Wax melts or cakes are fragrant pieces of wax. They are placed in decorative warmers, also called cake burners, where the heat gently melts the wax and releases the scent. The scent lasts between several hours and several days.
Wax melts are a nice alternative to traditional candles and have several advantages over candles. Wax melts are more solidly aromatic than traditional candles because they absorb heat more slowly and release aromas without burning the oils. Candles can emit harmful chemicals and pollutants that can make asthma and allergies worse, and have even been linked to cancer. Candles can also release potentially dangerous chemicals like benzene and toluene, which can damage the brain, lungs, and central nervous system. Melting wax is also highly valued by parents who are wary of young children being on fire. Ready to make some of these cuties yourself? I have prepared some DIYs to make these cuties and enjoy flavors more solidly and without harm to your health and the environment.
