Soy Candles

What you need

Newspaper, 6 small votive candle glasses, 500g white soy wax, double saucepan, essential oil of choice, ladle, 6 tabbed wicks, 1 skewer, 6 pegs, scissors.

How to...

Prepare your work area close to the stove.  Pay down newspaper and arrange glasses on top.
Melt wax in the top of a double saucepan over simmering water, add essential oil and stir.
Use ladle to carefully pour wax into the glasses.  Place wicks in each glass, positioning with the skewer. Hold wicks in place by securing at the top with a peg.
Leave to set overnight.  The next day, if the wax has dipped in the centre of the candles, melt more wax and top up.  Once set, use scissors to trim wicks to 1/2cm in length.
