New Carrot Cake Candle On Etsy
I recently did a natural candle coloring experiment while writing an article for The Saponifier magazine. I used safflower petal powder to infuse my melted soy wax and I think it came out beautifully. I am really loving the color. I expected the color to be very intense because of the color of safflower petals, but the mild creamy orange is pleasing to my eye.
I scented this batch with carrot cake and a hint of vanilla coconut. Not a very strong candle, but one that will make you close your eyes and breathe in, not oen your window and blink your eyes.
So I have one listed on Etsy and when i get around to photographing the travel tin candles, I'll put those up, too. Oh, those little flowers are from my pretty orchid plant at home.
