Either that or I’m just getting better at this. I didn’t add any additives, the candles burn well and they’re the strongest smelling candles I have made.
This is “feather” palm wax which means it makes a feathered pattern when it hardens. It’s beautiful and sparkly and i love the effect. If you’re looking for a smooth shiny one tone color you might not like the feathered mottled look.
The votives and the smaller pillar were all made with one pound of palm wax, 2 tablespoons (or 30 ml) of lavender essential oil, half a blue dye chip and half a red.
I also made a large pillar (3 x 6 inch) with fresh cut flowers scented oil. This is not an essential oil but it truly smells like fresh cut flowers. I’m glad I made a big one because I don’t want to raid my garden anymore.
