There has been a few messages recently in regards to what tea lights you should be using.
In regards to tea lights the only tea lights that you should be using in your wax melt burner are the two to four hour ones.
Unlike candles where you are melting the wax and the fragrance together with a wax melt you are just burning the fragrance off, so by using any longer burner tea lights other than a four hour tea light you are just burning the fragrance off quicker. If you have been using the longer burning tea lights you are not going to get your monies worth from your melts. With a four hour tea light not only are you going to ensure you get the most from your melts you are also keeping things safe, the longer burning tea lights are likely to over heat the wax burner and can cause the burner to crack and even explode.
Many people have asked that if they use a larger tea light will they get a stronger scent?
Like mentioned before using a larger tea light just burns the scent from the wax quicker and so the only way to make the melts smell stronger is to add more wax melt, but ensuring that you do not over fill the well of your wax burner.
Can I use two tea lights?
Why would you want to? It all comes back round to you just burning the fragrance off the wax quicker.
So moral of the blog is - just use one two to four hour tea light and you will in turn get the best out of your wax melts.
We would also recommend reading safety instructions on your burner to double check the manufacturers recommendations on what tea lights to use for your particular burner as some smaller burners available only recommend a two hour tea light.
