Wax Melt Waxes
Wax melts are a very popular flameless candle option on the market now. Wax melts allow to you enjoy the fragrance of a candle without a wick or flame so it's considered much safer than a burning candle. Melts are popular for dorm rooms, hospitals or any facilities that do not allow candles and for spaces that have kids or pets too.
Wax melts are mostly made in multi-cavity clamshells and then one or more are popped out and placed into a wax melt burner as needed. The burner heats the wax and the melted wax provides a hot scent throw that delivers the fragrance in the room. The scent from wax melts typically lasts about as long as the same size candle would burn and the remaining wax is discarded when it no longer has a fragrance.
The ideal wax to use for melts should be hard enough to hold a shape in the mold or clamshell but soft enough to melt down quickly when placed into the burner. Here are our top choices of waxes for making your own melts.
