Hottie’s Hot Pick Of The Week-Domestic Goddess Wax Tart

Hello hotties!   Sorry it’s been so long since my last Hot Pick but my muggle job has been keeping me quite busy these days.

Domestic Goddess Exclusive Wax Tart

Today I have for you my most favorite of home fragrances, The Rhinestone Housewife’s  exclusive Domestic Goddess  home fragrance wax tart.   Wax tarts are an amazing invention and so much safer than burning candles and I’ve been a happy convert for a couple of years now.   Domestic Goddess is described as:

Who says cleaning can’t be fun? The scent of a broken Pledge sprayer and the frozen raspberry margarita to take away the pain.

Each tart is approximately 2.5 ounces, and is in a plastic clamshell. Each tart can be broken into 6 tartlettes, each of which has a minimum throw of 12 hours.

What Are These Tart Warmers Anyway?

Good morning, hotties!   Wondering what the heck these tart warming things are?   Don’t worry, I didn’t know anything about them either until I was contacted by a friend who owns a business making them called Two Timing Tart.  She was kind enough to send me some samples to try out to see if they were something that I wanted to feature at The Rhinestone Housewife.

As a pet owner in the rainy and damp Pacific Northwest, I’m always looking for ways to keep the house fresh and yummy smelling.   As someone who once had a cat catch his tail on fire with a candle (kitty was fine, I noticed it the very moment it happened and shook it out!) I have a definite aversion to open flames and candles and such.    The tart warmers seemed like the perfect solution for my home.

How do they work?   Simple!   There are two different types of tart warmers that you can purchase.   One utilizes a tea light to warm the wax and the other uses a small light bulb.   Due to my aversion to fire (hey, I did play the Bride Of Frankenstein!) I chose to purchase the type that requires an electrical outlet.   There are many places that you can purchase them but I got mine at Hobby Lobby and Bed Bath & Beyond.

Once you decide where to put your warmer  you simply plug it in (or light the tea light), place one or two wax tarts on the bowl and sit back and enjoy the lovely scent wafting through your living space.   Each wax tart should provide 12 hours of scent.  How do you know when it’s time to put a fresh tart in?   As soon as  you can no longer smell it, it’s time to replace the wax tart.   The easiest way to replace the tart is to let it cool down and solidify, place the bowl in the freezer for ten minutes or so and then just pop the wax out. I generally use a bamboo skewer to nudge it out without scratching the bowl.    Remember to let the bowl warm up to room temperature before using again to avoid breakage.

Here is my cute little owl tart warmer that I found at Hobby Lobby for $15:
