 This will make two candles.

NatureWax® C-3 Soy Flakes 400 grams
My Valentine Fragrance Oil 13 grams
Love Spell Fragrance Oil 13 grams
Forever Red Fragrance Oil 13 grams
Black or White Ripples Candle Vessel 2
Crackling Booster .04 Medium Wooden Wick with clips 2

 

  1. Using a scale, weigh 133 grams of NatureWax® C-3 Soy Flakes into a microwave safe glass container. Place your container in the microwave and melt in 1-minute bursts*. Stir the wax for 30 seconds between bursts. The wax should be fully melted and at a temperature of 160°F to 200°F. Do not heat the wax above 200°F. *Our test batch took 3 x 1-minute bursts and 1 x 30 seconds burst.

  2. Allow the wax to cool to 135°F - 145°F. Once the wax has cooled, add the fragrance oil, and stir for 1-minute. The maximum amount of fragrance for this wax – 10%.

  3. Carefully and evenly pour your melted wax into the candle vessel.

  4. Slide the wooden wicks into the metal wick clips. When the wax begins to cool and the bottom starts to turn opaque, place the wicks in your vessel and gently push down into the semi-solid wax to secure the wick. 

    For the middle layer, wipe out your microwave safe container. After the first layer has solidified, repeat steps 1 and 2 using NatureWax® C-3 Soy Flakes. When steps 1 and 2 are done for the second time, pour it into your vessel.

  5. For the final layer, wipe out your microwave safe container. After the second layer has solidified, repeat steps 1 and 2 using NatureWax® C-3 Soy Flakes. Once steps 1 and 2 are done for the third time, pour it into your vessel.

  6. When the wax has fully solidified use scissors or a wick trimmer, trim your wicks to 1/8”. Set your candle aside to let it cure. This allows the fragrance oil to disperse into the wax evenly to achieve the best scent throw. It’s recommended to allow the candle to cure for a week. If you can’t wait because of excitement, let your candle sit for 48 hours before burning.

  7. After your candle has finished curing, light the wick, and let it burn!
