Wax melts are small blocks of wax, it is made of the same exact material as a candle. The method of using both is very different. A candle is required to be burned to release its aromas, while wax melts require to be melted. To use a wax melt, a wax burner is required, you simply ignite a tea light. The heat from the tea light will cause the wax to melt. There are also electrical wax melt burners that heat up the wax without an open flame making this a much safer product to use in the presence of children. Be sure to place the electric wax burner somewhere safe and secure. Using an electrical wax melt burner is a much more convenient way of using your wax melts as it is all done for you by the touch of a button.
Benefits of using wax melts
Wax melts are a great way of providing natural aromas in your living space, and to skip the use of household chemicals to fragrance your home. The use of wax melts can completely change the feel in your home, the presence of natural aromas will help you relax.
Many people use scented candles to provide natural aromas in their homes. Using wax melts instead can be much more cost-effective, as the scent within wax melts would last much longer than of a scented candle.
Avoid using paraffin wax
Most scented candles and cheap wax melts contain paraffin which is a concentrate of petroleum. People that have asthma or lung problems will get affected by paraffin in the air, and they will often react in shortness of breath and headaches. I would recommend using soy wax, as it contains no paraffin and is made of a more natural ingredient. Try to use wax melts that been scented with essential oils.
Using wax melts with meditation and yoga
People that practices yoga or meditation will often use incense sticks to bring natural aromatic smell to help them focus and be more relaxed. Using wax melts can be more effective especially if you are using soy wax melt, the aromatic smell is cleaner and smoother. Some people are sensitive to the use of incense sticks, using wax melts is a great alternative.
