Enjoy the Art of Making Soy Candles

 


Visitors: 181

Soy is nothing but hydrogenated soybean oil form which candles can be made. These candles are fast becoming very popular in the household, as they are environment friendly. Though soy candles are readily available in the market, they can also be made at home by combining soy wax with various fragrances and dyes. The procedure of making soy candles is relatively very simple and involves use of material that is readily available at home.

To start with, you just require a pound of soy wax which is readily available in the market, a mason jar and an ounce of fragrance oil along with the wax dye of your favorite color. The first step to make your first soy candle is to place this wax in a container and warm it slowly, applying medium heat. When the soy wax melts completely, take out the pan from the burner. Now put in the fragrance oil and blend the contents till the fragrance is absorbed by the wax. Also add wax dye to the container and follow instructions on its label so that your candles get the desired color.

Now transfer the contents slowly to the container keeping the wick in the central position. You can do this by using a small stick or rod. To ensure smooth burning of your soy candle, use a larger diameter wick. Soon you will see that the wax is slowly solidifying. As soon as the melted wax solidifies, just cut off the excess wick and your candle is ready.

Just a couple of handy tips: When you buy fragrances from the market, it is important to ensure that that they are compatible with soy wax. The same holds true, with the dye you are using. It is necessary to have a dye that melts with the soy wax.
