When you begin, you need to make sure that you have the best mold for your candles, and that you’ve found a mold that you want for your candles. Pillar molds or more basic shapes are good to start with, so you aren’t starting with something too complicated.
Start by choosing a good mold for your candles. It is best to start out with something simple. Pillar molds or just your basic shapes work well.
Next you will need to melt the wax. A double boiler is great for this. Be sure to use caution as the wax gets very hot and will burn your skin. Make sure and wait for the wax to cool before trying to clean up.
When the wax has entirely cooled, you can remove the mold. Be sure to let it cool completely, overnight if you can. You will have problems if you try and remove it too soon.
Finally, you pour it into the mold and let it cool. Now you have created your own scented candle! It is possible to learn how to make scented candles! Keep making more and experiment with different waxes, scents and colors. You will be pumping out beautiful, homemade scented candles in no time!
