Caffeccino candles!

I'm Italian and coffee is really an important issue for me! ahahahah!

I love dark and short coffee and the Italian way of drinking it in a bar: you get in, you ask for a coffee at the bar (no need to specify 'ristretto' or 'short' or whatever!!!), you shot it in one sip when it's still steaming, you pay and then you walk out...happier, with more energy and an incredible taste in your mouth! 
I'm living in France since almost 5 years and I have to admit that I really miss a lot the Italian style coffee and one day, while thinking about the incredible smell of coffee powder, I came up with this idea: The Caffeccino candles with real coffee powder on top! Obviously I've also added an incredible coffee fragrance I bought from Mondo Bougies, and since it was meant to be a cappuccino, I whipped soy wax to create the foamy effect!

There you go, now I'm craving for a coffee!

Recipe (slow moving trace):
Olive oil (pomace) 70% Coconut oil 22.25% Palm oil (organic) 7.75%
Note that the palm oil I buy from The Soap Kitchen 'carries Organic Certification and comes from Columbia. It is not produced on land that has been taken from the Rain Forests, nor are there any Orangutangs made homeless. Our suppliers do use 'ethical' methods in their production (we have actually visited the site). Our Columbian suppliers are members of the RSPO (Round Table for Sustainable Production ofPalmOil).'
