Our recommended wick for Soy Wax is the HTP range, because these wicks have been specially made for such waxes. The HTP wick in made out of all natural fibres and they contain no lead or other harmful metals.
They are easy to use and require no extra work other than a trim before burning. Let no wick go to waste by re-tabbing your offcuts and using them for tealight of votive wicks.
An excellent, no fuss way to secure a wick to the bottom of a container. These are 15mm in diameter

Setting up the glassware
Make sure your glassware is completely clean and dry in preparation for candle making. Any residues of wax or water can affect the end product result. Setting up the glassware: Place a round wick stickum on the end of the wick, then press down firmly to secure the wick in the centre on the inside bottom of the glass.
Next, centre the top of the wick using the wick holder and pull gently to straighten the wick, securing it in place with the wooden peg.
Melting and pouring the wax
We recommend the double boiler method to melt the wax.
Use one block of soy wax and ensure that the wax reaches a temperature of approximately 75C using the mercury thermometer
Alternatively, use a microwave and microwave safe container (not included) to melt the wax).
Once molten, pour the wax into the 1 litre wax pouring jug.
Mixing and pouring the fragrance
Choose one of the fragrance oils, pour it into the molten wax and stir thoroughly using the bamboo stick. Once well mixed, slowly pour the combined wax and fragrance into the medium glasses your prepared earlier.
Be sure to leave approximately 1cm from the top of the glass rim. Now let your candle cool down for a couple of hours.
Finishing the candle
Once completely set, remove the wick holder and peg, and then trim the wick to approximately 1cm above the wax.
Please leave your candle to set and harden overnight so it becomes completely solidified.
If you just can’t wait, though, it’s possible to burn these partially set candles for instant enjoyment
Congratulations! Your first homemade soy candles are now ready to burn!
