HOW TO MAKE
TEALIGHT CANDLES

Scroll down to see our step-by-step tutorial on how to make tealight candles

Tealight candles are one of the most commonly found candles in any home. If you are a candle making beginner, tealight candles can be a great starting point to your candle making journey since they are easy to make and can be easily customised with the help of fragrance and colour.

Materials

STEP 1: WAX

Place 115 grams of GB 464 soy wax into a pouring pitcher and, using a double boiler setting or hot plate, heat to 85 degrees Celsius.

STEP 2: PREPARE

Prepare your tealight cups by placing one CDN 3 Tealight 27mm wick in the centre of each cup. There are four tiny plastic prongs inside the bottom of the plastic tealight cups that will help you to centre your wick.

STEP 3: LIQUID DYE

Once your wax reaches 85 degrees Celsius, add 1 drop of your liquid dye and stir gently.

STEP 4: FRAGRANCE

Remove from the heat and add 7 grams of your preferred candle fragrance oil.

STEP 5: COOL

Allow the wax to cool to 65 degrees Celsius and then slowly and carefully pour into the prepared tealight cups. Make sure you do not have any air bubbles.

STEP 6: CHECK

Check that the wicks are perfectly straight and centred. If they are out of shape, readjust whilst the wax is still liquid.

STEP: 7 CURE

Cure overnight.
