We use the Best Scents. Wax Potpourri melts Last for Weeks ~
Create Your Own "Recipe". Perfect for home or office.
If you've never used wax potpourri before, there are 2 ways they can be used:
One way is to set them out in a dish, or in an organza-type bag for a light fragrance. They're great for freshening up your closets and dresser drawers.
The other way to use wax potpourri is to melt it. This gives off more fragrance in larger areas. First, you'll need a wax potpourri burner, as seen above. Not all wax burners burn the same. They're are 2 types of burners - one is heated by candlelight, and one is heated electrically. Our wax potpourri will work for either. We prefer the candlelit burners, however, the electric burners may be a safer alternative. As for the candlelit burners, there are a few things to be aware of:
- With some, the flame is too close to the plate, and will burn the wax too quickly. With others, the flame may be too far away and won't heat the wax enough. The burners we use require tea lights as the melting source. The ideal position of the flame from the plate should be at least 2"-3". The tea lights heat the upper plate, and melt the fragranced wax, which puts off the aromas into the air.
- Using wax potpourri is just a matter of melting and remaelting wax. The process isn't the same as simmering scented foliage in water. DO NOT ADD WATER.
Our wax potpourri is made with the best wax to ensure a longer burn time, as well as a long lasting fragrance. When deciding on a fragrance, get creative and mix them up for a fragrance that suits your senses. You can start with a few of our 4 ounce bags, and depending on the amount of fragrance you want to be put off, we suggest starting with no more than 4 to 5 pieces at a time. Set the potpourri pieces on the top plate, and they'll start melting into liquid fragranced wax that fill your house with a fresh candle scent. The wax will out-live the fragrance, so when you notice that the aromas aren't giving off, simply remove the DRIED wax chunk from the plate, and add some fresh potpourri. The tea lights generally burn up to 7 hours, and for every 5 pieces, the fragrance is expected to last anywhere from 4 to 7 hours.
