Teacup Scented Soy Wax Candles

Soy Wax Candles In Teacups Another Great Soy Candle Gift Idea

Teacup Scented Soy Candles

Gift idea soy candle in a teacup

Shopping around for soy candle containers I decided to see what I could find walking into my local discount stores. Uniqueness is really important especially in the beginning, when you are trying to set yourself apart from any competition. This is very important to remember as you are creating your own home based soy candle business. Since so many people are trying to get started making income from home on a shoestring, I decided to show you another idea on how to make a one-of-a-kind scented soy candle. Plus showing you another idea on how to find low, or no cost candle containers.

Make A Soy Teacup Candle

Make A Soy Teacup Candle

Many ”beautiful” Teacups and Saucers can be found in thrift stores. They make a really beautiful addition to any product line you might be trying to sell, or just to use as a great gift for birthdays, holidays, or perhaps a special occasion.

Here are items you will need to make Teacup Candles:

You Will Need The Following:

1. Teacups (the saucer is optional)  I found these at the local Salvation Army Thrift Store. 
2. Soy Candle Container Wax (I buy mine from Candlewic.) 
3. Candle Wick (Make sure the wick will be a minimum of 1″ taller than the top of the teacup)
4. Candle dye and Candle Scent (optional)
5. Stacking Pour Pots (Make a double boiler)
6. Thermometer
7. Hot Glue Gun

Teacup Soy Candle Directions:

Place a Wick In The Teacup Candle Container

Set a Candlewick In Your Soy Teacup Container

1. First wash saucer and teacup, and wipe them completely dry.

(You don’t want water in the wax, or water spots on your finished teacup or saucer.)

2. Select a candle wick, adhere it to the bottom center of the teacup using your hot glue gun. (I use a the hollowed out portion of a bic pen, run my candlewick into it, because it makes it easier to press the wick in place exactly where i want it.)

3.  Center your candle wick and hold it in place on the top of the candle container. (I use the glue to hold the wick on the dowel, and a bit on the side of the container to hold the dowel centered while I am making the candle).

4. Add wax into your double boiler, melt it, and add dye and fragrance following a soy candle recipe, or manufacture’s directions.

5. Pour melted wax into your teacup container.

6. Let candle cure for a minimum of 24-48 hours before lighting.

Wick A Soy Candle In A Teacup

Scented Soy Candles Teacup Candle

7. Trim candle wick to 1/4 inch before lighting it.

To give you a better idea on how inexpensive it was for me to buy two sets of teacups, I bought two separate cups and saucers for only $2.00.  When I am making these candles at home, I will make up more than one type of candle in different containers to maximize my time.  Because they are unique, and can be gift wrapped very nicely, these will quickly sell for a nice little profit.

Making scented soy candles can be a very lucrative home based business model, for more information on how to get started including writing a business plan, scenting your soy candles, complete instructional guide books on how to make soy candles and tealights can be found on the homepage of Scented Soy Candles.

Make Homemade Candle Molds For Soy Wax

By Debra Hardy  2010-08-24

How To Make Homemade Candle Molds

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.

Identify The Best Candle Scent For Your Money – Essential Oil, Hydrosol, or Fragrance Oil?

Aromatherapy Oils, Essential Oil, Fragrance Oil, or Hydrosol For Candles

By Debra Hardy 2010-08-18

Balsam and Cinnamon Fragrance

Unless you want to know how to make an unscented soy candle, consider this article a crash course on how to select pure high quality scents. Is it an  Aromatherapy Oil, an Essential Oil, Fragrance Oil, or Hydrosol?

Know How To Identify Perfume Oils, Flower Water, and Pure Aromatherapy Oils

With so many choices to make, knowing how to identify a pure aromatherapy oil from the fakes on the markets can be very confusing. Unfortunately  hydrosols, fragrances oils, and essential oils are sold throughout all over the Internet, and in hobby and craft stores making it very difficult for the uninformed to make the best choice possible.

To help you understand, the therapeutic properties contained within pure essential oils are used in the practice of aromatherapy. Fragrance oils do not hold any  therapeutic properties possessed by pure essential oils.  Hydrosols have no therapeutic properties of their own, plus they are considered a ‘by-product’ of the pure essential oil distillation process.  This is why it is being able  to identify and tell the differences between these three different oils can be difficult.

Essential Oils – Do NOT Buy Altered or Adulterated Products

Every individual essential oil is rendered from a unique plant. With costs rising, profit margins decreasing, many individuals, and companies are trying to cut costs, and ‘copy’ natural essential oils. The fact is, nature’s essential oils are expensive to produce.  Most important you need to understand, there are no healing properties, or therapeutic value to be found in adulterated or synthesized ‘copies’ of the original essential oils.

Pure Essential Oils Chemical Make-Up

Essential oil when produced consist of difficult to identify individual chemical components and are extremely complex substances and difficult to isolate.  Plus factors surrounding the growth of the plant itself, and how it is impacted by nature itself, make it ‘difficult’ at best, if not impossible to replicate factors related to growth and natures influence.  (Natural impacts are shown below, but the list is not an exclusive list.)

