I know that you might be a little shocked with why I’m posting about candles on a food day. Well, I made these candles in my slow cooker. I was so proud with how well it worked out and I wanted to share it with you to show you that you can do more with your slow cooker than just cook food.
These would make great gifts of any kind. I gave these to my mom & dad for Christmas. You could use them to go along with Visiting Teaching handouts. For house warming gifts. The list could go on.
Supplies You Need
2 lbs Wax
4 Mason Jars
Boil enough water to cover your mason jars about 3/4 of the way.
While the water is boiling, shred or cut the wax into smaller pieces.
Place the wax in the mason jars to the top and add them to the slow cooker.
Add the boiled water so the slow cooker gentle and slowly until jars are 3/4 covered.
Turn the slow cooker on to HIGH for 2 hours.
Check the slow cooker about an hour in to see if the wax is all melted.
If the wax is all melted, add more so it’s back to the top and let finish melting.
Check back in about 30 minutes and add more wax to the desired height.
Pull out the jars and let cool for about 10 minutes.
Add essential oils, more than 12 drops.
(I’m not sure how many to add so it’s an experiment still.)
Put the wicks in and secure in a standing position with string and tape, or clothes pins.
Let cool all the way till solid, a few hours.
