Intro To My Wax Melt Review
I’m all about aromatherapy candles, but aromatherapy wax melts? I wasn’t quite sure, but I couldn’t pass up the chance to try a few from Better Homes & Gardens. I saw a smattering of options during one of my dreaded Walmart trips, so I picked up a couple to try. First up is Sandalwood & Vanilla.
These wax melts were also clamshell style, but not the typical rectangular package. This was an oblong shaped package that did have a little “foot” at the bottom to help it stand up a bit on its own. The package was still 2.5 ounces, so I’m not really sure of the purpose of the different packaging, other than to set it apart from the non-aromatherapy wax melts. My only issue with this packaging was that it was harder to store and stack.
That aside, the picture on front made it clear what I was getting. The aromatherapy melts were “essential oil infused.” There was a wooden spoon full of sandalwood and some vanilla bean pods in the background. The melts themselves were white and similar in consistency to the regular BH&G wax melts.
Cold sniff was soft but pleasant. I really noticed more of the sandalwood than any vanilla but it was really nice.
I ended up melting a cube of this in my plugin warmer in a bathroom as I was expecting a relatively mild throw from these. That warmer has a 15W bulb but it did not take long to start melting the wax and releasing the scent. This was such a beautiful scent! As the wax warmed, I was able to smell more of the vanilla and the sandalwood smelled more resinous. The vanilla was more smooth and sultry rather than foodie-bakery. It was soothing and relaxing and, to me, just the right scent strength. I also decided to place 2 cubes in a 24W hot plate melter and, of course, got a stronger scent and throw.
How Did My Wax Melt Perform?
The longevity of this wax melt was fantastic. I kept it in the plug in warmer for several days, warming it a few hours each time. I noticed it starting to lose its punch after about the 3rd day, but it was still scenting enough by day 5.
Closing To My Wax Melt Review
I really liked this aromatherapy melt from BH&G! It was just the background kind of scent that I need some days. Even though I got a stronger scent and throw using 2 cubes in my 24W melter, I really don’t think it was worth it for this type of scent. The one cube was enough to get the ‘vibe’ of the scent and to keep it as intended to be…aromatherapy. It’s definitely one I would try again and would work well when entertaining scent-sensitive guests.
