To make homemade candles it is very important to have patience, so if it does not work at first, give yourself a second chance.

  • We start by placing our wax (previously cut into several parts) inside the pot to melt it. Also, you can add it whole, but it will take more time.
  • Once the above is done, add the lemon essence and mix until everything is integrated.
  • Later, add the dye of your liking to color your candle. Remember that a few drops will suffice. If you don’t have the food coloring, don’t worry, skip this step.
  • Now we proceed to decorate the container where we will place the candle. To do this, we will use the slices and pieces of lemon that we have previously cut.
  • Finished the above, add the wax (still liquid and hot) in the container and let it cool.
  • When the wax reaches a slightly thicker consistency, but is still not hard, place the waxed wick right in the center.
  • To finish, let the mixture cool completely. In this way, you will achieve the desired solidity.
