We're having these Natroma Soy Wax Melts made for us (we're too busy making our skincare at the moment!), and they contain only natural plant waxes. They are free from any animal derived ingredients or beeswax, making them vegan friendly. They are clean burning, additive free and are not tested on animals.
Wax melts are good choice, if you like a stronger aroma than burning a candle. Wax melts tend to be made from a softer wax which can hold a little more fragrance than candle wax. So when they're melted in a wax melter they completely melt and this releases a stronger fragrance from the wax. Our Natroma wax melts need to be placed in a large wax melter or oil burner. The important thing to consider is the height of your burner since wax melts need to be gently heated. This ensures the wax melts without becoming too hot and forms a pool in the burner which releases the fragrance. Try not to use in a small burner that is designed for essential oils since the height from the top of the tealight candle may be too short - you'll over heat the wax and this will burn off the fragrance too quickly leading to your wax melt not lasting as long as it should. After each use the wax should be allowed to cool, and it will then solidify in the melter/burner. Unlike a candle these do not contain a wick, so it is the heat from the wax melter / burner that melts the wax. To get the best results we'd suggest that you use an electric burner, but large wax melt burners work too providing you use a 4 hour tealight. Do not use tealights that can burn for 6-8 hours (e.g. gastronorm/food warmers since you will overheat the wax which could be a fire risk. Watch this space - we have some lovely wax melters in our shop and will be adding their details to the website soon!
We have selected a small range of fragrances for customers to try. There are some which only contain pure essential oils, and others that have fragrances enhanced by fine quality fragrance oils. (We chose some of these, since it's impossible to create some popular fragrances with just essential oils). The pure essential oils wax melts have nature, more subtle aroma which is just lovely! To fill a large space with aroma you may need to use more than one wax melt (you'd need to use more than one melter/burner).
Priced for a single melt, weighing at least 28g of wax (they are hand poured so may contain a little more). Each melt measures approximately 4.5 x 2cm and is supplied in a paper case with labels on the wax and base of the paper case (please remove before use). These are quite large melts, so they can be cut in half. There's no other packaging so we'll simply wrap the required melt(s) in plain tissue paper so it's environmentally friendly.
