Complete Wax Melt FAQ

What is a wax melt?

A wax melt is exactly what the name implies!  A wax melt piece is a of wax generally  called a tart or a cube.   It can come in clamshells, loafs or other varieties of shapes and even textures such as a scoopable version.  Wax Melts are fragranced and are generally colored.  Wax melts are used to create an ambiance through scent.  Wax melts are wickless.  The main method of creating a fragrance ambience is by using a wax warmer and popping a piece of wax into the wamer's dish (or "lid") of the wamer.  The wax is slowly melted and throws scent to create a "scent mood" or ambiance within your space.  

What are the benefits of wax melts?

They are  generally less expensive making it easier to purchase a larger variety of fragrances.  
You can use more than one melt at a time to create your own mix and match scents.
You can choose from a multitude of wamers on the market to fit your home's decor from room to room versus a standard glass jar style available with most regular candle lines.
While it is still the best idea to keep out of the reach of children and pets, wax melts do not have a wick or a flame.
No flame?  No flame also means no soot and no sooty ceiling marks in case your wick was too long.
No flame also means no worries about whether you remembered to extinguish the candle before you left home.
Some landlords have clauses in their leases prohibiting use of candles.  If used within accordance of the wax warmer and wax melt instructions provided, wax melts are a relatively safe way to fragrance your home without breaking your lease.
Please note:  It is not advised to use a fragrance oil burner (requires a tea light candle) in place of a wax warmer.

What does "cure time" mean?

Wax melts are generally not made a long time in advance, instead, the preferred method is to create them fresh.  The cure time is the time from the wax is made until the artisan recommends usage.  This time allows for the wax and the fragrance to bind together.   For Under a Hula Moon wax melts, our cure time is one week.
