World Recycling Day, Thursday March 18, is an opportunity to review good habits in terms of sorting and recycling. While it is important to ensure intelligent waste sorting, to help reduce it, reusing objects is also a good way to enable effective recycling.
Especially when this reuse is synonymous with creativity!
If you are fond of our jams, honeys, spreads or terrines, whose container is made of glass, then know that these can be transformed into beautiful scented candles that are entirely natural.
Scented craft candle
- 200g soy wax
- A wooden wick with a base of 13 cm
- 15 drops of essential oil with a melting point above 65°C (The flash point corresponds to the lowest temperature at which the essential oil (or the liquid in general) will be able to ignite. Ex: bergamot , cinnamon, cypress, rosewood, fine lavender, aspic lavender, mandarin, peppermint, myrtle, oregano, patchouli, Scots pine…)
- 1 Maison Brémond 1830 glass jar
1. In a double boiler, over medium heat, melt the vegetable wax. Once it has liquefied, remove from the heat.
2. Gently dip the wooden wick into the wax. Remove the wick from the wax, attach it to its metal base then gently dip the base in the wax as well, position the wick in the bottom of the jar and leave to set in the freezer for 1 minute.
3. Add the desired essential oils to the melted wax (you can mix the scents or choose just one).
4. Very carefully pour the wax into the jar, making sure that the wick does not move. Maintain the latter with the help of 2 knives on either side if necessary.
5. Wait 3 hours for the wax to set in the open air.
