Updated: Mar 21, 2019

If you're a candle person like me then you're going to love making your own candles at home! This, while messy, was a easy thing to make and didn't take more than an hour at the most to do. I imagine once you get the hang of it it'll be even faster. Especially when you're not pouring hot wax all over your kitchen counter.

Watch the Reluctant Housewife episode here and get the supplies for this below!
