Wax Melter vs. Candles

I have seen a lot of small businesses on Tik Tok make handmade wax melts that come in all shapes, colors and scents. Unbeknownst to me, you can get scents that smell like your favorite celebrity (supposedly). How these people know exactly what Harry Styles smells like… I’m not sure. Or you can get Euphoria character themed ones that have a more sparkly component compared to normal wax melts.

Nonetheless, I wondered how much money I could save switching over from candles to wax melts. Anyone that knows me personally knows that I love to save a buck and online shop. So, after hours of scrolling, I settled on buying a wax melter, a variety of scents and conducting my own research.

I found that the wax melts are way more fragrant and faster acting when it comes to deodorizing a room. There also isn’t a flame to worry about either, so I suppose there is the safety factor that makes the wax melter more appealing. I have had the wax melts for quite some time now and have not even finished a whole package of the small wax cubes. Whereas, I certainly would have burned through multiple candles by now. Needless to say, I have a ridiculous amount of scents left to use and I’m never going back!
