home made candles with scents?

How do you make homemade candels with scents?

I was flipping trhough a Christmas catalog and they had candles in coffee mugs. I thought this would be a great project to do at home, just not sure how to go about it.

Update:

Oh! I also need to know how to make candles. Do you just melt the wax stuff somehow?

    Also remember to use a double boiler when melting your wax. You can buy one or make one yourself as another poster mentioned. You need it to control the temperature of the wax so you don't accidentally ignite it.

    Well, you would need to take a run down to the local craft store, like michaels, and buy wicks and fragrance. Wax as well, but you can always use old candles or crayons for color. Set up a double boiler, which is a pan with boiling water and on top, another pan or glass/metal bowl. You put your wax in the top pan and let it melt. If you used old candles, you would remove all the old wicks once melted.. At this point you would add crayons for color and add fragrance if desired. Then you would put the new wicks in your mugs(i recommend using some melted was as glue to hold the wick on the bottom), and pour the wax on in. Then, let it harden. You can put them in the fridge if you want. Enjoy!!!
