Random project: Soy candles

Don’t ask me why…but yesterday I had a sudden urge to make candles…I know it’s kinda random but it just sounded intriguing to me.

I adore candles and I spend a bloody fortune on them…so I thought why not? I make my skin care products why not make some candles while I’m at it. In all my free time. ha!

So last evening, off I went to the craft store, grumbling husband and whining three-year old in tow, where I found a cheesy soy wax candle kit. I got it anyway, deciding against the gaudy pink dye and synthetic vanilla fragrance.

I wanted to use pure essential oils and no silly colors.

The result…a simple white candle in a frosted glass with the heavenly aroma of lavender and vanilla.

Not too shabby…for my first go. Fun too.
