INSTRUCTIONS FOR CANDLE MAKING:
Glue the wicks to the bottom of the jars/containers.
Clip the wick upright with a plastic clip at the top of the jars/containers.
Heat wax direct over a low fire or in a double boiler.
Be careful not to overheat the wax.
Stir occasionally (overheated wax will discolour and/or burn your wax).
Remove wax from fire and allow the wax to cool down for 5 minutes.
Add colour to your liking. Adding too much colorants can inhibit the burning of the flame so adding less is better then conduct a burn test.
At 65°C add in fragrance or essential oil at (Oils will evaporate if the wax is too hot)
Stir and mix gently.
At 60°C gently pour the wax into jars/containers.
Allow the wax to set at room temperature and let it cure for 1-2 days into a crystallized look.
