Basic Guidelines:

  • Heat wax to 185° - 195°
  • Add dye if desired and mix thoroughly
  • Add candle fragrance if desired and mix thoroughly
  • Pouring temperatures should typically be around 160° to 180°, though experimentation is recommended to determine optimal pouring temperature
  • Allow candles to cool as slow as possible to achieve good jar adhesion and create a smooth finish
  • Wait at least 24 hours before burning
  • Wick testing is recommended to achieve optimal burning characteristics and will vary with different combinations of wax, fragrance, dye, and container size
