Hi, my name is Carole. I’ve been making wax candles since 2011 when I first made a scented candle. At the time, I was living in an apartment and didn’t have enough space to make as many candles as I wanted.
The apartment was set up with an old stove and oven, which made it the perfect spot to make candles since I could control the temperature of both. It’s really not that hard to get started – you just need some wax and scents. All you have to do is take a small bit of wax at a time and add a little bit of scent from one of our fragrance oils.
If you want your candle to be stronger smelling, all you have to do is add more! I suggest starting off with 8 drops per ounce if this is your first batch. That way if they turn out too strong or not strong enough, there’s always next time to try more or less.
I did a lot of research and waded through tons of information before I started making candles, which is why I’m writing this guide for fellow candle makers! There are some great resources out there like www.candlescience.com, candles.org, but they can be overwhelming if you’re just getting started
My favorite candle is Lemon Verbena because it smells exactly like it sounds: zesty with just a hint of sweet floral notes. It’s perfect for summertime picnics or anytime you need sunshine indoors or out.”
