Recipe in 8 steps:
1- Using the hot glue gun, place a little glue under a wick.
2- Glue this wick to the bottom of the glass jar, right in the center. Repeat for the 5 wicks.
3- Pour the soy wax into a large measuring cup and place in a pot of water. Melt the wax in this bain-marie over low heat.
4- Meanwhile, make your supports.
Cut out 5 squares slightly larger than the opening of the glass jars.
Cut out one side of each square to the center with a small hole in the center.
5- Once the wax is melted, add:
7.5 ml lavender oil,
5 ml of lemon-scented eucalyptus oil
2.5 ml of peppermint oil
2.5 ml of clove oil and mix well.
6- Pour the melted wax mixture into the glass jars, taking care not to pour on the wicks.
7- Insert the cardboard supports around the wicks to keep them straight.
8- Let cool for 3 hours or until the wax solidifies. And that’s it!
Mosquito repellent candles are made with repellent essential oils to keep mosquitoes and black flies away.
