Wax melts are small, scented pieces of wax designed to be gently heated to release their fragrance. They're like candles but without the wick, meaning that they require a wax warmer to melt and diffuse the fragrance. Wax melts are excellent for smaller rooms like bedrooms and bathrooms. You simply take your wax melt and place one or more in your warmer or melter. Then light your tea light or turn on your heat warmer if it is electric. When you are finished using them, you just turn off or remove the heat source and the wax will solidify until you are ready to use it again.
