Handmade Beauty Box- June 2015- Soy Candles

After a long wait I finally got the Handmade Beauty Box tutorial I hoped for! I’ve never made a container candles but I’ve always wanted to! I was too nervous to try making candles so I settled on the easier wax tarts for my business. Now that I’ve made hundreds of wax tarts I’m confident in using soy wax and ready to start a tougher project! The 2 scent options that came with this box are Orange Blossom and Vanilla Bean. This isn’t the same vanilla so the one in my shop! It’s more like a sugary vanilla frosting scent. Orange blossom is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G though! I can’t get enough of it!

This is the picture I took after I poured the wax for my first candles! I had to make orange blossom first! 😀

I made the other 2 with the Vanilla Bean scent. It’s the same process as the other candles since no colorants were in the kit. Unfortunately I noticed after pouring the second set that my Orange Blossom candle tins leaked!

I poured the candles are about 127 degrees so maybe that was too hot? No idea but luckily it wasn’t a huge spill! Check out my video on YouTube!
