How Scented Wax Cubes Work

Less Mess

Unlike candles, scented wax cubes don’t drip, so all of the melted wax stays in the warmer. Once the cube has melted and cooled, you just have to pop the hard wax out of the warmer and throw it out – the scent will be gone so you can’t reuse. Many of the companies who create these products claim that because the scent is released without a flame or mess, fewer chemicals are emitted into the air.
