If you are looking for a homemade candle -you have came to the right place   


why buy homemade Mayo candle -its all very simple 


*candle are made in Mayo  by adults with intellectural disabilities who make candles as  a hobby (isnt it wonderful )


The headquarters of  this organisation is western care  and is located in Castlebar  Co.Mayo and its mission statements is a follows -


Western Care Association exists to empower people with a wide range of learning and associated disabilities in Mayo to live full and satisfied lives as equal citizens.


Candle making is an art  that has survived for years  ( 200 AD,) and has now  become a wildly popular hobby today.


They are a work of art, memerizing to look at...and they make great gifts. I have it summarised in these steps to make beautiful homemade candles.


Prepare the wax- protect your work area before you begin,put newspapers,or towels on the surface you will be working on.


Put together a double boiler similar to one you might use while cooking food. You cannot put candle wax directly on heat.  
 It must be melted slowly or it may catch fire or evaporate. Fill a large pot or pan halfway with water. Place a smaller pot or pan in the larger one.
 This smaller pot is the one you will melt the wax in. Keep in mind that wax can be difficult to clean--you may want to purchase a cheap pot specifically for candle making.


Cut or shred your wax into chunks or shaving- ensure that the wax melts at an even pace.. 


Place the wax chunks  in the smaller pot . Turn  on the heat to high so that the water boils. The boiling water will slowly melt the wax-use a themometer to keep an eye on the temperature of the wax.


Add Mayo scent and essential oils and colouring to your melted wax. Stir well


Place a wick in the center of the candle mold. The wick should be in the center of the candle mold with about two inches sticking  out of the candle .


Molding the Wax .Place them on a flat surface in your protected workspace (such as on a cookie sheet or a cutting board.)


Pour the melted wax into the mold. Pour slowly so that it does not spill over.


Cool the wax. It is best to cool them for a full 24 hours if possible.  


Remove the wax from the mold and trim the wick to within a quarter inch of the top of the candle.


Please forgive me if I have left out anything ( as I have made it all look so easy in a few sentances) as I am not a candle maker or an expert in this field- I did my best to take all the knowledge with me from Carrowbeg Enterprises as I carefully watched all those workers who were so happy and worked to make those beautiful candles. They can now be shipped anywhere in the world to you so that you can enjoy Mayo candles made with love and attention.


Thats what was involved in making just one simple candle !!!


Light the wick, burn the candle and enjoy the masterpiece - sooth your senses, relax your mind, as the room fills with a pleasant Irish  fragrance, release the stress and think of all the good times spent in Mayo (if you are homesick )or maybe you felt that you wanted to contribute to this wonderful business by buying Mayo gifts -its all the community working together .


To have these workers part of this projest (see all the candle workers that attended my launch ) it is fantastic !


 when we  buy those candle with Mayo scents which are made by adults   who have a intellectural disabilities we are giving the workers a sence of pride and purpose  and we could turn their hobby into a little industry for them -wouldnt it be fantastic !
 it makes me so proud to have Western Care workers part of this exciting business .
