Soy Strawberry Cheesecake Candle
12 x 4 oz tins
12 HTP1"-2" wick
60 ml vanilla
10 ml of strawberry and blueberry
5 ivory, red, and blue dye chips
3 lbs of millenium soy wax
Make this lovely Soy Candle
Small 4 oz tins make wonderful travel candles for gift giving. It never hurts to have a candle in your glove compartment at this time of year.
Using our NEW 1"-2" soy wicking (HTP 72, primed with High melt soy wax) and a dab of hot glue, center your wick in the 4 oz tins. Melt 1 lb of Millenium Container Soy Wax to 160F, add 1 chip of ivory dye and 20 ml of vanilla and pour into five tins to within 1/4" of the top. Let this set until the surface starts to skim over.
Trim the wick to 1/4" to make it easier to do the next step.
Add a 1/4 chip of red to the remaining wax and 10 ml of strawberry fragrance. Pour carefully on the vanilla surface and swirl gently with a skewer. Let the candle set.
Soy does not neet to be retopped. It is a "one-pour" wax.
This can also be done in lemon, blueberry or chocolate. Immediately after a soy candle is extinguished, the melt pool can be applied to your hands and makes a wonderful moisturizer!
