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.

Soy Wax Melting Safety Concerns

Soy Wax Melting Safety Tips For Scented Soy Candles

Learn What Not to Do When You Burn Soy Candles

Here is what not to do when you burn your soy candles

Halloween, Christmas and Thanksgiving are coming soon, and more people make, use, and give candles as gifts then any other time of the year. So I just wanted to urge everyone not to forget safety concerns.

Learn how long to burn soy candles, how to trim the candle wicks each time, and how to prevent tunneling which the candle on the left exhibits.  When candle wax burns down to the base of a glass container, there is a risk the glass could shatter from the heat. The spilling wax, and flames could start a fire. (Click here for more safety tips)

When you work with flammable candle wax making candles you must be extremely vigilant, and NEVER get distracted for any reason.

This is just one of the many reasons, I only make candles using soy wax. Although soy candle wax has a higher flash point than paraffin wax, spontaneous combustion will still occur if the wax is allowed to overheat. 

The melting point of soy wax is normally between temperatures of 110°F and 130 °F. While water boils at 212° F, well below flash point’s of soy waxes, or paraffin wax.

Understanding the flash point of  every wax you use is very important. Each one can be different. When any wax reaches it’s given flash point it will burst into flames by itself. You must understand the wax may not bubble or smoke, and when it explodes flaming wax can be thrown in every direction.

Avoid this potential catastrophe! Don’t risk burning down your home, or serious injury. Always use a double boiler, or a candle wax melter when you are making your candles, and follow all candle making instructions, and read any instructions from the candle wax  manufacturer. A word to the wise – if the wax is smoking it’s too hot .

Never melt wax in a microwave! You cannot control the temperature wax is heated up to, and microwaves vary tremendously in output strength. For example, the butter in my microwave peanut brittle recipe burns in one microwave, and does not finish cooking in another microwave because of lower wattage.

Several soy waxes I’ve looked at recently have flash points between 450°F and 600°F.  In comparison, many paraffin waxes list flash points near 395°F.  The melting point of soy wax between temperatures of 110°F and 130 °F

Just one more thing. Never burn candles in front of open windows where curtains may be blown towards them from a breeze. Never burn candles where children or pets are, because they will always do the unexpected.

Let’s have a happy, healthy, wealthy, and joyously prosperous holiday season!

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.

Candle Safety Labels Have Industry Standards

Candle Safety Labels Must Follow Candle Industry Standards

In the United States, candles must be labeled with safety information following specific guidelines developed by the ASTM International standards organization.

These guidelines are relevant in the United States, and are often reviewed by international regulation authorities and candle organizations worldwide.

Because fires resulting from candles were on the increase,during 1997 the National Candle Association got involved at the request of the U. S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to lead the way in pioneering an ASTM subcommittee for the purposeof developing improved candle fireworks safety standards.

Membership on the ASTM subcommittee on candle products includes safety organizations, fire officials, the CPSC, and members of the NCA and other interested parties.

This has resulted in the publication of six ASTM candle standards. Two standards are reference standards.

Key ASTM Standards for Candles*

Cautionary Labeling Standard

Reference #: ASTM F-2058
Effective Since: 2000   Revised October 2007

Safety” labels have exact rules as to what is to be said, where the label is to be placed and the typesize (which varies according to the size of the labeling panel).

This standard sets forth specifications for the warning label that cautions consumers to always burn a candle within sight; to keep candles away from things that can catch fire; and to keep candles out of the reach of children.

Reference title: Standard Specification for Candle Fire Safety Labeling

Heat Strength of Glass Containers Standard

Reference #: ASTM F-2179
Effective Since: 2002

This safety standard sets specific scratch test and temper specifications for the correct annealing of glass containers used for candles in addition to thermal shock differential requirements.

Reference title: Standard Specification for Annealed Soda-Lime-Silicate Glass Containers that are Produced for Use as Candle Containers

Fire-Safety Design Standard

Reference #: ASTM F-2417
Effective Since: 2004

This fire-safety design standard specifies acceptable flame height, freedom from secondary ignition, stability and end of useful life requirements.

Reference title: Standard Specification for Fire Safety for Candles

Candle Accessories Standard

Reference #: ASTM F-2601
Effective Since: May 2007

Specifications are established in this standard for labeling and testing candle accessories for fire-safety manufacture. (Including potpourri burners, candle burners and candle rings. ) It is anticipated by 2008 the standard will be enlarged to include candle holders and other accessories.

Reference title:  Standard Specification for the Fire Safety for Candle Accessories

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.
