Our scented wax melts are all 100% soy wax with no additives or dyes. They are much more cost efficient than candles, and many people like them because they're much safer than a candle with an open flame. They provide a wonderful alternative for candle lovers who want to avoid the fire risks in their home, but still love the warmth and fragrance of scented wax products. Wax warmers use a heat source (most in stores these days are electric) to warm up the wax in a dish and release fragrance. They can last anywhere from 8 hours to 5 days, depending on the scent, size, and company you have purchased them from. If you like to experience different scents depending on the day and your mood, wax melts are definitely the way to go. I like to pop in something fruity when I'm feeling energetic, and I prefer something sweet and warm when relaxing at home in the evenings. I can simply pop out the solid wax from the afternoon, keep it in a baggie for next time, and pop in a new melt for a completely different fragrance and feel.
We no longer carry the wax melts in plastic clamshells as an effort to reduce our carbon footprint, but be sure to check out our paper bags of scented wax tarts. Our bag of 6 soy wax tarts are a much more affordable option, and the scents at Mountain City Candle Co. are sure to become your new favorites. Our scented soy wax tarts can also be purchased individually, which is convenient if you love to scent your home with different fragrances often, or if you just want to try some of our popular candle scents.
All of our soy wax tarts are handmade in Frostburg Maryland.
