Wax melt has become a populair way to create atmosphere, add warmth to a room and spread wonderful scents. However, it is important to realize that melting wax melts goes beyond simply melting a wax melt. Knowing how to properly melt a wax melt is crucial for your safety.
- Place a single wax melt (do not add water) in the well of your electric wax melt warmer or ceramic dish of your wax burner, specifically designed for wax melts, an light an unscented tea light below. Once the wax is warm, it will melt and spread fragrance that will rapidly fill your indoor space.
- Do not burn the wax melts for more than 4 hours at a time. Burn the wax melt on a level, fire resistant surface.
- To reduce risk of injury, keep out of reach for children and pets. Place your burner away from drafts and anything flammable. Never leave your burner unattended.
- Do not overfill the bowl, you can top up once the wax has melted. Do not touch the burner while in us, the burner will get hot and de wax can burn. Allow to cool when finished using.
Removing used wax melts
- If you have turned of you burner/warmer and your wax is still liquid, take two cotton balls, set them in the warmer tray and let it absorb the wax. Discard the cotton balls and wipe away the excess with a paper towel.
- If the wax has been hardened, turn the warmer back on/ relight the tea light for 10-30 seconds. The wax will start melting and loosens in the disk and will be easier to remove the wax as a solid piece. Be sure to wipe away any excess with a paper towel.
