I abdsolutely LOVE Yankee Candles, they're by far the best candles out there and the scents are just amazing. One thing Yamkee Candles have in their range is Tarts. They're small wax tarts that don't have a wick that you light like a normal candle. You need a tart burner to be able to burn them, tart burners look just like oil burners you place a candle in the bottom and the tart at the top. Yankee have a wide range of different tart burners in all different styles. I have a really gorgeous silver and black smashed glass effect one and a sweet Christmas one that I bring out for the Christmas period every year. From personal experience I would suggest buying a proper Yankee Candle tart burner, I tried using normal oil burner and it got too hot before the tart had melted and shattered!!!
Using the tart is very simple, you just remove it from it's wrapper, place in the dish at the top of the burner and light a non scented tea light underneath it. The wax begins to melt with the heat until it's totally liquid and the fragrance fills the air in the room. Leave it on until the candle runs out or blow it out whenever you like. Once the candle is blown out the wax quickly solidifies. I've found you can get 3 full burns from a tart before the scent is no more. Getting the was out of the burner is very easy. I just place the whole burner in the freezer for about 15 minutes and then it just slides out cleanly.
Now onto the scent. Lemon Lavender is by far my favourite Yankee scent. I've bought it in the full size candles and tarts and keep coming back to it. It's lovely and strong and true to it's name, it really does smell of lemons and lavender. It's so fresh and relaxing I just love it. I once had a tart on in the front room and my sister came over to visit and as soon as she walked through the door she exclaimed she could smell it all the way outside and it was gorgeous!!!!
Yankee candle tarts are available to buy from a wide range of places from QVC to ebay to Halfords to dedicated Yankee Candle websites like yankeedoodle. They're usually priced at 99p each.
