Crackling Coffee Bean Soy Candles


 Crackling Coffee Bean Soy Candles

Do you love the aroma of coffee beans too?

I’ll admit I am a tea drinker. Chai tea, black tea, green tea, jasmine tea… I enjoy waking up to a hot cup of tea, not coffee. I’ve never liked the bitter taste of coffee, yet I am drawn to its fragrance. If I was single in and my early twenties again – I think I would live in a loft above a coffee house.

How about you?

Crackling Coffee Bean Soy Candles


Supply List for Crackling Coffee Bean Soy Candles:

4 wood wicks and clips

1-ounce coffee bean fragrance oil, or homemade coffee infused oil

4 glue dots

1 lb soy wax flakes

4  4-ounce glass jars


Instructions to make Crackling Coffee Bean Soy Candles:

Note: For a natural chemical free alternative to fragrance oil, make coffee infused oil. You can find it the instructions for my Coffee Infused Tightening Eye Cream.

Using glue dots adhere to wood wick clips to the center base of each jar. Insert wood wicks and cut wicks to just meet the top of the jar, set aside.

Fill a large saucepan with about 2 inches of water and place it on the stove to heat. Place soy wax flakes in a metal candle pouring pitcher and set inside the large saucepan. Heat until melted, whisking often using the double broiler method. Remove from heat immediately to avoid wax becoming too hot. Let the wax cool to 120°F to 125°F before pouring in fragrance or infused oil. Stir well to combine.

Carefully pour the scented soy wax into prepared mason jars. Let cool 30 minutes to 1 hour or until the wax is hard and white. Place lids and jars and close.

Note: Always burn soy candles long enough for the wax to melt across the container before blowing out the flame. This will avoid a tunnel forming in the wax and lowering the life of the candle. This recipe yields four, 4-ounce candles.
