If your shopping for the Best Wax Melts In The UK your in the right place! Little Miss Twiggie Twinkles whole range is carefully hand poured, packed full of fragrance to make sure that they give strong, long lasting scent throw made from only the highest quality of materials.

Each one is made from a vegetable based soy wax, naturally sauced from soya bean oil. As a result this has many benefits including being extremely environmentally friendly & one hundred percent biodegradable.

Wax melts are scented pieces of wax that are available in various shapes and sizes. They can be made from numerous types of wax but here at Little Miss Twiggie Twinkles we only use the highest quality soy wax.

Wax melts require a wax warmer or wax burner to melt the wax, meaning unlike a candle the wax does not come into direct contact with a naked flame, therefore they are able to release aromas without burning the oils.

They are safe for the environment and produce super long lasting fragrance for your home and workplace.

Wax melts are used for a variety of reasons, mainly to add room-filling aroma's in minutes to any space simply by gently warming the wax, releasing the chosen scent. A lot like candles people find using wax melts perfect for relaxation, relieving stress and anxiety with the added bonus of being available in a wide variety of scents, colours & amazing shapes!

Place your desired amount of scented wax pieces onto your wax burner.

Place a lighted 4 hour unscented tealight underneath the well of your burner and begin to enjoy the release of beautiful aromas from the pool of melting wax.

We recommend burning your soy wax melt pieces for a maximum of four hours at a time. This will prevent your wax burner from over heating and prolong the life of your wax melts.

Wax melts are also compatible with electric wax burners. They work like your traditional burner but are powered by electric using either a heating element inside the dish, or a bulb inside the body of the burner to melt the wax.

Wax melts are a cost-effective way to keep your home or workplace smelling amazing. In comparison to most candles, wax melts can be up to 4x cheaper which means you get a lot more for your money.

Unlike candles you have the freedom to control the intensity of the fragrance using wax melts by adding more or less wax pieces to your burner.

Using candles can be a fire hazard if left unattended & ones made out off paraffin wax can potentially release harmful toxins, harmful to you & your pets.

Lasting up to 4 times longer & being significantly safer than scented candles, wax melts provide amazing value for money! with the added ability to control the strength of the scent by adding more or less wax to a wax burner.

Depending on the size of the wax melt, as well as how well they are made, 1-2 pieces or cubes can be re-melted several times until the fragrance has completely disbursed.

Fragrance times can vary depending on the strength and quality of the scent, one wax melt piece or cube will generally last between 5-8hrs. At Little Miss Twiggie Twinkles we use only high quality fragrance oil and wax to ensure your wax melt is long lasting & great value for money.

The method in which you melt your wax melt will also have a big impact on how long your melts last for, using a tea light inside a standard wax melt burner will get hotter than an a electric wax burner which is plugged in to a socket & uses either a light bulb within the body of the burner or a heating element within the dish of the burner.

  • High heat = more scent but less burn time
  • Low heat = less scent but more burn time

Little Miss Twiggie Twinkles wax melts are made from soy wax which contains nothing artificial and is non-toxic which benefits both your health and the environment. Some brands may use paraffin wax which can potentially produces benzene and toluene which are both known carcinogens (health hazard’s).

Correctly made melts are completely safe if you follow all the correct precautions.

These precautions are only minimal and ones that you would most likely take with common candles.

When compared to something like a candle, our melts are a much safer and cheaper option.

Soy wax has many benefits including being extremely environmentally friendly & one hundred percent biodegradable. Derived from soybeans, which can be replanted over and over again.

If you want to add a little fragrance to your home, the entrance hall is a great place to start because people will enter your home there first.

Selecting a fragrance for the entrance hall that is calm and inviting will create a sensation of freshness.

The living room is another perfect place to add a fragrance to. Choosing scents that evoke comfort and warmth create an inviting and soothing environment in the living room. Using the right kinds of fragrance is a great way to create that relaxed and serene environment.

The bedroom is the most intimate space in your home. It’s your oasis where you go after a long tiring day or when you are having just one of those days. With this, the area should smell relaxing, which will encourage you to unwind.

The bathroom is one of the most practical areas of the house, but that doesn't mean it shouldn't smell great. When you want warm baths after a long day, the bathroom can be a good place to go. If you want to give your bathroom a sense of serenity with a hint of energy, set the vibe with the right fragrance.

Depending on what you are preparing, your kitchen smells different throughout the day. Adding more strong fragrance in this area could be overpowering, so it's not something you want to do. It's a good idea to use subtle and understated smells in your kitchen. To complement the other food fragrances in the room, stick to fresh, clean, and vibrant scents.

Ensure you do not over fill your burner with wax, we would recommend starting by adding a little wax at a time if you are unsure of the amount of wax the burner can hold, this will reduce the risk of your burner overflowing.

Melts come in various shapes and sizes and are usually very easy to monitor how much you use at one time, meaning you can adapt the strength of the aroma to your scent sensitivity.
