Cedar and Amber Candle Project
These fill the room with a woodsy scent that's perfect for fall.
Four 4 oz. Lidded Glass Jars
4 Narrow Wooden Wicks
17 oz. Golden Wax 464
1.3 oz. Cedar and Amber Fragrance Oil
Place a half-filled pot of water on the stove, bring it to a low simmer, and nest a pouring pitcher or other heat-safe container inside. Add 17 ounces of Golden Wax 464 and let it melt.
Weigh out 1.3 ounces of Cedar and Amber Fragrance Oil into a glass container. Once the wax reaches 185° F, remove it from the heat and slowly stir in the fragrance for 1-2 minutes to fully incorporate. Set aside until it cools to 150° F.
Place the wooden wick into its metal holder. Trim the wick to the correct size - make sure it's not in the way of the lids. Secure the wick to the bottom of each container using a wick sticker.
Once the wax is at 150° F, pour it slowly into the prepped jars. Secure the wicks with a clothespin (or other tool).
Let the candles cool for 12-24 hours. Allow them to cure for 3-5 days so the fragrance completely bonds with the wax. Burn your candle until it reaches a full melt pool for best results.
