Soy Wax Candle Making Kit

Soy Wax Candle Making KitThe Natures Garden Soy Wax Candle Making Kit is a perfect and simple way to create candles of various scents. This kit comes with all of the necessary ingredients that are needed to create candles. Plus, the kit comes with a printed page of directions that are easy to follow. So, this is a perfect introduction into candle making for those that have not yet tried creating their own candles.

While this is not my first candle creation, I still enjoyed creating this kit. It was nice to have a recipe planned out, so I could just enjoy the coloring and scenting aspects of the project. For instance, I created one candle that was Vanilla Silk on the bottom and Hot Baked Apple Pie on the top. Honestly, I cannot wait to try it out! So whether you have never created a candle or are just looking for an easy craft night, this candle making kit may be something you’ll want to try out!

Soy Wax Candle Making Kit Contents of the Soy Wax Kit

You will receive enough materials to create enough materials to create about 10 candles. Along with the soy wax, you will be provided with HTP candle wicks, hexagon jars (you will have a few extra), and four fragrance oils. These fragrance oils include Hot Baked Apple Pie, Vanilla Silk, Fresh Linen, and Floral Bouquet. So, pick your favorite candle scents! Additionally, you will receive two color blocks, burgundy and green. Finally, you will receive warning labels to place on the bottom of your jars. Since you will only need 3/8 of a color block at most for creating all of your candles, you can feel free to only use one or use both to create your candles.  You can save the rest, along with the extra jars for your next craft.

Soy Wax Candle Making Kit Sterilize and Prepare

Make sure that all of the equipment needed is ready for use. Also, be sure you have any equipment need that is not provided within your candle making kit. Further, be sure that your work area has been sanitized and you have enough room to create the candles, this will include your stove top. Also, be sure to plug in your hot glue gun so that it ready when you need it.

Soy Wax Candle Making Kit Candle Recipe

While we will be following various steps to create these soy wax candles, there will be a basic formula used for creating the candles in this kit. This candle recipe is the following: 1 pound of wax, 1/8 or less of a color block, and 1 oz to 1 ½ oz. of a fragrance oil.

Soy Wax Candle Making Kit Creating the Double Boiler

Soy Wax Candle Making KitThe double boiler will be created to prevent the wax from being scorched. First, take your pan and add about a half inch of water. Next, you should place the pan on the stove. Later, you will boil the water. Also, you will set the pouring pot into the water once all the ingredients are added to the pouring pot.

 Soy Wax Candle Making Kit Melting and Coloring Wax

Initially, you will put one entire pound of soy wax into the pouring pot. Also, add 1/8th or less of either your green or burgundy color block. Personally, I added 1/8th of the burgundy color block to my first two batches and 1/16th of the green color block to the last batch. However, you can add your color blocks in any amount you desire. Now, take your thermometer and set it into the pouring pot. As you melt your wax you should keep an eye on the temperature. Additionally, mix occasionally as it melts. Once the mixture of wax is at 175 degrees Fahrenheit you will be able to remove the pouring pot from the boiling water.

Soy Wax Candle Making Kit Preparing Your Wicks

Soy Wax Candle Making KitSecond, we will anchor your wicks into the glass candle jars. Take your hot glue gun and dab some glue on the metal of the wicks. Next, quickly place this end of the wick into the center of the bottom inside of the jar. Repeat this with your jars until each of the jars are filled.  This can be done while you are waiting for your wax to melt.

Soy Wax Candle Making Kit Adding a Fragrance Oil

Soy Wax Candle Making KitNext, you will wait for the temperature of the colored wax to drop to approximately 130 degrees Fahrenheit. Once the wax cools to this temperature, add one full oz. of your preferred scent. Then, mix well to incorporate the scent. You will have Hot Baked Apple Pie, Vanilla Silk, Fresh Linen, and Floral Bouquet available for you to choose. Personally, I picked Hot Baked Apple Pie, Vanilla Silk, and Fresh Linen for my candle batches. While you won’t necessarily need the fourth for this candle project, you can use your fourth to create a separate project at a later time. Alternatively, you can create smaller batches using each fragrance.  For example, if you used half a pound of wax, you could use 1/2 ounce of fragrance oil.  This would allow you to try each scent in the soy wax candle kit.

Soy Wax Candle Making Kit Pouring the Wax

Soy Wax Candle Making KitNow, wait for the scented wax mixture to cool further. Once the wax had cooled to about 110 degrees Fahrenheit and seems to be like a slushy in appearance it is ready to pour. So, when the wax reaches this temperature you can pour the wax into the glass jars. Get four jars ready and make sure the wicks are fairly straight and carefully pour the wax mixture. Make sure to avoid getting wax on the side of the jar. Also, make sure the wicks remain straight as the was cools. You can use something like pencils or butter knives to hold the wicks in their correct position.

Soy Wax Candle Making Kit Creating the Other Candles

Although you have completed your candles for your first scent, you still have enough materials to complete candles with two more scents. You will follow the same steps to create the next two batches. Be wary that you don’t ignore the temperatures when creating the remaining soy wax candles. It can be easy to get careless as you repeat the same steps, but the temperatures that certain steps are done are not arbitrary. For example, if you pour your wax at too hot of a temperature the candles are likely to have sunken parts and air pockets.  Soy wax also has a natural frosted look to it.  This is lessened by pouring at the correct temperature.

Soy Wax Candle Making Kit Using Your Candles

Soy Wax Candle Making KitFinally, your candles are finished! While you may be excited to test out your candles, you would want to wait a few days before lighting to allow your candle to cure. Once your soy candles have set up, trim the wick and place the lid on.  For the best results, freshly made candles should be able to rest for about three days. Also, you may want to consider adding the warning label stickers to the bottom of the candles to ensure that the candles are used correctly. This is especially important if you intend to sell your candles or to share your candles with friends. But, above all, I hope that you enjoy your candle creations!
