What is the Written Procedure for Scented Candle Making?

Making Delicious Scented Soy Candles. How Do I Get Started?

Rose votive kit and soy candle ebooks

Scented soy candle votive candle kit

Lately on social networking sites I have been getting asked questions about what is the written procedure for making scented soy candles.  How do I get started?

First you need to consider what you want to make. The Rose candle votive kit shown on the left is a perfect example of what I mean. Are you wanting to make table decorations for your bridal shower? Perhaps bridesmaids gifts?

Do you wanting to make candles as a hobbyist just to burn around the home, on the patio, or for gifts for your friends?  Are you an entrepreneurial teen starting to make a few candles just to make a little extra money?   This is very popular under Teen Money Making Ideas.

Are you wanting to start your own home-based business making and selling soy candles by distribution to stores?  Are you a serious business entrepreneur, who wants to start an online business reselling your candle wares?

 Now you are thinking about what to do, consider what will be your unique selling propostion (USP)? What could set you apart from the rest? May I suggest keeping simple records of each individual customer, their likes, their family, their interests, even what they purchased. Perhaps you will want to make a specialty candle of the month, or make special soy candle gift baskets. Or would you love to make candles for holidays.

After your USP has been decided upon, do yourself a favor, and take the time to write out a detailed business plan. This will help make sure you have considered all of the potential obstacles you will have to overcome to achieve success.

Thanksgiving Soy Pillar Candle Centerpiece

Making A Thanksgiving Soy Pillar Candle Centerpiece is Fun!

For the purpose of this demonstration, I will post my YouTube video showing how to make a thanksgiving centerpiece with a scented soy wax pillar candle.


When you make your own homemade candles you will want to use them everywhere. Combining candles, fall flowers, colors, scents and thanksgiving craft ideas makes for great family fun. Because of it’s simplicity, this could be used as a kids craft for thanksgiving.

Do it yourself centerpieces are fun to make, and they are a wonderful way to incorporate the colors of thanksgiving into coffee and dining room table decorations.

I bought a glass pedestal candle holder, a fall holiday wreath, pine cones and some green colored ribbon, which I made into bows. You can use store bought materials for the sake of convenience. But hopefully you are in a part of the country where you can find lots of beautiful natural materials outdoors. As a kid, we went out in the woods, and picked Bittersweet in the wild. It would have been beautiful wrapped around a candle base like this.

First I placed the candle holder upon a platter, so I could move it around with ease. On the platter, I centered the pedestal stand. Inside the glass candle holder I placed a 7″ soy pillar candle made from one of my holiday scented candle recipes, made from a blend of cinnamon and cranberry essential oils. Around the base I wrapped a fall wreath.

If you are using wild craft items, have floral wire and wire cutters to bind the stems, and hold them in the shape you desire. Embellish the branches with pine cones, and other items of your liking. I then place green bows around the centerpiece just to add a bit more festive look to it.

Don’t forget, you want to be careful examine your final arrangement so the decorations and fall flowers used cannot accidentally come into contact with the burning candle wax. Always keep burning candles out of the reach of children and pets for the sake of safety.

Enjoy the holiday season and thanks for stopping by.

Happy Mothers Day To All You Beautiful Ladies!

Happy Mother’s Day!

This post is for all the beautiful ladies who are so loved by their spouses, family, friends, and loved ones! I walked outside, and found these Irises had survived yesterday’s Las Vegas 95 degree heat, so I decided I really wanted to share them with you.

Scented Soy Candle Mother's Day Salute!

My Mom's Favorite Color

That’s the nice thing about having a blog on my website. I can do this.

I decided to share my flowers with you just so I could wish all of you..  “Happy Mother’s Day!”

My mother’s favorite color was this shade of purple. I am rather fond of it now myself, thanks to her.


Mother's Day Soy Candle Holder Gift Ideas

Great Mother's Day Gift Idea

These salt lamp tea-light candle holders are my favorite gifts to give because the salt lamps give off the smell of freshness into the air when soy tea light candles are burned inside them, causing them to warm up.  The first time I burned them on was on this counter top. Good thing, there was such a beautiful place mat under them because I  was shocked to find it covered with moisture. Something in the ion process makes them attract water.

I have a couple of articles about the Himalayan Crystal Salt Lamps for candles if you are interested in reading more.

(Place mat made by my friends mother. Thank you!)


In loving memory of the special ladies in my life. My Grandmother’s Olive and Helen, Grandma Creviston, my Mom Betty, Mother-In-Law Arlene, and Aunt Loraine.  Love all of you!!

Ditto from all the bros!

Love you Jennifer, Christina, Teri, Beth, Sheryl, Sunny, and Karen!

I am so grateful, there aren’t enough words. Thanks for blessing my life, and teaching me so much about love, kindness, flowers, and beauty just to name a few things. And our national parks…………… mom and dad.

The rest of you special ladies I will be calling & you know who you are. Love you too!


Mother’s Day Soy Candle Gift Ideas

How to Make Your Mother A Special Soy Candle Gift For Mothers’ Day

Tomorrow is Mother’s Day so what better way to say I love you than to make her a special Mother’s Day candle?

Make a Soy Candle For Mother's Day Gift

Floating Soy Candle Roses

What’s her favorite scent, her special color? Will you want to make some rose scented soy candles to go with a bouquet of roses you plan to give her? Or how about some floating candles? I have some heart-shaped and rose shaped candle molds that make very nice floating candles for bathtubs, or to float in the punch bowl.

