Light The Dark
He drew me in. A moth to a flame.
Lit candles are beautiful.
An old cooking pot, soy wax flakes, essential oil, wicks, and repurposed, heat safe containers to ‘house’ the poured wax. I used thrifted silver sugar bowls and white washed tin. Sometimes, I use china tea cups. Tin cans add a Farmhouse or Industrial feel. A Tip- ”BAR KEEPERS FRIEND,’ a liquid, multi purpose, cook top polish, cleans and shines tarnished silver.
Soy candles are simple to make. Use a wax thermometer to gauge the pour temperature. You can’t mess this DIY up!
Follow the instructions on the wax box/bag. If you notice an uneven surface (after the candle dries), use a hair dryer to warm the wax and even out the surface. To remove wax from a container, place the candle in the freezer for a short period of time. It will easily pop out.
Supervise children and never leave the candle unattended. Monitor the burn time.
