If you are feeling creative, then you can also add a coloring agent to make your homemade candles more colorful and lively. Never use food coloring, though, as it will not dissolve in the wax – you can easily find special wax coloring at your local art store, where you can also buy the white wax blocks along with the preferred scents.
The next step is to get a container for the candle and to pour the hot wax into it, so that it will take the shape of the container. Don’t forget to insert the fuse right in the middle of the wax block, otherwise your homemade scented candle will be ruined!
