5 hrs 5 mins
120g ecosoya PB wax flakes
Roughly 6-8 shavings of lime green dye block ( I grated it on a fine zester and also used proper candle dye.. not food colouring)
12mls of fragrance oil of choice which mine was 'alien' (hence the reason it's green)
1Heat water in slow cooker
2(I used a 1.5l on high)
3Weigh up wax and add colour
4Place in a durable device. Something that won't melt. I used a Pyrex jug because it has the pouring spout.. I also considered a stainless steel milk jug
5Put in water uncovered for approx 4 hours or until the wax reaches temp of 65°C (measured with a candy thermometer).
6Add fragrance and when wax cools slightly as it will drop in temp when the smell is added, pour into a 6 pocket clam shell moulds and let set for 24 to 48hr before sealing.
1Not all waxes have the same melt and pour point and some fragrances also use a different fragrance:wax ratio.
2I used 10% fragrance to wax as when I bought them that's what the instructions were.
