Candle recipe

1 pound Joy Wax + 1/8 of a color block or less + 1 oz. to 1.5 oz. fragrance oil

Instructions: To make approximately 1 pound of candle

Note: Before you begin melting your Joy Wax, make sure you have your containers ready to be filled. Use a hot glue gun and stick your wicks to the bottom of all of your containers.

1. Place cake pan (with one-half inch of water) on the stove or hot plate on low heat. Place an empty pouring pot inside the cake pan to create a double boiler effect.

2. Place 1 pound of Joy Wax + 1/8 of a color block (or less if you desire a pastel colored candle) inside the pouring pot and melt the entire mixture to 200 degrees F. Use your thermometer to monitor the temperature. Thoroughly mix the wax mixture.

3. Once the mixture is 200 degrees F, remove from heat. Allow the wax temperature to cool to approximately 170 degrees F. Quickly add 1 oz. to 1.5 oz. fragrance oil, stir the mixture, and  pour the mixture into your containers.

4. Allow candle to cool at room temperature. Make sure your wicks are straight.

5. For best results, allow your candles to set for at least 3 days
