A few months ago, I saw an activity on the internet. A blogger transformed some tea-light candles into a thing of beauty. They were stunning! Well, I tried to do the same…They didn’t turn out quite as beautiful as hers, but what fun doing them!
A while ago, I was gifted with a mini oven… So convenient and it saves on electricity… Bonus! I chose to do my zooshed up candles in this oven so that I could keep my eye on them.
I tried to colour mine naturally with the following ingredients: charcoal, turmeric, paprika, hibiscus flower.And then popped them in the oven at a medium heat. I didn’t want the wax too hot, just melted. If it gets too hot the wick can’t stand up and it makes the decorating messy.
Christmas Tree to a third (Pine, Cedar-wood and Juniper berry)… and
Finally I added the decorations. These were left over from my teaching days, but this is where you can bring your special bling to the table. Little gems (Amethyst, rose quartz…), pieces of Frankincense and myrrh resin, pieces of orange zest, cinnamon bark, cloves… whatever you want.
Have fun and let us know how yours turned out. Post your pics on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/essherbprod), or our Instagram (essentialherbalproducts). We would love to see them.
Lots of love and health
