Making Spell Candles

I have had a candle kit for a while now and haven't tried it up until now.  I decided to try my hand at making some money/success candles. 

I melted down about half a block of wax

 

Then ground up my herbs and mixed them together

When the wax was melted I added the color and the herbs.  Once everything was mixed together I did the first pour


After 5 minutes I inserted the wicks, then waited until a well formed and did the second pour.  Once they were all cool they popped right out and I trimmed the wicks.  Here is the final result



I was quite surprised at how many candles I got out of so little wax.  I may never buy candles again!  I also have a kit with a larger mold that I'm thinking about trying next.  Has anyone else tried their hand at making their own spell candles?  How were your results?

Unfortunately i have n't found anywhere a kit like that, but i usually make my candles during Imbolc. This year i did n't. They are so much more powerful than those you buy. Your candles look lovely!

I used the Votive Kit from Michael's Craft Store. It came with the wax, wicks, thermometer, color and votive molds.
