How produce candle
Begin by measuring the desired amount of paraffin 54-56 for your candles. Use a scale to ensure accurate measurements. Melt the wax in a melting pot or a double boiler on low to medium heat. Be cautious not to overheat the wax to prevent it from becoming too hot or igniting.
Add fragrance and color (optional)
If you wish to add fragrance or color to your candles, this is the time to do it. Add a few drops of fragrance oil or liquid candle dye to the melted wax and stir gently until well mixed. Remember to follow the recommended guidelines for fragrance and dye concentrations to achieve the desired effect.
Attach the wick
While the wax is melting, prepare your candle molds or containers. Place a wick in the center of each mold or container, ensuring it is centered and straight. You can secure the wick in place by using a wick holder or by tying it around a pencil or chopstick placed horizontally across the container.
Pour the wax
Once the wax has reached the desired temperature (usually between 160 to 180 degrees Fahrenheit), carefully pour it into the prepared molds or containers. Take care to pour slowly and avoid air bubbles. Leave a small space at the top to allow for any potential shrinkage during the cooling process.
Cool and trim
Allow the candles to cool and solidify completely. This process can take several hours, depending on the size of the candles. Once the wax has hardened, trim the wick to a desired length, typically around ¼ to ½ inch.
If desired, you can add additional decorations or embellishments to your candles, such as ribbons, labels, or charms. These final touches can enhance the aesthetic appeal of your candles.
With paraffin 54-56 as your choice, you can create beautiful and long-lasting candles that provide a comforting ambiance and soothing scents to enrich any setting.
