Not ready to give up my soft cheeses that come in the red wax just yet. So, I melted the wax down and made candles out of them.
We consume the cheese and then melt the wax down for pretty little red Christmas candles. I reuse and remelt my candle wax and haven’t had to buy candles in years. If you add a pinch of your favorite essential oil, especially peppermint, it gives off a calming holiday season scent.
To melt candle wax, we use one particular old pan purchased at the Good Will. It is only used for wax as it’s oily and gross and I wouldn’t want to cook peas in it afterward, though I suppose I could and probably would.
Have you ever made your own candles?
