Wax Melt Safety / Advice

The Smelly Cow Co wax melts consist of sustainable soy blend wax and a percentage of fragrance oil.  The Smelly Cow Co melts are suitable for use in tea light burners and electric burners.  You may find that with tealight burners the scent given off is stronger due to the higher heat compared to electric burners.  On the other hand using an electric burner you may find you can get more use from individual melts due to the lower temp the bulb / heat plate gives off.

How to use

  • Remove from packaging, break appropriate size for chosen burner
  • Place into burner well.  As the well heats up the wax will begin to warm up and melt, releasing wonderful smells into your home
  • When the tea light has been extinguished or the burner turned off, the wax will re-harden ready for next use
  • Unlike candles, wax melts do not evaporate.  You can continue to use the wax multiple times, until all the smelly goodness is gone
  • When finished with, the best way to remove wax is when starting to melt you can pop it out of well.  Also using loo roll / cotton wool pads to soak up.  Dispose of these in bin

Important Stuff

  • Always use within sight, and never leave unattended
  • Always ensure that you do not overfill your bowl
  • Keep melted wax away from pets and children
  • Do not eat
  • Never pour melted wax down plug holes
  • Wax / burner will remain hot after the tea light has been extinguished / burner switched off
  • Do not try to move the burner until it has cooled completely and the wax has hardened
  • Do not add water or fragrance oils to wax melt well
  • Keep wax clear of debris
  • Only ever use unscented tea lights as fragrance ones burn too hot
  • Only use standard sized 4hr tea lights.  Never use the larger 8hr tea lights or multiples as these can cause the burners to break
  • Never place burner in freezer to help dislodge wax.  This can weaken structure of the burner
  • Ensure that the surface under the burner is heatproof
