  • Candles With Dried Botanicals

    Is it possible to make soy double molded candles. Is it safe to use dried apples leaves etc in candle making?

    thanks

    Hi Nat

    When you say double moulded do you mean like hurricane candles?

    If that's the case then it would be hard to see the botanicals as soy wax is opaque. You would get a far better result from using paraffin wax as this is translucent.

      Hi Ruby

      Yes, they are the type of candles meant. I thought it might be better with paraffin wax, but i'm trying to be eco-friendly and want to use only soy wax.

      Maybe i'll try and see what happens. Don't hold out much hope.

      Many thanks

      Nat

        I know what you mean. I would love to use Soy wax for everything, so good luck, but I know sometimes it's just not possible.
