Make Your Own Vegan, Hand Poured Soy Candles

5 Fun Steps

Step 1 :  Choose containers you like

Candle Deli has a range of plain glass containers which you can label or brand as you wish.  Both glass and ceramic containers work well for soy wax.  Ensure that you choose a container which is heat resistant and has a thick bottom.  Choose a container with a diameter between 6 and 7 cm.

Step 2:  Gather It All Around

Find a clean, level bench or work table, preferably close to a microwave.  You can melt soy wax in a microwave, on a gas stove, or on an electric stove.

Checklist :

  • A quality fragrance oil of your choice
  • Soy wax
  • A suitable wick which matches the diameter of your container
  • Sosatie Stick and a Clothes Peg, or similar
  • Container
  • Heat resistant glass jug (if using a microwave)

 Step 3:  Just Do It

Melt a little soy wax in your microwave.  Cover the bottom of the glass with melted soy wax.  Position the wick and leave the soy wax to cool.

Tip:  If you struggle to keep the wick in place you can glue it down with a clear glue.

Keep the wick centered and upright in whatever way works for you.  The Candle Deli soy candle making kit comes with everything you need to get started.

Step 4: Mix It Up

Melt the rest of the soy wax.  Add a fragrance oil of your choice.  Fill the glass and leave to cool.
