Here’s another easy fall candle recipe to add to your collection! Apples and cinnamon are the perfect combination for a seasonal home fragrance, don’t you think? Just by lighting a candle your entire house smells like you’ve been baking pie all day (without the work and without the calories!). I love pie. And I love candles. So of course, this recipe is a favorite of mine.
I’m pretty sure you’ll love it too!
Start by filling the jar to the top with wax flakes. You can heat this slowly by setting your oven on a low temp and placing the jar on a center rack, or by placing the jar in the microwave and heating it in short intervals. As the wax melts you’ll need to add more flakes and melt, repeating this process until the jar is full of melted wax.
Carefully remove the jar of melted wax from the heat source using oven mitts (safety first!) and place on a heat resistant surface. Add the fragrance oil to the melted wax using a pipette. Typically for this size candle, I’ll add about 8-10 pipettes of fragrance oil (depending on the potency of the fragrance oil I?m using).
Position the wick in the center of the candle (with the metal disc touching the bottom of the jar) and fold over the wooden skewer to support the placement while the wax hardens. You can tape the wick to the skewer if it seems to be moving too much, but if you use a pre-waxed candle wick it should fold over the skewer and stay put due to the waxy texture. Allow the candle to cool and harden completely prior to use.
Cut the wick just above the wax, light and enjoy!
