  • Round Glass Candle Jar
  • 14 oz. EcoSoya Advanced Soy Wax
  • 6 oz.White Beeswax
  • 1 oz.Blackberry Sage Cybilla Fragrance Oil
  • Cd-20 Wick
  • Glossy Silicone Square Tray Molds (2 molds)
  • Purple Wax Dye Block
  • Flower Template
  1. In a large heat safe container, melt 14 oz. of Advanced Ecosoya Wax and shavings of the Purple Wax Dye Block in the microwave using 30 second bursts. For this candle, the majority of the wax dye block was used to create a vibrant, rich purple color. If you prefer a lighter purple, use less colorant.[br}The color of your candle will lighten once it cools and hardens. To test the color, dip a cold spoon into the hot melted wax. The wax will soon cool and harden, and will demonstrate what color the candle will be. This technique is referred to as the “Frozen Spoon Trick,” and works great for lip products as well.
  2. Once you are happy with the color, add 1 oz. of the Blackberry Sage Cybilla Fragrance Oil and use a spoon to thoroughly combine.
  3. Place the wick in the center and use chopsticks, pencils or dowels to hold the wicks in place. Slowly and carefully pour the purple wax into the container. Set aside, and allow to fully cool and harden.
  4. While the candle cools, it’s time to make the flowers. Cut out the flower stencils from the Flower Template. Melt 6 oz. of white beeswax in a heat safe container using 1 minute bursts. Beeswax has a high melting point, and takes longer to melt than most waxes. Because of this, be very careful when removing the container from the microwave as it will be very hot!
  5. Split the wax in half, and color one container lightly with shavings of the Purple Wax Dye Block. Pour both containers of wax into two Glossy Silicone Square Tray Molds. If you do not have two molds, you can split this step into two; simply melt 3 oz. of white beeswax at a time, and only color one batch.
  6. Soon, the beeswax will begin to cool and harden. Once the beeswax can be touched with your finger and does not pull away, gently place the flower cut-outs on the wax. Using a chopstick or wood skewer, use the flower as a stencil and “draw” a flower into the wax. Move quickly as the beeswax hardens fast.
  7. Continue drawing both small and large flowers into the white and purple wax. You only need one small and one large flower for each candle, but you will be able to carve more than two flowers. Carve more for future candles, or save the wax to remelt and reuse later.
  8. Use a straw or the end of your carving tool to create a hole in the center of you flower. This is where the wick will be threaded, so ensure it is large enough for the wick to fit through. Set the trays of flowers aside to fully cool and harden before removing the flowers from the mold.
  9. Once the wax has fully cooled, gently press the bottom of the mold, around the flowers. The wax around the flowers will begin to break, releasing the flower shapes. Be very careful during this step, you don’t want to break the flowers! If this happens don’t worry =) Remelt and wax, pour and trace the flowers again.
  10. Melt a very small amount of beeswax in the microwave using 30 second bursts. Use a dropper or spoon to drop a small amount of wax near the wick.
  11. Gently place a large flower onto the candle and hot wax. The hot wax will adhere the flower to the candle.
  12. Place a small amount of hot wax on the large flower, and gently place a small flower on top. Be careful not to press too firmly, as this could crack the flowers. When ready to use, light the wick and enjoy!
