Cedar and Amber Candle Project

  • Skill Level: Beginner
  • Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 4 candles

These are the perfect project for fall and beyond. They fill the room with a spicy and woodsy scent. They make great gifts and stocking stuffers, and the project works for beginners and more advanced crafters. 

You will need:

  • Four 4 oz. Lidded Glass Jars
  • 4 Narrow Wooden Wicks
  • 17 oz. Golden Wax 464
  • 1.3 oz. Cedar and Amber Fragrance Oil

Follow these steps:

1

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.

2

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. 

3

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.

4

Once the wax is at 150° F, pour it slowly into the prepped jars. Secure the wicks with a clothespin (or other tool). 

5

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.
