What’s the difference between our scented soy and gel candles? In this article, we’ll explain our primary candle sorts and differences so that you don’t get headaches while selecting one of our Candle Making Workshops in Singapore!
-Scented Candles: These are traditional candles where fragrance is added to create a pleasant smell in your home. The wax used for these candles is generally high quality and good for people who want to enjoy light aromas without overwhelming their senses. They also burn longer than most other candle varieties because of the higher melting point of the wax.
-Gel Candles: Gel candles use liquid paraffin which has been mixed with gel instead of oil or water. The melting point is a lot lower than scented candles, so they burn faster and release a bigger burst of fragrance. Due to the different burning properties of gel candles, they also tend to create larger flames which may pose a fire hazard if not placed well.
-Soy Candles: These are eco-friendly candles that are usually made from 100% soy oil. The wax is biodegradable and thus produces less carbon emission when burned. Soy candles tend to be healthier as they don’t produce plumes of black smoke like scented or gel candles, which means that your lungs won’t suffer from inhaling such fumes. With such a wide variety of candle types, we’re sure that there is a candle for everyone and every occasion. Just pick your favorite and get started on our Singapore Candle Making Workshops!

Scented candles are simply candles that have been treated with a fragrance. There are two main types of scenting methods: cold process and hot process. The first involves dipping the wick of a candle in scented oil, while the second involves submerging it in the wax during the cooling process. Scented candles provide a way for you to enjoy the relaxing and therapeutic effects of aromatherapy. They also create an inviting atmosphere that invites friends and family over for gatherings and entertainment. And, perhaps most importantly, they just smell really good!
Scented candles add such a pleasant touch to almost any occasion, whether it’s social or personal. They make great gifts for close friends and family on special occasions like Christmas and birthdays, but they also work well as giveaways at trade shows and sales events! Candles come in all shapes and sizes, colors, and textures; some even have special effects! You can even create a candle that looks just like a cupcake. The possibilities are truly endless! Before you purchase your scented candles, be sure to read the label carefully and make sure you select those made from soy rather than those produced from paraffin wax. Otherwise, they won’t burn as readily as those made with pure soybeans.
Candle-making tools and equipment needed
Candle-making tools and equipment needed: candle wicks, wax, thin metal rods for dipping candles into the hot liquid wax to create a thin coating of wax. You will also need containers to hold the melted wax as you work with it. A double-boiler or a crockpot may be used instead. Kitchen pots sold at department stores work fine as long as they do not have plastic handles. Candle Making Workshops in Singapore gives you all the basic details for making your own candle. Make sure your work area is well lit and set out where you can protect surfaces and prevent any hot wax from spilling onto them. You will be working with melted wax, so wear an apron to protect your clothes. Make sure the hair is tied back away from the face, arms, and hands in order to avoid getting hair caught into the hot wax and to avoid getting wax onto any clothing or skin. Do not make candles on a humid day, as the humidity will make the finished candle surface look dull. If you do need to work on something humid, be sure that everything is clean; if your tools are dirty the wax will not stay on as well as it should.
Handling the wax; Wax comes in many colors and scents, so make sure you read labels carefully. You can also use a little coloring to tint white wax a slight color but stay away from bright colors as they don’t show up well on light-colored candles. White candle wicks look very attractive on white or ivory-colored candles, but very plain in dark colors. Melt paraffin wax in a double-boiler or crock pot until it reaches about 150°F (do not overheat). Do not let the water boil away from the bottom of the pan or pot! Stand wick upright in a container with a metal rod pushing into the center of the wick. Pour melted wax into the container around the wick until about 1/2 to 3/4 full (if you use containers with high sides, you will only need to fill it half full). Be careful not to pour too much wax in at one time or it may overflow when the bubbles come up through the wax.
Allow candles to cool for about 2 hours (or until they set up), then trim wick with scissors or knife to about 1/4 inch above the surface of the wax. Use caution, as melted wax is hot! Cover any unused wax and store it in a clean, dry place. Clean-up: Allow containers to harden, then place in garbage. Do not try to clean them, as the wax will make a mess of any dishcloth or sponge. When you are ready to use the leftover wax, pour it back into its original container or another container with a tight-fitting lid. You can save leftover wicks by soaking them for 24 hours in a strong bleach solution. After soaking for 24 hours, remove and air dry them thoroughly.
You should never reuse commercial candle wax because it contains non-scented elements and dust and dirt particles that can harm a person’s respiratory system. If you wish to recycle leftover commercial candles by remelting the wax, make sure to do so outdoors with adequate ventilation. Melting commercial wax in a glass container is practically impossible, so don’t try to do it. You can recycle leftover wax and mold it into new candles when you use candle-making kits that come with ready-made molds.
If you are interested in starting to make your own candles, then this is the perfect place for you. You will need some basic supplies that can be found at any craft store or online retailer. Candle Making Workshops in Singapore is a fun activity and it’s also quite therapeutic!
