WINTER'S NIGHT - CHRISTMAS ROOTS wax melt for wax warmers 1 X 20 G
Though Christmas traditions are mainly associated with Christianity, the rituals, customs, flavours and fragrances that accompany them are the result of blending of various cultures. It collected pieces from various countries and focused on unusual arrangements, referring, among others, to the music of the Middle East – after all, it was from those areas that Christianity came to us.
The Winter’s Night scented candle is a sensory embodiment of this multicultural dialogue. Specific fragrance notes symbolically refer to various geographical areas. Cardamom is the dominant scent here. Cardamom is native to Ceylon, the Indian Peninsula, China and Indonesia, but this spice is used in Lebanese or Israeli cuisine too. Therefore, it transports us to various areas where major religions emerged – Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism. Still, the Winter’s Night candle features also e.g. bergamot, which – though came from the East, nowadays is called the gem of Italian Calabria, or licorice, which can be found in a variety of territories, but it's probably most strongly associated with Scandinavian sweets and is often called the black gold of the north. Above all, winter night is therefore a multicultural tale told through fragrance but inspired by various sensual experiences, from musical to culinary and visual ones.
Using wax melts
To use wax melts, you need a wax warmer to heat it up. The wax is placed in heater's bowl and an unscented tea light is set underneath. As it heats up, the wax melts and becomes liquid. Remove wax from the bowl once the fragrance is gone. You can do it the “hot” way, so pour warm wax into a bowl with cold water or the “cold” way, gently pop the hardened wax out using a toothpick or place the warmer in a freezer for about 10 minutes. Once removed, you can easily discard the wax.
The time of heating up the wax depends on the selected tea light. I recommend choosing those that burn for about 3-4 hours. If you want to enjoy the beautiful fragrance again, just replace and lit up a new tea light.
A wax warmer should always be placed in a safe, temperature-resistant place. Keep it away from flammable materials such as furniture and curtains and sources of heat, such as radiators and TVs. It’s important to place the warmer away from drought and never leave the burning candle unattended. Remember that it is not recommended to move wax warmer when it’s being heated by a candle. To ensure safety, keep it out of the reach of children and animals.
