I’m funny about spending money. I have no qualms spending money on food or gifts but am super frugal about other things … and scented candles were one of those things. Well, that is until last year when we were all stuck at home 24/7. I became obsessed with having scented candles lit all the time, just to add a different “something, anything” to my space.
A nice soy candle can cost $30-50. One for the living room, bathroom and bedroom – burning most of the day…well, really started to add up. So, I was curious and decided to try to make my own. I saved all the previously used candle containers and bought a soy wax candle kit on Amazon and with instructions from Food52, I gave it a try. And it worked! I was surprised that it was pretty easy and forgiving. The hardest part is getting the wick to set straight. (I’m still working on that).
Making something new satisfied that creative and maker part of me too. I’m looking forward to playing around with different scents. I can’t wait to give them out as gifts – or maybe add to the ES line. Who knows? The possibilities are endless – and how exciting is that?!
