Default Tarts with EO?

I have made tarts with fos but never with eos. Does anyone do this and what % do you use? Thanks in advance!

I have found after several years of trying and testing that EO's just do not do well in my wax combination and I can never, no matter what the method, get EO's to hot throw in my applications, so for me, it is not worth the expense of the EO.
Not when I can get an FO to blow my doors off at 4-6% with very little effort on my part.

Whatever you do, do with determination.

Thanks for the reply! I was afraid that was what I was going to hear. Guess that's why you don't see any out there for sale!

I use EO blends in my wax melts. I use a combination of soy wax, bees wax and palm wax for my melts and get a pretty good scent throw.

I've found that EOS mixed with water and put in one of those warmers are great.
