What Are The Basics Of A Tart?
What is a tart?
That is the most common question asked! Here's what a tart is! Tarts are similar to candles. Unlike candles, though, tarts are wick-less and are slowly warmed from a small tea light or electric source from below. They melt at a cooler temperature allowing the fragrance to diffuse more rapidly and evenly than candles. They will fill your room with the perfect amount of fragrance! Soy tarts are SOOT-FREE! This means no damage to your walls, ceilings, furniture, curtains, or carpets! Buying soy tarts supports our American soy bean farmers. All of our tarts are made from USA soy-derived wax. They can be burned on a tart warmer using tea lights, on an electric tart warmer, or in a heavy glass container (such as ramekins) on a candle warmer or coffee warmer.
What is the shelf life of tarts?
Tarts will last a year or longer if stored properly. However, the color may fade. How many hours of burn time do tarts have? This all depends on what type of method you are using to melt your wax. Some tarts have known to be burned for 72 hours and still going strong. A lot of times this varies by fragrance. On the average 12-20 hours per tart.
What is the best way to store my tarts?
Keep them in the polypropylene bag that they arrive in. Please do not use Ziplock bags or Saran Wrap because these products will suck the quickly diminish the scent of your tarts. Try and store your tarts in a dry dark space to help keep the color from fading.
Do my tarts need to cure?
Yes, soy is a natural wax and needs to cure. By doing this you are binding the scent with the wax for a better hot throw. Recommended cure time is about 7 days.
