Like many of you, I love candles. I would spend so much money on candles but get very frustrated that they did not completely burn. There was always that small amount left at the bottom, (you all know what I'm talking about). I mean really.... I'm paying for a full candle but that's not what I was getting. So I started saving those jars with that small amount of wax in them. Thinking one day I'm gonna melt all this wax and make one big candle. Mind you, I had never attempted to do anything like this before. I had no idea what I was doing. I think the only thing I did know is that I had to have a wick. That's it. I had no knowledge of how to even melt the wax, so I just put a pot on the stove with a little bit of water, set the almost empty jars in the pot....and began to melt the wax.
After the wax melted, (oh, and I forgot to mention I did not add any scent to it ) I just poured it into my container that I had put the wick in. No flash point, no temperature, no anything, I just knew the basic. once it cooled, I was so excited that I had actually made a candle. Never mind that it had a deep sink hole in it. Never mind that there was barely any smell and that it looked horrible because of all the different colors I had mixed together. I had made my first candle and I was so proud of it I decided, hey, I can do this. After I learned a few things. watched videos, read and put plain old practice. I was on my way. And so begins my journey to candle making. Today is a much different story. I'm now able to produce not only beautiful candles, but ones that have an amazing scent that I know you will love.
Until later, stay blessed.
