Safety & Tips
Set up your work space in a well ventilated area that is free of any potential fire hazards and ensure you have enough workspace so that the melted wax won’t touch any other objects.
Read all the safety instructions provided with your DIY candle making set before embarking on the project and make sure to wear protective eye-wear and heat resistant gloves.
Start by melting the wax. Make sure to use low heat settings when melting wax, as it can ignite if heated too quickly or at extreme temperatures. Ensure to use a heat-safe container or double boiler, and avoid using open heat sources like stove top burners. Also be sure to stir frequently while heating to prevent hotspots from forming.
If desired, add scent by using essential oils or scented wax chips/shavings; but ensure not to exceed 10% maximum fragrance load as adding too much oil can cause your candles to smoke when burning.
Once the wax is melted, pour into prepared containers leaving some space at the top for additional layers that you may want to add later on (depending on desired results). Allow some time for cooling before proceeding with additional layers, if applicable. *Never try to move or touch hot wax : always wait for it cool off!
Insert wicks into each candle container and center them prior to pouring more layers of melted wax; this will help maintain proper burning conditions once lit – centering & securing wick with a wick bar also helps keep it in place. Let harden after each layer has been poured in before proceeding with next layer(s).
