Oil/wax burners – Electric or tealight – which ones work best?

Updated: Mar 24, 2021

We are often asked which oil burners are better? We sell both because either works really well but is dependent on personal choice. Below we give you the lowdown on the benefits of each one.

Tealight oil burners

These oil burners require a lit tealight to be placed beneath the wax dish which then melt the wax, giving off a lovely aroma around your home. Tealight oil burners do tend to give off a stronger scent than electric burners as they get quite hot (the flame is hotter than the lamp). We recommend you only ever use a 4 hour tealight in our oil burners as 8 hour ones can make your burner get too hot causing it to crack. There are gas candle lighters that make lighting tealights very simple.

As a tealight is a naked flame these should never be left unattended and if you have young children or pets an electric one may be a better alternative. Never place a naked flame in a draught or near anything that could catch fire.

Electric oil burners

Electric oil burners are simple to use; simply plug in, switch on and the lamp will heat and melt the wax. Because they do not get as hot as tealight oil burners, the wax will last longer but will not give off as strong a scent. We find our customers who have young children or pets prefer this type of burner.

Whichever type you choose please follow our safety guidance for use and keep wax melts out of the way of children and pets during use and storage.

We have a wide range of oil burners for sale and we are constantly adding to our range which you can view here.
