Candle Refill for Daydreaming at the Saltram Orangery
Intended to refill one of our Large Tin or Ceramic Candles, this pack contains 450g of scented wax, two wicks and a wick holder.
We suggest three methods to melt wax:
- Empty the container into a heat resistant jug (we recommend pyrex), and put the wick and holder to one side. Microwave or bain-marie the jug until the wax is melted. It is crucial that no water gets into the wax though.
- Alternatively place the jug in the oven at 100ºC for about 5-10 minutes, checking it regularly.
- Melt the wax in a small saucepan over low heat. Be very careful not to overheat the wax.
Pour the wax into your container and allow it to cool for 5 minutes. Put the wicks through the two holes and then carefully place over the top of the candle.
Allow the candle to set overnight. Once set, remove the wick holder and trim the wicks to about 0.5cm. If in doubt, longer is better than too short.
For best results, we recommend leaving the candle for a day or two before burning.
You're a chandler too now! Happy pouring.
