After gathering the materials needed to make candles at home, let's see how this candle is made. For this very easy process, just follow these steps:

-Put the beeswax into a deep bowl and melt it using the bain-marie method.

If you want to have a colored candle and have provided your candle dyes during the preparation phase, add the candle dyes in the colors you want into the melted wax and melt them in a bain-marie method, stirring occasionally.

-After this process, add approximately 1 tablespoon of any aromatic oil you prefer to make the candle smell pleasant. (It is up to you to choose the scents you want from many aromatic oils such as lavender, jasmine, cinnamon, you can choose whichever scent you want by candlelight )

Finally, mix this mixture well again and ensure that it reaches a homogeneous consistency.

Place the cotton thread in the glass jar where you will display your candle, in the middle of the mixture. Fixing the rope in an empty jar may be a little more difficult than you think, so wrap the upper end around a long stick and secure it to the mouth of the jar. (The idea of ​​using a skewer or ice cream stick will come in handy)

-After making sure that you have fixed the rope in the right place, start slowly transferring this homogeneous mixture you have prepared into the glass jar. The trick here is to transfer the mixture very slowly without acting too fast. Pay attention to whether the top looks flat and let your candle cool.

After your candle has cooled and reached the required consistency, turn the cotton string that you previously wrapped around a stick into the size of a candle wick and use your candle by lighting it whenever you want. Thank you. That's all!
