1. Burn for a longer period of time than candles.
Wax melts absorb heat more slowly than typical candles, allowing scents to be released without the oils being burned. This allows the wax to continue to release the smell without it evaporating too soon. When you light a candle, you get the reverse effect. The heat from a candle’s flame keeps the wax at a higher temperature, allowing the aroma to permeate more quickly into the air.
2. Less expensive than candles
Because wax melts squander less scent and burn for longer, they are less expensive than regular candles. Wax melts have a nearly 5x longer burn period per ounce than regular candles. Let’s have a look at the numbers: The average candle costs roughly $20.00 and has a 60-hour burn period. The average cost of a wax melt is $15.00, with a burn duration of 225 hours. This simple example shows that wax melts are substantially less expensive than candles.
Traditional candles require a flame, and according to the National Fire Protection Association, between 2011 and 2015, the number of fires in the United States increased by 12%.
Candles were responsible for 2% of recorded house fires, 3% of home fire deaths, 7% of home fire injuries, and 4% of home fire direct property damage.
Warmers, which utilize electricity but do not require an open flame, are all that are required for wax melts. You, your children, your pets, and your valuables might be burned by open flames.
4. Don’t let any dangerous compounds out.
Candles have been related to cancer and have been shown to generate toxic pollutants that can worsen allergies, asthma, and cause cancer. Paraffin wax, a waste product from the petroleum industry, is the most prevalent form of wax used today. Toxic compounds such as toluene and benzene are released by paraffin wax, which have been proven to harm the lungs, brain, and central nervous system. Candles also have wicks, which may contain heavy metals like lead. Inhaling airborne heavy metals can be extremely harmful to your health. Despite the fact that in the United States, candle wicks must be made of paper or cotton, research show that up to 30% of them may contain heavy metals.
5. It’s practical
Candles must be handled with caution due to the open flame and are difficult to travel because the majority of them are produced in fragile glass containers that may quickly break. Wax melts, on the other hand, do not have any of these drawbacks and are far more convenient. Wax melts do not require the use of a lighter, are safer to use around children, and may be readily carried without the risk of shattering glass.
6. Scents may be changed and adjusted.
You may adjust the strength of the perfume to suit your preferences or the environment in which the wax melts are being used. Wax melts exist in a variety of sizes and are not restricted to the packaging. You may mix it up and even burn and mix various waxes together to create your own signature scent.
