Other Ingredients & Equipment You'll Need:
Stirring Spoons
Stove
Scale
Small knife
Pot (for double boiler)
Apothecary Jar with lid
Cutting board
Sharp pencil
Toothpick
Wax Paper

Step 1:  Lay out 2 pieces of wax paper on a flat surface.

Step 2:  Now, weigh out and melt 25 grams of beeswax using the double boiler method.  Once the beeswax is melted, add 2 grams of fragrance oil and stir. 

Step 3:  Next, add 1 drop Yellow spectrum dye and stir again.  Once the color is evenly incorporated, pour this over the wax paper.  Allow the beeswax to fully harden.

Step 4:  Repeat step 2.  Once melted, add 2 drops of Red Spectrum Dye and stir. Once all of the beeswax is colored, pour the beeswax onto the second piece of wax paper.  Allow this to fully set up.

Step 5:  Once both beeswax colors are set up, gently peel the beeswax from the wax paper. 

Step 6:  Now, get your cutting board, pencil, and knife. 

Step 7: Using your pencil, lightly trace out a small curved flower that resembles a daisy in the yellow beeswax.  You will want this flower to be a little bit bigger than the size of a quarter.   Now, with the red beeswax, trace the outside outline of a pointed flower with 5 to 6 petals.  When you are ready, cut each item out.

Step 8:  Once your design is finished, place them into the jar.  Then, gently press the flowers along the wall until it sticks. 

Step 9:  Now, weigh out and melt 430 grams of Joy wax using the double boiler method.

Step 10: While your joy wax is melting, center and secure your wicks to the bottom of your candle jar.

Step 11:  Once your joy wax is melted, remove it from the heat source.  Now to the melted wax add 34 grams of fragrance and 1 toothpick tip of Red Spectrum Dye.  This will give your candle a pink color.  Stir well to incorporate.   Then, place your thermometer into the wax.

Step 12:  When your wax reaches 125 degrees Fahrenheit, give it a final stir.  Then, carefully pour it into your container; stopping the pour where the jar changes shape.

Step 13:  Straighten your wicks again, and allow the candle to fully set up undisturbed.

Step 14:  Once your candle is completely set up, trim your wicks. 

Your Mothers Day Candle is now ready to use.  Enjoy!
