Ever lit a candle...then a few hours later left the house and wondered, “Did I blow that out?” Wax warmers take the potential scandal out of candles but give you the same warm kiss of light and scent. Some even double as mug warmers!
The one thing a candle warmer doesn’t have, for better or worse, is a light-emitting flame. But many warmers feature a bulb inside to give off that warm, flattering glow.
Using a jar candle inside a wax warmer works the same way tarts do. Just place the glass on the warming plate, plug it in and presto, change-o: flameless candle!
If the idea of a mug warmer immediately makes you catastrophize (liquid beverage + electrical device = potential disaster), worry not: Any reputable combo candle/cup warmer features a heating plate coated in waterproof thermal conductive glass, so no worries if you accidentally spill.
