Oils or scents - This plays an important role for natural smell and aromatherapy.

Let's start friends :-
  • Clean and protect your work space area before you begin. Keep newspaper towels or rags for cleaning purpose in case of spills.
  • Cut your wax into small pieces, so that it melts faster.
  •  Take a large pot filled half with water.
  • See that there is space to place a smaller vessel to melt wax in a temporary boiler.(Note: You cannot put candle wax directly on heat, it'll catch fire or evaporate).
  •  Take small pieces of wax into small container inside the larger pot.
  • Place the pot on heat to high, until the water boils. The boiling water melts wax slowly.
  •  Observing the temperature of wax is very important.
  • Paraffin wax's melting period should be between 122 and 140 degrees.
  • Soy wax's is to be melted between 170* to 180*.
  • Bees wax should be melted from 145* to 175*.
 Now time for scent you love. Essential oil or fragrance oil can be used to blend. See the amount directions in the bottle. Use doper to add scent into the wax. Mix it very well. Check your thermometer, it should be around 130-140 degrees.

 Now go for colors. Dyes (oil based) or crayons are used to achieve your favorite colored candle. Add more color until you see it perfect. Stir the mixture.

 Now get ready ---
  • You can use tiny tins, old tea-cups, glass jar, fancy look tiny mugs etc. Anything that can survive heat.
  • Then place the wick at the center of the candle mold with two inches sticking out of the candle. Just after few minutes, wax begins to cool and hardens.
  • It 'll stuck solid to bottom.
  • Having improper wick means it won't burn properly and you don't want that. Simply place an old pencil or pen tied with wick in between.
  • It just needs to get steady in center for few hours.
  •  It takes long for wax to fully set and watch for the need and watch for need to be filled in.
  • Now time to level the wick sticking out few inches from candle.
  • One should light the candle to see the flame once, if the flame is more than usual then trim it and light again.
So friends, bit of practice, hard-work, testing, you can be master in the making unique candles that you can be proud to burn, give as a gift to friends and family or sell it.
