Christmas Candles

Homemade candles make for excellent gifts, which are quite easy to make. Just be careful not to exceed the recommended temperature for wax melting, which should be way less than 300° F. In fact, it's better not to let the temperature rise above 250° F.
That said, let us briefly explain the procedure. You will need to buy an appropriate quantity of wax (Paraffin, Soy or Beeswax), fragrance oils, wicks (long cotton strings) and color crayons. You will also need molds and pans for heating wax.
Melt the wax (caution: wax is inflammable, maintain temperature below 300° F), add a color crayon and fragrance oil. Prepare the mold by applying oil inside it and covering it with paper. Pour the molten wax into a mold and let it cool, after inserting the wick inside, using an external support. Within hours, your candle will be ready to be gift wrapped!
