♥ Place your soy wax in a double boiler on the stove (just like you would melt chocolate). You can use a pot & a Pyrex jug but make sure the Pyrex jug doesn’t touch the bottom of the pot. It is ideal if the handle will fit over the pot edge. Alternatively you could use The Candle Maker.

♥ Heat your container soy wax on medium heat to 80-82°C until melted. The wax will start to melt around 40-45°C so check the temperature often.

♥ While the wax is melting, attach your wick to your tin (this is called “wicking”). Do this by attach your wick stickum to the bottom of the metal wick tab on the wick, place the wick in the centre of the container and press down firmly.

♥ Once the wick has adhered to the bottom of the container, thread the wick through the hole in the middle of the wooden wick holder & place the wick holder so that it spans the diameter of the glass, making sure the wick is centered. Bend the wick over the wick holder. This will hold it straight as you pour in the hot wax.

♥ Using your thermometer, measure the temperature of the wax and at approximately 80-82°C add your candle fragrance.

♥ Gently stir in your fragrance for at least 2 minutes. It is important that the fragrance is mixed thoroughly to bind with the wax.

♥ Now wait for your wax to cool to approximately 60-62°C before pouring into your container.

♥ Pour slowly but surely until you reach the desired level, we recommend using a long spout pouring jug.

♥ Allow it to set for 72 hours before burning.

Melting Your Wax

Once you have measured out the desired amount of wax then you need to melt it using the double boiler method. Melt it to 80-82 degrees celsius. Once at this temperature you can add your fragrance and stir off the heat for 2 minutes.
Wicking Black Tapered Candle Tin

Wicking A Tin

Your wick is one of the most important elements of candle making. To secure your wick to your tin attach a stickum to the bottom of the metal tab on your wick, place in the centre of your tin and press down firmly.

Black Tapered Tin Pouring Candle

Pouring Your Candle

After combining your fragrance and wax for 2 minutes take the temperature of the wax and once it reaches 62 degrees celsius you can pour it into your Black Tapered Candle Tin. Pour slowly to avoid air bubbles forming in your glass.
