Candle Making with lemons

There is something so comforting about burning a beautiful, calmly scented candle in the home.   It’s even more enjoyable when you have made the candle yourself with your favourite fragrance.

We have the candle making essentials that you will need here and the steps for candle making are very simple!  You just need a container/tin/jar to hold your candle, wax, wick and any colours, fragrances or extras you would like to put in your candle.

The first step is to put your wick into your container and hold it in place with wooden sticks or icypole sticks and pegs, as pictured.   Keep the wick quite long for now as you will trim it down at the end.

The next step is to melt the wax in a pot on the stove according to the directions on the wax you have chosen.  When the wax has melted you can add in any colours, fragrances or extras.

Next, pour the melted wax into your chosen candle container and obviously, be careful as it is very hot.

Finally, let the wax totally cool down and trim the wick.  So easy! 

You can create some truly crafty candles if you let your imagination go.  If you’ve made a great crafty candle, share a picture with us as we love to see our products brought to life.

Happy Crafting,
