Is your packaging recyclable?
We are as environmentally friendly as possible, where possible.
You can recycle and re-use our packaging if you desire.
How do I use a Wax / Jelly / Squeezy melt or Scented Crystals?
Firstly, Make sure you choose to use is safe to use for wax melts [we prefer tea light burners as they burn hotter therefore a stronger scent throw] We advise not to use in oil burners as this can set alight.
Our Wax Melts are made with the strongest fragrance load which means you don't need to use loads. We recommend between 1-2 segments.
Our Jelly Melts can be peeled out of the packaging and put into your burner, we suggest the 'Flip Method' - which is when the smell become less strong, once it is cooled down, peel away and flip over and use until scent is weakened.
Our Scented Crystal posts can be used by pouring desired amount into your burner. We personally use half to begin with [depening on the strength], you can add the rest or use all at once. This is up to you.
Squeezy Melts are to be added to your burner, just squeeze a desired amount in and it will melt pretty quickly. Add more depending on strength.
Do not overfill your burner.
If you see steam coming from your burner don’t worry! This is completely normal, this is just the fragrance oil burning off. When your wax starts to smell weaker or not at all, it is time to change it.
[Please be advised that it is normal for some wax scents to be stronger than others, you may find they last a little longer also. This is normal due to each fragrance being its own unique formula and some scents are naturally stronger]
Do you offer Wholesale?
We can do, however due to cosmetic laws in the UK are different tho those in the Channel Islands, we cannot ship certain products over-seas yet. (This is being sorted)
However, please contact us via Meltandglow@hotmail.com to discuss wholesale.
How do I change/clean my wax burner?
Ensure the burner is hot and the wax is melted, simply pop a few cotton balls or pads into your wax and wait for them to soak up the liquid, wipe and throw away. Be careful, the wax will be hot. Alternatively, when cold, heat your burner for 20-30 seconds or until you can free the wax with a small amount of pressure on the edge of the melt, it will slide out for easy disposal.
We also advise you do this close to a bin to prevent any drops or spillage. Wipe any residue away then you will be ready to use a new melt. Sit back and enjoy
* IMPORTANT WARNING * Please do not leave your wax burner unattended at any time. This is a fire hazard. Keep out of reach from children and pets. Do not have a wax burner near any drafts, for example; fans or open windows. We also advise against burning your wax in a cold room, this may cause the wax to bloom, not melt evenly and ruin some scent.
For Jelly Melts, allow to cool completely. Once cool and solid again, peel away. Wipe any excess away with kitchen paper.
For squeezy wax, same method above for wax melts, or scoop out with kitchen paper when cold as Squeezy melts will cool back soft, never hard.
Never use anything sharp to remove the wax from your burner. This may cause injury or damage the burner.
Should I cure my wax melts?
As you know, we are a small business so we make alot of our products to order as we currently do not have the facitity to be able to bulk stock many wax melts.
We make larger batches of the more popular scents, so these usually are cured. However, your scent may new freshly made. We always advise of this wish a label to let you know. We always advise to wait 48-72 hours [if you can] so your scent can cure.
What do you mean cure?
By curing, we mean for the scent to reach maximum scent throw, Bascially, the longer you leave it in a closed package, the stronger the scent will be over time.
We do use the full allowance of fragrance per batch, so you can use it straight away [which we do] if you desire - But you may find some scents are naturally not as strong as others, so don't worry! Wait a few days and all should be good!
Possible dangers with Wax Melts, Jelly Melts & Scented Crystals.
So.. you may have seen a few little comments around about the safety of these products, so we will share a few tips for maximum safety.
ONLY use a wax burner which is for wax. DO NOT use an oil burner. These are much smaller.
DO NOT leave your burner unnattended
Hot jelly can midly burn if you touch it when it's burning, so avoid touching it.
ONLY use a 4 hour tea light, unscented candle.
DO NOT use around soft furnishings.
DO NOT leave in reach of children or pets.
All fragrances are made after Safety Data Sheets are checked, certain fragrances cannot go in Jelly Melts due to certain temperatures, so please be advised we check this and unfortunaly cannot offer every scent in Jelly.
