Servings: 2 Candles
- 3 lbs soy wax chips
- 2 12 ounces glass jars
- 40 drops essential oils for two candles
- 2 large candle wicks
- 8 fresh or faux flowers to decorate with
Melt the wax chips in a microwavable glass bowl. Using a bowl with a spout is best.
Once the wax is completely melted, add in the essential oils. Personally, I like to use a lot of oil for a very strong scent. I use about 20 drops of each. Use more or less depending on your preference. Remember, it's not as strong of a scent once the wax hardens.
Add a little wax onto the bottom of the wick, (there is a small round metal disc) and then place it at the bottom of the jar.
Wrap the extra wick around the stick and rest it on top of the jar.
Pour the wax into the jars and let it harden. It will turn from clear to white!
Once the wax has dried, cut the remaining wick off.
Tie some beautiful flowers around the outside and give to a friend!
