Demonstration Video of Making a Candle with Caramel
This demonstration video will show how to make a unique candle using caramel. The materials needed for this project include a wax block, glue gun, wick tabs, wicks, double boiler, and of course some delicious caramel seasoning. The first step of the process is preparing the wax block. This should be done by placing it in a double boiler and melting it until it liquefies. Once melted, the caramel can be added and stirred in until the desired consistency is reached. Now you are ready to assemble the candles. Using a glue gun to attach the wick tab to the bottom of the wax block before threading through the wick and securing with a knot. Securely place your pre-made base of your candle into an appropriate container with enough room for your mixture to fill up when liquid. Finally, pour in your melted caramel wax from the double boiler into your container surrounding the wick base that you had previously placed inside and let cool for about an hour before trimming off any excess wick length at about 1/4” from above the top layer of wax so that your candle is ready for use!

Alternatives to Using Caramel in Candle Making
1. Beeswax: Beeswax is a natural wax that can be used in place of caramel in candle making. It has a longer burn time than paraffin and does not release any unhealthy chemicals into the air when burning. Furthermore, beeswax provides an attractive, golden glow to candles and its aromatic properties are suitable for aromatherapy products.
2. Soy Wax: Soy wax contains no animal products, so it is suitable for those looking to make vegan-friendly candles. It also produces less soot and smoke than traditional paraffin wax, making it more environmentally friendly. Moreover, soy wax spreads fragrance effectively which allows you to create candles with strong scents without having to use huge amounts of aroma oil.
3. Coconut Wax: Coconut wax has a great scent that adds to the overall aroma of the candle’s burning experience. It also burns slower than other options such as paraffin wax or beeswax; this means that you can use it for larger and taller containers for specialty candles that stay ignited for extended periods of time. Additionally, coconut wax produces lower levels of black smoke which makes it better for your health and the environment compared to paraffin washes or beeswax mixtures used in traditional candle making processes.

Safety Tips and Warnings for Candle Making with Caramel
One of the main concerns when making candles with Caramel is the temperature at which Caramel can become incredibly hot. It is important to ensure that heat sources are kept away from candles when heating the Caramel, as it can easily cause an extreme burn hazard if not properly monitored. Additionally, any melted wax should be kept away from young children and pets.
Another safety tip is to wear protective clothing such as long sleeves and eye-wear when pouring and dealing with hot wax or Caramel. All precautionary measures should be in place before beginning a project involving Caramel or flame, as burns and other serious accidents can occur without warning. Additionally, never leave a candle burning unsupervised and always monitor children when handling any type of flammable material such as candles or hot wax.
Finally, using only food-grade caramel will guarantee a safe product for use around food items or places where food may be consumed near candles made with caramel. Having this assurance will allow for the item to be ingested safely in the event that something goes wrong with the ultimate use of the candle.
