Is there a difference in tart burners and oil warmers? Unscented or scented?

Yes, there is. Hello. I started this discussion to help those that have the very same question. I currently work in a candle company and have just been introduced to oils and we have gotten oil warmers to go with. We were trained on them so we could answer the questions of customers about the products. So what are the diffeences? With oil warmers, you place about 20 drops of oil into an oilwarmer and put an unscented tealight in the bottom. After lighting the tealight, you will immediately fill up a room with your scented oil. Scented oils are not meant to be burned just warmed so they have to have a special warmer that has plenty of air flow and the tealight is a little bit farther from the bowl that the oil would sit in. Tart Burners on the other hand are just that, burners. You have to have a high enough heating source to actualy melt the wax. That said, you can expect to smell your tart when the wax starts to melt. The tart burners have a smaller opening than the oil warmers do and they have a minimal air flow. And you have your choice of using a plug in tart burner or one that requires an unscented tealight. Also I have had many question asked at work do you have to use unscented tealights or can you use scented tealights when using an oil warmer or a tart burner? The answer is ALWAYS unscented. The scented tealights gets too hot for the bottom of your burner and it could over time or with in a couple of uses, damage your burner. I hope this has helped some of you and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Thank you. Laurie
