Ensure your glass mason jars are clean and completely dry prior to use.
Using a double boiler, slowly melt the candle wax. Don’t overheat as the wax may burn. Remove from heat.
In the meantime, stick the clip of the wick to the center bottom of the small mason jar.
Wrap the long end of the wick around a skewer and rest the skewer across the top of the jar. This will keep the wick centered in your jar.
Add 15 drops of lavender essential oil to the melted wax and stir. Add more for a stronger scent.
Slowly pour the wax into the prepared jar. Leave the wax to fully cool and set.
Once the wax has set, cut the excess wick 1⁄4” from the top of the candle.
Gently place the small jar into the larger jar.
Working one stem at a time, insert the dried lavender in the space between the two jars. Continue working all the way around the jar until your desired effect is achieved.
Wrap some twine around the neck of the jar with a few stems of lavender if desired.
Expert Tips & FAQs
We have previously tried adding dried lavender inside the candle wax. We do not recommend this method as it can pose a fire hazard. Please be sure to keep the dried lavender on the sides of your jar, in between the two mason jars.
