Eco Soy Candle Making

Eco Soy Candle Making

Eco soy candles are an economical, natural and renewable source for creating your own candles. Eco soy candles are made from soy wax, a by-product of soybean oil production. Soy wax is natural, renewable, and cleaner burning than paraffin. Here is what you need to know about making your own eco soy candles:


You will need the following items to make your own eco soy candles:

  • Soy wax
  • Candle wicks
  • Essential oils or fragrance oils
  • Glass containers or molds
  • Candle thermometer
  • Soy wax flakes
  • Pouring pot
  • Wick pin
  • Measuring cup
  • Scissors or knife


To create the perfect eco soy candles, you need to use the correct measurements for the wax and fragrance oils.

Soy Wax1 oz.
Fragrance Oils2-3 drops per 1 oz. soy wax
WicksSize 700-800


  1. Heat your soy wax flakes in a pouring pot over medium-low heat.
  2. Once the wax has melted, add the fragrance oil and stir with a wick pin.
  3. Place your wick in the center of the container or mold and secure it with a wick pin.
  4. Turn off the heat and allow the wax to cool to 180°F, then pour the wax into the container or mold.
  5. Allow the soy candle to cool completely (at least 4-5 hours) before trimming the wick and lighting the candle.


There are a few tips to help you get the most out of your eco soy candle making experience:

  • Choose the right type of container or mold – This will affect the burn time and scent throw of the candle.
  • Wick size – Choose the correct size to ensure the wax burns evenly.
  • Add color – For a lovely, natural-looking candle, add soy wax flakes to add color.
  • Stir the wax regularly – Stiring helps release any trapped air bubbles in the wax.

Making eco soy candles is a fun and rewarding activity and a great way to reduce your environmental footprint. With just a few simple ingredients and supplies, you can create beautiful, natural and fragrant candles!
