I read an article recently discussing how candles and wind chimes go hand-in-hand. I was a bit puzzled because I have never heard this before. I looked into the history of this statement and discovered that many people use both candles and wind chimes as part of Cajun séances. WOW!
Regardless of the reason(s) you may want to set up a candle near your Eco Wind Chimes, I figured I would share an easy-to-follow candle making recipe.
A heat source like a hot plate or electric stove
A “double boiler” set up – a large, low pot for boiling water, with an old coffee can set inside it to melt the wax, will do just fine – or a more formal candle wax melting pot
Some wax appropriate for the type of candle you want to make
A wick appropriate for that wax
A mold or container to hold the melted wax
Fragrance or color for the candle, if desired
A match to light it when it’s done
You can choose from various types of candles, and you’ll need to choose the appropriate wax and wick for your project. You can personalize your candle even further by choosing a fragrance or essential oil to scent your candle. There are tons of candle-friendly supply websites online to pick out your supplies.
Once you obtain your safe candle making supplies, simply melt the wax, mix in a bit of oil, pour the hot way into the mold, Inset the wick, and then let everything setup for a few hours. That’s it.
Until next time,
