Recipe Directions

  1. NOTE: If you are making these products for sale, good manufacturing practices recommend you wear a hairnet, gloves and a mask. We also recommend a clean apron.
  2. In a metal pan, place 2 oz. each of Yellow Beeswax and Palm Kernel Flakes. Over low heat on stovetop, heat until completely melted.
  3. Remove from heat and stir to make sure everything is completely melted.
  4. Add 12 ml of fragrance oil and mix well. This is 10% fragrance oil added to the wax. If fragrance is too strong, cut back to 8% of 10 ml.
  5. Using a metal measuring spoon, take out 1 Tablespoon of the melted wax and put into a very small metal cup or a glass bowl.
  6. To this, add (1) .15 ml scoop of the Crimson Powder Sparkle. Mix well. If it starts to harden and turn white, place on low heat to remelt.
  7. Using a plastic dropper, squeeze the red wax into the dropper and fill the apple part of each mold cavity. Be careful to fill in the leaves as well.
  8. Place mold into freezer for about 5 minutes to let these harden. Remove mold and set on counter.
  9. Checking that the remaining wax temperature is around 150°F, fill mold cavities almost to the top. When all cavities are filled, place mold in freezer until totally hardened.
  10. Remove wax tarts from mold and set aside.
  11. Melt remaining red wax and pipe into 1-2 apples. If the dropper has hardened, place in microwave under a paper towel and heat in 3 second increments until the dropper is clear of wax.
  12. Once red wax has hardened, pour remaining white wax over these. You may have 1-2 tarts remaining. Place in freezer until set.
  13. Repeat above steps to make next batch of 9 air fresheners.
  14. These directions are designed to make 3 batches of tarts rather than 1 large batch because the wax will need to be reheated too many times.
  15. Our recipe yielded 27 air fresheners. We packaged 5 tarts in 5 bags and added 1 extra tart in two of the bags.
  16. Caution should be used to not leave in hot cars over 80°F as these will soften and melt. Scents should last for about 30 days.

"I'm a little confused about these tarts. Are they to be used in a tart warmer or just left out as an air freshner? I'm looking for a recipe to make wax melts for warmers, will this work?"
