How To Use Wax Melts

Do you love the feeling of walking into a room that’s enlivened with fresh fragrance? Or does your happy place have an idyllic cozy aroma? Whatever your favorite is, if you want to scent your home without having to worry about the fuss of a flame, wax melts are the fragrance form for you! Whatever the reason you don't want a fragrance to come with an open flame, our Scent Plus® Wax Melts are a stylish solution for busy homes and active lifestyles. Read on to discover how to use wax melts and why they could be the perfect choice for you.


What is a wax melt?

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. When in use, they melt completely to create an even scent distribution. PartyLite Scent Plus® Wax Melts come in trays of 9, which can be snapped and separated into individual cubes. We recommend using 2-3 pieces at a time, offering you up to 60 hours of luxurious fragrance. Our wax melts have all the benefits of a flame-free candle alternative, meaning you can still experience the same great scent sensation. Wax melts are excellent for smaller rooms like bedrooms and bathrooms.

How to remove the wax/clean your warmer

To ensure you’re getting the most out of your wax melts, start by making sure you keep the dish clean and remove any residual wax before placing in a new melt. We want you to enjoy the best quality fragrance, in the safest and best way possible. So follow our handy steps to removing your wax melt below.

  1. Always unplug the power cord before cleaning the Warmer.
  2. Melts do not consume in the ScentGlow Wax Warmer, so you should remove Melts from Warmer dish when the fragrance has dissipated.
  3. To remove used wax, let the dish cool to room temperature, then place the dish in the freezer for about 30 minutes to shrink the wax. Remove the dish from the freezer. Tip the dish to allow the wax to drop out. Repeat as necessary.
  4. To remove stubborn wax, let the dish come to room temperature, then flush with hot tap water. Gently wipe away the wax residue with a dry paper towel. Do not pry wax out with either fingers or tools.
  5. Allow dish to warm to room temperature before reheating.

Once you’ve removed the wax, discard of it safely and wipe the dish clean with a cloth. Your ScentGlow Wax Warmer is then ready for your next Scent Plus Wax Melt!
