What is a Wax Melt?

A wax melt is a piece of scented wax which is designed to create a strong long-lasting fragrance in your home. You simply snap off your desired piece of wax and pop it onto your burner, light your tea light and enjoy the aroma. You should typically get around 12 hours of the aroma however remember it will begin to fade the more times you burn it. It will smell strong the first time you burn the melt then it will become more subtle and with your judgement you can change the melt.

Tip to remove a used melt. Light a tealight for approx. 1 minute and try sliding it off then pop it into the bin.

Soy wax melts don’t normally smell as strong on electrical burners and normally have a better scent throw when using an ordinary burner with a tealight. Everyone is different and will have their own personal preference.  

We use 100% soy wax. The glitters we use are also biodegradable.

Please note that Wax Melts by Betty has absolutely no connection to any real designer scents/brands and the fragrances are simply just similar to the originals.

Wax Melt Safety

Remove the packaging for your wax melt and place desired amount on the dish of your burner. Light your unscented tealight (we do not recommend using tealights which burn for more than 4 hours).


Keep out of the reach of children. Keep out of the reach of pets. Keep out of draughts and never leave a burning melt unattended.


Always ensure the space you use to burn your melt is clutter free, away from electrics or anything flammable. Always ensure safety comes first when burning wax melts.
