one heart wax melt. We recommend that you change your wax melt once the wax melt no longer smells.

2. Wax melts are cheaper than candles

Due to the longevity of wax melts, they work out much better value for money than candles. With our wax melts, you only need to use half a heart at a time, and this can provide up to 9 hours of scent!  

3. Wax melts are more convenient than candles

Wax melts and electric warmers are often allowed in offices, apartments, and other places where candles with an open flame are prohibited. Wax melting is highly endorsed by parents or guardians who worry about their children or pets being around an open flame.

Wax melts come in cubes, squares, hearts and other shapes, making them easy to break apart and transport. Perfect for use on burners like the himalayan salt wax melt burner

4. Control your scent with wax melts

You can easily monitor the strength of your fragrance with wax melts since they come in small sizes and shapes so that you can reduce or add more wax, depending on your scent preference.

5. Wax melts are fun!

One advantage of picking wax melts over candles is mixing various wax melts to create a custom scent. Place the two pieces into your wax warmer simultaneously. Once the wax melts, it will blend the two fragrances.