  • The weather.

  • What country a plant is grown in.

  • Soil quality – what condition is the soil chosen to grow the plant in.

  • What time of day is the plant harvested and distilled.

  • Even the altitude of the soil will impact the growth of the plant. For example, a lavender plant grown at a low altitude will have a different chemical structure, that a lavender play grown above 2000 feet.

When purchasing essential oils, you must be aware essential oils are sometimes sold as a pure product when, in reality they are not. Second, this altering of the essential oils may not be identified on the product label.  The most important thing you need to understand however, is a pure essential oil will not lose the therapeutic properties essential for the healing process, it will not be diluted, and it will not be chemically changed in any form.

Hydrosols Used in Aromatherapy

Flower water are also referred to as floral waters. Some properties of essential oils exist in hydrosols, because flower water is actually the waste water of a essential oils distillation produced. (Not oil)

Essential oil is thought of as a non water-soluble product, but some of the essential oil components actually dissolve in the water base, and can be blended with                   to make a plant hydrosol.  As a result of this, adulterated hydrosols can be found in circulation, being sold almost the same as essential oils.

Jasmine is one example of a ‘fake hydrosol and producing both the hydrolat, and the actual essential oil. Consider this essential oil carefully before purchasing it, because the process to make Jasmine ‘essential oil” is a process known as solvent extraction, as a result you can not buy a Jasmine product named ‘pure’.

Remember, the fragrance oil is quite popular within the USA, but they are completely synthetic, and do not contain any therapeutic properties like those within essential oils. Fragrance oil is used in the perfume industry, because the smell itself is the most important quality.

If the smell of the soy candle is all that is desired, not the healing properties of the scented soy candle itself, fragrance oil can actually be a cheaper alternative, as long as you remember the healing, therapeutic values of essential oils are non-existent in fragrance oil. Many home-made bath and beauty products are made by hobbyists, and small business owners because they are less expensive to use when producing their products.

Identify The Difference Between Fake Oils vs. Pure Essential Oils

Hopefully, this will make it a little easier for you to identify how to tell the difference between fake essential oils, pure essential oils, and hydrosol, or flower water.  By continuing to study the subtle differences between hydrosols, those who are selling fake essential oils, fragrance oils, and the real essential oils, you should be able to select a good supplier of pure essential oils, not substandard products.

Scented Soy Candles Enhanced with Pheromones are in HOT! DEMAND!

As the economy gets tougher, more and more people are looking at every conceivable business opportunity to find the best ways on how to make money from home, and in many cases they need low start up costs. How to make some serious money from home takes the development of a very unique selling proposition. One of the highly lucrative business models growing in demand at this time are products being made from bio-degradable, Eco-friendly, green,  renewable resources.

Since I have written a number of articles about how to create your own successful home based scented soy candle making business from home, I just wanted to expand upon an idea for a very special product line some of you might be interested in, or never thought about considering.

Once you decide to start a scented soy candle business from home, the next idea is how to find your own niche to stand apart from the competition.

Pheromone enhanced scented soy candles offer great potential. You want to create a very special product line which can be personalized for individual customers keeping them coming back year after year, while growing not only your customer base, but also expanding your fledgling companies profitability.

Romance has it’s own allure, and so do candles created especially to put everyone in the mood for romance.

One of the ideas you may want to consider is developing a very intimate, discreetly sold, marketable line of pheromone enhanced scented soy candle products. Imagine how the ladies and gents will be flocking to your door step before all of their romantically planned moments, dinners, holidays, even anniversaries over the course of the year. Imagine how they will be calling you to get their “special” candles made for all kinds of romantic moments. If making money is important to you, then this is a great way to develop a product line guaranteed to grow you a recurring customer base in a hurry. Personalizing and expanding your scented soy candles line even further on an individual basis can be further enhanced by good record keeping. Calling or dropping a friendly postcard, or email reminder before the date arrives to ask for special orders can make a significant increase in your profit margin. Keep track of their interests, and surprise them with your personal attention.

Please see my pages under the soy candle products tab where I have a page devoted to soy candles and pheromones, another for soy candle fragrance oils and essential oils, plus candle making supplies.

Remember, the higher the percentage of female pheromone, the more expensive it will be.

Scented Soy Candles Articles Ezine Article Information

Hi everyone,

Well I am slowly being able to publish more articles. However, the recent ones have been posted at EzineArticles. So to make sure you are able to see them, I added a new web page under my Articles Tab with a second RSS feed pulling in all of the articles. Here is the link to Scented Soy Candles EzineArticles Page for your convenience.

The latest articles I was able to write about include the healing powers of aromatherapy, and another on why organic soy candle wax is ideal for making aromatherapy candles.  For anyone who is interested in making their own soy wax massage candles, I think you should read the article about organic soy candle wax. In my opinion, you will be wanting to make them as pure as possible, since you will be using the warm soy candle wax on naked skin. Also, certain essential oils are really strong, so you need to develop your knowledge about using them especially when you are making aromatherapy scented soy candles, or when you are making soy wax massage candles.

Thanks again for all of your positive comments, and support!
