DIY Blueberry Muffin Soy Candle

DIY Soy Candle

I’ve wanted to make a soy candle for quite a while. This weekend I picked up some soy that can be microwaved (in case this doesn’t go as planned) and some blueberry muffin scent. I’m pretty excited about this Make Something Mondays 🙂

Step 1:

Heat up your water. A little less than half of your pot should have water in it. It doesn’t have to boil but it should be close to.

After about 10 mins it will start to melt.

When the wax is fully melted take it out of the pot. You want the wax to cool to 125 degrees.

When it gets to that point you can add in whatever scent you want. Make sure you stir it well.

Step 6:

Put a pencil or utensil over the top of the jar and wrap your wick around it so that it stays put.

Let it dry.

    • Thanks, I appreciate that! I try. I want people to actually make them, or think about it at least 🙂

  1. THIS IS SO AWESOME. I’ve been wanting this soy candle from Hobby Lobby forever, but now I’m going to try to make a go at making my own. Do you add food coloring if you want a colored candle?

    • Yep, you can add food coloring. put that in and stir it before the scent and let it settle for a few mins. Let me know how it goes!
