Wax Melts are fragrant cubes of wax without a wick. They are used in Candle Warmers, which melt the wax, usually by a high-intensity lightbulb. As the wax melts, the fragrance contained in the wax is released into the room.
Wax melts are very popular and many prefer them over open flame candles, such as:
Melts heat up quickly, thereby emitting aroma faster than candles.
Melts do not have an open flame and do not produce any smoke if burned properly.
You can control the strength of the aroma in your home depending upon how many melts you place in your burner at one time.
Melts provide an easy way to have a different scents in different rooms of your home.
The aroma last longer since the the wax melt isn't being consumed as a burning flame candle would.
Many facilities (apartments, senior centers, etc.) don't allow open flame candles. Wax melts are a perfect substitution.
