soy candle making


  1. It’s interesting to learn that when it comes to making candles that there are somethings that I might want to keep in mind to make sure that the process is done right. I am glad that you mentioned that one thing to consider doing is using a container twice to measure the wax chips. This is something that I will have to keep in mind to make sure that I am doing things correctly, and hopefully making them right.

  2. Not trolling. Not trying to be mean. If ANYONE makes candles according to these instructions, they will put every one and thing in danger by lighting the end result. Please do not make candles per these instructions. This is not the correct and NO WHERE near safe. Your friends and families lives are not worth a DIY craft gone bad. I have made candles for years and have grown my company to fully and comfortably support my family of 6 and it took YEARS to make a candle the right way. Please do not use this method.

  3. I see that my last comment is awaiting approval which means someone must see this…I swear I’m not trying to be mean. I actually am enjoying browsing the site but please take down these “instructions” or at least edit them so they are not life threatening. Fire is no joke. Please.

    1. Can I ask where the danger lies? I’m just starting out making candles, with the hope of being able to sell once I’m proficient enough, and am a little over-whelmed by the differing instructions I’ve seen online. Thanks

  4. Listed below are simple steps using which you can make your own homemade scented candle:
    Start by preparing a clean and flat surface covered with a newspaper or towel
    Second measure the amount of wax required to fill the container
    Start melting the wax by pouring it into the double boiler
    Add the fragrance oil and stir for few seconds, it will provide an exquisite floral smell
    Attache a wick to the bottom of the container before you start to pour the melted wax
    Use chopsticks to secure the wick so that it remains centered until the wax solidifies
    Wait for few seconds, once the temperature reaches 140 Degrees pour the wax into the container
