Soy candles are relatively easy to make requiring few ingredients with an easy clean up calling for items such as a melting pot, soy wax flakes, candle containers, wicks and essential oils for creating your own scents. Picking your votive containers offers makers a ton of choice from Mason jars to tins and thrifted ceramic pots.
