- Glass jars or containers: Choose heat-resistant containers to house your candles. Upcycling old jars is an eco-friendly option.

- Thermometer: A kitchen or candy thermometer will help you monitor wax temperature.

- Double boiler or slow cooker: These appliances ensure even and safe melting of the wax.

Step-by-step Guide to Making Organic Candles

  1. Melt the wax: Add the wax to the double boiler or slow cooker, gradually heating the wax until it reaches a liquid consistency. The recommended temperature is around 160-180°F (70-80°C) for soy wax and 155°F (68°C) for beeswax.
  2. Prepare the wick: While the wax melts, prepare the wick by cutting it to the desired length, allowing an additional 1-2 inches for knotting. Prime the wick by dipping it into the molten wax and letting it dry on parchment paper.
  3. Prepare the container: Ensure that your heat-resistant container is clean and dry. Attach the primed wick to the bottom using a dab of hot wax or a glue dot. Secure the wick in an upright position using a clothespin or pencil, resting on the container's rim.
  4. Add essential oils: Once the wax reaches its ideal melting temperature (referenced above), turn off the heat and allow the wax to cool for a few minutes. Blend in the desired amount of Oshu Oils essential oils, typically 20-40 drops per 16 oz of wax. Stir gently to ensure even distribution.
  5. Pour the wax: Carefully pour the wax into the prepared container, leaving at least half an inch of space from the container's rim. Set the container aside, keeping the wick aligned and steady as the wax cools and hardens.
  6. Trim the wick: Once the wax has completely solidified, remove the wick holder and trim the wick to approximately ¼ inch above the candle's surface. Your organic essential oil candle is now ready to be lit and enjoyed!
