DIY Soy Wax Candles - scented with essential oils

Wear goggles or glasses
Wax burns, even though we suggest not getting your wax hotter than 185*F it can still burn. For minor burns run affected area under cold water. 

1 Lb soy wax
1 oz essential oils - we used lemon and lavender!
2-3 candle holders - we used 2 candle holders that had burned out their wax and candles, and one tin can!
Double boiler
Oven at 185*F

Heat in double boiler wax until 180*F, add essential oils. When your wax is almost all melted, place your candle holders in a preheated oven for 5 minutes. You can pour the wax at 180-160*F. Let your candle cure for at least 72 hours to a week before burning!

We used small containers, so we used a wick that was for 2.5"-3.5" diameter. You can find it here: is a great place to get your supplies. Not even affiliated just really like their store.
