Wax Melts - a Great Scented-Candle Alternative

It’s never a bad time to spruce up your living area with a fresh, exotic and delicate fragrance. Now that the cold season is knocking at the door and obstinately demanding right of entry, there’s only so much you can do to keep your home smelling fresh and cheerful when you can hardly open the frosty window.

Come in, nose first

Our sense of smell is rooted in the oldest area of our brain, the limbic system, along with our capacity to sense emotions. The olfactory centre also interacts with another area of the brain called the hippocampus, which gives us the ability to develop new memories. It’s the only one of our senses which enjoys such depth in its access to our mind’s workings.

Slow and steady wins the race

The nose is able to adapt to a new scent in little over 15 minutes, but until such time, the brain would have already made a memorable connection between an environment and the smells it produces. So don’t think that lighting a candle after a visitor drops by, to hide the smell of food, pets, tobacco etc. would be as effective as releasing small amounts of fragrance throughout the day.

This is where electric wax melt warmers come in. They release exceptional fragrances for as long as you like. Simply plug them in and enjoy whichever flavours strike your fancy. Myriads of styles are available from specialist shops, such as Yankee Candle. Just take a gander at the lovely designs available, select your favourite and embark on a journey of everlasting olfactory delight.

Easy on the eye, easy on the nose

Wax melt warmers blend in brilliantly with your home decor. And as they’re made of ceramics, they’re not only safe for your home and light on your pocket, but also extremely versatile. You can use your wax melts of choice and create splendid bouquets that will literally have people gasping for breath as soon as they walk in. There are few things in life, or indeed in nature, that can make you weak at the knees, and the smell of gran’s custard pie is one of them. You can have that in a flash with a few witty essence combinations. Or what in this world awakens the senses and makes you reminisce with melancholy your childhood years, if not the lovely smell of mulled wine in winter?

A rose by any other name is still a rose, they say. They must be referring to wax melts, because there’s hardly an aroma they can’t emulate, or even surpass brilliantly. So dive into this whirlwind of fragrances today. Find an electric wax burner today and use it to exhaustion. Your home will thank you for it.
