Wax melts or tarts are scented chunks of wax. They are placed into decorative warmers, also called tart-burners, where the heat gently melts the wax and releases the fragrance. The scent lasts anywhere from several hours to several days.
Wax melts are a nice alternative to usual candles and they have some 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, which can aggravate asthma, allergies, and have even been linked to cancer. Candles can also release potentially hazardous chemicals such as benzene and toluene, which can cause damage to the brain, lungs, and central nervous system. Wax melting is also highly revered by parents who are wary of small children being around flames. Ready to DIY some of such cuties? I’ve prepared some DIYs to make these cuties and enjoy aromas more solidly and with no harm to your health and environments, take a look.
