Aromatic notes of French lavender and creamy vanilla combine to indulgent effect in this coconut wax candle, housed in a beautifully embossed glass jar.
French Lavender fills a space with the rejuvenating fragrance of lavender from Provence, blended with vanilla. Set inside a glass holder, this essential oil candle provides beautiful illumination for centerpieces and other focal points. Ideal for displaying on a mantel or sideboard, the candle also makes a great hostess gift.
Instructions: Fill a 2 cup glass measuring cup with approximately 1 1/2-2 cups of the soy wax flakes. Microwave on high for 1 minute. Using a wooden craft stick, stir. After the first minute, continue to microwave (on high) in 30 second increments, stirring in between, until all the wax has melted.
While the wax is melting, prepare glass jars. Set wick in the bottom of each container. Use a bit of glue stick to get them to stick to the bottom of the container. Ideas for jars: re-use old jelly or Balls jars, tins or tea cups.
Once the wax is melted, stir in the lavender and vanilla essential oils. We used a mixture of 75 drops of the essential oil (50 drops of lavender, and 25 of the vanilla). Feel free to adjust the ratio to your preference. Stir in lavender buds.
Next, carefully pour the mixture into a glass jar, filling them about 7/8 full.
Once the wax has completely hardened, they are ready! To use, simply light and enjoy.
