Hardening candle wax

14 years ago

Hi all!

I'm about to venture into a candle try.

I have more than a few candles that burned down so fast and all over the place, that I saved them for their scent. Then I read articles about making new candle out of them. I've bought the wicks from Michael's and have the containers.

It occurred to me that I'll have the same trouble with their quick burning softness, since it's the same wax! I was wondering if there is an ingredient or other wax type I could add that would make these a little slower burning? Harder, perhaps?

Thanks. This is my first venture and I want to like the results! I might go a little more indeptth.
