    It wasn’t until the early part of last year (2021) that I came across scented wax melts. What a wonderful alternative to candles! Elegant, simple to use and a cosy atmosphere instantly created.

    FM 413 wax melts. A great gift for the home with a choice of scents to choose from



    These wax burners are so quick and easy to use and with so many stylish holders available, I knew I’d found myself a great purchase.

    Many of us currently have a scented candle to give off a pleasant fragrance or a reed diffuser that work similar but without a naked flame. Long lasting and an instant fragrance to fill the home.


    Candles used to be very popular during the winter and especially around Christmas time, but we are seeing more and more homes having scented candles lit throughout the summer too.

    Our gardens have also enjoyed a naked flame whist we sit watching the sun go down.



    Did you know ?

    Wax melts are a fairly new concept and a new product on the market. They were first created as a way of using up excess wax that was left over by candle makers. A great way to reuse left over wax.

    Candles have been around for thousands of years and are still popular today.


    How to make your own wax melts at home 


    Why are wax melts so popular?

    Having a wax melt dish in my own home and a new addition I might add, it’s easy to see why they are so popular.

    There are so many pretty wax burners on the market with different types to choose from and it’s relaxing to watch as the wax slowly starts to melt away under the flame.

    If your home is occupied by pets or young children, buying a wax burner that you can plug-in is safer than the burners that use tea light candles as the heat is generated from the powered bulb.


    Please bear in mind that even when using a plug-in wax melt, the wax will still be very hot when it burns into a liquid and therefore can still harm young children or pets if it is accidentally knocked over.


    Placing the dish in a safe place is essential.

    Unlike most candles that will have a burn time between 30 and 40 hours, depending on the size that you purchase, using wax melts are much more economical. They seem to burn on forever.

    Having never used them before myself, I was very ambitious in using four small cubes and placing them into the tray and then lighting the tea light candle.

    Over two months later and burning the cubes every day for approximately six hours, I am still on my first four cubes. A lovely aroma fills my home as soon as it’s lit.

    One cube will suffice for several weeks but if you like strong scents in the home, of course, use more than one cube for a more powerful scent.



    Wax melts are a great way to fragrance the home for a long period of time, without overpowering the room.

    There are some very elegant wax melts holders available online



    Being so easy to use and lightweight so that you can take them on your travels, makes wax melts even more popular.

    If you fancy having a change of fragrance, wait for the wax to become solid and gently remove from the top of the dish.


    The dish can be wiped easily and a different fragrance cube can be added. Plug-in or light your tea light candle and away you go.


    Like most candles, wax melts are also very relaxing and therapeutic and with so many styles and fragrances on the market, there is one to suit everyone.

    Everyone loves the smell of clean, crisp and a scent of freshness in the home.



    Benefits of using wax melts

    Lemon is a very versatile scent that instantly lifts our spirits, makes the home feel clean and gives us a kick start to the day.

    Pine is a reminder of the Christmas season, with its woody and fresh smell and is a great scent for those who need a little pick-me-up as it helps to lower depression and stress. Something I’m sure many of us could use from time to time!

    Vanilla This is one of those scents I feel that you either love or you hate. Whilst some will enjoy its sweet, warm and sugary scent, others will find it too sickly. A positive benefit of using vanilla is its ability to uplift and bring joy and relaxation.

     Lavender Possibly one of the most popular fragrances as it has a very delicate floral scent that is very subtle and has huge healing properties. For those who suffer with anxiety, depression, disturbed sleeping pattern or fatigue, a touch of lavender can make a huge difference.

    A very popular scent that is used in aromatherapy and added to essential oils.

    Most homes these days have a fragrance in some form of another.




    There’s nothing quite like sitting at your desk on a winters evening, with a gentle scent of fragrance filling the room and the flicker of candle lights to give a cosy feel.

    If you are feeling creative, you can take small portions from a couple of different fragrance cubes and pop them in together for your own unique scent.

    Besides using them for your own benefit, wax melts really do make a lovely gift for someone.

    The burners, whether you choose plug-in or the tea light candle style can be bought from places like eBay.

    If it is just the wax melts that you are purchasing, these can be bought from several places online and it’s good to know that FM Cosmetics also have a selection of wax melts that match some of your favourite fragrances.

    Who doesn’t love scented wax melts?

    When it comes to filling the home with fragrances, there are so many options.

    Candles, fragrance sticks, canned air fresheners and incense burners.

    It all comes down to personal choice with what suits the individual when choosing the right scent product.

    What are scented wax melts ?

    Wax melts are small pieces of scented wax. There are many on the market and these days there are several that are hand- made so you can purchase unique ones for a special gift.

    Scented wax melts


    Working with a perfume company has seen a huge range of new products coming in to our business.

    The latest addition is the wax melts that are inspired by your favourite fragrances.



    Filling your home with a wonderful scent can be a regular thing especially if you are a pet owner or a smoker.

    Even stale smells from food can linger in the home a lot longer that we would like.

    This leaves many of us reaching for an air freshener, lighting a candle or having reed diffusers sitting in the home to give off a delicate scent.

    Wax melts can be a more affordable choice compared to candles.

    They do tend to last much longer than a candle too and as the was melt in the top of the burner, there is a delightful fragrance that lingers in the room.

    Wax melts soak up the heat more slowly than candles and they don’t burn or over heat the fragrance and are a safer option for the environment.

    As with any lit fragrance such as candles or reed diffusers, it is essential that they are not left unattended.

    Some require a tea light candle to melt the wax and the melted wax with be of a very high temperature which will burn the skin or damage surfaces.

    If you have pets or small children, use with care if you do purchase a wax melt.

    Fragrance sticks are a safer option if you are forgetful that they have been lit. Or you can purchase a plug in wax melt as a safer option.

    There is very much a comforting and cosy feeling in the home when wax melts are used and give off an aroma in the home.


    Try to avoid buying cheap wax melts that contain paraffin as those who suffer with asthma or lung issues will be affected.


    Paraffin wax is often used by big companies as they can mass produce them but when you burn paraffin, it fills the air with potentially toxic chemicals so these are very much avoided.

    You may also notice a strong wax smell too when it’s burning.

    Candles and wax melts that are made with natural wax are more environmentally friendly and even though you will pay more for them, they will burn slower and last much longer.

    If you’ve ever been for a back massage at a health and fitness retreat, wax melts will be very popular as they set the scene for a calm atmosphere to aid in your relaxation.


    Benefits of using wax melts over candles

    • Wax melts are long-lasting
    • Safe to use
    • Longer burning time
    • Safer for the home and environment
    • Leave a delicate fragrance
    • Elegant and stylish in any room
