How to make a candle tart

Guest Author - Benito Lugo

Candle tarts are small wickless like candles that are melted in a special container or candle warmer. They are simply placed in a wax potpourri warmer and lit below by an unscented tea light candle or electric warmer. As the wax melts, it releases its scent. They are simple to make and can be made in many type of shallow mold, tart pans, tea light candle molds or muffin tins. Any type of tin can be used as long as it has a smooth surface with openings that are wider than the base. This allows for easy melting.

Three types of tart candle warmers can be found at Yankee Candles website listed below.
