Place a wax melt inside the bowl of the warmer. If the melts are small and the warmer’s bowl is comparatively large, add another melt of the same fragrance. Light the wick of a tealight candle and place it in the warmer in the area beneath the bowl.
Using wax melts, tarts, or cubes requires a wax warmer. It’is imperative to use a warmer or burner specifically designed for wax melts and not one designed for burning essential oils as the flame height is too close to the bowl and can reach temperatures much higher than designed for your wax melts, and this will quickly burn out your scent.
Most of our large wax melts will produce a strong fragrance for 10-15 hours of warming time before needing to be replaced but limit your melt time to 4 hours in any one session allowing the wax to set between sessions.
You may see smoke coming from your burner. This isn’t smoke but evaporation from the fragrance oil contained in the wax. Normally this will settle down after 5-10 minutes but check that your warmer isn’t getting too hot and, if the bowl of your warmer is large enough, adding another melt can some times reduce this vapour as the extra wax reduces the temperature of the bowl.
Once your melt has used up the fragrance allow it to cool and wipe or let it set. If set adding heat via a tealight for a few minutes will loosen the hardened wax pool enough for you to slide it free of the bowl. At this point you need to dispose of it responsibly or you can save all you used melts and make your own candle or tea lights.
