A Handpainted Glass Dragonfly Burner too add warmth and charm to the space additional to the amazing scent throw from these little warmers! But beware, due to them being small, wax melts will have an amazing throw, but will not last as long as in bigger tealight or electric warmers.
How long do wax melts last in this warmer?
Our Little Wax Melts should last between 6 to 12 hours in this Handpainted Glass Dragonfly Burner as with most tealight wax burners. The smaller the burner, the stronger the scent. The bigger the burner, the longer they last. Each scent is also very different so the length and strength varies. Ultimately, for the safest way to use wax melts and for the best performance by far, is to use an electric wax warmer where the burn time increases to 25-50 hours per 12g wax melt or portion. Although tealight warmers are great for a quick sharp blast if you want to make the house smell strong quickly!
To get the best from your wax burner or warmer make sure to position it close to where air comes into the room rather than where it goes out. This can be true for the whole residence. Find where the air comes in and it will carry the scent right the way through to where it is vented filling the house at the same time. Use your wax warmers and burners for no more than 2-4 hours at a time. This will not only give you the best life of an electric warmer or save on tealights, but also allow your nose to reset. That means when you turn your warmer back on you will enjoy a fresh scent and your wax melts will last for much much longer. If you use an electric warmer you can use a plug timer.
How to change your wax melt
There are various ways you can change the wax in your warmer. You can do it whilst cold or warm. To do it cold, crack the wax with a tea spoon. The wax should crack all the way through and you should be able to easily remove it and dispose of it in the bin. You can also turn on your warmer and allow the bowl to warm a little. You should then be able to simple tip the wax into the bin pretty much solid just slippery underneath. NEVER pour hot wax down the sink. It will eventually block your sink.
