Guest OldGlory Posted September 5, 2014 Share Posted September 5, 2014 Warmers are going to be big again this fall/winter/holiday season. There's lots of good information on the board but I would like to compile it on one thread. Sort of a one stop reference for everyone making melts. I would like to discuss the different types of warmers in context - plate style with a ceramic bowl on top, light bulb style, and the older tealight style warmers if anyone is using them. I would also like to discuss the different wattages of light bulbs. Next I would like to see which waxes/wax blends work best in the different types of warmers. While we can't actually discuss every possible wax combination, we can say that a particular wax is a pillar blend or a container blend, and about how much fragrance load you are using. So, for those of you who have put a lot of time and effort into studying warmers and melts, could you summarize what you are doing that is producing better than average results (which we realize is going to be somewhat subjective)? Include 1) your wax(es) choice and whether is it a pillar wax or container wax, 2) your fragrance load, 3) the type of warmer that works best for you and the wattage of the light bulb if applicable, and finally, 4) your result ( example:strong throw, lasts 2 weeks if warmed for one hour per day) I think this will be a very valuable resource for seasoned melt makers as a comparison, and for newbies as a place to begin their testing. Thanks in advance for your input! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
