The first thing that you are going to want to do is gather all of the supplies that you are going to need for this project, the supplies are as follow: All natural soy wax, cotton wick, wick tab, candle mold, a double boiler, a carving knife, a spoon or ladle, some olive oil, and a thermometer.

Once you have everything that you need simply follow the soy candle making instructions as follows, are you ready to get started?

Step # 1. The first thing that you are going to want to do is to start melting the wax. With soy wax you want to keep an eye on it the whole time that you are melting it as soy wax is very delicate. Take the double boiler and fill the bottom pan about half way up with water. Now take the top pan and cut pieces of the soy wax in to it, place the double boiler on to the stove top and put the heat on medium. Make sure that you keep your eye on it and the you stir often. You are also going to want to check the temperature and make sure that the soy wax never becomes hotter than 170 degrees.

Step # 2. Now you are going to want to get the mold ready by first making sure that it is clean and dry and then wiping the inside of it with olive oil or vegetable oil as this is going to prevent the wax from sticking to the mold later on when it dries. Now string the wick through the wick tab if this is not already done for you and then place the wick tab in to the bottom of the mold. Try to keep it centered. Now take the excess wick and wrap it around a pencil or a pen and lay it flat across the rim of the mold as this is going to prevent the wick from getting in the way when you pour the melted wax in.

Step # 3. Now the wax should be melted by now so if you want now is the time to add any fragrances or color dyes. Now take your time and gently and slowly pour the wax in to the candle mold, if you want you can always use a ladle to make the process easier. When this is done simply place the candle mold to the side and let it sit undisturbed for 24 hours. When this time has passed simply take the mold, remove the candle from it and trim the wick to about a quarter of an inch. When this is done, you are done with these soy candle making instructions and have a nice soy candle to show for it.
