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 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.
