DIY Blueberry Muffin Soy Candle

DIY Soy Candle

I’ve wanted to make a soy candle for quite a while. This weekend I picked up some soy that can be microwaved (in case this doesn’t go as planned) and some blueberry muffin scent. I’m pretty excited about this Make Something Mondays 🙂

Step 1:

Heat up your water. A little less than half of your pot should have water in it. It doesn’t have to boil but it should be close to.

When the wax is fully melted take it out of the pot. You want the wax to cool to 125 degrees.

When it gets to that point you can add in whatever scent you want. Make sure you stir it well.

Step 6:

Put a pencil or utensil over the top of the jar and wrap your wick around it so that it stays put.

Let it dry.

Make sure you cut the wick to 1/4″ above the wax. There ya go, you’ve got yourself a soy candle!

  1. THIS IS SO AWESOME. I’ve been wanting this soy candle from Hobby Lobby forever, but now I’m going to try to make a go at making my own. Do you add food coloring if you want a colored candle?
