Dried fruit is a great way to add natural fragrance to your soy candles. You can use any dried fruit you like, but we especially love using dried apricots, strawberries, and raspberries. Here’s how to do it!
Dried fruit can add a unique and natural touch to soy candles
Making soy candles is easier than ever! With the addition of dried fruit, soy candles can become a truly unique and natural touch to any home decor. Dried fruit can help create a soft scent that is unmistakable and will be sure to impress anyone who walks into your space. Experiment with different types of fruit and herbs to find what works best for your soy candle. Get creative with it – adding dried flowers or citrus peels together with the dried fruit can really express yourself, while still providing a beautiful fragrance. Don’t let soy candle making intimidate you; using dried fruits can make soy candles seem effortless to make and will leave everyone looking forward to your future creations!
The dried fruit will also help to absorb the fragrance of the candle
Dried fruit is the perfect accent for soy candles that will help revive it with a beautiful fragrant aroma. Incorporating dried fruit in soy candle-making can elevate the sensory experience by enhancing the scent, making it more powerful and enjoyable as it reaches every corner of your home. The powerful aromas will linger even after you’ve blown out the soy candle thanks to the absorbent properties of dried fruit. Now that you know how much of an impact dried fruit can have on soy candles, start experimenting and enjoy discovering a whole new way to make all kinds of unique scents!
Choose dried fruits that complement the fragrance of your candle
Making soy candles can be a great, creative way to add ambiance to your home. But if you really want to make an impression, don’t forget about picking complimentary dried fruits as part of your decor! Different varieties of dried fruit pair wonderfully with soy candles and can really enhance the experience when burning. Think oranges, lemons, mango slices, cherries – or even some figs and dates! Any combination that pleases your palate will help bring out the unique fragrance notes of your soy candle while spectacularly styling up any room you light it in. So take the time to choose your special blend; it’s worth it for the difference you’ll see and smell!
Be sure to cut the fruit into small pieces so that it doesn’t clog the wick
Making soy candles may seem intimidating at first, but don’t let that stop you from trying! To ensure your soy candle can burn cleanly and evenly, it’s important to make sure the fruit pieces that you add are cut into small enough pieces. Otherwise, they may clog up the wick or cause other issues. If in doubt, cut smaller rather than larger – this will help you get a better burn out of your soy candle. Now go forth and make beautiful soy candles that bring peace and harmony to any room!
Add the dried fruit to the melted wax and stir well before pouring into the mold
Making soy candles is a creative and empowering project you can do from the comfort of your own home. Start by melting wax to the desired temperature, then add any dried fruits for additional fragrance if desired. Once added, stir the wax and fruit together well before pouring it into a mold. You can make multiple candles in various shapes, sizes and colors to give as gifts or just enjoy yourself. Invest some time in soy candle making and you’ll be proud of the results!
Allow the candle to cool completely before trimming the wick and lighting
The soy candle that you have just finished crafting is a small masterpiece and treating it with the respect it deserves is paramount. Allow the soy wax to cool completely before trimming the wick, as introducing a flame too early will shift the liquid soy wax away from our design. When you allow the soy candle to cool properly and patiently, your soy candle will maintain its beautiful shape and ensure continued satisfaction of your creation! Trimming the wick once cooled, is also imperative. A correctly trimmed wick will not only create an even burn, but it will also prevent unnecessary smoke damage on surrounding walls or furniture. Investing in ensuring the proper care for your soy candles will bring about much greater useage and enjoyment.
