How to make your own Gel Candle

Portions are as follows:
1 cup of concentrated Liquid Potpourri from Dollar General
2 packets of Knox Gelatin(this is what helps regular jello become jigglers)
Empty jar
Flower Petals or Cinnamon Sticks or sea shells(optional)
1 Candle wick

Heat potpouri until almost to a boil.
Remove from heat and add 2 envelopes of gelatin.
Stir to dissolve gelatin and pour into clean decorative jar.
At this time add your decorative
items like seashells and your wick.
Place piece of plastic wrap over jar and secure with rubber band.
Either place in refrigerator for quick set or leave out overnight
on counter. Cover with piece of starched "lace" and wrap with ribbon
to decorate. Before using, remove plastic wrap and recover jar with
lace cover.
