Creating your own soy candles is not only a fun DIY project but also a sustainable and eco-friendly way to enjoy the ambiance of candlelight. Here's how you can make your own soy candles:


  • Soy wax flakes
  • Candle wicks
  • Glass jars
  • Double boiler
  • Spoon
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Thermometer
  • Fragrance oil (optional)


  1. Place soy wax flakes in the top of a double boiler.
  2. Fill the bottom of the double boiler with water and heat over medium heat.
  3. Stir the soy wax flakes continuously until they are completely melted.
  4. Remove the melted wax from the heat and stir in the fragrance oil if desired.
  5. Cut the candle wicks to the desired length and tie a small knot at the bottom of each wick.
  6. Dip the wick in the melted wax and then place it in the center of the glass jar.
  7. Use a pencil to hold the wick in place and keep it centered.
  8. Carefully pour the melted wax into the glass jar, taking care not to splash any on the sides.
  9. Allow the wax to cool completely and solidify before trimming the wick to the desired length.
  10. Once trimmed, your homemade soy candle is ready to light and enjoy!

By making your own soy candles, you can experience the benefits of clean-burning candles while also reducing your environmental footprint. Enjoy the soothing glow and delightful fragrance of your homemade soy candles with peace of mind, knowing you've chosen a sustainable and natural option.
