Making Soy Candles with Essential Oils

Making soy candles with essential oils is necessary if you want to experience real aromatherapy.

Soy candles are great because they're all natural; they're made from 100% soybeans, and also easy to clean up, just use soap and water.

It cannot be helped that consumers in the new era gets an increasing awareness on the use of environment friendly products and so this product will be preferred. This candle is made of all natural ingredients resulting to very minimal exhaust and is biodegradable.

Basic Recipe

To make Soy Candles you will need three (3) basic components that are soy wax, dye and the fragrance.

Melt 1 pound wax in a clean pan in medium heat. Remove the pan when the wax is completely melted to avoid overheating. Add 1 ounce of fragrance with a few drops of dye while cooling and then pour the combination into the molder while the wick is positioned to the center of it.

You may use a pencil or a clothes pin to keep the wick straight. The container may vary as desired like a mason jar. After cooling, cut the wick to half an inch from the tip of the candle made. Use as desired for your personal enjoyment.

To use : put the soy candles in a container, soy wax has a lower melting point than paraffin and you may find a puddle soon after lighting if it's not in a container.

You can make soy candles with Essential oils easily. Here are some essential oils you can use: Lavender, Peppermint or Patchouli essential oils. Or try blends of 2 or 3 essential oils for making soy candles.
