· · Candle wax

Prepare your moulds and centre your candle wick into the moulds. Melt the candle wax in the double boiler or tin can in a pan of water, on your stove top
*****Floating candles in a clear bowl creates an extra special lighting effect. Using distilled water eliminates mineral build up on the side of crystal or glass, preserving its unique presentation of floating candles.
Prepare your candle container. Centre your candle wick (I prefer medium lead free wire candle wicking) into your glass container. Let a drop or two of your favourite scent roll down the wick from top to bottom.
*****A candle will burn more slowly and evenly if it's refrigerated before using it. Wrap the candle in plastic or foil before refrigerating to prevent wicks from absorbing moisture.
Gel Candles Recipe
Mix Resin and Mineral Oil together. Let the mixed ingredients be set at room temperature for approximately 1 hour.
****Keep lit candles out of drafts as drafts create large flames and thereby shortening the burning time.
