Mintie Bean waxes are hand poured in small batches using 100% soy wax, wax colourant and a blend of fragrance and essential oils. Our wax is slightly soft as we have opted to go with a high scent load.
You will receive one Scentcake unit at an approximate weight of 60 grams net. Due to the size of the Scentcake, we recommend you slice it into smaller pieces to use – as to avoid overfilling your burner :)
Scentcakes arrived shrink-wrapped (for transit safety) and with a label on the base containing fragrance and instructions of use. Please note that we do use wax embeds on top of the Scentcakes. Sometimes these are fragile, and may dent or snap in transit. We always do our best to package your items as carefully as possible; but please note that as the wax can still be used – refunds are not provided for waxes that arrive with dents/breakages.
Some Scentcakes come with glitter, mica and/or sugar sprinkles on top. Sprinkles can be picked off or removed once the wax is soft, if you prefer to not leave them in your burner.
What goes into the price of this wax?
We understand that the price point may seem a bit more top end than other waxes. However there are a few things to remember! Firstly, this wax is the same approximate size as a 6-cavity clamshell. Meaning you can get a minimum of 6 uses out of a Scentcake once it’s cut up. Secondly, our Scentcakes are far more creatively made than standard cavity waxes. It does take quite a bit of time to prepare our embeds (especially as some are decorated with mica or pigment, for extra effect) – sometimes we use up to 4 different embeds per Scentcake! We have trialled several waxes, and our current blend is softer – but the best in terms of setting without frosting or sinking. We also use a big variety of quality fragrance blends from several suppliers, some are imported specifically as well. We want to ensure we’re producing the best quality of wax, with the best presentation, the best throw and the best custom fragrance blends that we can – in addition to making each Scentcake fun and exciting for you to use – or to gift to a friend. The higher price point ensures we can keep investing back into Mintie Bean (fragrance, colour, moulds and general supplies etc) and continue creating.
Directions of Use
Scentcakes are made to be used in wax warmers only. Do not leave your wax warmer unattended, near children or pets. Ensure that nothing flammable is near the warmer when in use.
Once the fragrance starts to lessen (usually after several melts of the same piece of wax) you can switch it out for a new piece. Please take care to not overload your wax warmer.
Although our Scentcakes look fun and smell delicious – they are absolutely not to be ingested or to be left around children unattended.
About Mintie Bean
Mintie Bean is the name of my chonky ginger cat, who is a derpy sweetheart and very endearing. He has no relation to the wax business, which is a good thing because his favourite scent is kibble. He’s just a love in my life that I’m happy to share as the name for something I enjoy. Mintie Bean was my next step from Obscurus, which was boxing me in slightly creatively. With Mintie Bean I’m free to explore colour and aesthetic, different themes, and just have fun with fragrance and being bright/quirky.
