The holiday season is one of the most confusing times for those of us wanting to buy something unique for our loved ones. Scented candles have become a staple in many households now, which is why wax melts are a different trend to go with.
In fact, wax melts have become a fantastic addition to many gift hampers, including for seasonal holidays, or even birthdays.
Wax melts are small, convenient, and come in a variety of flavors – similar to scented candles. On top of that, the sizing and shapes of wax melts are simply adorable, so they make a good item for kids and teens alike.
Wax Melts Are Also A Healthier Option
Wax melts are much better for the planet and your health than both scented candles and burning oil. The plus side of such items is that it doesn’t produce much smoke so you don’t need to worry about the smell of burned wax.
On top of that, wax melts contain a chemical preservative, whereas scented candles do not, which means wax melts are safer in terms of fire safety. They also do not have that certain artificial scent many candles seem to possess.
They Also Melt At A Lower Temperature
Wax melts dissipate at a lower temperature, and they’re non-toxic, unlike the burning wax that comes out of scented candles.
Such items also last longer than scented candles—for at least six months if you’re not using it (and preferably much longer). Wax melts are a great option for people with allergies or those who are just trying to reduce their use of burning paraffin in the home.
Wax melts are also considered to be a healthier alternative because they don’t contain paraffin wax, while paraffin wax is derived from petroleum which can be non-renewable and harmful.
The wax melts you will find at The Satin Scent are often made from 100% soy or plant-based material instead of paraffin wax.
They Are Incredibly Useful For Aromatherapy
Wax melts are an extremely concentrated extract, making them a potent vehicle for powerful aromatherapy. They are used to create a peaceful and fragrant ambience and to promote relaxation. This means they can be used for aromatherapy or as part of an additional regimen.
Not only do they smell good and can help you relax, but they also contribute to the feeling of a clean, “fresh” environment, which can be valuable in a health or therapy setting.
As wax melts are made from a base of organic matter, they don’t use an artificial fragrance and also contain less of the harsh ingredients that you typically find in synthetic “fragrance” products.
This makes it safer for your health and the environment. Beeswax wax melts also tend to be non-greasy, which makes them ideal for children.
They act quickly and effectively, without messing around or cruising around. They also have a long shelf life, so you can keep them on hand for months, if not years.
These Are Only A Few Reasons For Purchasing Wax Melts As Gifts
Wax melts are widely used in aromatherapy, including for their calming, relaxation, and stress alleviation effects. In aromatherapy, wax melts are often used as a pre-bedtime ritual for relaxation and a boost of positive energy.
As such, they make an incredible addition to any gift hamper, or simply for any adult or child who is looking for a little peace of mind. These are available in a variety of scents, including lavender, chamomile, and jasmine, etc., to name a few.
Our wax melts at The Satin Scent are made from organic ingredients, ensuring a healthy and eco-friendly alternative to paraffin items.
