Since launching our home fragrance business, we've noticed something surprising along the way. It turns out, many people aren't familiar with wax melts and how to use them! Don't worry, you're not alone if you're scratching your head right now.

If you're wondering exactly what these little wonders that fill our homes with such inviting scents are, let us explain.

What Exactly Are Wax Melts?

Wax melts are essentially small, scented pieces of wax that are designed to be melted in a warmer or burner to release their fragrance into the air. They come in various shapes, sizes, and scents, making them a versatile choice for anyone looking to add a touch of ambiance to their living space.

One of the fantastic things about wax melts is their ease of use. Simply pop a wax melt into the dish of your wax warmer, switch it on, or light your tealight and let the magic happen. As the wax melts, it releases its aroma, filling your home with your favourite scent.

Exploring Different Types of Burners

When it comes to choosing your wax burner you will be spoilt for choice- there is something to suit everyone’s taste. At Bey and Bo we have, in keeping with our brand, stuck to sleek designs with clean lines that will be a stylish addition to your home.  When it comes to the functionality of the burners there are two main types:  

Electrical Burners: These modern marvels offer convenience at your fingertips. Simply plug in, add your favourite wax melt, and let the aromatic journey begin. No need for open flames or fuss—just effortless fragrance.

Tea Light Burners: For those who appreciate a touch of tradition, tea light burners provide a charming ambiance. Just light a tea light, place it beneath the burner dish, and watch as the wax melt transforms into a fragrant masterpiece.

The Advantages of Wax Melts Over Luxury Candles

While luxury candles can be a treat, let's talk practicality. Wax melts offer a budget-friendly alternative without compromising on quality or scent. You get more bang for your buck, making them an economical choice for scent enthusiasts.

Another great thing about wax melts is their longevity. Unlike candles that have a maximum recommended burn time of four hours at any one time, wax melts can last for hours on end, providing continuous fragrance throughout your home. And when the scent begins to fade, simply discard the used wax melt and replace it with a fresh one to keep the aromatic goodness going strong.


Wax melts come in an array of scents to suit every mood and preference. At Bey & Bo we have wax melts available in every scent in our collection.  Each wax melt contains six cubes and comes in a fully recyclable case which is also resealable between uses. Our wax melts are made from sustainable rapeseed and coconut wax, are vegan friendly and cruelty free.
