How to make Handmade Lavender Rosemary Candles
Start by unwrapping the Soy Candle Making Kit. It already has everything needed to make your own candles so this is the perfect starter kitt. Pour the soy wax into the pouring pot. Add a cup of water to a sauce pan and place the pouring pot in the water. Heat over medium heat until the wax has melted – about 5-10 minutes.
Add 15-20 drops of essential oil to melted wax. The amount of essential oil will depend on the amount of wax you melt. I melted all the wax in the kit so I added 10 drops of lavender oil and 10 drops of rosemary oil.
Pour melted wax into jars. Add wick to center of jar. Hold wick in place using the wood craft sticks. Let candles sit for 24 hours.
Trim wicks leaving about half an inch.
Note – 14 ounces of soy wax fills two 8 ounce mason jars.
Oh my goodness! How easy was that?!
