DIY Homemade Soy Wax Candle #PipingRock #Review

  I am a HUGE fan of Piping Rock. I have ordered from them multiple times in the past before ever reviewing them or anything. I simply wanted affordable essential oils, went on a hunt and discovered them and decided to give them a try.  Well I had the opportunity to try some of their products to make some homemade candles and I figured - why not?! This was my first time ever making my own candle and it was actually fun. I just need to practice a bit more to make them more pretty.

So here`s what you`ll need:

  Here`s how to make your candle:

  1.  Using your double boiler, bring the water to a boil. Once hot, pour in your wax. Amount you will need will vary on the size jar you plan on using.
  2. Once the wax has completely melted, remove from heat and mix in the fragrance oil. Again, the amount you want to add is up to you. It will smell strong while you`re pouring it, but if you want to smell it while it`s burning I recommend using quite a bit.
    • Please note, if you leave the fragrance oil on the heat it will end up evaporating so do these steps quickly. Place the wick into the jar if you haven`t done so already.
    • Place the wick in the jar if you haven`t already.
  3. After mixing the fragrance oil in with the wax, IMMEDIATELY pour the wax into the jar.
  4. Allow time to turn solid then enjoy your candle!
    • Because of the wax being a liquid for a while, I found using a knife sitting across my jar to help support the wick kept it into place so it wouldn`t fall over. Just let the wick lean on it. Otherwise my wick kept wanting to fall over.
    • Don`t forget to trim your wick to an appropriate size if necessary!

  This is simple to do and only take several minutes - an hour total if you include cooling off time. I found it satisfying to make the candle myself and finally make use of some of the baby food jars I kept around for crafts. It`s about time I use them for something! Any how, the fragrances smelled amazing! I used the gardenia oil for my candles and then I used the Honeysuckle in my wax/fragrance warmer (diluted with some water) to help freshen up the scent in the house. AMAZING! My house actually smells like you`re walking past one of those mini candle shops in the mall. I found Piping Rocks fragrance oils to be of nice quality as well as their candle wax. Best of all, they`re all affordable! Feel free to share your candle making recipe in a comment below!
