For all you savvy home fragrance enthusiasts, the team at Wicks + Scents has a few tips to help your wax melts go the extra mile so that you can enjoy long-lasting scents. Say goodbye to quick burns and hello to extended aromatic bliss. Let's dive right in!
1. The Perfect Spot Matters
Avoid drafty areas, which can make your wax melts burn faster. Opt for warm, cozy corners away from air conditioning vents and windows. Doing so will help your fragrance linger and better captivate your senses.
2. Patience is a Virtue
Resist the urge to crank up the heat on your wax warmer once you pop in your wax melt. Let the wax melt gently arm up and release its fragrance. By being patient, you ensure your melts melt (pun intended) slowly and steadily, making them last longer.
3. Size Does Matter
Don't underestimate the power of portion control with wax melts. Cut or break your melts into smaller pieces to control the intensity of your scent. Less wax facilitates slower melting and more hours of aromatic bliss. Tailor your fragrance to your mood.
4. Clean That Dish
Clean your wax warmer regularly and per the instructions of the manufacturer. Old wax residue can interfere with the scent release. A clean slate ensures your wax melts work at their best.
5. Reuse and Recycle
Don't toss out your wax melts once they've given their all. Pop the plate in the freezer for a few minutes, and the used wax will shrink, making it easy to remove. Then, store it in a labeled bag or container for a mix-and-match fragrance experience.
6. Slow Burn with Soy
One fantastic hack for making your wax melts last longer is to choose soy wax melts. Soy wax burns slower than paraffin, giving you more hours of aromatic enjoyment. The slower burn means you can savor the scent without rushing through your melts.
7. Bonus Tip
If your current wax warmer isn't delivering the desired results, upgrading to a new one can improve your wax melting experience. We share this bonus tip not as a green light to splurge on a home accessory item but as savvy advice for enjoying your fragrance of choice.
So, there you have it, our top tips to get the most out of your wax melts. Here’s to making your home feel like a fragrant oasis. Happy melting!
