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 🙂
Things You Will Need:
Not pictured: Pot, water, tongs
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.
Add some soy to your mason jar.
Using the tongs, pick up your mason jar and put it in the water.
After about 10 mins it will start to melt.
* You might have to add more soy wax to the jar.
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.
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!
