DIY Scented Soy Wax Candles

    Have you ever wanted to make your own scented soy wax candles? WELL NOW YOU CAN! I've had a deep, deep obsession with Voluspa candles for the past few years and it drove me to create my own limited edition soy wax candles for the holidays. I had a lot of fun deciding on the scents, colours, and branding and hope you do too!
    OUTFIT:
    Velvet Set: bit.ly/2BeNggT
    Retro Glasses: bit.ly/2B4yAjF
    She In:bit.ly/2nGEzZn

    The only tips I would like to add is:
    1. Buy extra wax flakes - I had about 8 candle jars left when I ran out of wax, so my revised quantity for the soy wax flakes would be 19lbs instead of 16.
    2. Invest in scent - I should have bought smaller 1oz quantities of a variety of scents from a variety of places to test and see what I liked before committing
    Please let me know if you have any questions in the comments below. I may not be an expert, but I have 40 hand poured candles to my name ;)

As an owner of a 6 figure candle business, I was so relieved at the beginning when you explained how much fragrance to use, and what type of wick to use but, both your wax and fragrance should be measured by weight, not using a table spoon.

You said that 2.5 lbs = 3 8oz candles but you made way more than that.. did you have extra so you made more? Everywhere else say the formula is 1 pound of wax = 5 cups which makes 3 8oz candles. Thats why im asking :) Great video though

Nice one 😊. I watched a few candle making videos today because I would love to create and use/sell soy candles as it goes well with my yoga business. Your video is very informative. I took some screenshots in case I need them as a startup guide so thanks 🙂. I love candles and aromatherapy. I want lidded candles because I'm always spilling wax all over my yoga blocks after classes! 😋 I thought lidded candles may be a new idea but not so much lol. Hoping to sell them online in the future also. Have you had much luck with that? 🙂

its a combo of things that can happen, the wax, outside temp and room temp, any strong breeze in the room. But with the soy wax, most of the wax out on the suppliers is a blended wax with other veggie oils and can have a higher melt point/ cool point to the soy

Artificial fragrance is very bad for your health - you should only use pure essential oils in candles

bryan skerry
bryan skerry

and certain essential oils are also bad for your health when you burn them, Citrus can give off toxic vapours with heat, Lavender is bad for the felines airways, certain sage oils are a health risk for expecting mothers, not to mention that essential oils don't mix in well with the soy wax and could be a fire hazard when the candles sweat.

TheStyleCat  Cheers I'm going to make a few today to test it out before I host my special needs "pouring party" next Saturday. I'm in Peterborough and tried to order wax/scents from the same place you do but they were out of stock on a lot of things including the wax. Found another place in Southwest Ontario and also found 8 oz mason jars at Canadian Tire on sale. Considering all the money goes to help the special needs do you think $15 is a fair price?

Hi!! I love your style! loved your video- I am getting into making my own candles to share as gifts for friends and family. How did they smell? Was it a strong smell? Would you have added more fragrance? less? Just curious on the smell. Thank you for sharing!

Hi Darlene! I think it's tough to make a blanket statement on fragrances... it really depends on who and where you're sourcing them from. I love heavily scented candles like the ones from Volupsa, but mine had a more faint smell. I don't know if I would recommend adding more fragrance because that might mess with the ratios.
