well I just ordered some samples of Helen's accent collection

and I wasn't in the mood to make soap tonight

and I planned to get going on candles again during the christmas holidays, but events derailed ...

so, I made a candle (yeah just one sorry not a big production line here)  :mwaha:

with vanilla and tobacco leaf.

dunno how it will burn but the house smells freakin' AWESOME!

Tobacco leaf = heaven!

I haven't thought of combining it with vanilla, that would be lively... Thought it smelled nice with sandalwood or a hint of patchouli Smiley

I'm not a candle expert - but I used 8% FO, with a 6% tobacco, 2% vanilla mix.

It smells - in fact the whole house does  :mwaha: fab this morning.

The vanilla 'seems' to be dominating more than I expected - or would have liked - but that might be different when it burns.

I'm using a blended wax from Candle Shack which is very nice, but I'm wondering if I should switch to only soy. More because its easy to clean than any particular conviction about soy  :mwaha:
