2. Break the canary yellow dye block in half, add to melted wax, and stir. If you ever see little specks of solid color in the bottom of your candles, try adding the dye block at a slightly higher temperature.
3. Add fragrance. We're using 1 oz. of Honeysuckle Jasmine fragrance oil. When adding fragrance, stir well and remove from heat. Do not let fragranced wax continue to heat as the fragrance will evaporate out of the wax.
5. When the wax cools to 135 F, carefully pour the wax evenly into the 3 jars.
6. Place the wick bar with the center peak facing up on top of your jar. Pull wick taut and gently press wick into the opening of the wick bar. This will keep the wick straight and centered while the candle is cooling.
7. For best results, let the candles cool at room temperature overnight.
8. Trim wick to 1/4 in. before lighting. (do this each time you light it) and enjoy your candle.
Congratulations, you just made your first soy candle!
When you sit back and light it for the first time take pride in the fact that you just made an eco-friendly candle from an American grown, renewable product. If it's just for your personal use tell your friends about it. If you are selling your candles make sure you really market it as an environmentally responsible product.
Note: You can top your soy candles with any of our threaded jelly jar lids.
