So you've conquered some fun easy fall recipes like this fall scented foaming hand soap or this pumpkin spice room spray and you're ready for more of a challenge?

Maybe you thinking making your own scented soy candles is just too hard?

I think you are going to be surprised at just how easy it is to make homemade soy candles, there are just a few questions that need answered.

1. What container will you make your candle in?

One of my favorite containers for homemade candles are mason jars.

Can mason jars hold candles?? Absolutely!

I am using a small 4 oz mason jar for this recipe, like these ones.

But there are a lot of cute options on amazon.

2. Where to buy wax for candle making?

For this recipe, we are making homemade soy candles, but there are other wax options including beeswax. Click here for more info on choosing wax for your candle.

Since we are using jars and not making pillar candles, soy wax is perfect.

I have chosen to use soy wax flakes that I purchased on Amazon. You can swap the soy wax flakes and use beeswax if you have that on hand. 

3. Where to buy candle scent oil?

I am assuming you want to make your own scented candle because you've read that synthetic candles and fragrances are dangerous. The side effects can range from allergies to asthma and you don't want your family breathing in these chemicals.

Maybe you're wanting to make homemade soy candles because you want an option that is safer for your family?

That's why we will be using essential oils for our candle making. As long as you know your essential oils are pure, essential oil candles are a great way to scent your home safely.

Here's a quick video I recorded sharing the essential oils I use…

Synthetic candle scent oil is stronger than essential oils, but when you research the ingredients in the scents, it's probably best to avoid them.

4. Where do I buy candle wicks?

There are multiple candle wick options depending on what you're looking for. I just used a simple candle wick like this one

But there a quite a few other candle wick options like these: 

Wooden Candle Wicks

Organic Hemp Candle Wicks 

Organic Hemp Roll 

Amazon also has this fun Homemade Soy Candle Kit that comes with soy flakes and your wicks.
