Candles Made Easy.

***Of course use care and always follow manufacturer’s instructions

006

 

I start off with 100 % Botanical
Soybean Flakes wax

 

 

 

005

“T” lite cups and SS7
1 1/8″ HTP ( HTP High Temperature Paper) wicks. “T” lite cups measures approximately .3 oz of wax. Here I made 8 (8 x .3 = 2.4 ounces)

 

007

 

 

 

Wax flakes inside regular can-good can.

 

 


008 (2)

 

 

Place can inside saucer with water. Add water up to the point the can remains stationary in the water. Never leave melting wax unattended.

 

009

 

Melting wax. Heat level – medium.
Do not leave cooking/melting wax unattended. (Keep away from children)
Once 011wax is melted, add candy thermometer to wax. Heat wax no more than 130 degrees. Once reach 130 degrees, turn off stove and remove can from pan, using mit or holder, etc..
(Can will be hot)

 

012

Now we’re going to be adding the flavor.
Put can with melted wax on scale and “tare”.
(Tare is putting scare back to zero)

I use a disposable Kraft stick
to blend flavor with the wax.

Adding flavor. For these “T” lites I used, Premium Nag Champa Oil. (For each015 ounce of wax, you’ll be adding .09375 oz. of premium oil).
.09375 x 2.4 oz = 0.225 oz premium oil.

Flavor, Kraft Stick and Thermometer. I use a candy thermometer.

Pour liquid wax into “T” lite cups. Wait about a minute, then add the wicks (time may vary).

Watch the wax in the cups. You want to place the wick inside before they have have the chance to solidify.

016

T” lites will solidify in about 8-15 minutes. Allow your “T” lite to cool completely (not less than 1 hour)
