To make your own candles, you will need wax, wicks, candle containers, a double boiler or heat-resistant container, a thermometer, and a stirring utensil. If desired, you can also use fragrance oils, dye chips, or dried flowers.
Start by melting the wax in your double boiler or heat-resistant container over low-medium heat, stirring occasionally. While the wax is melting, attach wicks to the container jars and make sure they are centered. You can also add fragrance oils and dye chips to the melted wax for added scent and color. Be sure to pour the melted wax carefully and let it cool. Once poured, you can also drop any dried flowers for decoration. Once the wax has cooled, trim the wicks before lighting the candle. Always prioritize safety by never leaving a burning candle unattended. Enjoy the process of making your very own DIY candles!
