The candles are done. I make mostly votives, the molds I have will make only 6 each....my hot plate is on it's last leg and is slooooow to heat up so getting them all done took longer than usual. I had a large bag full of candle bits left over from other candles so it turned into a major project.
The house certainly smells good now, all those scents permiating everything and I haven't even started burning them yet.
Well, not burning the candles that is. Almost set a pot of wax on fire yesterday. Multi-tasking is not the thing to do when one of those tasks is melting wax. Remembered and got back into the kitchen in time to see lots of thick white smoke rolling up out of the pot. No flames but boy did it smell. We have a large exhaust fan in the backroom so I stood out there with it for awhile to cool it down.
Red is cinnamon
Orange is Patchouli
Blue is Rain
Purple is Frankincense and Myrrh
Black is also Frankincense and Mryyh
Lavender is....chocolate by special request from my youngest daughter

Boy I bet they smell good Toni :) Where did you learn the art of candle-making if I may ask?
I used to spend some time at a small herb shop near here and watched Beth make candles that she sold there. Bought my supplies from her and any questions I had I would go see her. She had to close her shop last summer but she gave me her suppliers catalog.
I love candles. It makes your home so cozy and they smell soooo good. I'll bet goats milk soap is very good for your skin!!
I am a candle maker too I make container candles.Our neighborhood gets the scent from my Candle house when I'm making them.I had a business at one time.I don't do many now as I was working a 40 hour job and making candles 40 to 50 hrs a week.
