FAQs

General FAQS:

When will a product be back in stock? Here at The Wax Store we are a family run business. We aim to restock everything within two weeks but this may vary.

I forgot to use a discount code, can I use it after I have placed an order? Unfortunately once an order has been processed we are unable to amend them. You can request to cancel the current order and place a new one, just email us at help@thewaxstore.co.uk

Are your items safe to use around pets? All of the fragrances we do are non-toxic. So providing they are burned out of reach of your animal there is no risk of it harming them.

Would you like to collaborate with me? If you love our brand, and are looking to collaborate, please send us an email with your Social Media profiles and tell us why you would like to work with our brand.

What can I use my wax melts in? You can use our wax melts in either a tea light wax melt burner or a electric wax melt burner. Please avoid using oil burners (the flame of the tea light will be less than 10cm away from the top of the burner) as wax is not designed to go in there and your wax will become very hot, very quickly meaning you will burn off the scent too fast.

How do I use my wax melts?  Just cut/snap off as much as you would like to use and pop the wax in the well of your suitable wax burner to enjoy hours of amazing fragrance. Please be careful to not overfill your wax burner to avoid spillages. Also please keep out of the way of children, pets and draughts. 

Do you do wholesale orders? Yes we do! We currently supply to a number of different places! Please get in touch via email - info@thewaxstore.co.uk and we will send you over our wholesale information.

Do you do custom or personalised orders? Yes! Pop us a message and we can create anything you would like.

Are you CLP compliant and fully insured? Absolutely! Every item I send will have a CLP label attached to the product. I am fully insured. 

What is CLP? CLP is a legal requirement for all scented wax products sold. It lists any allergens that maybe in your wax. The allergens may be different for every scent. There is also the precautionary statements listed on this label. These labels are needed in case of an allergic reaction or in case the wax is accidentally ingested; Its there so your health professional can refer to what allergen is in the melt so they can provide appropriate care. Our number is also listed on these labels in case the health professional needs any further information.

What wax do you use for your products? We use a parasoy custom blend in our products which contains a vegetable based soy wax and a food grade paraffin wax. We use this wax, as after years of testing this combination gives off a stronger scent throw and the scent lasts a long time!

Are your products vegan and cruelty free? Yes! All the products we use including the dye and fragrance oils are vegan and cruelty free.

Is your Mica reasonably sourced? Yes! We only source our Mica from ethically sourced manufacturers. Our Mica is also vegan friendly, natural and 100% cruelty free.

Is your packaging recyclable? Yes! All of our packaging is recyclable. We use PET plastic for our products, as well as packaging them with biodegradable packing peanuts and cardboard.
