soy wax - container blend
cotton cord wick - 3" longer than the height of the jar
metal wick base
Large glass measuring cup
Determine the amount of wax needed: Fill the glass container with water. Pour the water from the container into a measuring cup and make a note of the amount. 1 pound of melted soy wax will make 2 ¼ cups of liquid wax. Dry your glass container.
Attach the metal wick base to one end of the wick by following the instructions on the package. Tie the other end of the wick in the center of a pencil and balance the pencil across the opening of the glass jar. This will keep you wick straight during the pour and cooling stages.
Place the thermometer into the wax and check the temperature. Stir wax as needed. Heat wax to 160 degrees. (NEVER HEAT ABOVE 165 DEGREES)
