Remove lid from your mason jar.
Place the wicks inside your candle jars with the wick tabs provided.
Use the wood sticks provided to prop up the wicks.
Microwave option - Microwave the mason jar for approximately 2 to 3 minutes, depending the wattage of your microwave, until the wax has just fully liquefied. Use oven mitts to carefully remove the mason jar from the microwave.
Double boiler option - Place your mason jar into a small pot with 2” of water. Bring the water to boil. Stir continuously until the wax has just fully liquefied. Use oven mitts to carefully remove the mason jar from the pot.
Let the melted wax cool undisturbed for 5 minutes.
Using the wood whisk, gently stir the fragrance oil into the melted wax for 3 minutes.
Carefully pour the wax + fragrance concoction into the jars you prepared.
Put candle labels on.
Set your candles on a flat surface for at least 24 hours. For best results (i.e. maximal diffusion of fragrance), let your candles sit for a minimum of 3 days, up to 2 weeks before use. It will be worth the wait! Trim wicks to 1/4” above wax before each burn.
Optional: decorate with crystals by carefully remelt the top layer with a heat gun or a hair dryer, and placing crystals on top.
For easy clean-up, place the mason jar in your sink, and pour hot water (carefully!) into it. This helps break up the wax. Be sure to let it cool before washing with a soapy sponge.
