Melt 7 oz. of container-candle wax inside a double boiler filled with water. NEVER place the pot of wax directly on flame.
Remove pot from the boiler after wax has reached approximate temperature of 165 degrees and has completely melted. Pour the wax into a small metal or heat-safe glass pitcher that would allow for easy pouring later.
Now, it’s time to add color. Put less than one drop of desired liquid color dye on the tip of a wooden skewer and stir color thoroughly into the melted wax.
Next, add your desired fragrance oil. Pour between 1/3 oz. to ¾ oz. of fragrance oil into the colored and melted wax. In general, ½ to 1 ½ oz. of Abbey & Sullivan fragrance oil can nicely scent one pound of melted wax. If too much oil is used, the candle may sweat.
Attach one or two Zinc-Core wire or other suitable wicks to an empty 8 oz. Tureen or other glass jar. The number of wicks required depends on the diameter of the jar.
Carefully, pour the melted, colored and scented wax mixture from the pitcher into the 8 oz. glass jar while ensuring that the wick(s) remain straight.
For best results, allow the wax to cool for at least four to eight hours or longer at room temperature. Once the candle has cooled, use a heat gun on low power to fix any uneven spots on surface. Enjoy your hand-made candle experience.
* Note: Due to varying compositions of fragrances, waxes, soaps, and color dyes, we highly recommend that you test a small batch and make adjustments for compatibility, scent-throw, color and other desired results.
