Spring is a season of growth and new beginnings. Invite great things into your life with some rest and relaxation-in the form of a candle! This is our brand new Spring Floral Candle.
We love scents from our Zen Fragrance Oil Collection so we used our Pink Salt & Water Lily fragrance oil. You can use any scent you’d like!
– 3 cups Soy Wax
– 2 tbsp Pink Salt and Water Lily Fragrance Oil
– Jar of choice with lid
– Dried Rose Buds and Petals (if desired)
This recipe is so easy and turns out such a beautiful candle!
Melt wax incrementally in microwave safe bowl using either a microwave or the double boiler method. It took us 2 minutes and 30 seconds to melt the first two cups of wax then about 2 minutes to add in the third cup of wax and get it fully melted.
Take temperature of wax using temperature gun or thermometer.
Once wax is between 145-165 degrees, add fragrance oil and stir.
For a more beautiful candle, carefully heat the outside of your jar with a heating gun. Otherwise move to next step.
Then, add a wick to the bottom of your jar. We recommend, for this amount of wax, a jar of about 16 oz. and a wooden wick or a larger wick. Use wick sticker if desired.
Finally, pour wax into jar carefully and allow time for it to set.
To make candle top seamless, apply heating gun to top of the candle from about an inch or more away.
Then, carefully drop rose petals to top of candle while wax is still warm/non-solid. Trim wick if necessary.
That’s all there is to it!
