Wax melts are aromatic pieces of wax that do not require an open flame nor a wick. An electric device called a warmer is used to heat and melt the wax as an alternative to traditional candles. Much like candles, wax melts, cubes, and tarts are used to produce room-filling aroma in minutes. Wax melts and candles both use a combination of essential oils, fragrance oils, and wax to release scent upon being warmed. Just like candles, wax melts can come in a variety of shapes, scents, and colors!
