1.Bring pot with oil to a very light simmer over low heat without boiling it. Stir in pumpkin spice. Remove from heat and set aside to cool. Place pumpkin spice infused oil in a jar and infuse for a couple days.
2. Place wax chips into a pot, setting the temperature to medium-high heat.
Adding 4 tablespoons of stearic acid to the wax is optional. This is not required; however, stearic acid makes the wax harder and more durable.
3. Let the wax cool for a few minutes.
4. Add wick to jar and use tape to keep it up straight.
5. Add oil to mason jar and fill remainder of mason jar with wax then stir to combine wax and oil. Do not pull on the wick.
6. Place in freezer for 15-20 minutes and enjoy!
