Know About Martini Candle Making Supplies

The star of this DIY project is the Martini Glass. These glasses are usually fire resistant and are safe to use for candle making. We also use clean-burning soy wax flakes in this recipe to ensure that this candle is 100% safe for you and your family. Read on to know more about the supplies for this project.

  • Soy Wax Flakes: Soy wax is a sustainable natural resource. Soy wax is biodegradable and can be cleaned with just water and soap. In addition, soy candles burn slower and longer than paraffin candles because soy wax has a lower melting point than paraffin wax.
  • Pre-waxed Candle Wick: Wax Coated Candle Wicks may be used to manufacture a number of different types of candles. These cotton candle wicks are pre-waxed and emit very little smoke, making them perfect for household use. They're also constructed in such a way that they burn for longer, don't curl, and don't leave cotton ashes behind.
  • Candle Dye: Candle dye is a synthetic chemical that is made specifically for use in candle wax. Candle dye is available in a variety of forms, including liquid, powdered, and block. Block and powdered dye are best for candle making, whereas liquids are wonderful for combining colors and creating high color saturation.
  • Martini Glass: The V-shaped, conical bowl of this stemmed cocktail glass is what sets it apart. The Martini glass is most known for its namesake beverage, the Martini, but it may be used to serve any cocktail. Or, in our case, be used for a candle.
  • Lavender Essential Oil: Lavender is an anti-anxiety herb. Headaches can be less severe and occur less frequently when lavender-scented candles are used.
