I am all about candles at the moment! I did a Soy Candle Making Class with my beautiful girlfriend Belinda, and since then, have been melting up a storm! It is so easy, and so cheap. This surprised me – I always have candles burning at home, or scented melts, and I know that I have never bought the Soy Candles because they are just so expensive. But to make, they are so cheap! As a mum, the other bonus feature of Soy Candles is that they burn at a lower tempreture, and so it is very difficult for little ones to get burnt should they somehow acidently get in touch with the melted wax.
Miss 6 and I plan to make a whole lot of candles for gifts this year at Christmas. We haven been saving all our empty jars, cleaning the labels off and storing them, ready to decorate them when the time comes! I came across an amazing post on TEOTWAWKI Blog – a really simple, photo illustrated step by step guide to making your own ‘survival’ candles. A must read for anyone who has thought about doing this themselves. TEOTWAWKI Blog: DIY Survival Candles.
