Home Made Autumn Spice Soy Candle
I've never made a spice candle before and never used crayon to colour the candle.I thought I would try this and give it a go.This would be perfect as a gift.
What you'll need.
1)2cups soy wax
4)A Pyrex jug to put in a double boiler saucepan.
7)1/2 of light brown crayon.
8)1/2 tsp nutmeg
9)1/2 tsp cinnamon
Directions for how to make.
1)Place wick in glass container.
2)To hold wick in place wrap the top around a pencil
3)Melt soy wax on low heat until it reaches 80 degrees Celsius.Continue to stir soy candle flakes as they slowly melt.
4)Use 1/2 of brown crayon and drop into soy wax and stir well until completely dissolved.Add nutmeg and cinnamon and continue to stir.
5)The colour of the wax may darken but that's fine.
6)Remove mixture from the stove .Let wax cool down to 60-62 degrees celsius and slowly pour into glass container.
7)Store your homemade candle in a room that is cool to allow it to harden.After 1hour it will look firmer.
8)It may take 4 hours until it's completely set.
9)Snip the wick to shorten it.
10)Light and enjoy.
Safety tip.Never leave a lit candle unattended.
