I have one of those knock-off “Scentsy” candle melter warmers that I bought at Walmart for the fraction of the price. While grocery shopping recently I came across a rack of Salt City candles (my favorites), but at $17 a candle I was turned off by the price. I was delighted to see that Salt City had “melter tiles” that they claim can melt in any pot, and bought a cinnamon scent that I was eager to try.
I spent $4.50 for 6 large tiles. I was impressed with the cost, and in the package the cinnamon scent is definitely noticeable. I can smell the little tiles with the package open over a foot away, so I just knew these little candle melts were going to burn well. And I was right. Within minutes of placing a single cube in the melter warmer I have, the strong yet lovely scent of cinnamon was wafting throughout the living room.
I’m impressed. With Salt City candles being so expensive, I’m excited that I can buy the “melter tiles” instead, and still have that great scent Salt City candles are known for. I’ve been melting a single tile over and over again for 3 days, and the cinnamon scent is still strong. It’s a cinnamon scent akin to baking a pie or having a cinnamon stick in the house- that “home cooking” winter scent that smells great in the house in fall and winter. I’m simply in love. The smell lasts a long time, and even after remelting the same cube over a number of days, the scent is still great and wafts gently throughout the house, so when i come home I still have a lingering “apple pie” smell in the house, even though the warmer isn’t even on.
I especially like how the tiles melt so quickly. You don’t have to have a Salt City warmer to melt their tiles- my generic warmer works just fine, so I can enjoy a Salt City candle scent without paying the huge Salt City price. At $4.50 a package, and 6 large tiles in the packaging, and with a single tile melting strong after 3 days, I think I found a real winner.
I bought the “mixed berry” scent as well, and am eager to try that next. Perhaps I will melt it in with the cinnamon scent when the cinnamon starts to fade. Total I spent $9 for 2 scents, and for Salt City that’s a great price. If you’re on a budget but still want a candle scent that never fails like Salt City, try out their “melter tiles”- and give cinnamon a shot. It really warms up a home and brings a calming sensation to the increasingly cold days.
