Here are the details on how to make delicious smelling fall candles that you can easily make for your home or share with friends.
- Prepare an area for the candles to be poured by placing newspaper or large sheets of paper over a firm and flat surface.
- Place the glue dot on the bottom of the metal sustainer of the pre-wick.
- Place the metal sustainer of the pre-wick in the center of the tin, and press down to help secure it to the bottom.
- Empty the 1 lb. bag of soy wax into the pouring pot.
- Heat the soy wax by placing the pouring pot into a large pot of water that has been brought to a boil. This will create a double boiler; don’t place the pouring pot on direct heat.
- Heat the soy wax until it is completely melted. Once the wax is melted, place the thermometer in the wax to get a temperature reading.
- Add shavings from the dye blocks until you achieve the desired color. (Candle will set up lighter then what shows in the pot at 150°F.) Mix thoroughly, until all shavings are completely melted in the wax.
- Allow the soy wax to cool to 140°F, and add the fragrance. Use 1 oz. of fragrance per 1 lb. of soy wax.
- Once the fragrance is added, pour the melted wax into the candle tin. Fill the tin until the wax reaches the groove in the tin, about ¼” from the top.
- Once the candles are poured, take the bow-tie clip and place the top of the pre-wick through the center of the hole of the bow tie clip and secure it in the groove. Allow candle to completely cool.
- Once the candle is completely cooled, trim the wick to ¼” and place the burning-instruction label on the bottom of the tin.
- Allow the candle to sit for at least 24 hours before lighting.
Remember follow all Safety Guidelines and General Instructions to create the best candles possible.
