Candle making day!

I've been having a lot of fun teaching myself how to make candles.
The process was pretty simple. Essentially, I just boiled  the wax down (I had to break the wax into small pieces and put it in jars, and then put the jars in a pot surrounded by boiling water, protected by a dishcloth in between the jar and the bottom of the pot) and then put a wick in the candle after the wax had cooled a bit. I dropped a few drops of Vanilla to give it scent, but I think I could have put more in.
Over all, it was pretty easy (Although super messy!) and I can't wait to make more.
