Some scents are only available in melts and not candles, please view the scent list below you may find some surprises!

Aegis of the Owl: In honor of both the bold and wise Athena a blend that calls to her and her patrons. Athena, also referred to as Athene,is the Greek goddess of wisdom, courage, inspiration, civilization, law and justice, strategic warfare, mathematics, strength, strategy, the arts, crafts, and skill. She is known most specifically for her strategic skill in warfare and is often portrayed as companion of heroes and is the patron goddess of heroic endeavor. Imbued with all the goddesses favorite things fruits, flowers, and sacred trees Aegis of the Owl is a sylvan unisex blend with notes of grapefruit, citruses, geranium, spruce and cypress on a soft suede bed. Use this scent to help inspire a little wisdom and heroism of your own.

Bombadil: “Come along, tell me now, who’s this jolly fellow? 
Bright blue his jacket is and his boots are yellow,
With lemon cake and blueberry jam-oh,
Tom Bom, jolly Tom, Tom Bombadillo!”

A MOST delicious lemon butter cake that has a great balance of sweet and tart, only to be complimented with an incredibly jammy blueberry jam and the tiniest touch of spice. Unlike a lot of gourmand scents Bombadil is cheery, light, delightful—and dare I say addictive.

Mint Mysticism: The ultimate cooler! A blend of fresh mints, basil and an earthy twist.  It’s creamy, minty herbal fresh, a new religion; Mint Mysticism!

Midnight Margarita: a blend of citrus and the star; puckery West Indian lime. Juicy and fresh skin refreshment.

Practical Magic: A very practical blend for a fresh clean start or to shake some bad juju. Herbal lavender, clary sage and a few extra secret herbs from near the garden gate accompany this bright fresh blend.

Renaissance Faire: The Renaissance Faire scent is an amalgamation of my favorite scent memories of the faire. Heady- but bright jasmine and roses from the herbalists hut behind the big cauldron, softly smoky sweet incense swirling everywhere, and that super refreshing black mint tea, that no matter how you try you just can’t seem to make the same way at home. Everything good about the faire without being the typical food scent.

Verbena: Sally is really putting that herbal magic to work here. This soap is bright and fresh as her small shop! Sweet citruses blended with white sage, lemon verbena, and sunny garden herbs. Loved by both men and women for it’s tart, zippy cheer!

Once Upon A Dream Silken Reverie Lotion – Over a full year in development these amazingly luxurious lotions will win you and your skin over. Made fresh from scratch these are creamy,rich, and nourishing- never greasy leaving your skin comfortable and silky soft. You have never experienced lotion like this!

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
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.

Wondering what the heck these wax tart things are?  Check out Hottie’s blog post here.   Wanting to peruse the other exclusive Rhinestone Housewife home fragrances?  Then click here and you can also some other general catalog and limited edition scents here!

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:
