what are the reasons to buy wax melts
Our wax melts are handmade because we care about sending nothing but the best to every home. Ours aren’t the usual wax melts that come in chunks or different shapes. Instead, we produce our wax melts in handy bars that can be easily separated into cubes, giving you the same experience each time you break off and use a piece.

Strongest Smelling Wax Melts

Using wax melts in any room can instil a feeling of comfort and peace. Melting fragranced wax has the ability to relieve stress and lift the spirits on a bad day, or to induce feelings of calm when we need it.

Smell is the sense that has the most impact on our emotions, and wax melt bars are the perfect way to destress at the end of a long day or to ensure we are waking up fresh every morning. That’s because our noses are directly connected to the part of the brain that regulates our emotions. And that means it’s beneficial to be more mindful about the scents we surround ourselves with. One way to do that is to use quality fragranced wax melt bars from a professional manufacturer and retailer.

With the extremely wide range of refreshing scents available, it’s not surprising that many of our customers ask which are the strongest smelling perfume wax melts. It’s natural to want to make the most of the experience.

But in fact, different people tolerate different scents in a variety of ways. That’s why there is no specific scent that we would recommend as the strongest or the most powerful in terms of the reactions it invokes. It’s also one of the reasons why we make our wax melt bars the way we do. The strength of the scent can be controlled by the size and number of cubes you place on your wax melter or wax burner.

Using two wax melt cubes at a time can also extend the duration of the scent you’ve chosen. We estimate that two cubes will completely fragrance an area when used on a burner for 12 to 18 hours. And that means uninterrupted fragrance the entire day long.

Interesting Scents to Try

Here at Sassy Shop Wax, we provide such an extensive range of scents that no matter how unique your fragrance preferences might be, there will be one that perfectly suits you and your home. We strive to come up with an unrivalled range of scents, not bettered by any of our competitors, from the familiar fragrances many of us would choose when buying scented candle to the smell of places or things you love and might come across in your everyday life.

If you are looking for a touch of magic, the Snow Pixie bar is one of the best-selling variants in our collection. Its pastel pink colour alone lets you know what to expect once you put a cube or two on your burner. When melted, it gives you the feeling that you’re in a kind of fairyland with snow all around!

If you love the cold, clear smell of a frosty winter’s day, there’s an option for that too. Our Blue Ice Pole wax melt bar gives you that cool feeling that will remind you of how winter feels, but at any time of the year you choose.

If you’d rather smell the blossoms of spring and the soft rains that fall during this season, the Blossom & Spring Rain bar is a good pick. It’s reminiscent of that freshness you only experience during the springtime when nature starts to show off its brightest colours.

There are also scents that will make your bedtime the absolute best time of your day. With the Bedtime Baby wax melt bar, you can sink into your bedsheets as if they’re welcoming you into a warm embrace.

If you’re a sucker for the comforting scent of old books, the Antique Bookstore bar is the perfect choice for you. Imagine that familiar smell you get when you open up an old book and browse through those worn pages. It feels like you’re being transported back in time, back to the days when the book was written.

Some people also find delight and comfort in the smell of fresh laundry, especially when they press their faces against freshly-laundered soft towels. Yes, we have a bar for you, too! Our Soft Towels wax melt bar gives you that clean and refreshing feeling you get when you use those freshly washed and dried towels straight from the laundry.

If you’re inspired by the above, which are some of our bestsellers and are just a taster of what we have in-store, why not browse through our entire catalogue? There are hundreds more scents to suit every preference.

Benefits of Using Wax Melts

Scented wax melts are always a wonderful and inspiring idea, no matter what time of the day it is. But they don’t just make your indoor spaces smell good. They bring a number of other benefits too, even more so than scented candles.

For one thing, our wax melts are made of entirely safe and natural ingredients, as opposed to the harmful paraffin used in candles that can damage not only your walls but also your lungs over the long term. Many people who suffer from asthma and allergies find that the materials used in scented candles can aggravate their symptoms, but not so with wax melts.

Our wax melts are made of soy wax, a completely natural material that comes from soybeans. The scents are usually created by the addition of essential oils that are also derived from plants.

Safety-wise, candles pose far more danger than wax melts. A candle’s flame is larger than the one on the tealight that is traditionally used for burners. Candles tend to be more exposed, and the flame can easily catch any flammable item located in the near vicinity, causing a fire. The tealight in a wax burner is far less exposed, and even better, you also have the option to have no flame at all if you use an electric wax burner.

Electric wax burners have a surface that heats up the wax to release the scent. Although you won’t experience as strong a fragrance as you get if you use a candle-lit burner, an electric burner does have the benefit of melting the wax more slowly, which means that you get to enjoy the smell longer.

Enjoy the wax melt experience that only Sassy Shop Wax can give you. We offer the best wax melts on the market, with the widest range of fragrances that you’ll find anywhere in the UK or beyond. You can browse through our products page to see which scents will resonate with you the most.

why buy wax melts

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What do you do with wax melts?

Simply pop one or two of the wax melts onto the surface of your wax burner. If you’re using an electric warmer, switch it on. For tea light burners, light up the tealight and pop it into the designated hole below the dish. In just a few minutes, the wax will begin to melt and emit its fragrance.

Why are wax melts so popular?

Wax melt gift boxes provide a long-lasting, affordable fragrance for any home. They are significantly safer than scented candles, although obviously, caution must always be exercised around children and pets. They’re a convenient and more natural choice than an air freshener in an aerosol if you’d like to control the strength of scent while filling your home with luxurious fragrances.

Can I remelt wax melts?

Yes, you can. Use them until the fragrance is gone, or melt down the excess wax and pour it into a thinner votive. Then, you have a new wax melt ready to be lit up. Just make sure that if you’re mixing different wax melts, you only combine waxes of the same type (e.g. beeswax, paraffin, or soy).

How often should you change wax melts?

The simplest answer to this is when you can no longer smell the fragrance from the wax when the warmer is ‘on’. Clean out the old wax and add a new melt. Cheaper wax usually melts last between five and eight hours, while luxury and high-end ones can hold up to 20 hours of fragrance or more.

Are wax melts safer than candles?

Yes! A wax melt is the safer alternative to scented candles. Candles, especially cheap ones, can include materials like lead, phthalates, and formaldehyde which may not only leave black soot on your walls, but can also be harmful to health. Good wax melts are made from entirely natural materials, and a tealight flame is much less of a fire-risk besides.

What can I use for my wax melts if I don’t have a wax warmer?

You can use the microwave method. Simply put your wax melt set into the bowl, using a coffee filter to line it if you choose. Then, place the bowl in the microwave. Turn the microwave on for 10 seconds and stir the wax. Do this again until the wax is at a honey-like consistency, then place it in your room.

Can you leave wax melts overnight?

Electric burners can be left on overnight, but naked flames, even tealights, should never be left unattended. In terms of fragrance, while wax melts in the UK are very reliable in making your home smell good for ten hours or more, leaving them on for long periods overnight may be pointless if you’re not awake to enjoy the scent.

What is the best way to store wax melts?

To keep your essential oil wax melts in the best condition and ready for use, store them in a dark, cool place. This extends their shelf life and enables you to enjoy the fragrance for longer. A few of the best places to store your wax melts are in a bathroom cabinet above the sink or inside a drawer.

Why are my wax melts not smelling?

One of the most common reasons why wax melts no longer smell is their age. If you’ve been using the same wax melts for an extended period of time, then they may have lost their fragrance. Replace with new melts. If unused wax melts don’t smell, it’s likely they’ve been stored wrongly or are very old.

How do you make wax melts smell stronger?

Here are some tips you can use to make your wax candle melts smell stronger:

  • Use two or more blocks, in multiple burners if necessary.
  • Add a fragrance oil suitable for the type of wax you’re using.
  • Make sure there are no other competing smells, such as incense, air fresheners or other candles.

Here’s How To Use A Wax Melt

Below is a step-by-step guide to properly melt a wax:

  • Set up your warmer first. If it’s an electric warmer, plug it in. If a manual one, light a tealight and insert it into the opening at the bottom. Wait for the burner to warm up before you place the wax in it.
  • Place the wax in the top of your wax warmer. Typically, there’s a small bowl or bowl-shape on top of the wax warmer. Add just one piece of wax to the indentation to prevent it from overflowing.
  • Let the wax melt. Wax melt bars will melt on their own, so leave for a short while, then check whether the fragrance is reaching the entire space. If it isn’t, it may be a sign that you need a new wax melt.

Several Reasons Why Wax Melts Are Better Than Candles

A wax melt gift set will go down with the recipient far better than scented candles these days, and no wonder when you consider the following:

  • Wax melts are flame-free. Candles need a flame for them to smell, which makes them riskier. But with wax melts and an electric burner, you don’t need flames. This means they can be a much safer option.
  • Wax melts have more burn. Wax melts last longer in terms of burning time than candles. The latter will lose their smell within around seven to nine hours of being lit, but the best wax melts can hold up to 84 hours of fragrance.
  • Wax melts are cheaper. Compared to candles, wax melts are far more affordable yet smell good for longer. This makes them especially good for anyone on a tight budget but still wanting a luxurious fragrance around their house.
  • Wax melts are versatile. There are a considerable number of fragrances available, far more than you’ll find in candles nowadays.

Wax Melts: What Makes Soy Wax Melts Perfect For Your Home

Wax fragrance melts are very popular for homeowners right now, and none more so than those made of soy wax. Created by using soybean oils, these melts have a lower melting point than other waxes and give off a fresher, cleaner odour because they contain no paraffin.

With soy wax melts, it’s vital to store them in a cool, dry place if you want the scent to last. Once your soy wax melt stops smelling, you can either add a couple of drops of an essential oil to boost the fragrance or shop for new ones.

Why You Should Use Wax Melts In Your Home

It’s true that, for many people wanting to add fragrance to their home, candles can look more appealing and striking. However, aesthetically pleasing wax burners are also increasingly found on the market, and the benefits that wax cubes offer by far outweigh the appealing look of candles.

As well as being more affordable and safer if appropriately used, wax melts are also eco-friendly. This means that you get to enjoy luxurious scents without damaging the environment. And that alone makes them preferable to candles or aerosols of air freshener.
