Lighting a candle can transform any space making it more comfortable and inviting. Certain scents can even create a relaxing atmosphere to make it easier to unwind after a long day. But with all the joy that a candle can bring, there are downsides.

For one, some places — like offices, classrooms and dorm rooms — don't allow candles due to the danger of an open flame. Second, a candle obsession can get pricey. So if you feel like you're burning money each time you light a candle or you're banned from lighting candles at all, an electric candle warmer might be the perfect solution. 

One type of candle warmer, a wax melter, provides a hot plate where you can place scented wax cubes, letting them melt and release a wonderful fragrance into the room without the fiery flame. Warming lamps, a similar option, allow you to place a candle above or below a bulb that slowly warms the candle's wax, filling a room with its scent. Candle warmers can be used in dorms, offices and other spots where you can't get away with striking a match. It's possible you've seen candle warmers popping up on your Instagram and TikTok feeds. For people who simply aren't fans of turning on the "big light" in a room, candle warmers add a romantic charm to any desk, countertop or corner. (And that's in addition to keeping the room smelling great.) 

Besides the safety a candle warmer brings, they come in absolutely adorable designs as well as modern sleek models that can fit into any decor style. Below, check out our picks for the best candle warmers you can buy from Amazon.
