The pencil will secure the wick in place as you pour the melted wax. As soon as the wicks of every container are prepared, one can now start to melt the wax.

For an instance, if you need to fill 3 containers the pour 6 cups of wax flakes. Stir slowly if your are using a broiler until no lumps will be seen. Quickly add several drops of that scented oil that you preferred just before removing it from the stove. When you are using a microwave, add the drops as soon as you take it out.

You can use any kind of scent as long as it is in oil form, citronella, vanilla, lavender and chamomile are the top favorites. Keep in mind not to take too long in doing this, you do not want you wax to dry on your boiler. Pour down the melted wax into the jar with pencil in place so the wick will not be carried away by the wax.

Leave it be for a few hours and as the wax begins to harden, you can now trim the wick. Do not in any circumstances trim the wick or move it, if the wax has not yet hardened. More so, trim the wick half and inch or a quarter of it, be careful not to trim it too low.

It is indeed easy to learn how to make soy candles in mason jars. Enjoy every moment of it, pick up your most favorite scent, give it as a gift or start earning from it.
