Question: Can I embed anything in gel wax candles?
Answer: As long as they're not flammable or melt-able. But be careful...there are things that you wouldn't think would burn, that will. Like peppermint candies...or coffee beans...or plastic army men...or miniature wooden nutcrackers...or plastic angels. If in doubt, hold it over a candle flame for a few minutes. If it just gets hot, you should be ok. If it morphs or smokes or melts or burns...don't use it!
