We recommend swapping out wax melts whenever you can no longer smell the fragrance when the warmer is 'on'. For some cheaper wax melts, this can be as often as every 5-8 hours of burn time. For luxury, high-end melts (including Waxpops), your wax melts can hold up to 20 hours of fragrance. The fragrance of one single wax bar will last 20 hours. In terms of shelf life, you can keep the product for 2 years. Yankee Candle will accept the return so long as the candle is not burned down more than halfway. You can exchange it for another candle, or without the receipt receive store credit for the lowest price charged within the past 30-90 days (different DM's seem to apply different rules for this).
How to make wax melts, tarts, or cubes. Wax Selection: Almost any kind of paraffin or soy wax will work for this. Remove the wax from the heat source and add dye, if desired. Add fragrance oil as desired. After adding dye and fragrance, your wax should be cool enough to go ahead and pour (150-160F) into the molds. Allow to cool, and enjoy.
Here's our guide on what to do with left over candle wax: Create your very own, brand new candle! Lubricate a sticky drawer or squeaky door hinge. Get a fire going. Infuse your home with the final lingering scents. Use it for budget skating wax. Seal up shoelace frays. Seal your letters with a personal touch.
To prevent tunneling, burn your candle one hour for every inch in diameter the first time you light it. Fun fact: Your candle has a memory. The wax will only melt as far as it did the first time you burned the candle.
Although fire danger from an open flame is eliminated, you have good reason not to leave a candle warmer unattended or burning for extended amounts of time. These include overheating, electrical wire damage, trip hazard from the chord, electrocution from water spills and smoke from a candle too near the heating lamp.
Also, it's so much safer than burning candles. But this is why people can use the wax melts and not have issues, allergies. Because only the scent disapears, not the wax, meaning nothing is entering the air you breath, chemicals, rather than using candles.
So when the wax melts, the chemicals are released into the air. Some candles, especially paraffin candles, contain things like alkanes and toluene. When breathed, these things can cause lung damage, asthma, and even increase your risk of getting cancer (though this only happens in extreme cases).
You can also reuse the wax from previously purchased candles or wax melts. Yes, you can re-use it!
Yes you can leave them on all night. Scentsy release the element collection in March and it is bulb free so the light doesn't keep you awake at night.
If you're experimenting with using a potpourri crock, they can get too hot for your wax melts and quickly burn the fragrance out of your melt, causing it lose scent quickly. Also, if you have a wax warmer without a timer, make sure you set an alarm so that you don't waste your wax melts' scent.
Never leave an electric wax melt burner unattended whilst in use. Do not leave the electric wax melt burner on or near anything that can catch fire.
After your wax cubes are completely melted, shut off your warmer and carefully place one end of a ribbon into the wax. Allow the wax to cool completely and harden. Once the wax is solid, simply lift it out using the ribbon. If the solid disc breaks apart while lifting out the wax, simply pick out the broken off pieces.
