Azaria Jones, 12, makes candles for her business, 'Vibe with Scents.'

"A lot of research, a lot of organizing, a lot of planning," said Azaria. 

Stirring: that's the most important part. 

The end result, Azaria says is worth it. 

Her candles feature a variety of long-lasting scents, like bubble gum, pecan pie, and her favorite scent, pink watermelon. 

The candles cost between $6 and $12.
