What is a wax melt?
A wax melt is a piece of scented wax which you heat, either on an electric burner or a burner heated by a lit tea light. The heating process releases fragrance into the air, leaving your home smelling beautiful.
How do I remove wax from my burner?
After several burns the wax will lose its fragrance and you will want to replace the wax melt with a new piece. The safest option and one we would advise is to pop your burner in the freezer for 5 minutes and the wax should then easily pop straight out of the burner well. Another option is to to ensure the wax is cool and set, light a tea light in the burner, wait 10-20 seconds until the wax becomes loose enough to gently pop out and release from the burner.
What ingredients are used to make your melts?
We chose our ingredients carefully in order to create strong smelling melts whilst minimising our impact on the planet.
Wax: we use eco coconut wax which is slow burning, natural, vegan and biodegradable.
Fragrance: we use vegan, cruelty free and paraben free fragrances.
Glitter: we use biodegradable (non plastic) glitter made from eucalyptus cellulose.
Mica: our micas are a natural mineral product which is responsibly sourced, vegan and cruelty free.
Packaging: we use biodegradable packaging including glassine bags, an alternative to cellophane made from vegetable starch, bio tapes and paper, dissolvable packing peanuts and eco honeycomb wrap.
What are the small white crystals on my wax melt?
This is called ‘frosting’ and looks like tiny little white snowflakes on the surface of the wax. These can form when using a natural wax product and are caused by the wax trying to get back to its original form whilst cooling down. This is purely aesthetic and does not effect the performance or quality of the melt.
What is CLP and are you compliant with it?

Are your products safe to use if I have a pet?
Animals can suffer from allergies and reactions the same way humans can. Most animals are perfectly fine around them however, if you are unsure, we would advise you to ask your vet for which ingredients would be safe to have around your pet and check against the ingredients in the product.
