How to Make Gel Candles:
1. Glue your zinc wick to the bottom of the container. Keep the wick upright by clipping it with plastic clip at the top of the container.
2. Break the gel wax into small pieces and melt it using the double boiler method. (You can melt it over direct heat as well, but be careful as overheated wax will discolor).
3. Once wax has melted, add in color (liquid dye) and fragrance oils (the color of the oil might change the clarity of the wax). Stir until blended well.
*If your fragrance oil cannot blend well with the wax or causes cloudiness, then it isn’t suitable for gel candles.
4. Gently pour the wax into the container.
5. Allow it to cool and harden at room temperature and leave it to cure for 1-2 days.
*We suggest experimenting with a small batch to first before making bigger gel candles.
