    I loved this.

    I enjoyed watching your video. You did a great job, and it was fun watching
    you. So what if it didn’t turn out perfect the first time you did it. At
    least you tried something new, and the next time you do it, it will be even
    better.

    I make candles and I reckon you did really well. Keep at it, it is creative
    fun and no two candles ever turn out the same – but they are all beautiful

    Yeah, for sure. :) I think my children learn a lot with me. And I with
    them! It’s pretty neat. :) Thanks again for your comments!

  • AMomentWithRachael says:

    Wow, that stinks! I know it… garbage, private property. Hmm… if it
    were, why not keep it inside the business and not send to the same landfill
    everyone’s stuff goes to? :)

    You did a great job!

  • AMomentWithRachael says:

    She was helping a bit, but I didn’t know what I was doing here, lol. This
    was my first time trying and I didn’t want her getting burned. I made up
    the amount of essential oil as I went. :) Thanks for the tips! I’ll try to
    let her help more next time. :)

    the candles look fine your family should love them did you ever make soap
    you need glycerin lye and some perfume to add smell.

    everything else??

  • Dudus108 says:

    Just found your channel today and I LOVE it! Great candles! I myselfnam
    experimenting. You know that you can actually reclaim the candles you
    found? The ones with broken glass? You can meltnthem and repour into what
    ever you like! Try it!

  • Caitlin Price says:

    I wish my first time craft experiments turned out that well! You don’t
    really need a whole bunch of extra tools if you don’t want to go that
    route. You could always try scooping out the wax from your double boiler
    into a measuring cup that you don’t mind getting waxy to pour into your
    containers. you could tamp down your wicks with a small amount of melted
    wax and some sort of metal piece-you can buy wick bases at the craft store
    or the hardware store probably has something similar in shape

  • LalaCats3 says:

    if I were your mom or sisters, I would feel lucky to get this gift!

  • AMomentWithRachael says:

    Thank you! Yeah, they loved them! :) Yay! I know, I’m so excited! I’ve been
    packing all day. :) I got caught up laundry so as not to forget to pack
    anything we wanted to take.

  • AMomentWithRachael says:

    Thanks so much for the encouragement, Martin! :) Your comment made my day!
    Also, thanks for subscribing. I hope you enjoy my future videos. :)

  • AMomentWithRachael says:

    Oh man! I have a hard time going that long without! It’s just too fun. :)

  • AMomentWithRachael says:

    A craft store had thrown them away without opening the boxes and I found
    them. There was 1-2 broken ones in each case of them. :) I bought the wick
    online. The essential oil came from the health food store on sale. The wax
    was also found behind the craft store thrown out. The rest of the stuff I
    found at a thrift store in a bag for cheap.

  • Martin R. says:

    Hi Rachael, I don’t know anything about candle making but I would say you
    did an excellent job with them. Something like that would go for $10 – $15
    in a store. I subscribed to you a few days ago and I really enjoy your
    video’s. You seem to be a very kind and caring person. You are very
    inspirational and I always feel good after watching you. You are awesome!!!
    Keep the video’s coming. Martin.
