All you need is:

  • A selection of porcelain teacups
  • Wax (we recommend soy wax because it burns without smoke, but you can also use paraffin or beeswax). This is also a great opportunity to use up old candle stubs.
  • Wax wicks
  • Wooden skewers
  • Candle-making dyes and scents/essential oils (optional)
  • Cooking thermometer (if using scent)
  • Masking tape
  • Double-boiler (or a can/smaller pot inside a large pot with water in it)
  • Oven mitts

Happy Tea Break.
