Embedded Herbs Candle Recipe

• Light-colored taper candle
• Candle mold (1 to 2 inches wider than base candle above)
• Whole spices, dried herbs or flowers
• Essential oil, optional
• Translucent or light-colored wax
• Melting pot, such as a double boiler

1. Lightly coat the inside of the mold with vegetable oil. Set taper candle upside down in the center of the mold.

2. Trim the bottom of the candle so it’s lower than the top of the mold. Tuck the wick through the wick hole in the bottom of the mold and plug with mold sealer.

3. Put enough whole spices, dried herbs or flowers around the taper to fill about half of the open space in the mold.

4. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for melting wax. If you want to add scent to the wax, do so just before pouring it.
