What Are Scented Wax Melts

Feb 9, 2022

Scented wax melts have been popular for some time now, however there are lots of us that haven't used them yet, or simply don't know how to use them.

If you've been tempted to get some but don't quite get how amazing they are...let us help you...


Scented wax melts are little scented pieces of wax that are melted in a warmer. The warmer heats and melts the wax, and as it melts it fills your home with gorgeous scents.


In our online store, we sell a range of soy scented wax melts with gorgeous fragrances such as English Pear & Freesia or Clean Cotton.

How do I use my Scented Wax Melts


Scented wax melts work by releasing the fragrance oil in the wax, once the wax is melted. these simple steps will help you to use your wax melts safely:

  • Take your scented wax melt and place in your warmer or burner.

  • Light your tea light or turn on your heated burner if it is electric.
  • When you are finished, simply blow out the tea light or turn off the heat source and the wax will solidify until you are ready to use it again.
  • Once the wax starts to lose it scent, you simply remove and replace with a fresh scented wax melt.

How Long Do Scented Wax Melts Last


Willowscent scented wax melts are 13g each and should throw out a scents for approx 8+ hours.

Just like candles, the throw of your scented wax melts will depend on a number of factors.


Burn time has an impact on candle quality. Likewise, the melt time of scented wax melt will impact the melts hot throw. if you are continuously melting your melt, you can expect that you will get through the scent faster.


A candle uses a wick to slowly draw up wax as a fuel for the flame. However, a melt dissolves into a complete pool of melt wax. This makes it easier and faster to melt through the scent.
