Step 1: Gather Your Materials
Before you embark on your candle making journey, it's essential to gather all the necessary materials. You'll need soy wax, a double boiler, a thermometer, candle wicks, fragrance oil (optional), and a container for your candle. Having everything ready will ensure a smooth and enjoyable candle making experience.
Step 2: Melt the Soy Wax
Once you have all your materials ready, it's time to melt the soy wax. Place the soy wax in a double boiler and heat it over medium heat. Use a thermometer to monitor the temperature, and once the wax reaches around 185°F (85°C), it should be fully melted and ready for the next step.
Step 3: Add Fragrance Oil
If you want to add a delightful fragrance to your candle, now is the time to do it. Remove the melted wax from the heat and stir in your chosen fragrance oil. This step allows you to personalize your candle and create a scent that suits your preferences.
Step 4: Prepare the Wick
While the wax is cooling, take a moment to prepare your wick. Place the wick in the center of your chosen container, ensuring it stays upright. You can use a wick holder or a pencil to keep it centered. This step is crucial for a well-balanced and evenly burning candle.
Step 5: Pour the Wax
Once the wax has cooled to around 135°F (57°C), it's time to pour it into your container. Pour slowly and carefully to avoid any spills or air bubbles. This step requires patience and precision to achieve a smooth and professional-looking candle.
Step 6: Let it Set
After pouring the wax, allow your candle to set for at least 24 hours. This waiting period is essential for the wax to fully harden and ensure a longer burning time. Once your candle is fully set, trim the wick to about 1/4 inch, and your soy wax candle is ready to be lit and enjoyed.
