Candles Vs Wax Melts

Candles Vs Wax Melts

Candles and wax melts are both popular items for creating a relaxing atmosphere in the home. From soft lighting to delightful scents, these products add an extra layer of coziness to any room. But did you know that candles and wax melts essentially do different things? Although they may look similar, their functions and benefits vary significantly.

Candles are made from paraffin wax or vegetable wax and can be burned for a long period of time. Candles allow you to set the mood with their warm glow and delightful aromas. SMG Home Fragrance candles are made with a wooden wick, which allows for soothing crackling sounds while also burning the candle evenly.

Wax melts, on the other hand, are made from a special type of wax that release fragrance without burning. They usually don’t last quite as long as candles. However, the benefit is that they don’t require a wick and are generally safer than traditional candles. Additionally, they offer a larger variety of scents than candles do since they can be blended together in almost any combination. Wax warmers are also reusable for years and are available in many designs to match any home decor and any season.

Ultimately, whether you choose candles or wax melts is a matter of personal preference. If you're looking for something that can be used multiple times and provides long-lasting lighting and aromas, then candles are the way to go. But if you're on the hunt for something stronger in terms of scent, wax melts may be the better option. Either way, both candles and wax melts can help turn any room into a cozy, inviting space.
