Let’s make it quick and simple, the recipe for four small candles.
1. 6 cups pure soy wax flakes (non-GMO if possible)
2. Natural wicks
3. Use 100% pure essential oils 80-120 drops (your favorite essential oils)
4. Prepare containers, glass, jars, or, ceramics to make sure the item is heat-proof.
1. Glue or tape to hold the wick to the bottom of the container.
2. Scissors to trim your wick
3. Heat-proof container for melting the wax in.
5. Measuring cup to measure your wax
6. Workspace cover to cover work surface to make sure it can clean up easily.
1. Melt soy wax in a pot over low to medium heat. Turn up the heat slightly, taking a few minutes, using a paddle pop stick for the stirring.
2. Once melted, add 75-120 drops of essential oils.
3. The wicks, add the wicks, measure the height by holding it next to your container, and then add a few centimeters on the bottom and top. Used sticky tape, fold it around itself to make it double-sided, then secure it to the bottom of the glass or ceramic. Use a skewer to press the wicks down and stick it to the bottom. Later on, you will need something to hold the wick taut and centered on the bag clips that perfect size to fit it over the jars.
4. Pour them into the heat-proof jug and then use a microwave for 1 minute, then take them out, stir them and do microwave again for 1 minute and stir.
