Why Make Your Own Candles?
Have you ever thought of making your own candles and would like to know more about the craft? Then read on.
At Wickpy, we’re candle obsessed and are happy to fire up the double boiler to make our own.
It gives us the type of candles we want - plant based, petroleum free, and scented naturally with blends of pure essential oils.
That’s why we make candles differently.
With plant-based soy candles scented with pure essential oils we avoid the harsh chemicals found in petroleum based candles and enjoy the scent without upset eyes, throat or nose!
Making your own candles gives peace of mind
The same concern for what's inside your food can also be applied to your candles.
By making your own candles you get to know exactly what's inside your candle.
When you choose to scent your candles with pure essential oils, you make natural candles with added aromatherapy value.
If you can afford ethically-sourced essential oils, great, you’ll enjoy higher quality scents where the social and environmental outcomes for growers and their communities are protected.
Burning candles regularly can be an expensive pursuit.
For less than the price of a luxury candle, you can buy a Soy Candle Making Kit with everything you need to make two 40 hr candles with natural ingredients and real fragrances that your body and mind will appreciate.
And when you spoil yourself at the candle store, always ask for plant-based waxes and natural fragrances. Your body and mind will thank you.
Healthier & supportive
Switching paraffin for soy wax and synthetic fragrances for pure essential oils creates a big change in candle quality.
With soy candles scented with pure essential oils you can expect natural uplift, relaxation and focus - the same physical, emotional and spiritual support we enjoy from essential oils elsewhere.
It needs little explaining how rewarding it is to make anything yourself.
The feelings of achievement and satisfaction are real!
The psychological benefits of crafting are include improvements to wellbeing, reductions in anxiety and creating community.
Natural candle-making is a fun experience, which you'll find relaxing and inspiring.
It's also a bonding social experience especially when we share about our lives and goals when making candles.
Purpose & discovery
At Wickpy, we like to give our candle a purpose that aligns with our intentions and goals.
We can make a candle that helps us to relax and invites self-care.
Or we can make a candle that helps us to improve our focus and concentration.
Candle-making usually begins with a little measuring and preparing.
With heat under the ingredients and the wax beginning to melt, the real fun begins.
As a hobby to consider, candle-making can be so much fun.
Our DIY kits offer a great way to get started in soy candle-making with essential oils.
If you to take the plunge, we suggest seeking out natural waxes from sustainable sources and scenting your candles with pure essential oils.
At Wickpy, we love candles and candle-making and we think you will too, but you'll never know till you try.
Stay curious dear human & happy candle-making!
