How to Use a Wax Warmer

Scent adds mood and ambience to your home or work space. Wax warmers are an efficient method of scenting a space. Wax warmers are usually ceramic or clay jars with an upper and lower bowl. The upper area holds a small tablet of scented wax, often called a tart because of its shape. The lower area holds a small candle. When lit, the candle warms the upper bowl, melting the scented wax and infusing the room with fragrance.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Place your wax warmer on a flat surface in the area you'd like to scent. The fragrance will spread subtly through several rooms.

  2. 2

    Put the tealight candle into the lower area of the wax warmer and position it in the centre. It should be directly underneath the upper bowl.

  3. 3

    Place your scented tart of wax in the upper bowl. It should be centred so that, as it melts, there is no spillage.

  4. 4

    Light the candle using your matches. Allow the scented wax to melt completely and enjoy the fragrance.

Tips and warnings

  • Typically, tarts will last for 8 to 10 hours. Replace as needed.
  • Keep children out of reach of matches and open flames.
  • As with candles, do not leave your wax warmer unattended.
