Add 4 tbs. of stearic acid to make the wax more durable. Allow the wax to cool and add the wick to the jar. Use tape to keep it straight up. Then, add oil to the mason jar and fill the rest of it with wax. Stir to combine them. Store in the freezer for up to 20 minutes. Now you have a beautiful smelling candle that you can say you made!
