How to Make Soy Candles
Follow along to see how easy and fun it is to make your own soy candles. Soy candles make great gifts for friends and family but they're also great if you want to make extra cash or even a full time income.
Step 1: Gather what you need: We provide everything you need to make the candles shown in the video above in our soy candle making kit
You will need:
Pre tabbed wicks
Heat Source (hot plate, double boiler, microwave, presto pot, wax melter)
Take your soy wax and measure out 1 lb with your kitchen scale. Place into your pour pitcher. Place on heat source and bring wax up to 185 F.
Once your soy wax has come up to 185 F, remove from your heat source and add your fragrance oil. Stir your wax and fragrance oil about 20-30 times and set to the side to cool.
Prep your containers. Take your candle containers and your pre tabbed wicks. Take your glue stickers, remove the backings and place directly on the bottom of the tabs of the cotton wicks and place directly in the center of the candle containers.
Take your wick centers and place onto your wicks and secure with the notch so that they stay centered.
Ensure that your wax has cooled to around 135-140 F, your soy wax should be slightly cloudy. The cooler you pour your soy wax, the nicer the top of your candle will be once it has completely cooled. Once cooled, stir a couple more times and then pour the wax right into your prepped candle containers.
That's it! Wait at least 24 hours for the candles to cool and set. Once cooled completely you can remove the wick center, cut your wicks, and label your candle for use!
