As the holidays begin to roll around, it’s time to start thinking of gift giving! I’ve come to realize that candles are the universal gift to give. Whether a life long friend, or a new acquaintance., everyone loves and appreciates a wonderful scented candle. This candle recipe is not only festive for the holidays with it’s peppermint and chocolate aromas, but it is a healthy recipe as well!
You Will Need...
- 8 oz candle holder
- cooking pot
- wooden skewer
- 2 cups soy wax shavings
- candle wick
- 30 drops peppermint essential oil
- 30 drops vanilla essential oil
- 2 tsp organic cocoa powder
Step by Step Instructions
Begin by heating a pot of water on the stove top on medium/low. It’s crucial the water doesn’t begin to boil, and lead to water leaking into your candle holder.
Once the wax has melted, add in the essential oils and coco powder. With a small wooden skewer (or something you can throw away once finished stirring) stir all the ingredients into the wax. Let the aromas of the oil and coco set for five minutes.
After a few hours the wax will have hardened completely. Remove the tape and trim the wick 1/2 inch from the wax.
