Here is a brief "How-to" make your own Summer Watermelon Scented Candles:
- Candle wax (464 Candle Wax)
- Candle wicks
- Candle dye (red)
- Fragrance oil (watermelon lemonade)
- Candle containers or molds
- Double boiler or a heat-resistant container and a pot
- Stirring utensil (wooden spoon or popsicle stick)
- Adhesive tabs or glue dots (to secure the wicks)
- Heat-resistant surface or tray
Prepare your workspace: Ensure you have a clean, well-ventilated area to work in. Cover your work surface with a heat-resistant material or tray to protect it from any spills.
Set up the wicks: Attach a candle wick to the bottom of each candle container using adhesive tabs or glue dots. Ensure the wicks are centered in the containers.
Melt the wax: Fill the bottom of a double boiler with water and place it on the stove over medium heat. Place the wax in the top part of the double boiler or use a heat-resistant container placed in a pot with water. Gently melt the wax, stirring occasionally, until it reaches a temperature of around 160-180°F (71-82°C). Use a thermometer to monitor the temperature.
Add fragrance and dye: Once the wax has melted, remove it from the heat. Add the watermelon lemonade fragrance oil according to the instructions for the desired scent strength. Stir gently to incorporate the fragrance. Next, divide the melted wax into two separate containers. Add red candle dye to one container and none to the other. Stir each container thoroughly to achieve an even color.
Pour the wax: Starting with the red wax, carefully pour a layer into the bottom of each candle container, leaving some space at the top. Allow the wax to cool and solidify slightly but remain warm and pliable.
Pour the second layer: Once the red layer has set, pour the white wax on top, melting again if necessary and filling the remainder of the container. Ensure the wick remains centered. Leave a small gap at the top to avoid overflowing when the candle burns.
Cool and trim: Allow the candles to cool and solidify completely. This process may take several hours. Once the candles are fully hardened, trim the wicks to a suitable length, around ¼ inch (0.6 cm).
Cure and enjoy: For best results, let the candles cure for a few days before lighting them. This allows the fragrance to fully develop. Once cured, place your summer watermelon scented candles in a safe location away from drafts, and enjoy the delightful aroma and ambiance they create.
Remember to follow proper safety precautions when working with hot wax and open flames. Enjoy the process of creating these beautiful summer-inspired candles and let your creativity shine!
