soy wax – container blend
cotton cord wick – 3″ longer than the height of the jar
metal wick base
Large glass measuring cup
Determine the amount of wax needed: Fill the glass container with water. Pour the water from the container into a measuring cup and make a note of the amount. 1 pound of melted soy wax will make 2 ¼ cups of liquid wax. Dry your glass container.
Fill your pan 1/3 of the way with water and place on stovetop. Bring water to a boil. Place the un-melted wax into the glass measuring cup and place in the pan of boiling water. This like a homemade double broiler.
Wearing oven mitts remove from heat and place on a heatproof surface. Add fragrance oil when the temperature drops to 125 degrees. Stir thoroughly. The amount of fragrance used is a personal preference. You can add more drops for a stronger scent. A good guide line is between 20-40 drops.
When melted wax reaches 110 degrees – very slowly pour wax into your container to just below the top. Let your candles rest at room temperature (Not a cool and drafty place) Make sure the wick is centered and taught.
Once wax is completely cooled, trim the wick to ¼” long. Wait 4 days before burning in order to settle the fragrance.
