A while ago I made two soy wax candles scented with an amazing orchid fragrance! (I'll publish a post about that in the near future)
I wanted to try two different combinations of wood wicks: for one candle I've used a single wood wick and for the sister one I've used a double wood wick.
I gave away the one with the double wick and the person who got it told me that it burnt very well. On the other hand, the one with a single wick (that I kept for me) struggles to stay lit (the 'double-the wood wick-if you use soy wax' rule is apparently always valid!)...
For this reason I decided to recycle it and to make two new beautiful candles out of it!
I melted the original candle and passed the melted wax through a tea filter (to get rid of the wick, wick holder and impurities) before pouring it into new glass containers! Since I like to make experiments, I decided to use a double wood wick with half of the original width and added some wax crayons curls (I grated them) on top.
