Homemade Vanilla Sugar Candle Instructions:

• Place your candlewick in a glass jelly or mason jar allowing the wick to drop to the bottom.
• To hold the candlewick in place, wrap the top around a pencil or chopstick.
• Place the stick over the jar and let the bottom of it drop to the bottom. A weighted candlewick does this nicely and settles on its own.

• Add 2 cups of soy wax to your large glass measuring cup (do not use a plastic measuring cup) and heat in the microwave for 2-3 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds. or Using a double boiler on the stove to heat the soy wax flakes until they liquefy. (If using a non-stick pan to heat the soy flakes, use a very low heat and stir frequently – do not allow to scorch.)
• Add vanilla scent to the liquid soy wax (you can use more than is listed here, and if you prefer a scent other than vanilla, use that!).
• If you want to color your candle, DO NOT use food coloring as it will not mix well. This candle is naturally white, but if you wish to add color use pieces of broken crayon to do so. Peel the crayon and break it into small pieces (just ¼ of a crayon will work for a light color, more is necessary to achieve the darker colors). Allow the wax to melt and tint the mixture.

• Slowly pour your liquid soy candle wax into the glass jelly or mason jar
• Immediately re-center the candlewick if needed.
• Store the candle in a cool place until it sets. Allow it to harden at its own pace.
• After approximately 30 minutes – when the candle has begun to solidify – sprinkle the top of the candle with decorator sugar.
• Once the mixture has hardened, remove the pencil and you can snip the candlewick to shorten it.

• Rub around toes and in arch for sore feet as well.
• Use as needed.

Note: None of this is meant as medical advice. I am not a doctor and do not play one on the internet. Please consult a physician if you have any questions about using essential oils so your doctor can better explain to you the benefits, possible side effects, and any warnings about essential oils.
