Soy Candle Making 101

Hello Friends! One of the most popular questions (if not the only question) I constantly get is, “Paige, How do you make a Soy Candle?” Normally I reply, “Well, I melt Soy Wax and add fragrance and color and Voila!”. Normally I get a shocked response like, “Really, That’s it?!!”. Yes my friends, that is pretty much the basic formula for candle making however as some of you may or may not know, the experimentation process (although rewarding) can be tedious and heart breaking. I’m not sure if any of you have attempted making candles or run your own Candle business, but the process of perfecting your own recipe is really (in my opinion) the most DIFFICULT TASK EVER. I can seriously continue talking about my hardships, sweat, and tears, but I will save that drama for another time πŸ˜‰ In this weblog article, I present to you a pretty basic but cool instructional video I found on how to actually make a Soy Candle πŸ™‚

The steps are pretty straight forward. Although my processes are slightly different (ie: I cook my wax rather than microwave), once you get these basics down, you can experiment away to create your own recipe and add your own style to it πŸ™‚ You can purchase candle making materials at Michaels or any Craft Store in your area. Enjoy!
