Clamshell Wax Tart Kit Clean and Sanitize

Make sure that you are completely ready to begin this project, so you will not run into any issues during your crafting process. So, you will want to get all your equipment ready on your workspace and make sure everything is clean as well. First, retrieve and clean out your equipment. Next, sanitize your workspace, including the surface you’re working on and the stove top. Then, your area should be prepared enough to start this melt tart making craft.

Clamshell Wax Tart Kit Double Boiler

Before you begin melting, you will want to make sure that you are prepared to safely heat your wax. The best way to avoid overheating ingredients is a double boiler, so we are going to go over how to create one. Now, take your large pot and add a couple inches or so of water, you will be able to adjust this later. Next, simply place your pouring pot into a larger pot of water. Place this on the stove top and in the next step you will use this device for heating.

Clamshell Wax Tart Kit Melting the Pillar of Bliss WaxFirstly, you are going to be melting your Pillar of Bliss Wax. So, take your provided wax and add one pound into your melting container. You can melt this amount, but you should have been provided with one pound of Pillar of Bliss Wax. Replace the melting container into the large pot of water. Next, turn on your stove top and get the water in your large pot to boil. Occasionally, you will stir the wax with a stainless steel spoon as it melts.

Clamshell Wax Tart Kit Dividing the Wax

Clamshell Wax Tart Kit Dividing the WaxSecond, you will divide your melted wax in half. Since we are going to be making half one scent and half of another scent, you will need to divide the wax equally at this point. The easiest way to do this is to place your paper bowl on the scale and weigh out a half pound of your melted wax. However, you can eye the amount if you are very careful to leave enough melted wax to create both scents. Also, make sure to replace your pouring pot containing the other melted wax on the stove to keep it melted.

First, you will add the red liquid candle dye to your melted wax. Get one of your pipettes, add a drop of your dye, and melt well with a stainless steel spoon. While you can add a second drop if you want your wax tarts to be a deeper red than the wax tarts pictured at the end, you should not add more than a few drops. All candle dye has a scent and you do not want to add so much that it overpowers the fragrance. Next, add your entire ounce of the Apple Cinnamon Fragrance Oil and mix well.

Then, bend the side of your paper bowl to create a spout. Next, pour your melted wax into your clamshells. Make sure that you don’t move these filled clamshells until they have completely hardened and set up.

There should be just enough to complete this second batch, but sometimes a few grams extra are added to the bags. This is just to make sure that you will have plenty of wax to complete your project. But, this means that weighing to make sure your recipe is more exact would be a good idea.

Then, you are going to be adding the dye and fragrance oil. So, retrieve your second paper bowl of melted wax. First, add one drop of the yellow liquid candle dye to your wax and mix well with a stainless steel spoon. The wax tarts pictured below have a second drop of dye included, but you can add either one or two drops. Next, you will be adding your entire ounce of Vanilla Bean Fragrance Oil to your melted wax. Mix your ingredients well and move on to the next step.

Next, pour the wax into your last two clamshell containers. You will want to make sure these wax melts are not moved until they are entirely set up.

Clamshell Wax Tart Kit Ready to Use

Finally, your wax melts are finished. After the wax melts fully set up, the four wax melts will be ready for you to use! Simply, chose the one you’d like to use and pop out one of the cubes from the clamshell container. Then, you will simply place it into the dish of a wax warmer and wait for the scent.

If you are on the fence about possibly making your own clamshell wax tarts, this clamshell wax tart kit will show you just how easy it is!

 

 

How to Make Clamshell Tarts

Everybody knows someone who just loves to burn tarts in their oil burner.  I have a sister that pays top dollar for those tarts, and swears that they are the only tarts she will use.  I took on this challenge at least that is what I thought it was, and have now successfully changed her over to making her own custom tarts.

My sister has a  scent for every season type.  She had her go to fragrances.  A light floral for spring, a zesty citrus kick scent for summer, a mossy green outdoor scent for fall, and the tried and true Apple Cinnamon for winter.  This was one concept I could not grasp.  I felt compelled to show her the ways of the scenting world, and since I work for Natures Garden, I knew a few in and outs.

For anyone looking to start making their own tarts, Natures Garden offers a Clamshell Wax Tart Kit.  This was my starting place for her as well.  What is really admirable about this kit is just how easy it is.  The kit comes with everything that you would need to make your first time clamshell tarts.  Wax, Fragrance Oils, Candle Dyes, Clamshells, Pipettes, Instructions, in fact this kit is so easy, it practically makes itself.

For those of you who already have the supplies to make tarts at home, here is the list of ingredients you will need for this clamshell tart recipe:

1 Pound Pillar of Bliss Wax
1 oz. Apple Cinnamon Fragrance Oil
1 oz. Vanilla Bean Fragrance Oil
Red Liquid Candle Dye
Yellow Liquid Candle Dye
Pipettes
4 Clamshell Tart containers
Stainless Steel Spoon
Stove
Paper Bowls (2)
Toothpick
Melting Container

Step 1: Place 1 pound wax into your melting container.  Using the double boiler method, melt wax on low on the stove until the wax is completed melted. Get your four empty clamshells ready.

Step 2: Preparing the Apple Cinnamon Original Tarts: Pour 1/2 of the melted wax into a paper bowl.  Start by adding 1 drop of red liquid candle dye; add more if desired.

Step 3: Add 1 ounce of Apple Cinnamon Original fragrance oil to the melted wax. Stir. Keep remaining melted wax on stove at a low temp setting.

Step 4:  Bend the side of the paper bowl to make a pour spout, and quickly pour the melted wax into two clamshells. Do not move the clamshells until the wax has completely hardened and set up.

Step 5: Preparing the Vanilla Bean Tarts: Pour the other half of the melted wax into a paper bowl. Using a pipette, add 1 drop of yellow liquid candle dye.  Add more if desired.

Step 6: Add 1 ounce of Vanilla Bean fragrance oil to the melted wax.  Stir.

Step 7: Bend the side of the paper bowl to make a pour spout.  Quickly pour the melted wax into two clamshells. Do not move the clamshells until the wax has completely hardened and set up.

 Step 8: Break off chunks of the clamshell tart and place them into a potpourri burner and fill your room with the wonderful aromas of Apple Cinnamon and Vanilla Bean!

It is just as simple as that.  It did not take long to make these wonderful little clamshell tarts, and they smell amazing in your oil burners too.  Feel free to use any of Natures Gardens Fragrance Oils to make your own clamshell tarts.  My sister is super excited to get started on her own personal clamshell tart line, and I have a feeling I will be getting some homemade tarts for a gift very soon.
