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.

Richly Scented Soy Candles Delight All

Delicious Soy Candles Brings Fragrant Scents To Holidays

Everybody loves rich, aromatic, delicously scented soy candles. A few things will be important for you understand before you begin attempting to start making soy candles for your home based candle business, personal hobby, or just for gifts. However, there is an art to the process, and the uneducated novice can easiliy make “expensive” mistakes. Making errors in judgment can be costly, even dangerous because you may waste the soy wax, essential oil or fragrance oils, even candle wicks, or possibly even cause a fire from improper wicking.

You need to decide before jumping into any project, exactly what you want to make. Once you have made that decision, then you need to purchase the correct wicks for your particular soy candle wax, and even candle type you intend to make. Pillars, tea lights, votive candles will all need different sizes and lengths.  How much fragrance  or essential oil will your particular candle wax will hold. What’s to much, what’s too little? Third, but equally important, is the type of wax you are purchasing right for the candle you desire to make?

When mixing soy candle waxes with fragrance or essential oils there are known techniques that need to be followed or problems can occur. Take a look at  some of the problems I have seen frequently occuring, which I have posted on my FAQ page.

Plus everyone wants the most fragrant candes possible. So learn how to do it right, keep records of what you do, how you do it. (My book provides a test record sheet) Overtime, you will save yourself many repeats of failures, and the abiltiy to reproduce successes. When you find that “one” candle idea that gives you your own Unique Selling Proposition, don’t find out to late, you don’t remember what you did.

Have fun, and don’t forget how important candle safety is. Read the candle safety articles so you are informed, and follow all safety guidelines outlined in my books.

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.

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

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.

Scented Soy Candles Pheromone Enhanced Are In HOT! DEMAND!

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.
