Step 7: Combine and fill jar

Picture of Combine and fill jar
Once the rendered grease and melted wax have been combined, it's time to pour the Man-dle.  If the Man-dle is large-ish, there will likely be "significant shrinkage" as the mixture cools.  This is normal and will not effect the performance of your Man-dle, only its appearance (honest, ladies!).  To minimize this, allow the mixture to cool slowly.  Another alternative is to pour the mixture in several layers, cooling the Man-dle in the freezer between each layer. 

Once the Man-dle has solidified, cut the excess wick material. 

The Man-dle is shelf stable for several months without refrigeration, but I suggest it be stored in the freezer.  This will increase the Man-dle burn time.

I used a 4 ounce jelly jar for my Man-dle container so that I could add a lid and give it to my buddy at his Bachelor Party. 

Yep, that's right, a Bachelor Party.  If we aren't careful, men around the globe might start having their own scented candle parties at home with 15 of their closest friends!  I can only imagine what we could expect at a Rubbermaid party for men! 

Light 'em if you got 'em.
