How do wax melts work?
One of the most common questions I am asked is "How do you use wax melts", they're new, they're trendy and they're affordable so people are fascinated by them.
In order to use wax melts you need a wax melt burner or also known as a wax melt warmer. These come in two different styles; electric ones and wax melt burners which use a tealight to produce heat.
Once you have a warmer, you simply place your wax melts in the top of the wax burner and then turn it on.
Now you can sit back, enjoy the beautiful scent.

How to change wax melts?
It is common for people to see the wax melted and wonder, how? To remove wax melts it is actually very simple. You need to allow the wax to cool and solidify. Once its solid you can simply remove the wax with a knife and a tissue to wipe up the excess.
Tip: You can turn the burner on for a few minutes before attempting to remove the wax and usually it will just pop straight out.
When should I change my wax melts?
This one is quite simple. Just remove them when they are no longer producing a scent.
