So what are Wax melts? First of all, wax melts are cubes of wax that have been highly fragranced. They are melted without the use of a wick in a special tart burner. When they are melted the wax releases a wonderful fragrance. Melts are very popular in today’s retail market. Wax melts are sometimes called wax tarts or wax potpourri, so if you see these terms they are interchangeaable.

The ingredients you will need to purchase to make these wax tarts are : 1 lb. of IGI 4794 Tart Wax, 1 ½ oz. Sage & Citrus Fragrance Oil , ¼ Block - French Candle Dye Block #14 an 4 Six Cavity Hinged Clamshells. All ingredients can be purchased directly from Wholesale Supplies Plus.

To make the wax melts you will need the following equipment: Metal Melting Pot - Used Exclusively for Wax, Spoon - Used Exclusively for Fragranced Wax and aCandy or High Temperature Thermometer
