craft corner: home made soy candles


Soy candles are great because they burn for a long time, and pretty cleanly.  These are very simple to make! Lesson I learned: I should buy/use small wicks for such narrow candles.

Here’s a general guide for how to make candles- You can ignore the intense branding in the instructions.  However, they do make some really lovely scents- my favorite is Egyptian Amber.

And here is the really great starter kit I ordered from Amazon (In addition to a 5-pound bag of soy wax chips)
