...here are a few tips we have learned along the way:

 Wax Tarts made from soybean wax are 100% biodegradable, 
with no harmful petro-carbon soot to fill your lungs or get on your walls. 
With no flame you avoid many dangers and hazards associated with fires. 

2. You can choose to mix different scents to create a custom scent of your own. We recommend buying four,  2 oz. tarts OR get two, 4 oz. tarts for for mixing in jars on
