Candles vs Melts

Candles vs Melts

Candles and melts are both popular ways to add fragrance to a room and create a cozy atmosphere, but there are some key differences between the two. In this blog post, we'll take a closer look at the pros and cons of each option, so you can decide which one is best for you.


Candles are a traditional way to add fragrance and light to a room. They can be made from a variety of materials, including wax, beeswax, soy wax, and even gel. Candles come in a wide range of scents, from floral to fruity, and can be used to set the mood for any occasion. They can be lit for a few minutes or hours and the fragrance will fill the room. One of the drawbacks of candles is that they can be dangerous if left unattended and they need to be trimmed to prevent soot.


Melt, also known as wax melts or tarts, are small chunks of scented wax that are heated in a special burner to release their fragrance. They are a great alternative to candles because they do not need to be lit, which eliminates the risk of fire. Melts are easy to use, simply place them in the burner, turn on the heat and enjoy the fragrance. They also come in a wide range of scents and can be mixed and matched to create your own unique fragrance. One of the drawbacks of melts is that they don't last as long as candles, and they need to be replaced more frequently.


In conclusion, candles and melts both have their own unique benefits and drawbacks. Candles provide a traditional way to add fragrance and light to a room, while melts offer a safer alternative without the need of lighting them. Ultimately, the choice between the two will depend on your personal preferences and the ambiance you wish to create.
