Homemade Autumn Spice Soy Candles

Easily and inexpensively make your own Homemade Autumn Spice Soy Candles! These are great for gifts or to scent your own home during the fall and holiday season. These Homemade Autumn Spice Soy Candles are a fun DIY project that yields great results!
How’s this for a super cute, unique candle idea? The bonus is it is a soy candle, so no build up on the walls or ceiling. I absolutely adore soy candles. They are my go-to candle when buying, and now when making.
Place your candlewick in a teacup. (clear glass works great!)
Begin by heating the soy wax flakes on low heat right on your stove top. It is best to use a non stick pot to help avoid burning and sticking.

Continue to stir the soy candle flakes as they slowly melt. Be sure to keep the liquid moving so it does not stick or clump.

Add the spices and coloring - note that the color of the wax may darken, but that is fine and expected.
Remove the mixture from the stove and slowly (and carefully!) pour it into the teacup.

Store your Homemade Autumn Spice Soy Candles in a room that is cool to allow them time to harden.

After an hour, add the remaining spices.

Return your candle to the cool room to finish setting. It may take 4 hours until your candle is completely set.
Once the mixture has hardened you can snip the candlewick to shorten it.

    I've seen this question here also but there's no ingredients & how much.

    That would be great to have them.

    I'd love ti try this!
