Making scented candles for a loved one
Insert the wick via a hole on the spongy wick holder. Allow the wick to pass through the washer and on top of the sponge by one and a half inches. Ensure you fasten a knot at the base of the washer.
Point the wick's opposite end through an opening at the lowest part of the candle holder. Ensure the wick passes through the central part of the wick bar. Tightly pull the wick and place it at the wick bar end. Enwrap the end of the wick severally to keep it from moving.
Add some water to the lowest part of a double broiler and boil it. Put candle dyes and wax on top of the broiler. Additionally, add some scented oil.
Pour the melted wax from the broiler into the mould until it gets to the top. Start cutting the wick from underneath its holder.
Cut off the knot from beneath the mould. Draw the mould off the scented candle.
You can add colour to the candles by using old crayons or food colouring. Consider adding some fragrance oil together with the colouring depending on your loved one's preference. Use cotton kitchen twine instead of expensive commercial wicks. Dip the string in wax that has been melted. Make sure you cut the wax into small pieces before putting in the pan in order to melt faster. In case you lack a double boiler, take an empty coffee can to help in holding the wax. To give a lacy resemblance, fill up the mould with chunks of ice cubes before flowing in the wax.
