    It took a good 30 minutes to make these 2 candles. They're hand dipped. I just did 2 to start off with, unscented.

    Those are really good! Are you thinking of making candles and selling them on your site?

    Quote:Yeah. I've had a lot of people say that they'd like to have candles with the same scents as some of my soaps.
     
  4. Do you use lead free wicks? Thats the only kind that I can use and unscented, would be nice to have around during the winter months when the power is not so reliable.

    because it can cause respiratory failures/death in my indoor birds I have had to go through candle withdrawal I keep scented party lites in a few drawers just so I can remember the smell of them. I envy those of you who can burn scented candles and wax melts and simmering potpourri ahhh the memories.
