Soy Wax: White Beeswax 10:1 (container candle) 5:1 (wax or ordinary candle)
Coconut wax: white beeswax 5:1 (coconut wax is exceptionally soft, the melting point is also shallow 45 degrees, so be sure to do it in the container)
Jelly wax: It must be in the container; there is no need to add other polish; the melting point is relatively high, and the condensation is speedy, but the condensation is very long. Transparent.
Container selection: glass, iron box, candle mold
Essential oils: Using a single essential oil or a compound oil that has been blended is recommended. Personally, the emotional combination is perfect. In addition, I compared the critical oils in aromatherapy and Dotray’s essential oils on the market. I found that the vital oils of aromatherapy are particularly fragrant. There are a lot of additions to it. The taste is unnatural as long as a small amount is a total of fragrance. Dotray’s essential oils taste natural, but they are not so fragrant. It is recommended to add more, especially woody essential oils, such as firs, which must be added to be helpful.
Take the strawberry cup as an example:
1. I used a thick glass with a diameter of 6cm. If there is no layered color below, you can also use the iron box directly, which is cheaper and better.
2. Use soy wax, add one-tenth to one-fifth of white beeswax, and open it in a wax pot.
Use a heated induction cooker, or heat it on the gas stove (be sure to separate the water or paste it). Soy wax, I grab it; everyone takes a little more because it still has to be strawberries. Everyone can pour it into the final container and try it out.
3, you can add color, like the strawberry inside me, after completely melting. After melting, I was divided into two containers; some were added with practical red pigments, such as strawberries, and some were not counted. When you wait 50-60 degrees, you can add essential oils when you feel it is not very hot.
4, the ratio of essential oils is 1% to 5%; it is recommended that Dotray’s essential oils be at least 3% (heart is bleeding). I use peace and lavender.
How is this calculated? For example, my 6cm cylindrical cup is ready to add 6cm high wax. That is πr square h, about 170 cubic centimeters, 170ml. So, 3% of the essential oil is 5ml.
5, the wick is fixed in the container, such as chopsticks set Dafa
Or this kind of base can be glued with glue
Pour the wax into the container and wait…
Pour the added color into the strawberry mold and wait…
When the solidification is completed, the strawberries are taken out, and the bottom is slightly baked with a lighter and placed in a candle cup. Cut the wick. Usually, 1cm is on the line; some people leave 3cm for a label or something.
Finally, the friendship reminds us that the lit candle should be extinguished and never blown. Cover it with a lid, or there will be a lot of smoke~
