Above all, they can be stored in a bag and even in the pocket due to their small size. More importantly, they are environmentally friendly, long-lasting, and flame-free, making them first choice in home fragrance. If you consider trying them for the first time, the following reasons will tell you why you should bring this home fragrance to your home.
1: Wax melts are flame-free
Luxury candles look great, but its exposed flame has a risk of the fire accident. Wax warmers require power while candles require a flame. The wax melts cubes can be warmed on the wax warmers that contain built-in heater or light bulb. This ceramic heater can be located inside the warmer enough to warm the wax tart and release the pleasant scent in just five to ten minutes.
2: Longer Lasting Fragrance
Most people ask either wax melts are stronger than scented candles are not. Research suggests that candles that release 7% more scent leads to wick issues and burst upon lighting. On the other hand, wax melts can hold around 10 to 12% fragrance. It has a non-toxic and cleaner burn that releases the non-tainted scent. Moreover, this scent lasts longer.
3: No Soot
Candles leave soot, that’s why we put them in a safe place where no shelves or ceiling close to it when lighting candles. The curtains or ceilings will be discolored over time due to the candle soot deposit. Furthermore, this soot can cause respiratory problems when you inhale it. The more common respiratory problem is breathlessness. Above all, this can be a catalyst of stroke, cancer and heart attack.
4: Wax Melts are Long-Lasting
Wax melts come with more burning time than candles. They’re long-lasting. Studies suggest that wax melts absorb the heat more slowly. They can release scent without being heated or burning. As a result, the evaporation process becomes slow, which makes it last longer. Moreover, traditional candles require a flame to burn-means fragrance will be released when the wax is heated at high temperature. That’s why; candles are likely to evaporate at a faster rate.
5: You don't need a flame to melt a wax melt.

Some wax warmers heat the wax using the votive or tea light while others are electric wax warmer. All you need to plug your wax warmer into an outlet. The wax will be heated on the warmer tray.
