Make your own citronella jar candle and send the mosquitoes packing when you sit outside. Candle making has been around for as long as most of us can remember. From the colonial times when most of the workforce worked at night, the candle making market has boomed and has become one of the most stably growing industries from all round the globe.
The colonial method of candle making is quite similar to the methods used in the 21st Century – the only major difference being the ingredients and the material being used. One of the most important things you need in a candle making project is a mold, in which you will pour the wax, and give shape to your candle, as required. From the time when candle making was first opted as a professional, the makers have been using different molds to create the candles.
However, a recent project which gained popularity not only in the professional market, but also amidst the people who made candles as a hobby is – a Mason Jar Citronella Candle. To make these candles, a Mason Jar is basically used to give shape to the Citronella. In this article from One Little Project, you will see how people can easily make a Mason Jar Citronella Candle at home!
