Wax melts burners are super simple to use, look nice in your home and create a cosy atmosphere at the end of a long day. If you’re a fan of wax melts, chances are you’re already a pro when it comes to using your burner, but let’s go over it again for any wax melt beginners out there.
Step 1: Select your wax melt
There’s plenty of wax melts to choose from here at Wax By B. We use our own unique blend of natural soy wax, along with vegan oils and biodegradable glitters.
We have a wide range of scents, so whether you like musk, floral, fresh, sweet or perfume- there’s so much choice!
Step 2: Put your wax melt in your burner
Depending on what product you go for and how intense you want the scent to be, snap off 1 or 2 blocks and place them in the dish at the top of your wax melt burner.
Step 3: Turn on your wax melt melter
If you’re using an electric warmer, there should be a switch or button to turn it on. If you’re using a tea light warmer, simply light your tea light and pop it into the designated hole below the dish.
Once you’ve got your wax melts burners on the go, the wax will slowly melt to release a beautiful aroma.
Your tea light should put itself out after 4 hours, so you may need to replace it. Some electric warmers come with built-in timers, however, if yours does not, we recommend purchasing a timer plug so you don’t forget to turn it off.
If you decide to only burn your wax melt for an hour or so, you can simply let the wax harden and re-burn at a later time.
Step 4: Remove the wax and clean your burner
If you’ve burnt your wax melt and are thinking “why doesn’t this smell anymore?” you may be experiencing a case of nose-blindness, or more likely, it’s time to change your wax melt.
So how do you empty a wax burner? Firstly, make sure your burner is cool to touch. Next, there are a few methods you can use to empty your burner. Some people like to burn the wax for a few minutes until it’s in a liquid form, soak it up using cotton balls and discard.
Others will turn on the burner for a moment until the wax has loosened slightly, scoop it out and pop it in the bin.
Once you’ve removed your wax, wipe the burner dish down with either a paper towel or damp cloth. We don’t recommend using cleaning products as this may give off harmful gases when burning.
