Candle warmer lamps are the new TikTok-favorite accessory to add to your cart

It's true: candle warmer lamps are heating up FYPs, and you'll want to add one (or five) to your home

In the latest edition of "TikTok Made Me Buy It," candle warmer lamps are coming in hot—but not too hot. 

We're always curious how to make candles last longer, and it appears the answer has been hiding in our FYP all along. These clever must-haves are an alternate way to burn the best scented candles without actually striking a match: the heat from the lightbulb melts the wax, and in turn, fills your home with your favorite aroma. 

Not only do the adorable items up the hygge factor in your abode, but they make things safer if you have babies or fur babies running around. Plus, you won't get any soot! Cute, safe, effective—sounds like a win-win to us.

(If you're still burning those new Yankee Candle Christmas scents—Peppermint Pinwheels, anyone?—perhaps you should consider making the switch to a warmer lamp?)

Do candle warmer lamps work?

Yes, candle warmer lamps slow down the melting process for the wax—burning from the top down—which in turn will make your candle last longer. Who wouldn't want their favorite picks to live a few extra weeks? We're ready to rock and roll come fall and all-things pumpkin spice. (Just sayin'!)

Are candle warmers better than burning? 

According to Candle Warmers Etc., there are a few advantages to consider, including the fact that flames are not present, there is no soot build-up and the slow-burning process gives you more bang for your buck by extending the candle's lifespan.

When the time comes and you feel like switching to another lighting trend, get your glow on with colorful sunset lamps that TikTok and Gen Z also swear by.

(Do note that candle warmer lamps, and sunset lamps, should not be left unattended.)
