Christmas wax warmers are fantastic for adding holiday scents to your home. I love that I can adjust the fragrance strength, use them as a night light, and even mix my own scents. Plus, there is no worry about open flames. I have picked out a few of my favorite wax warmers for this holiday season.
#1. – Plug-in Wax Melt Warmer
Beyond its Christmas-themed design, this wax warmer offers a lot of flexibility. One feature that makes it flexible is the ease of changing the wax. In barely a minute, you can change the scented wax to something different. Besides, it can be adjusted to disperse fragrance vertically and horizontally. You can readily adjust the direction of the scent to suit the conditions in your home.
Overall, it is pretty easy to use and is highly flexible. But it may struggle to melt wax in extreme cold.
#2. – Fragrance Wax Melts Warmer
One of the top features of this wax warmer is its design. The reindeer, Christmas tree, and starlit silhouette patterns are just so dreamy. Besides being beautifully designed, it comes with changeable light color. You can alter the colors to suit different parts of your home. This way, you get to experience different atmospheres with the same wax warmer.
Besides being aesthetically pleasing, this product is generally sturdy. Since they use LED lights, you can expect them to last longer than wax warmers that use other types of bulbs. Besides that, the lights heat at fairly consistent temperatures, minimizing the chances of damage to the ceramic body.
Like the first product on my list, this one may also struggle to melt wax in extreme cold. Plus, it would have been even better if it came with instructions.
#3. – Flickering Fireplace
If you have a minimalist interior and you need a wax warmer that fits in, this flickering fireplace should be perfect. But beyond being a perfect fit for austere designs, this flickering fireplace wax warmer bears an inscription that exemplifies what Christmas is all about.
Away from that, it uses a 25-watt bulb. With such power consumption, you can expect a fair amount of heat generation from this warmer. Under favorable conditions, it should be one of the hottest warmers on this list.
#4. – Wax Melt Warmer
If you like a simple Christmas-themed design, this one is for you! Just a few snowflakes on a red background. While simple, it is pretty cute.
Unlike the first STAR MOON wax warmer, this one comes with a 20-watts bulb. This means this warmer will most likely generate more heat than the other one. So, even in extreme cold, this is more likely to work.
It is pretty easy to use. Once you’ve assembled it, place the wax inside the wax compartment, then plug it into a 120v outlet.
While it is a pretty effective wax warmer, it would have been even better if it were bigger.
#5. – Nightmare Before Christmas Wax Warmer
The design is pretty much as the picture shows. So, you do not have to bother about getting something that looks way off. All you have to do is place some ‘nightmare before Christmas’ wax warmer squares in it, plug it in, and then switch it on. There isn’t much to worry about when using this product, but it would have been even more effective if it came in larger sizes.
#6. – Truck Wax Burner
This truck is the kind that can move through the snowy roads of the Christmas season with ease. It can take at least 2 waxes in its bed at a go and can be cleaned easily. If you are getting the black variant, you will most likely get more effective wax melting since the color black promotes radiation. But you may also get the red, blue, or green options if they suit your taste better. While many of the other wax warmers I talked about come with lights, this one doesn’t.
#7. – Electric Wax Warmer
Thanks to its pretty butterfly pattern, this glass is useful beyond wax warming; you can use it to create a dreamlike atmosphere in dimly lit or dark rooms.
It comes in 4 colors – blue, pink, green, and purple – and all 4 colors have the same butterfly pattern. So, you can have different colors for different parts of your house, creating a unique atmosphere in each place.
This Christmas wax burner is about the size of an iPhone, so having one unit may not suffice if you have big rooms. But beyond that, it is very decent.
#8. – White Wall Wax Warmer
Here’s another wax warmer with a lot of flexibility. Like the plug-In Wax Melter, you can adjust this product vertically and horizontally. This way, you can adjust the effusion of the scent from the warmer to match the conditions in the room.
Apart from that, this candle wax warmer may also serve as a bedtime light. Its dim bulbs give off warm-colored light that works just fine in bedrooms. There have been some complaints about the switch going bad too easily. But for people who did not experience that, this electric wax melter is good enough.
#9. – Night Light Wax Melter
You can tell how magical this glass would be when lit; the star and moon patterns all over it tell the story. Beyond the enchanting atmosphere it creates when lit, it is pretty easy to use. Like the rest I have discussed so far, all you have to do is plug this in, place the wax on the lid, and you’re good.
Thanks to its small size, this product is super cute. But the same small size is the reason one unit of this may not be sufficient for large rooms.
#10. – Camper With Christmas Tree Wax Warmer
If you wanted a Christmas tree wax warmer or something close, you should check this out. It comes as a red and white camper, carrying a glowing Christmas tree.
It is pretty simple to use like the rest. But unlike the others, you have to open the top of the tree to place the wax. I love these Christmas tree-scented wax warmer melts from Walmart for this camper. Also, the fragrance escapes through the windows of the camper.
#11. – Clear Mason Jar Fragrance Warmer
On its own, this glass jar is not necessarily a Christmas wax warmer. But if you add some artificial snow to the jar and attach a mini wreath to the sides, you can create the Christmas spirit.
Beyond being customizable, it spots a 25-watt bulb and a lid that can take as many as 3 waxes at once. Going by these, you can expect effective wax melting even in some of the coldest conditions. You can also adjust the number of waxes on it to regulate the intensity of the scent.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
How long can you keep wax warmers on?
The mode of operation of a wax warmer determines how long you can keep it on. Generally, electric wax warmers can stay on longer than tea light warmers. So, if you have an electric wax warmer, we are looking around 8-10 hours. But with a tea light wax warmer, around 4-6 hours.
Can you reuse candle wax in a wax warmer?
Yes, you can reuse candle wax in a wax warmer. As the wax warmer melts the wax, it releases the fragrance without burning the wax, so the wax remains intact. However, over time, the scent will diminish, and you may need to add new wax or fragrance oil to maintain the desired aroma.
Do electric wax warmers consume a lot of electricity?
Compared to most of the appliances in your home, electric wax warmers do not use a lot of electricity. On average, most of them consume 25 watts or less. If use them everyday for 10 hours, you may not use more than 100kWh of electricity.
When should I change my wax melts?
Change your wax melts when they stop effusing any scent.
How many wax melts to use?
The number of wax melts to use in a wax warmer depends on the size of the warmer and the desired fragrance intensity. Typically, one or two wax melts are sufficient for most standard-sized warmers. It’s best to start with one melt and add more if needed to achieve the desired scent strength.
