I love my Scentsy bulb melters. I have bought several and use them throughout my home. Since discovering their melters, I’ve also noticed the ones by ScentSationals and I’ve even purchased one of them. Love them!
All the bulb melters I have purchased come with a 25W light bulb. I decided long ago to change these out to 40W light bulbs. Although there are a number of different reasons to stick with the 25W light bulb, the 40W bulbs work better for me and my melting habits. I get a larger scent throw faster and I can melt just about any type of wax easily with the 40W light bulbs.
Here’s a pictorial of the fate of two Yankee Candle wax tart melts. First up, Honeydew Melon with a 25W bulb.
I ended up turning the melter off after 3 hours and changing out to a 40W bulb to finish melting this tart. Now for Fresh Comfort with a 40W bulb melter:
So there you have it. I will do another pictorial at a later date with other types of wax for comparison.
Do you use bulb melters? Which bulbs do you use?
Happy candle burning ~
***Disclaimer – Candlescoop does not in any way promote or endorse changing the bulb wattage on electric melters… this was a personal choice Andrea made and was posting her results. Should you give this a try, you will do so at your own risk and understanding that manufacturers of these melters do not recommend doing so.***
