How To Make Soy Candles With Essential Oils

Soy candles are a wonderful addition to any home, providing a soft, warm ambiance while filling the air with delightful scents. And when made with essential oils, you not only get the pleasure of a beautifully scented candle, but you also gain the added benefits of aromatherapy. If you've ever wanted to create your own custom soy candles infused with essential oils, this guide is perfect for you! Read on to learn the step-by-step process and start crafting your very own aromatherapy soy candles today.

To make your soy candles with essential oils, you'll need the following materials:

Soy Wax Flakes:

Choose high-quality, natural soy wax flakes for your candles. Soy wax is a non-toxic and eco-friendly option, compared to traditional paraffin wax.

Essential Oils:

Select your favorite essential oils for the desired scent and therapeutic benefits. Ensure you're using high-quality, pure essential oils for the best results, like those from Oshu Oils.

Wicks:

Consider using cotton or wooden wicks that are free from metal and chemical coatings.

Containers:

Choose your desired containers for your candles, like glass jars, ceramic pots, or metal tins. Ensure they are heat-resistant and properly sized for the amount of wax and wick you'll be using.

Double Boiler or Melting Pot:

A double boiler or melting pot is essential for safely melting the wax without burning it.

Thermometer:

A thermometer is useful for checking the wax's temperature, ensuring it's at the right stage to add your essential oils.

Utensils:

You'll need a stirring tool, like a wooden spoon, and other equipment like tweezers and wick holders to help with the candle assembly.

Step-by-Step Guide

Now that you have all your materials, let's dive into the process of making your soy candles with essential oils!

1. Prepare Your Workspace

Lay down some newspaper or parchment paper to protect your work surface from spills. Ensure you have all your materials and tools at hand, and ventilate your workspace for good airflow.

2. Melt Your Soy Wax

Using a double boiler or melting pot, melt your soy wax flakes over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Keep an eye on the thermometer, ensuring the wax reaches a temperature of around 180°F.

3. Add Your Essential Oils

Once the wax reaches the desired temperature, remove it from the heat and let it cool down to around 120°F. At this point, carefully add your essential oils and stir gently to ensure even distribution. The amount of essential oil to use depends on the desired strength of the scent, usually about 10-12 drops per 8 ounces of wax.

4. Attach the Wick

While your wax cools, attach the wick to your container's bottom. You can do this using a hot glue gun or dipping the wick's metal base into your melted wax and pressing it onto the container's bottom.

5. Pour Your Candle

When your wax has cooled to around 120°F, carefully pour it into your prepared containers, leaving a small gap at the top for safety.

6. Secure the Wick

Use a wick holder, clip, or a pencil to hold your wick centered and in place while the wax solidifies.

7. Let Your Candle Set

Allow your candle to set for at least 24 hours before trimming the wick and lighting it up.
