I made some soy wax candles today. The soy wax is from Candlelyte. You melt the wax flakes and a colour piece in the microwave, stir the wax and add the scent. The wick has a sticker on the bottom to hold it in place in the glass. Pour in the melted wax.
Candles can be made in a glass, ceramic or china container. I’ve used ordinary secondhand glasses from work they make lovely candles. Today I made one big candle and six little tea lights. The tea lights are safe in specially made plastic containers. They are safe because soy wax burns at a lower temperature than parafin wax, its also safer to burn because it doesn’t give off any harmful soot.
