How to make Containers (using our container kit)
  1. Pre-wick your jars using the Wick Stickums on the bottom of the round metal wick tabs. Stick them down in the center of your jars and make sure they are secure. A hollowed out Bic pen works nicely for pushing down over the wick.
  2. Weigh your wax on a scale. Melt the wax in the pouring pot, set inside a pot of water on the stove (like a double boiler). NEVER directly on the burner!
  3. Once melted, add approx. 1-2 dye chips per pound of wax (depending on desired shade) and stir until dissolved.
  4. Next add approx. 1 oz. of scent per pound of wax, and stir well. Some fragrances blend easier than others, so some may require more stirring. (Vanilla based oils tend to have a more difficult time blending. If you run into a difficult one, try adding a bit of Vybar 260 and stir very well up until you pour)
  5. Check temperature with the thermometer. Once wax is approx. 160-165 degrees it is ready to pour.
  6. Pour from the pouring pitcher into your jars slowly and steadily. Pouring into pre-warmed jars can help prevent jump lines and wet spots. Keep wicks as straight and centered as possible.
  7. Once wax has set slightly on top, enough to hold the wick in place, it is safe to carefully move your jars into a box or an insulated plastic cooler. The slower the candles cool, the better. Give them ample time to completely set up before trimming the wick and putting the lids on the jars.
  8. It is best to allow your candles at least 1 week to cure before test burning for optimal fragrance throw. Always test burn your candles before selling, and make sure to include a caution label on each one!
