How To Make Soy Candles That Are Better Than The Rest

How To Make Soy Candles – It can be a lot of fun to make your own candles at home. The options are very exciting and once you get started, you will be very pleased at how many shapes, sizes and textures of candles you can make. When it comes to choosing what type of wax to use you can take your pick from paraffin, beeswax or soy wax.

Growing up, I was never impressed with either candles or candles in general. I can remember watching TV and seeing commercials for candles and being very skeptical at best. As recently as three years ago I more or less made the same objections for myself. Today, I am pleasantly surprised at just how well the candles have turned out. All the scented candles, the colorful, colorful, beautiful candles.

Making soy candles is not all that difficult or time-consuming either and it is all completely natural and healthy for us.

First, you get to pick what type of wax to use. If you are new to the world of candles and don’t know much about them, the next step would be to learn about which wax works well with which type of wax.

When doing it yourself, you must decide whether you will be making tea light candles or larger pillar candles.

Once you know this, it’s easy to pick which wax you will be using.

Step # 3 – Why Making Soy Candles Is So Easy

My three reasons for love with soy candles:

1.  It’s natural

2.  It’s a renewable resource

3.  Scenting is easy and promotes a wonderful sense of like and easily

On the subject of candles, I always have a couple of candles at home just for myself, a birthday candle, and a Christmas candle. These candles have now been a gift box staple – the candles show up on birthdays, Christmas, and other special days. It is a tremendous feeling when I receive a candle on one of my birthdays at the holidays and just as excited to see its appearance at my wedding.

More than that, I just think to myself how amazing it is to be able to make my own candles, learn how to make them, and find the supplies to do so.

More than that, I love the feeling I get on making them.  I like to think I make these candles just by myself – yes, I’m that special person who knows the best way everything works, so I can really put together the perfect candle. There is nothing quite so special as watching your candle nestle itself right into the box it came in.

Here’s some real fun stuff with this – it is possible to make candles of all different kinds.

You can make candles in just about anything you can think of (situations mostly at home).

Once you start making soy candles, your whole sense of the phrase “natural waxes” tends to reek in the background.

The soy waxes I have found that work the best don’t have very many fragrances to them and those they do have are very easy to smell. When the wick melts into the candle, the smell that is released is gentle and crisp.

One more thing – I find I almost always have plenty of soy wax left if I make a candle in the evening and only have a small amount left by morning. There’s no real need to make a huge candle. Actually, sometimes smaller candles work better than larger ones, although they can sometimes be a bit messier to deal with.

How to Make Soy Candles – Step by Step

1.  Place warm unscented soy wax in a double boiler full of water. Make sure the water is not too hot or cold. What’s the best temperature for melted wax? Your best number is 150-180. You may useBSO-9( exactly as specified, that’s the number of degrees the wax has to reach for it to be called wax). Ideally, you want the wax to be 200 degrees when it melts or if it is cold and goes quickly it will melt more quickly.

2.  Place wick in the mold. If it’s a tea light candle it goes in at this point. It just needs to be straightened up and centered and). Place some apple juice an inch into the bottom of the mold and pour in the wax.

3.  Set wick every where it can be 2 inches up center. The wick can still be slicked out of it.

4.  Crumble some wax paper into a flat yellow paper and place the wick on it.

5.  Wait for the wax to melt. You can always heat it up to 200 degrees after it has been set your self.
