Are Wax Melts Safe?
Are wax melts safe?
Wax melts are popular when it comes to adding fragrance to homes and offices and they are a great choice due to their many benefits. They are also a smart choice since they pose less of a fire hazard in comparison to decorative candles.
Although wax melts are relatively safer than candles some people are currently very little wary of them. Understandably so, wax melts create the fragrance that we breathe in, so people want to be certain this won’t cause any kind of harm or diseases.
So, this blog is to convince all the suspicious people out there that wax melts are completely safe to use.
Is it safe to breathe wax melts?
But, are wax melts 100% safe? This is a question that many people ask. The opinion about wax melts being safe varies from person to person. You need to make up your own mind.
Wax melts made of paraffin wax can be a problem. And that’s pretty much the only consideration when determining the safety of breathing wax melts.
But that’s not all. Wax melts that are not made of paraffin might also be a little unsafe to breathe.
You can comfortably use beeswax or soy-based melt in your home or office.
Are wax melts better than candles?
Wax melts are appreciably better and safer than candles.
They are flame-free, soot-free, and convenient. They also have a longer burn time and generate less waste. And what’s better, they are also cheaper than candles.
While candles have flames, wax melts are warmed by electric wax melt warmers usually containing a light bulb or a built-in ceramic heater which is located inside the warmers. The built-in heaters provide just enough heat to warm wax melts in 5-10 minutes, releasing the scent!
In order to dissipate the fragrance, you need to burn candles. While doing so, be sure to be cautious of the soot they put out and the effect it has on the air you breathe. Over time, candles can stain your furniture and can cause discoloration of your walls.
Wax melts are convenient because they do not require a lighter or matches and are generally allowed in offices and other places where candles can cause a fire hazard.
