Candle Making Steps

1. Clean Container

    If reusing a previous antique candle or mason jar container, soak interior of container with hot water until glue at the base of the wick becomes soft, then scrub off. Repeat until glue is completely removed. Wash all containers with degreaser soap. Dry well.

    2. Place wicks

      Place container on a flat surface. Place sticker on bottom of wick(s). Place wick(s) with wick stickers 3 ½ inches away from container wall and 2 inches away from other wicks until you are unable to add more wicks. No wick should be close to edge of container. Depending on shape of container, you might only need to use one or two wicks.

      3. Heat Wax & Refill Candle

        Empty one, 1lb bag of soy wax into non-stick pot and heat on low or simmer, stirring constantly until wax is melted completely. Carefully pour hot wax into container, leaving 1” of wick on top. Do not pour wax directly onto wick(s). Let wax cool and solidify. Pull wick(s) straight before wax completely solidifies. Use pencils or spoons to help hold wick(s) in place. Let candle cure for 24 hours before lighting, then enjoy!
