We had so much fun making soy candles. I found all the supplies locally at Portland Homestead Supply Co. in Sellwood. I was so happy to finally make it over there. They have supplies for all kinds of things. I actually sort of yelled, "oh my god, you have bulk shea butter!" but then tried to compose myself. I will be back. They also had a wonderful and huge selection of Weck jars, which are very close to my heart, so that was thrilling. Online, Candle Science has soy candle supplies and a wonderful learning section with very helpful tutorials.
These were so easy, the only thing I would do different is add twice as much essential oil. These Weck jars held about 1 cup of melted wax, and to that we added 20 drops of oil, which didn't seem like quite enough.
Onto hand dipped candles now.
