DIY soy tin candles with essential oil





1. **Gather Materials:**

- Soy wax flakes
- Wick
- Tin containers
- Essential oils of choice
- Double boiler or microwave-safe container
- Stirring utensil
- Thermometer

2. **Prepare the Wick:**
- Cut the wick to the desired length, leaving a bit extra to trim later.
- Secure the wick in the center of the tin using a dab of melted wax.

3. **Melt the Soy Wax:**
- Measure the appropriate amount of soy wax flakes based on the size of the tin.
- Melt the soy wax in a double boiler or a microwave-safe container. Use a thermometer to monitor the temperature.


4. **Add Essential Oils:**
- Once the wax is fully melted, remove it from heat.
- Allow the wax to cool slightly, then add the desired amount of essential oils. Stir gently to distribute the scent evenly.

5. **Pour Wax into Tins:**
- Carefully pour the scented wax into the prepared tins, leaving a small space at the top.

6. **Set the Wick:**
- Keep the wick centered as the wax solidifies. You can use a wick holder or simply hold the wick in place until the wax cools and sets.

7. **Trim the Wick:**
- Once the wax has completely solidified, trim the wick to your desired length, leaving about half an inch above the wax.

8. **Decorate and Personalize:**
- Consider adding decorative elements like dried flowers or herbs on top of the candle before the wax completely solidifies. Or add a little hotties to decorate your candle. Use something sharp to make a small hole. Then put it through the wick. 



9. **Curing Time:**
- Allow the candles to cure for at least 24 hours before burning to ensure optimal fragrance and burn time.

10. **Enjoy Your Homemade Tin Candle:**
- Your tin candle is now ready! Light it up and enjoy the soothing ambiance and fragrance of your custom soy wax candle.

Feel free to adjust the quantities and steps based on your preferences and the specific size of the tin containers you're using. Happy candle making!
