Wax melts and tarts have recently been seen moving into major retail stores. However, not everyone is familiar with this candle alternative, leaving customers asking, “How do you use wax melts?"
Candles are great for their smell and their ambiance; however, there are times when you don’t want to keep track of the flame or having to trim the wick. Wax melts, cubes, and tarts are meltable wax chunks that are warmed to release scent. To make this process easy, we have broken it down into a few simple steps:
#1. Find a Wax Melt or Tart Warmer
Using wax melts, tarts, or cubes requires a wax warmer. Wax melt or tart warmers come in a variety of shapes, styles, and designs. It’s imperative to use a warmer/burner specifically designed for wax melts, because any other type of warmer can reach temperatures much higher than designed for your wax melts, and this will quickly burn out your scent.

#2. Place a Wax Melt Inside the Warmer
To use your wax melts, cubes, or tarts, you need to check to see whether your wax is already broken apart into smaller sizes. If your wax melts come in the form of wax cubes, break off a piece (approximately 1 oz) and place it inside the warmer. For wax cubes, try not to use more than one melt at a time. If you are using smaller melts or our new wax melt bears, you can use 2–3 bears depending on your desired fragrance intensity. Once you have placed the wax melts in the burner, do not add water or oil to your wax melts.
#3. Turn on Your Warmer
To begin using your scented wax melts, cubes, or tarts, you will first need to turn your wax warmer on. If you have an electric warmer, Make sure not to move your warmer when it is holding a container of hot wax.
#4. Remove Your Wax
Once the wax has cooled, you will either need to scrape the wax out of your melting dish, discard the liner, or—if you have a warmer with a silicone dish—gently nudge your dish from behind to pop the wax out! Just be sure not to discard used wax down the drain. To clean your wax warmer, take a paper towel and wipe down the area where you inserted the wax. For an easy clean, you can use a drop of baby oil. You can also use a warm, moist, soapy sponge or soft cloth to clean the dish inside. Wipe down with a soft cloth. Never use abrasive cleaners that can cause wear and tear to your wax warmers.
