Wax melts are quickly gaining popularity as an alternative to traditional candles. They are a wax-based product that slowly melts away in a wax melt warmer, releasing a pleasant fragrance into the air as they melt. Wax melts come in a variety of fragrances, shapes and sizes. While many people are still unfamiliar with wax melts, we believe they are a great option for a number of reasons. In this blog post, we will explore the benefits of wax melts and why you should use them.
What Are The Benefits Of Wax Melts?
- Wax Melts Are Safer Than Candles
Candles are a great source of light and fragrance, but they are an open flame. which might not be ideal for everyone. Wax melts, on the other hand, are a safer alternative to candles. Wax melts are heated with a low flame or usually by electricity via a bulb, which eliminates the safety risk of open flames. If you have children or pets in your home, wax melts are a safer option than candles.

- Wax Melts Can Be Used Longer Than Candles
Unlike candles that shouldn't be burned for longer than 3-4 hours per session, wax melts can stay lit for a longer period of time. A single cube can easily throw scent for 8+hours making them ideal for longer scent sessions. In addition, if you are looking for a more cost-effective fragrance option, wax melts are a great choice.
