Instructions

Romantic Orchid Candle Project

  • Skill Level: Beginner
  • Time: 2 hours
  • Yield: 4 candles

They are super easy to make too. Just mix Bewitched Orchid Fragrance Oil into soy wax, pour into blush ceramic jars, and let it set. You’re going to love the results. If you're new to making soy candles, read our How to Make Soy Wax Candles article for tips. 

You will need:

  • 4 Small Blush Ceramic Jars
  • 28 oz. Coconut Soy Wax Blend
  • 4 Cd-16 Wicks
  • 4 Wick Stickers
  • 2.2 oz. Bewitched Orchid Fragrance Oil*

*Original project used the now discontinued Blushing Orchid Fragrance Oil

Follow these steps:

1

Place a half-filled pot of water on the stove, bring it to a low simmer, and nest a pouring pitcher or other heat-safe container inside. Add 28 ounces of Coconut Soy Wax and let it melt. NOTE: Using 32 ounces of Golden Wax 464 fills each container to the top, but the lid will crush the wick. We used 28 ounces for this recipe so the lids fully close.

2

Weigh out 2.2 ounces of Bewitched Orchid Fragrance Oil into a glass container. Once the wax reaches 185° F, remove it from the heat and slowly stir in the fragrance for 1-2 minutes to fully incorporate. Set aside to cool.

3

Place wick stickers on the ends of the Cd-16 wicks and adhere firmly to the center bottom of the 4 ceramic jars.

4

Once the wax is at about 135° F, pour it slowly into the prepped jars. Secure the wicks with a clothespin (or other tool).

5

Wait 12-24 hours to allow the candles to fully cool. Trim the wick to 1/4" above the wax. Allow the candles to cure for 3-5 days so the fragrance completely bonds with the wax. Burn your candle until it reaches a full melt pool for best results.
