Comforts of Home. It was the price that drew me in again, but I was also curious because this shop uses palm wax for their tarts. I've been seeing people talk about it on YouTube and they all comment on the crystallized look of it. Like the other shops I discovered that day, I messaged the owner to ask if she would be adding fall scents. She said they would be added after September 1, so I decided to go ahead with a small order just to see how the tarts are, and to decide if I would go back and order more later.
So how cool does that palm wax look? It really does look crystallized! And it feels so . . . different. A lot of times tarts have a sort of soft, oily feel from all the fragrance oils packed into them. These feel absolutely dry, and kind of light. I've read that they are much easier to remove from the warmer, and I believe it just from feeling them unmelted. I also like the presentation of these particular tarts. They have such a clean look about them, being wrapped in paper (as you see in the top photo) and then inside the little zip bags that remain so spotless. I was surprised and impressed to find these paper wrappers are simply cupcake papers! Clever! Kinda like the one soap vendor I posted about who used plain ol' coffee filters to wrap their bars.
These tarts are .75 oz and sell for $.99 each. I really liked that they are sold in single packs instead of the multi-packs you usually find. This allows you to try a scent or just the tart in general to see how you like it without committing to a larger amount.
Shipping was a bit longer on this one, but still not bad. I ordered on Thursday morning and received the package the following Saturday. Shipping cost was very reasonable.
I'm very curious about how this palm wax will work. Will the scent be stronger? Last longer? Or no noticeable difference? We'll see!
Have YOU tried Comforts of Home? Or palm wax in general? I'd love to hear about it.
