ok,...so here is the other cute little idea i had.
green tea scented soy candles.
i popped in to see andrew @ stacks of wax in newtown.
he set me up with a kilo of soy wax, wick, a melting pot (hehe), green tea essence and all the instructions i would need.
quite simply,..you melt the wax at 60degreesC, add some scent,.. pour into the vessel,.hold the wick in place,..and wait 4 hours for it to set.
mine is still setting,..but already the green tea smells amazing. i can't wait to light it during my hot bath tonight!
again,..such a lovely gift idea.
