Do Wax Melts Evaporate?

If you are new to the world of scented wax melts, you might be wondering what benefits wax melts offer and how they are any different from candles. For instance, do wax melts evaporate like candles do? And what are the benefits of using them?

As your trusted wax melt specialists, Happy Wax® is here to answer all of your questions for the best wax melt experience possible, starting with “Do wax melts evaporate?”

The short answer; no. The longer yet more insightful answer? Keep reading!

If Wax Melts Don’t Evaporate, How Do They Work?

Unlike candles, which require an ignited wick to cast heat and release a scent that evaporates into the air, wax melts are melted using a flame-free wax warmer. Upon melting, aromas are released and carried through the air, delivering those classic citrusy, sweet, savory, and seasonal scents to make you feel right at home. While the scent may dissipate, the unscented wax remains in the wax warmer tray, where it will be removed and replaced with your new desired scent.

Now, we know what you might be thinking, “Isn’t changing out wax melts messy?” Not with the Happy Wax® Reusable Popper Liners, it isn’t! Just insert your popper liner and melt away. When your wax melts are no longer scented and wax has hardened, simply pop out old wax, pop in your new scents, and melt away!

More Reasons To Love Happy Wax® Scented Wax Melts 

There are plenty of reasons to love scented soy wax melts. Not only are wax melts flame-free, less expensive, and provide a longer burn time than candles  (8 hours of scent time with two Happy Wax® bears), they are made with better ingredients that you can trust using in your home, especially if you have pets or children. 


For instance, Happy Wax® scented wax melts are made with all-natural soy wax and essential-oil infused fragrances free from parabens, and phthalates, offering up only incredible aromas you can feel good about cozying up to. Other wax melts may be made with paraffin wax, which can contain harmful chemicals. Read our blog to find out if paraffin wax is toxic.
