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

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.

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.

Gardenia Scented Soy Candles – How to Double Wick Candles

My friend Shirley, (also the lady I just moved in) with raved about my gardenia scented soy candle when she walked into the house yesterday. Yes, I have been busy, because I just made more gardenia scented soy candles for our house.

In the video I used the fragrance Tangerine, but we really love the clean smell of Gardenia.  Shirley loved the fact our whole house smelled so fresh, I wanted to post my YouTube Video under GreenGardenerGal so you can see how I made the double wick scented soy candles.

Return to home page of Scented Soy Candles to see special promotion on the book “How to Make Soy Candles and Tea Lights!”




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!





Scented Soy Candles Video How to Double Wick

How To Make Double Wicked Scented Soy Candles Video

When it gets right down to it, the larger container candles need more candle wick. This is necessary to provide the appropriate amount of heat required to create a melt pool that fully covers the candle surface. If you do not have the correct wick sizes, or quantites, tunneling will occur because the full surface of the wax is not consumed as the wax is burned.

See the article I wrote on candle burning problems for more specifics.

So on that note, I made this double wicked scented soy candle using a tangerine fragrance, and turned it into a video. Because wick placement correct wick placement is so important, I showed you one of the ways that I use the wicks in combination with a dowel rod, and a glue gun to secure the candle wicks exactly where I want them before I pour the soy candle wax.

Question Asked: What additive will make candle wax last longer?

Can An Additive Make Soy Wax Last Longer?

Help! Is there anything natural, or any type of additive that can be mixed into  candle wax to make it last longer? What about a soy blend wax, or palm wax?  I do not want to buy a lot of candle wax, because it is so expensive. Will adding fabric softener,  lotions, or shampoo increase the volume of the candle wax, and still burn?

Comments will be welcome, but I felt I should make a blog post in response to Shirley’s question posted under the blog comments instead of responding to her via email.


 Candle safety is a primary consideration.

Personally, I would not consider it safe to add any additive to a candle wax product you intend to burn, unless it is approved by the National Candle Association.   Read the rest of this entry »
