Are you ready to create a beautiful scented candle?
1.Melt 1 lb of soy wax (16 oz) using a double boiler. Heat wax to 185F. (It is also a good idea to pre-heat the glass jelly jars to about 125F to avoid “pull away”).
2.Break the dye block in half, add to melted wax, and stir. If you ever see little specks of solid color in the bottom of your candles, try adding the dye block at a slightly higher temperature.
3.Add fragrance. We’re using 1 oz fragrance oil. When adding fragrance, stir well and remove from heat. Do not let fragranced wax continue to heat as the fragrance will evaporate out of the wax.
4.While the wax is cooling, place a wick stickum on the bottom of the wick and center the wick inside the 8 oz jelly jar. Repeat this step for your second jar. Note: You will have some leftover wax. You can use it in smaller containers such as tealights or save it for your next batch.
5.When the wax cools to 135F, carefully pour the wax evenly into the 2 jars.
6.Place the wick bar with the center peak facing up on top of your jar. Pull wick taut and gently press wick into the opening of the wick bar. This will keep the wick straight and centered while the candle is cooling.
7.For best results, let the candles cool at room temperature overnight.
8.Trim wick to 1/4 inch before lighting (do this each time you light it) and enjoy your candle.

Important Warning: Candle making can be dangerous if not performed properly. Adult supervision is needed at all times. Wax is flammable if overheated. Never leave melting wax unattended, as it may lead to a fire.