Or how about making mom a special personalized candle?

Here’s just one idea that I think that would be great even for smaller children to make a unique candle decoration to give their mother on her day. And what fun you can have making them together! (Yes, adult supervision is recommended for the little kids!)

Here’s a nice touch, fill flower vases with fresh flowers or fruit’s and set a floating candle on top to complete the decoration.

Use candles with colors that complement your fruit or flower color scheme is a nice way to tie it all together.

The instructions are simple. Here’s what you will need:

  • Fresh flowers or fruit
  • Floating rose candles or soy melts
  • Glass container or flower vase
  • Water
Instructions:

1. Fill the flower vase about half full of fresh flower tops, or the fruit of your choice. If you decide to use a citrus like oranges, lemons, or limes, be sure to slice them before adding them into the vase.

2. Slowly fill the container with water, stopping ~ 2 inches from the top. Place your floating candle gently on top of the water so your candle continues to float.

A word of caution, don’t use just any candle wax if you intend to float your candle in water with anything edible, or that you will drink. I wouldn’t want paraffin wax anywhere near my food or liquid refreshments, because it’s made from petroleum-based products. Also when making your own floating soy candles, I would be very selective of the color used, and the fragrance in any floating candle I use around any liquid that might later be consumed.

Hope you enjoy this pillar candle base for all you crafty candle making crochet fans.

Himalayan Salt Crystal TeaLight Candle Holder

Salt Candle Holders Are Mother Nature’s Own Air Freshener

Scented-Soy-Candles is thrilled to bring you my initial results after testing my new Himalayan Salt Crystal Tea Light Candle Holder, and the opportunity to own your one too!


Mother Nature's Natural Air Freshener

Scented Soy Candles Tea Light Salt Candle Holder


My new crystal salt tea light candle holder really surprised me. About 6 hours after burning soy tea lights in the salt crystal candle holder the outside of the candle holder had attracted moisture, and the sides were damp to the touch. From my research, the salt crystal attracts moisture during the negative ion creation process . When you get your own salt crystal tea-light holder, remember to place your soy tea light holder on a stand, or coaster before lighting the scented soy tea-light candles. Surface damage could occur as surface moisture collects when conditions are right.

My candle holder is really beautiful lit at night don’t you agree? I really was pleased by how bright it appeared with just the light produced by my tea light candle.

Keep reading and learn where to get your own Himalayan Salt Tealight Candle Holder.

My sinuses are wide open this morning, which is extremely unusual due to allergies. Past two nights, I have slept really sound. My concentration seems to have improved, which brings me back to what got me interested in the first place. I work on the computer several hours every day, and have for years. Recently a friend pointed out from observation, I had difficulty keeping focus on one thing at a time. The data with the candle holder indicating concentration would improve was attracted me in the first place.

Electronic Smog and Light Therapy

Let’s touch upon “electronic smog” produced by computers, TV’s, electronics which is bombarding us with an electromagnetic frequency around 100 160 Hz (Hertz). Normal brain waves vibrate at roughly 7.83 Hz. the same as the Schumann Resonance Frequency. Sitting in front of a computer, or TV’s is exposing our bodies to vibration frequencies often 20 times higher than our natural brainwaves. Research shows this can imprint upon our brainwaves, causing lack of concentration, concentration weakness, insomnia, even nervousness. The constant exposure to varying frequencies also increases the build up of free radicals with the human body, a proven cause of cancer, when the natural development of our cells is disrupted or altered.

My salt crystal tealight candle-holder distributor advised me to place a salt candle holder on my computer table, where I work all day, and another within a few feet of where I watch TV to counter the electronic smog. In fact, she surrounds her electronic smog bombardment area with salt crystal lamps and salt crystal candle holders to get maximum exposure to the good ions.

When our eyes are exposed to certain wavelengths produced by these salt crystals (especially in the orange crystal wavelength range) epidermal skin tissue reorganization is positively influenced. Allopathic medicine reports I am reading discuss how these therapeutic wavelengths are being used when treating skin cancer.

Testing was conducted on Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) symptomatic children. ADHD symptoms subsided after being exposed to crystal salt lamps for only one week. At the end of the test period, when the lamps were removed, the symptoms returned.

Europeans have believed for many years in using Himalayan Salt to treat a number of aliments including rheumatism, high blood pressure, migraine headaches, allergies, asthma, this salt is know for it’s unique air purifying abilities.

Research conducted in a small Japanese study found blood pressure was positively affected by the Schumann resonance frequency, therefore more testing on human health is warranted.

How Does the Ionization Process Occur?

As the soy wax tea light candle holder absorbs moisture the negative ion field builds up. Excessive bad or positive ions bind with the (good) negative ions, neutralizing the positive ion charged atmosphere within a room.

The Himalayan salt crystal vibrates at the same electromagnetic wave length as our brainwave patterns do. Salt crystal appears to naturally amplify the resonant frequency 8-10 cycles per second, helping harmonize the artificial frequencies. Which in turn, helps counter the imprinting process of the higher faster wavelengths produced by electronic smog.

My plan is to continue burning scented soy tealight candles in my natural Himalayan salt crystal candle holders, and to buy more of them, in addition to reselling both the Himalayan salt crystal tea light candle holders and Himalayan salt crystal lamps. I am able to offer them via my website now. You can purchase your own candle holder with, or without purchasing my eBook, or receiving all of my bonus ebooks.
