We understand that certain fragrances can trigger reactions in some individuals. However, it's important to note that it's the specific scent, not the wax itself, that can cause such effects. While some scents may contain a small number of sensitizers, we take every precaution to ensure your safety and minimize any potential sensitivity. If you're unsure, check the CLP information available upon request. Enjoy our strongly scented wax melts with confidence! 

Fragrance sensitivities are a common concern for many individuals. Some scents can trigger a range of physical reactions, from mild irritation to more severe allergic responses. Understanding these sensitivities requires delving into the complex chemical composition of fragrances and how it can impact our well-being.

Fragrances, whether found in candles, wax melts, perfumes, or other scented products, consist of a blend of essential oils and aroma chemicals. It is these aroma chemicals that can sometimes lead to sensitivities. Here's a more comprehensive look at this topic:

  1. Aroma Chemicals: These chemicals, either synthetic or natural, are used to create specific scents. While they are generally safe for the majority of people, some individuals may exhibit sensitivity or allergies to particular aroma chemicals. Notable examples include Citral, Limonene, Linalool, Geraniol, and Eugenol.

  2. Allergic Reactions: For individuals allergic to specific aroma chemicals, exposure can trigger various allergic responses. These reactions can vary from skin irritations like rashes or hives to respiratory issues such as coughing, sneezing, or even headaches. In more severe cases, individuals may experience nausea or dizziness.

  3. Individual Variability: It is important to recognize that fragrance sensitivities vary greatly from person to person. What might cause a reaction in one individual may not affect another. Sensitivity can be influenced by genetic factors, previous exposures, and overall health.

  4. Testing and Identifying Sensitivities: If you suspect that certain scents cause discomfort, it's essential to pinpoint the specific fragrances that might be responsible. One effective way to do this is to maintain a fragrance diary and note your reactions. Additionally, examining the chemicals listed on the Classification, Labeling, and Packaging (CLP) information can help you keep a log of the specific aroma chemicals associated with your sensitivities. (This can be used with any wax melt maker, and scented products)

  5. Regulation and Safety: The fragrance industry is highly regulated to ensure consumer safety. Organizations like the International Fragrance Association (IFRA) establish guidelines and restrictions for the use of aroma chemicals in various products. Manufacturers are obligated to disclose these chemicals through CLP information.


At Dayas Essence, your safety is our utmost priority. We take every precaution to ensure the well-being of our customers. Our fragrances are carefully chosen to contain minimal sensitizers. However, it's essential to note that some of our scents may include a small number of sensitizers. This is inherent to the oils used in crafting these scents, and it's a common practice within the industry.

When you select a Dayas Essence product, you can anticipate an intensely aromatic wax melt experience, thanks to our use of three times more oil. We understand that everyone has their unique preference when it comes to scent intensity.


If you lean toward a milder fragrance, you have the flexibility to either carefully halve our wax melt tubs or use a smaller 7g piece, equivalent to just over a quarter of the standard size.


Our aim is to ensure that your fragrance journey is tailored precisely to your liking.
