If you want to grow an orange tree, then you will want to learn a bit about how to care for them. First, you may want to consider getting a tree from a nursery rather than starting from scratch. If you start from a seed, it can take the tree up to 15 years to produce any fruit. Instead, gardeners will employ a grafting technique that will take from a grown tree, so you won’t have to wait as long for your fruit. Also, an orange tree needs full sun and prefers subtropical climates. In the US this tree thrives in zones 9-11, which you can find on the USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map. Additionally, these plants enjoy soil that drains, but holds moisture. So, a deep and loamy soil with a pH around 6 or 7 would be best for your orange tree.

Once your tree has been planted, you will want to water thoroughly to prevent your tree from drying out. After a few weeks to about a month, you can begin to slowly decrease the amount of watering to once a week.

Generally, it is thought that growing orange trees need about 1 to 1.5 inches of water per week. Additionally, you won’t need to prune your tree too much.

You will also need a pot filled with a few inches of water and a stove top. Your pouring pot will then be placed into the pot of warm water. Also, you will need a thermometer because you will need to add the fragrance oil at a certain temperature and you need to make sure the wax isn’t too hot when you pour.

Also, you will need to make sure you have a least have your basic supplies, which are candle wax, a scented oil, and packaging supplies. While there are many choices and options for customizing your wax melts, these two key ingredients are all you need to create your scented wax tarts.

There are many different types of waxes available from Natures Garden. We recommend using a pillar wax for your melts if you are putting them into a mold. However, there are still quite a few that are great when it comes to making a wax melt using a container wax. Choosing the type of wax is very important to the quality of your scented wax melts. So, you may want to learn a bit about your options before choosing a wax.

Beeswax is a great choice for making wax tarts. It is perfect for creating hard wax tarts that are easy to package and use. You can either scent this wax on its own or add about 5-10% to a paraffin wax. Adding beeswax to paraffin wax will increase the integrity of the wax melt, which will make it easy to package and then use later. Also, adding some beeswax to your recipe will improve the color and your burn time of your wax tart.

Speaking of paraffin wax, WOW Wax is a paraffin blend that is soft, creamy and has an excellent scent throw. While you may want to use this wax to make wax tarts, it could be difficult to make tarts. When you go to remove a wax melt from your clamshell or mold, the wax is likely to stick the container. This will ruin the shape and lead to a mess. So, this is when the beeswax comes in handy! Adding a portion of stearic acid or beeswax will make the wax harder and easier to use for making wax tarts. Alternatively, you could package your soft wax melts into portion cups. This will make it easier to transfer the wax to the warmer and cut down on some of that mess.

Similarly, Joy Wax is a candle wax that blends soy with other ingredients to enhance the quality. So, Joy Wax will be a bit soft, as well. However, there are ways that you can effectively use this wax. Again, you could use individually portioned containers and just squeeze the wax into your warmer. Also, you can use Stearic Acid to harden your wax tarts.

Scented oils are an important part of creating your own wax tarts. Your fragrance oil warmers won’t be able to do much without a great scent.
