Has anyone done any comparison which will last the longest and such?

I've made a small test batch of the salt version and let it dry. Tested it right now and it gives much stronger scent and smoke more compare to wax. Is this how it normally behaves, the smoking I mean?

Any thoughts much appreciated.

I have tried the simmering granules and, like you said, the scent is stronger but I also think it burns off quicker.  The melts, I think, seem to have not quite the pow but keep going and going.  Not sure which a prefer though  Undecided

Yes, it looses scent very fast I noticed during the day. Had it on now and then and it's already all gone. Wax on the other hand, as you say, one can burn for hours. Wax with some EOs will have scent even after 8 hours of burning time.

What about a higher fragrance load in your melts?

The melts are ok Lindy and they last long I just thought it was a nifty solution with the salt. Have dropped the idea now. Smiley

The salts are cheaper to make than the soy waz melts but personally I prefer the clean nes of the wax melts.

Something in my head keeps saying Sodiun chloride  plus heat no
