What Are Snap Bars, and How Are They Used?

Whether you have heard of them or not, wax melt snap bars are quickly becoming a very popular option for creating the ideal environment in which to relax. Scented wax melts are much more potent than scented candles. Let's get into some of the more interesting facts behind snap bars!

What is a Snap Bar?

Snap bars are essentially wick-less candles that come in an easy to use format.  Each 50 gram bar is supplied as 5 segments in a handy storage container.

Snap BarsOur melt bars are made from eco-friendly soy wax, infused with premium UK made fragrance oils. They are vegan friendly and cruelty free. The packaging is made from recycled plastic which is also itself fully recyclable.

As you may know, there are two types of burners. First are electric burners, which are plugged into an electrical socket. The heat is generated by an electrical heating element that's usually located inside the burner. As more heat is generated, the wax begins to melt.

The other type of burner is the classic tealight burner, which uses a tea light to heat your wax. A tea light is a small, cylindrical candle that is contained inside a metal or plastic cup. When the wick on the tea light is lit, the flame transfers heat to a container located above the tea light. This transfers heat to the container, and the snap bar begins to melt.

How Do You Use a Snap Bar?

Our wax melt snap bars are supplied in attractive white eco-friendly packaging.

Each of our bars has 5 segments. The melt is used by snapping off a section and placing it inside your burner dish. The wax burner is then lit or plugged into the wall, depending on whether you're using an electric or tea light burner, and heat is generated that melts the wax. As the wax melts, it releases fresh, relaxing scents in the air.

Snap bars come in a variety of different scents, so you can choose which scents are right for you.

What Are The Advantages of Snap Bars?

Some of the key advantages snap bars provide are:

  • Easy to use - Just snap a segment off and add to your burner, no more cutting wax.
  • Easier to store - The flat shape of the bars means they're easier to store in a variety of containers.  They also stack nicely meaning no more messy piles of melts.
  • An ideal gift - The attractive packaging means our snap bars are ideally suited to give as gifts.
