Have you heard about our 2009 Christmas Kits? They’re this years simple solution for making coordinated gift ensembles! Choose from two different fragrance combinations (sweet or spice) to make candles, lotions and salt scrubs for your friends, family and co-workers. If you missed the blog yesterday, I posted a salt scrub recipe that you can make with this kit! Check it out.
Variation: If you want your candles to be a color other than ivory white, check out all of the candle colorants here. Get one of those colors plus the kit and you’ve got yourself a variation. Or, pick up an ounce of a great blender to give yourself even more options for the perfect stocking stuffer. What blends with Clementine Cupcake or Chipotle Caramel? Dark Rich Chocolate, Turkish Mocha, Arabian Spice, Blackberry Spice, Christmas Spice, Orange Spice, Orange Mocha or Pumpkin Spice are all great blenders! And Mandarin Myrrh & Wassail can both easily blend with Berry Wine, Chocolate Espresso, Dark Rich Chocolate, Rise ‘n’ Shine, Amber, Black Tea or Black Amber & Lavender.
Tip: If you’re having problems with leaning wicks, dip the base of the wick in the melted wax and center on the bottom of the tin. Then place 2 pencils horizontally on the tin, on each side of the wick. This will give the wick a little support as you pour the wax and the candle cools.
