Making Candle Votives

Making candle votives with soy is a faster pace than making candles with regular soy wax. The melting temperature is higher, and so is the pouring temperature.

It eliminates the wait for the cooling down time for the wax, which for regular candles is about 10 minutes per pound of wax.

It’s a little more exciting and a little less relaxing.

Since even natural soy votives do pour at a higher temperature, they are hot. They burn hot, so you should not touch the melted wax when the candle is burning.

Making Candle Votives

Unlike regular soy wax candle making, making votives is not recommended for children.
