When creating a Ladyburg candle, there is much love and care given to the actual pouring process. The wax is melted to the perfect pouring temperature. While it is melting, the preparation for each candle begins.
Each whiskey glass is cleaned with alcohol in order to remove any residue or contaminates and a flame-warning sticker is added to the bottom.
They are laid out on the counter, as the candles will be poured in sets of six. Two wicks are meticulously added to each glass to ensure that there is proper placement.
The wax is poured into a large container and the fragrance is added. Slowly Crystal stirs it for a couple minutes to ensure that it is properly mixed throughout the wax.
Each whiskey glass must be heated up to make sure that bubbles don’t appear in the candles after being poured.
With caution and ease, Crystal pours the wax into the whiskey glasses. After they are all poured she adjusts the wicks to make sure they are taut and are centered properly.
Each candle sits for a minimum of two hours to harden. Then the wicks are cut to the proper height. Labels are created for all the scents that will be sold, with the final touch being a black and white damask piece of paper fit which fits over the top of the candle for protection.
The candles are inspected to ensure that each one looks perfect and has no flaws. The candles then sit for at least a week so that the fragrance has time to meld into the wax making it more potent when burning.
The love, the devotion, and the perfection that comes from the making of a Ladyburg candle are evident when you purchase one. They are just beautiful.
Candle Burning Advice
Crystal did give me some advice about burning her candles:
- Do not burn them for more than two hours
- Cut the wicks down before you light the candle
- Once the candle is burned down to the bottom, reuse the glass!
