Wax Candles: 10 Delightful Projects to Make
Long ago, candles were a necessity of life, providing precious light after dark. Today, scented candles are often used to create a warm and relaxing atmosphere, and to flood a home with delightful fragrances to create different moods. Coloured candles are used in interior design as focal points and to pick up accent colours in a room. Candlemaking is a fun and fascinating hobby, and you can even sell your wares or give them as presents to friends and family. All candles are made of solid wax with an embedded wick to hold the flame. They’re made from paraffin, tallow (animal fat), beeswax, soya, palm or other vegetable waxes. With the aid of the detailed step-by-step information and 10 inspiring candle recipes contained in this book, you’ll soon get started in this fascinating and fun craft.
Elaine Stavert formed The Littlecote Soap Co. after a life-changing move from her television career in London to a farm in the beautiful Buckinghamshire countryside in England. With a keen interest in herbalism and aromatherapy, Stavert was soon developing a range of natural toiletries and bath products that were both kind to the skin and quintessentially English. Her passion for her products is evident in the pure and natural ingredients that are used in imaginative ways to produce traditional recipes with contemporary twists.
