CaNdLe MaKiNg {Creating::Cooking::Curing}

A few days I posted about a couple new soy wax candle scents I was going to be making: Lemon Chiffon & Monkey Farts.  It turns out that Lemon Chiffon turned into Lemon Crème
Pie...I have a hard time just sticking with the premade fragrance oil scents that I buy, and I like to combine compatible fragrances to make my own unique scents, so that's what I did.  And voila, Lemon Crème Pie was created!  You won't find it anywhere else because it's my own Grace Note Gifts special, just like many of my other fragrances!

I thought I'd only have time to make 2 batches of candles (my boys' naps only last so long), but after creating Lemon Crème Pie & the Monkey Farts (deliciously fruity & banana scented) Soy Tarts I kept on going.  I had time to make some fresh and summery Coconut Soy Tarts & also came up with another unique fragrance...Cozy Cabin.  This is one scent I am really happy with, it's my own replication of a candle fragrance I have purchased in the past.  It went by another name of course, and my version is ever so slightly different except for the fact that mine is made with 100% Soy Wax as opposed to the candles I used to buy. 

 Cozy Cabin is a blend of pomegranate, berries & peppermint.  And the fragrance is so cozy and inviting.  I love it!  In fact, when we moved into our current home last year I had the idea to create a scent memory of our moving in.  So, I purchased the candle that inspired me to make Cozy Cabin and had it shipped to our new address.  When we first arrived to unpack our items the box had already been delivered, and as soon as we walked in the door I opened the box and lit my candle.  So now when I smell this scent it reminds me of the happy day we moved into our beautiful home.  

Here are some pics of my candle making process...creating my own unique fragrances, cooking it all up via my wax warmer and the lovely golden wax curing on my countertops!  It's such a fun process!

And here is the finished product!

As usual you can find the rest of my shop items by visiting me at Grace Note Gifts on Etsy!  Y'all have a blessed day!

Blessings, Grace
