Using soy wax melts is a simple and effective way to enjoy pleasant fragrances in your home without the need for an open flame. Here are the general directions for using soy wax melts with a wax warmer or melt warmer:
1. Gather Your Supplies:
- Soy wax melts
- Wax warmer or melt warmer
- Electrical outlet or heat source
2. Select Your Soy Wax Melts:
- Choose a soy wax melt with a fragrance that you enjoy. Soy wax melts come in various scents, from floral and fruity to spicy and seasonal.
3. Set Up the Wax Warmer:
- Place the wax warmer on a flat, stable surface. Ensure it is near an electrical outlet or the appropriate heat source.
4. Prepare the Wax Warmer:
- If your wax warmer uses a tealight candle as the heat source, insert a lit tealight candle into the designated compartment. If it's an electric wax warmer, plug it into an electrical outlet.
5. Break or Cut the Soy Wax Melt:
- Soy wax melts are typically sold in small blocks or shapes. Break or cut off the desired amount of soy wax melt to fit into the well or dish of your wax warmer. You can use a knife, scissors, or your hands.
6. Place the Soy Wax Melt in the Warmer:
- Carefully place the soy wax melt piece into the well or dish of the wax warmer. Make sure it fits securely.
7. Turn On the Wax Warmer:
- If you're using an electric wax warmer, turn it on by using the power switch or dial. If you're using a tealight-powered warmer, ensure the tealight is lit.
8. Enjoy the Fragrance:
- As the soy wax melt begins to melt, it will release its fragrance into the air. Enjoy the pleasant scent as it fills the room.
9. Monitor and Adjust:
- Keep an eye on the wax melt as it melts. You can adjust the fragrance intensity by adding more or less wax melt as needed.
10. Turn Off or Extinguish: - When you're finished or want to change scents, turn off the electric wax warmer or extinguish the tealight candle in the tealight-powered warmer.
11. Remove Solidified Wax: - Once the wax has cooled and solidified, it can be removed from the well or dish. You can use a utensil or your fingers to pop it out. Dispose of used wax in a trash bin.
12. Store Your Soy Wax Melts: - Store your remaining soy wax melts in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight to preserve their fragrance. Be sure to keep them out of the reach of pets and children.
Soy wax melts provide a safe and convenient way to enjoy scents in your home. They are an excellent alternative to traditional candles and can be used to create a cozy and inviting atmosphere in any room.
