Orange Blossom Candle Tutorial + Candle Tips
I enjoy making candles. And what is so great about making candles is that they make excellent gifts for anytime of the year. Or if you have a special event, you can make your own instead of having to purchase awhole lot of them. Here is an unique layered candle project from The Soap Queen called Orange Blossom Candle. It is an intermediate level project that takes 3-4 hours and results in (2) 8 ounce candles.
I have a B.A. in Mass Communication and took my first melt and pour soapmaking class in 2002. Since then I got hooked making my own bath and products. I have taken various courses in Soapmaking (Melt & Pour, Cold Process, Hot Process), lotion making (lotions, creams, lotion sticks), bath products (bath salts, body scrubs), body products (lip balm, body butters, body balms, whipped butters) and more. Most of all of my classes were taught by Lori Nova of The Nova Studio in Point Richmond, Ca. I have taught courses since 2004 at various locations. I have worked as an Event Coordinator at Michaels Redwood City.
