Wax Melts Safety Information

Effective 25th May 2020

  • Only use wax melts in wax burners. 
  • Remove all packaging before using your products.
  • Check and keep all packaging for allergen information.
  • Check and keep all packaging for safety information. 
  • Some items may look and / or smell delicious enough to eat - DO NOT EAT! Wax melts are not edible and should not be consumed. 
  • Place in the bowl of a suitable wax melt burner. Make sure to not overfill the burner.
  • Do not underfill the burner as this can result in damage from the burner getting too hot.
  • Only use 1 tealight in a burner at any time and be aware that most tealight wax burners use 4 hour tealights. There are bigger wax burners that can take 8 hour tealights but do not use these in the smaller wax burners as not only do they burn off the fragrance too quickly, they can be a fire risk.
  • Always put your wax burner on a level, heat proof surface.
  • Do not place your wax burner near a heat source.
  • Keep the bowl free of impurities and any flammable materials.
  • Never leave a burning candle unattended and never go to sleep with a candle still burning.
  • Keep your lit / switched on wax burner out of drafts, vents, and ceiling fans.
  • Always keep burning candles out of the reach of children and pets.
  • Never touch or move a candle or burner when the wax is liquid and / or the tealight is lit.
  • Keep well away from flammable items.
  • When cleaning the burner between fragrances, make sure it is completely dry before burning another melt. The slightest damp can cause the wax melt to spit.
  • Don’t put your lit / switched on wax burner under shelves; not only are you stifling the fragrance, the heat produced can burn the surface. Make sure there’s at least one meter between your wax burner and any surface above it.
  • Do not pour hot wax down the sink. Wax melts should be disposed of to an approved disposal site in accordance with local regulations.
