Wax Melt Warmers

Frequently Asked Questions

CAN YOU USE WAX MELTS IN AN ELECTRIC BURNER?

Our wax melts are frequently requested if they can be used in an electric wax burner, such as a scentsy or Yankee candle wax burner.

Because not all wax melts completely melt in these burners, this is a regular question. This is due to the fact that electric wax burners do not get as hot as tealight burners, and some wax only melts at greater temperatures.

The good news is that we've tried our wax melts in a variety of electric burners and are pleased to report that they all melt and release their scent nicely!

IS IT POSSIBLE TO USE WAX MELTS IN AN OIL BURNER?

One of the most frequently asked questions we receive is if wax melts can be used in an oil burner.

The height and how hot the burner dish becomes are the key differences between an oil burner and a wax burner.

Oil burners are generally smaller in height, and the dish reaches far higher temperatures than in a wax burner. These burners should not be used for wax melts because the dish and wax could overheat, cracking the dish. This is a fire hazard since the wax could spill into the tealight's flame, causing a fire.

The height of the burner is the greatest method to tell the difference between a wax and an oil burner. A wax melts burner should be at least 10cm tall, with a gap of at least 6.5cm between the flame and the inside of the wax burner.

HOW DO I USE WAX MELTS SAFELY IN A WAX MELT BURNER?

When using our wax melts, please observe the safety guidelines below at all times:

  • Always use a burner intended for wax melts.
  • Before using your burner, inspect it for hairline cracks or chips. Burners with cracks or chips should never be used since they can cause a fire.
  • In your burner, place 1 regular-sized unscented tealight and leave the water out.
  • Always keep out of reach of children and pets at all times.
  • When burning, keep an eye on it. A lit tealight should never be left unattended.
  • Keep clear from draughts.
  • Always pay heed to the packaging's safety warnings.
  • Always place your burner on a level, heat-resistant surface away from potential fire hazards.
  • Before putting wax in your burner, remove any packaging.
  • Use the right amount of wax for your wax burner's size. Do not overfill the container.
  • While your wax burner is burning, do not move it.
