How long do your wax melts last for?

Each melt will fragrance fo 20 hours. Some melts last longer, citrus scents tend to be the longest lasting, but all wax melts should give you a minimum of 20hrs fragrance, when used with a 4hr tealight or an electric oil burner.

How do I clean my wax burner?

Our soya wax is very soft and can easily be cleaned. We recommend: wait for it to go hard and 'pop' it out with a spoon. Give it a good shove with a spoon and it should pop out whole. Soya wax is a natural product so it does vary from batch to batch. If you are having trouble getting your wax out. Let it melt ever so slightly before popping it out. If you are having trouble removing it, it means your wax burner isn't glazed or the glaze is wearing off. You can scoop it out with a spoon when hard as the wax is very soft.

Where can I buy refills?

You can buy online, buy from our shop in Stamford, find us at a local show, or look on our stockist page for your local Freckleface Stockist.

CLP Compliance - Are you allowed to sell wax melts pick & mix?

We are the first company to sell wax melts in this pick & mix form, so we are breaking the mould (no pun intended!) and to do that questions are always going to arise, so we thank you for your interest.

Included in each tube of wax melts is a long thin leaflet that has all of the ingredients and warnings needed for all 32 fragrances.

Please be assured that all Freckleface products comply with CLP requirements and we have been inspected by Trading Standards at various events with no issues.

Freckleface wax melts are purposely very small to reduce the impact on the environment and don't use any plastic packaging so they fall under Article 29 of the CLP Regulations. Thankfully government bodies are now recognising the impact packaging has on the environment and are supporting businesses who are trying to reduce packaging.

As with pick & mix sweets and pick & mix bath bombs mixing the fragrances is only an issue if you don't display all of the ingredients, so regardless of which wax melts you choose you will get the CLP information for all of our melts, allowing us to sell them pick & mix.
