How to prepare a scented candle. The preparation
Get a saucepan and pour some water into it to melt the white wax in a water bath. Immediately afterwards pour a few drops of rose oil and add a coloring tablet of the color you prefer. Then melt all the wax, mixing it with the handle of a spoon. Place the wick inside the stencil holding it at the end while pouring the melted wax.
It is important to ensure that the wick always remains upright and wait for it to cool down for a few minutes. If a little hollow is forming around the wick during solidification, pour a few more drops of hot wax.
After the wax has solidified well, place the molds in the refrigerator. Before doing this operation, it is advisable to hermetically close each mold in food bags as the smell could disperse in the freezer.
After an hour, it will already be possible to remove the candle from each mold. Here are the candles ready for your romantic evening, and for a touch of refinement you can sprinkle a few pink petals around the candle.
