I have a recipe for you today, but it’s not for food. You don’t mind too much do you? You see ever since my Mom & I made soy candles as favors for my wedding, and after the wedding was featured here, I got several requests to share our recipe/process. Our guests absolutely loved them and we’ve made more candles since with lots of success. They make such a wonderful gift with a special, personalized touch- and the options for scents and colors are endless! Would you believe that making them is really pretty simple once you get the hang of it?
We chose to use soy wax, and have made them in a variety of scents. These were Hazelnut Coffee (amazing,) and we did Cinnamon Vanilla for the wedding. All of our supplies came from Candle Science, including the jars, wicks, wax, and scents. When ordering, you can choose the right wick size for your jar which is helpful- and there are customer service reps who can help you figure out the right quantity of supplies to order for what you need. (I’m not paid to promote them I swear!) We experimented a ton before the wedding to create a candle that smells great before and while it’s burning.
