Call Me a Candlestick Maker

I have made candles! This has been something I have had the supplies to make them for over a year!

These are lemon lavender… for relaxing

I am a firm believer in the power of essential oils and I wanted to help my kids with their meditating so I made them these!

I put these dry herbs and oils in the candles

I heated up the wax on a double boiler. I was surprised how much wax I needed for even a small candle, so if you are planning on making candles keep that in mind.

They looked pretty cool even before they cooled down and they smell so good.

First time being lit!

Ingredients are soy wax, essential oils, dried lavender and lemon slices. The jar was actually from the dollar store and it had the wick already included so it made the job very easy.
