//Soy wax + essential oils = aromatic indulgence //

Today I learnt something new…. thanks to my lovely friend Jen!

Jen and I and another friend, Chris, had a fun afternoon making soy candles. Jen had sourced the wax and wicks for us and researched the process. We each supplied our own essential oils and glass jars. With Jen’s kitchen bench covered in newspaper to catch any drips, we were away…melting, stirring, pouring, supportingĀ  wicks, laughing, sipping champagne, munching home-baked macaroons, drinking coffee and chatting.

I came home with a lovely collection of candles of different sizes. Once the wax is really firm, I will trim all the wicks and they’ll be ready to use.

Wonderful suggestion, Jen! Had so much fun!
