Glass cups approximately both with a capacity of 70gram, so the candles will turn out about the same mass. Well rinse the cups, remove all greasiness and stains on them and wipe dry. We cut off about 140 grams of paraffin from a large piece.

We grind it, now we put it in a metal plate, now we put it on the prepared heated water bath. We melt the paraffin until completely separated, do not boil. Now we cut off the wick, two segments with a height slightly larger than the height of the cups.

Remove the plate from the water bath with dissolved paraffin and add the following. Two or three drops of Orchid flavor and a few drops of any vegetable essential oil, in this case we add a few drops of orange oil. We mix everything well and pour this mass into prepared forms so that the thread of the wick touches the bottom and is in the center of the glass container. We try to pour the already melted paraffin into the container in order not to disturb them for about two full hours. Accordingly, the hardening time of the candles is about two hours.

Now we put glass containers with candles in the fridge for about twenty minutes, so that the candles easily fell out of the containers.A small note: do not immediately put the containers with a liquid mass, because the effect of candles is not the same. They should harden in a natural way, and literally for 15-20 minutes they should be put in order for them to easily get out of the forms. We lay out the candles on a napkin and cut off two pieces of tape of 20-25 cm.
