An Introduction to Making Palm Wax Candles

by Chandler 17. August 2012 19:47

These days, a great deal of focus for natural candles is put on Soy wax, but there are other options for making great natural wax candles. If you want to create a candle with a unique pattern, where no 2 candles look the same, we would recommend trying Palm wax.

While this is an introduction to Palm, think of all the other projects you can do: layered unique shapes, different aromatherapy scents, the possibilities are endless! In today's market we feel it is important to really explore all opportunities available.

Ingredients you'll need:

 

Instructions

STEP 1

Melt Palm Wax in a pot. Note: the hotter you make the wax, the more the wax will create a snowflake look on the candle. Do not exceed 300°F (150°C).

STEP 2

Add some shavings of color blocks and 4% to 5% of fragrance.

STEP 3

Using the rubber plug and wick bar, prepare your aluminum mold for pouring.

STEP 4

Before pouring wax, it is suggested to heat the mold with a heat gun or a heat lamp to maximize the crystalizing effect of the Palm Wax.

STEP 5

Pour liquid Palm Wax into the mold and let cool. By slowing the cooling rate of your poured candles, you can create fantastic crystal effects in your Palm Wax candles.

STEP 6

Sometimes Palm Wax requires a second pour. You will know it is necessary if a thin layer of wax forms over your candle when cooled. Simply poke a hole in this layer and perform your second pour.

 

All natural and completely unique, palm wax candles are sure to capture attention and add an eclectic feel to any atmosphere!
