Sure you can glue a wick in a jar and pour wax easy enough but what you choose matters. Here's some things to consider if you want to make candles.
Be sure to use containers safe for candles. The size of the opening of your jar will determine the size of wick you need. We push the bar when it comes to adding fragrance. We add as much as the wax will absorb and that takes practice and it depends on your wax choice how much of a load the wax can hold. We love to hear how one of our candles filled the whole room with fragrance so adding as much as possible is important to us.
To get started try different wicks and waxes and see what you like best. We mark the bottom of each candle with numbers that tells us information needed when we test burn. We keep a log sheet at each candle. Here's some things we look for - how long did it burn? did it burn hot enough? was the scent throw good? did it burn too hot?
This is just a few things to consider when making candles. Have fun exploring the art of candle making!
