Candle making is so much fun and this 'Do it Yourself' kit is great for beginners. In a bid to share our passion, we have put together all the candle making basics you will need to get started. It's quick and easy. One block of soy wax and one bottle of candle fragrance oil will make two candles. We recommend that you make your candles in batches of two whilst you are learning.
We hope you enjoy candle making as much as we do!

Step 1

Setting up the glassware

Make sure your glassware is completely clean and dry in preparation for candle making. Any residues of wax or water can affect the end product result. Setting up the glassware: Place a round wick stickum on the end of the wick, then press down firmly to secure the wick in the centre on the inside bottom of the glass.

Next, centre the top of the wick using the wick holder and pull gently to straighten the wick, securing it in place with the wooden peg.


Step 2

Melting and pouring the wax

We recommend the double boiler method to melt the wax.

Use one block of soy wax and ensure that the wax reaches a temperature of approximately 75C using the mercury thermometer provided.

Alternatively, use a microwave and microwave safe container (not included) to melt the wax.

Once molten, pour the wax into the 1 litre wax pouring jug.

Step 3

Mixing and pouring the fragrance

Choose one of the fragrance oils, pour it into the molten wax and stir thoroughly using the bamboo stick. Once well mixed, slowly pour the combined wax and fragrance into the medium Oxford glasses your prepared earlier.

Be sure to leave approximately 1cm from the top of the glass rim. Now let your candle cool down for a couple of hours.


Step 4

Finishing the candle

Once completely set, remove the wick holder and peg, and then trim the wick to approximately 1cm above the wax.

Please leave your candle to set and harden overnight so it becomes completely solidified.

If you just can’t wait, though, it’s possible to burn these partially set candles for instant enjoyment.

 

Congratulations! Your first homemade soy candles are now ready to burn!
