Just wondered if any of you made them? I bought some from Hove temptations and they were lovely didn't smell cheap and nasty like some shop bought ones I have had... now that sounds snobby but you know what I mean..I don't use air fresheners just oil burners and incense sticks every day so just thought Id ask as I believe in supporting local businesses Wink no worries if no one does on here I will look around
how does your candles work Emma are they gorgeous and yummy smelling? you could sway me into buying some from ya  Wink

I know that mai does aroma beads??  I don't know what's happened to Andrea though (TH) her link doesn't work (tried direct too & emailed) and she's not been around for a while.  I hope she's ok.  Anyone heard from her??

I do remember seeing somewhere how to make them.  I'll have to do some digging  Wink

This is what I was thinking.  I know, I'm sure I've seen them just can't think where.  This could be interesting to find some resources on this  Wink

Hi Edith... sorry for the delay

You pop a tart in the top of your oil burner and light a plain tea light underneath... i burn my burner for 2-3 hrs a day and the fragrance lasts around 10 days. Then you dig it out with a spoon when its gone hard and you pop another one in!

Also the soy tarts dont get hot - you can dip your finger in a melted one and it is just warm to touch - but i dont recommend it. LOL  Spills clean up with soap and water too though i dont recommend moving a burner while its still warm lol

Mai no worries just do them when your ready honestly..don't know how you pack so much into your day considering your not in the best of health sorry don't want that to sound patronising ;)my sister has been seeing neurologists etc for the past year as she thinks she may have ms but can't get a diagnosis but I have told her not to give up she is still having ongoing tests..there are days that she cannot move her legs and arms apart from other things ...anyway thanks there is no urgent rush
Emma your candles look and sound very nice I think I might get some very soon for me,me,me and xmas pressies Wink

Hi Edith - I have plenty of scents in stock so no worries... if there are any you especially wanted there is around a 3 week wait at the moment to get the fragrances.

I'm doing Mai's order right now and I am addicted to the Black Rasp and Vanilla... and the Black Magic is divine too...   I love it when customers order a new fragrance that I havent tried yet!

Now then back to incense sticks - i wouldnt mind having a go myself actually as my wholesale customers would def be interested.
