How to use wax melts at home

what are wax melts?

Wax melts are getting more and more popular in the home fragrance world because they last longer than candles. They also come without the added burning smell as they don't need a wick to melt the wax and release the fragrance, they just need heat, whether that is from a tealight candle, hot plate, or light bulb.

how to use our wax melts

If you’re looking for a simple way to fill your home with beautiful scents, wax melts are a great option. Simply break off a segment of wax from one of our Aromatherapy wax melt bars and pop it in your wax warmer or burner dish. Then depending on what method you use, you would add a 4-hour tealight or plug your warmer in and switch it on.

Don't have any of these? Take a look at our 2-in-1 Electric Wax Warmer or our stylish Pearlised Ceramic Oil Burner. You can also get electric warmers with a light bulb built in to warm the dish above. Unfortunately, we do not supply this type of warmer, but they can be found elsewhere online.

Each Lib's Aromatherapy wax melt bar has 5 segments, each giving you approximately 16 hours of fragrance (4 sessions when used with 4-hour tealights). Once your tealight burns out, and the wax hardens, you can re-melt the wax again and again with another tealight until the fragrance wears out.

how to empty and clean your wax warmer

Once your wax has worn out and lost its fragrance replace it with a new segment. Simply remove the hardened wax and wipe away any excess. Most of the time the hardened wax will just pop out with a little push and you can dispose of it in the household rubbish.

If you do have trouble removing the old hardened wax from the dish, simply warm the wax for 30 seconds from beneath with a tealight, slide the wax out and into the bin and wipe away the excess with a tissue.

Our 2-in-1 Electric Wax Warmer has a dish that can be lifted from the top for easy cleaning.

If you wash your warmer dish or oil burner, please do not use scourers as this can damage the glaze which protects the ceramic from absorbing the melted wax. If this happens you may not be able to use it again.
