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.
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.

Making your own soy candle molds can be easier then you think, and there are numerous ways to create your own candle molds. If you don’t mind funny feet, and want a larger candle, you could cut the top off of a soda bottle. Just remember to look for smooth sides on your containers, if you plan to remove the candles to burn as free standing pillar candles. If the sides are not smooth, the candles won’t slide out once they are cured. When beginning to look around for ideas on soy candle containers, the primary consideration is whether the container is smooth sided, heat-resistant, and leak proof.
There is actually an entire series of videos (11 to be exact) showing step by step how he did this. I am only going to embed the final video so you can see the finished candle base. The rest of the videos can be viewed by searching for mikessmail on YouTube.
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 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.
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.
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.

Soy candle types and wax can vary significantly from different manufacturers, and come in many forms. As a result, you need to consider what type of candle you are interested in making. Once you decide the type of candle you plan to make, then you can decide the type of soy candle wax required. This may seem a bit overwhelming at first, but my recommendation is to start with pouring a simple candle, and work your way up to the more complex candles as your experience grows.
Aroma Melts, are melted with heat given off from a candle burner. For the purist, you will want to avoid fragrance oils, and use essential oils. Aroma melt burners can use soy tea light candles to provide the heat needed for scenting the room. Some people choose to use electric burners which plug into electric sockets. I prefer to heat my natural soy melts with my natural homemade soy tea light candles.
Aroma melts plus a candle burner make great gifts ideas, and are easy make when they are needed. For holidays, I will use different melt shapes. For Valentine’s Day, I make heart shaped melts, adding my favorite romantic essential oil for the aromas I want.
Soy Tealight Candles
Soy tealight candles are fun and easy candle projects for the novice to begin with. These little candles can be used to heat candle burners, or simple burned in clusters for their own aromas. A great gift idea is to make a collection of soy tealights, and pleace them in sachet bags, to be used as gifts, or drawer fresheners.
Soy votive candles are smaller than both pillar candles, or soy container candles. Once poured they need to be burned in a votive candle holder, for the sake of safety. It takes a harder wax to make a soy votive candle. Once you have learned how to make soy votives using all natural soy wax, if you learn to add all natural essential oils, and natural plant colorants, you will have a perfect all natural soy wax candle. The key is the missing ingredients. No artifical scents, no artifical dyes, no petroleum based paraffin candle wax will be filling your air with toxins to contaminate the air you breath.
Soy Container Candles
Container soy wax candles are just exactly that. Soy candles poured into containers. The containers may be glass, or even ceramic. Normally soy candle wax for containers is softer than other forms since there is a vessel to hold the melting wax. You can even use jelly jar containers, or mason jar containers for larger volume candles. Making a high quality, pure soy candle in an high quality glass container can make a very elegant presentation.
Soy Pillar Candles
When you want to make your own soy pillar candle, the process becomes a bit more advanced. Once again, a harder soy wax is needed to make soy pillar candles hold their shape, and form when the candle is being burned, to hold the wax pool that forms as the candle melts.
