* These measurements are based on tests carried out in the laboratory using vegetable waxes free of fragrances and / or colors and are to be considered as simple suggestions. Testing is the only way to perfectly match wicks and waxes. In case of use of fragrances and/or stearin it is recommended to increase the wick size by one measure.

METHOD OF USE

RECOMMENDED MELTING TEMPERATURE: 75 °C

ADD CANDLE DYES AT: 70-75 °C

ADD FRAGRANCE OILS AT: 60-65 °C

Step 1: Melt the wax - The wax should be heated to a temperature of about 75 °C. Do not melt the wax at a temperature above 90 °C. In case of exposure to too high temperatures for prolonged times the wax will tend to discolour. Mix slowly with a spatula (try not to incorporate air into the wax). Avoid using tools that contain copper and zinc as they may cause a partial discoloration of the wax. Choose digital thermometer.

Step 2: Add colors or fragrances - Once the wax has melted completely, add colors and / or fragrances at 70-75 °C . Always stir the mixture to ensure complete absorption. Add fragrance oils at 65  °C. Mix thoroughly and make sure that the fragrance oil dissolves completely. If the fragrance forms lumps, heat the mixture once again. Recommended percentage of fragrance oil: 6-8%. Recommended percentage of color: 0.4%. 

Step 3: Prepare the mold and pour the wax – For a perfect result, the mold should be heated to 50 °C. We also recommend placing it onto a warm surface far from cold. Make sure the mold is perfectly clean. Insert the wick of your choice and pour in the wax slowly. Fix the wick and leave the candle to cool.

Step 4:  Cooling and extraction – Let the candle cool in a room with a stable temperature (ideally: 25 °C). To extract easily the candle from the mold (if rigid materials are used), it is possible to use a release agent or water with some neutral soap. Let the candle cool until its complete solidification. Let it stand for at least 48 hours before lightening.

N.B. If poured too hot, the wax could create frosting or holes that would damage the surface of the candle. Should there be any difficulty in removing the candle from the mold, it is possible to facilitate the extraction by placing the still full mold in a fridge for some hours (it can be placed into the fridge only 24 hours after the creation of the candle, otherwise the thermal shock will ruin the final result).
