This week I made my first attempt at making soy candles. They actually turned out a lot better than I thought and it was surprisingly easy! All you need to do is pick up a few supplies from your local craft store and do some mixing.
I don't want to give you specific measurements to use, because I'm sure that different brands of soy/dye/fragrance recommend different amounts. I just used one pound of soy wax and melted it in a measuring cup. Then I mixed in a tiny bit of dye (yellow, of course) and fragrance (cinnamon buns mixed with a little bit of vanilla).
I made one candle in a clear, vintage teacup, and I had enough leftover to make two little tea-light candles. It took a little while for them to dry, but I'm pretty happy with how they turned out. This is definitely something I'll try again!
Have any of you ever tried candle-making?
