Soy Wax Melts are used in an oil burner instead of oil and water to release wonderful fragrances in your desired living space. Soy wax melts are solid wax and they are completely wickless. Zero toxins, carcinogens or pollutants mean that soy wax is less likely to trigger allergies. They are made from the same scented soy batches that fill our ultra scented soy candles. The wax melts are packaged in clear plastic clam shell. The wax portion is 3 inches long, by 2 inches wide by one inch deep. When broken each snap is a one inch cube. Soy snaps work best when each snap is broken right in the package by the customer. Soy wax is much healthier for us as it doesn't emit any nasties into our atmosphere unlike non-renewable parrafin waxes that can contain carcinogenic substances which are harmful to our bodies.
