There are so many pretty and easy DIYs on this site. It has been really a huge help for me.

I love the layered idea for making holiday scented candles! Such a cool idea! I've always liked just one scent in each of my candles, but I might have to combine scents now with combinations that could go together but usually don't. Like maybe gingerbread and apple cinnamon for Christmas scents? This really sounds like fun!

Wow, Marilyn, I wish I had been on your son's gift list for one of his amazing candles. I can say the candle-making section of the craft store is one row I have not been in, but that's going to change. I love the idea of choosing my own colors and fragrances, and having multiple fragrances in one jar. What kind of jars should I buy?

My son made 60 similar method layered candles with peppermint, pine, winter, and spice fragrances using soy wax. Soy, palm oil and beeswax are better for breathing and don't leave soot! The bottom or first layer he made was scent free because that portion is a base and doesn't burn to the end for safety reasons! He made one for everyone in the family, even with a little holly leaf on top! Big hit!

These are sooooo cool! Candle making has been at the top of my to-do craft list for a while. I'm always inspired by layered candles I see on Etsy, so I can't wait to make my own.
