Wax Melts the Curing Process and Best Practices for Optimal Fragrance

What is the curing process and why is it important?

The curing process is an essential step in the creation of wax melts. It refers to the time it takes for the fragrance oil to fully bond with the wax, resulting in a stronger and longer-lasting scent. Skipping the curing process can result in weak or uneven fragrance distribution and shorter burn times. Properly cured wax melts will have a more intense and consistent scent, making for a better fragrance experience overall.

How long should you cure wax melts for optimal fragrance infusion?

At Serathena, we recommend curing wax melts for at least 2 weeks. As a general rule, the more complex the fragrance, the longer the curing time should be. It's important to note that patience is key when it comes to curing wax melts, as rushing the process can result in subpar fragrance performance.

How to Store Wax Melts for Curing 

To ensure optimal fragrance infusion, there are several best practices to follow during the curing process. These include:

Temperature and humidity control:

Keep your curing area at a consistent temperature between 60-80°F and humidity level between 30-60%.
Avoid exposure to light and air: Light and air can cause fragrance oils to break down, leading to weaker scents. Keep your wax melts in an airtight container in a dark area.

Use high-quality fragrance oils:

Using high-quality fragrance oils can make a significant difference in the final scent of your wax melts. Choose oils specifically designed for candle making for best results.

Storing and using your cured wax melts

Proper storage and usage of cured wax melts can ensure maximum fragrance performance and longevity.


Here are some tips:

Store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and heat sources.
Use in a well-ventilated area to ensure even fragrance distribution.
To prevent tunneling, burn your wax melts long enough to allow the entire top layer to melt before extinguishing the flame.
Do not exceed the recommended burn time for your specific wax melt product.
