What is the best burner to use with soy wax melts?

We recommend a tea light burner that is designed for use with wax melts. Ideally this should be a minimum of 10cm tall and can be used safely with either a 4 or 8 hour tealight. Burners that are smaller than 10cm tall are called oil burners, and although they are widely used for wax melts, they are not designed for this purpose. Soy wax melts are compatible with electric burners, however you may find that you have a softer scent throw when melting this way due to the limited level of heat. All of our burners are designed for use with wax melts and are between 10-13cm tall.

Sometimes i can see smoke coming off my wax pool, is this safe?

Yes! What you can see is not smoke, it is actually the scent vapours from the fragrance oil burning off. This is completely safe and is very common. However, you may find that your wax melts lose their scent faster when you see this. We recommend switching to a taller burner or using a smaller tea light so as to preserve the scent throw for longer.
