I made these summery scented layered candles today while it was pouring rain. I had a bit of a mishap with some cherry and lemon scented wax so ended up blending them together. They’re the pink tinged layer. The other layer is pina colada with a little extra coconut scent thrown in for good measure.
This is feather palm wax which is perfect for votives or pillars. I used aluminum molds for all of them and they just slid out without any mold release.
The wax all melted once it hit 175 farenheit and I added the dye and scent once it hit 190 and poured. This palm wax can hold 5 to 6% scent without additives as opposed to 3% for other waxes.
I love working with palm wax because it’s so forgiving, looks beautiful and burns well. A curious neighbor dropped by to see what I was doing. I had fun showing her around and she left with a vanilla scented pillar.
