Odds & Sods – star collection

£2.50

A random selection of 4 star mini melts which are the result of additional raw materials at the end of a production run. Whenever you embark on a batch of candles or melts there is a need to build in some capacity to allow for spillage or where wax will set up in the pouring vessel. All to the finished items are poured to a special weigh, usually to the last the gram but I generally over calculate by around 3% per pour so as to have a little spare if needed. If I’ve manged to hit whatever container I’m aiming at and not the counter-top then the extra wax is poured into molds instead but each piece of the same high standard as the original product it was intended for.

They will be a mixture of fragrances but each box or bag contains all the allergen information of any fragrances likely to appear. If you are sensitive to any particular scent then let me know and I’ll tailor a box just for you.

Place 2-3 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. our star mini melts last around 6 hours per melt.

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.
