Melted Candle TartsDo you know how many of these things I have thrown away over the past few years?
Way too many!
I've never messed with candlemaking before but I thought I might as well try since I've got all this melted wax. It just needs re-scented and it would be good as new.
After talking to Carmen about the flashpoint of wax (the only thing that really concerned me) I decided to give it a try.
I melted small amounts of wax in my double boiler, which consisted of an old stock pot and a coffee can. I placed my candy thermometer on the side of my coffee can so I could carefully watch the temperature.
Once the wax was melted I added the scent and then poured the wax into these silicone ice cube trays that I found marked down at our local grocery store.
They worked perfect!
I'm not so sure that I care for the scent that I used in these ones and the color isn't that great.
There are tons of oils, scents & dyes out there to use so I'll just have to experiment until I find the *one* for me.
But now that I know that I CAN do this I will be able to save tons of money.
I'll just remelt, rescent and reuse.
Now I just gotta find the right smell!
Anyone care to share their favorite candle scent
or even their favorite place to buy candle making supplies?
