This easy, step-by-step instruction manual is for anyone wanting to learn how to make soy container candles for profit.

Once you have a solid place to start and feel grounded you’ll be at a better place to grow your own business as you see fit. Warning: this is a detailed guide! (Painfully detailed some might argue)Within these pages I promise to give you all the down and dirty in this business as I know it. Details on supplies, suppliers, trouble-shooting, learning, and even a little research where applicable. This product-based guide is perfect for those considering candle making as a small business or program fundraiser. I give you specific information to go forward immediately with your own project and evaluate for yourself if this craft is a viable place for your business or fundraiser. I share my mistakes so you can jump ahead to the profit-making in your own venture. Seriously, I can’t even believe the dumb mistakes I’ve made. Fortunately I don’t really believe in dumb mistakes - I believe in learning opportunities at every turn in the road. Let my mistakes give you a solid path to navigate so you can focus on the direction you intend for your own business. You’ll find links to specific supplies and suppliers I currently use in my own business as well as specific recipes and step-by-step instructions I use to create profitable, quality, all-natural, sellable products. I’ll even tell you the exact wax I use, the specific amount of fragrance oils I use, and what containers have been the most successful and profitable in our business. I include a trouble-shooting section for specific problems commonly experienced in soy candle making and offer specific, tested solutions to help get your project and learning on the right track to success. Want to learn about the adhesion of wax to glass containers? It’s in here. Want to avoid the dreaded sinkholes in your candles? That’s in here, too! I include specific links to suppliers as well as links for additional learning for those interested and a small manufacturing business perspective that I employ every day in my own business. Want to know why I chose the soy wax we currently use in our business? In this guide I tell you what I like about it and about the helpful chemists at the wax manufacturer that helped me learn to use it correctly. Are you interested in the hand-made makers movement? This book will help. I want to be part of your success and invite you to contact me with your projects and questions. I invite you to be part of making this a success by contributing to future updates, too! Hand-made, small, mom & pop manufacturing in the United States is alive and well and I’d love to hear how this book contributed to your own success. If I have succeeded, I believe you will, too. I really do believe that the more we share, the more we all will succeed. These "secrets" aren't mine to hoard and leave you struggling on you own to figure out. These "secrets" are just information nuggets I have gathered through trial, error, research, and learning in my own business and I'd be thrilled to know I helped someone else over a hurdle. I know your struggle as a small business owner. I know you don't have access to a research and development department to get your product-based business up and running. (At least I didn't!) I really do want to see small manufacturing businesses grow and thrive, so here's an effort to see that happen. I hope this helps and I'd be thrilled to hear back from you on your successes!

As a result of further testing, author Susan Miller Cavitch and Storey Publishing strongly recommend that you do not try this variation. Adding honey when you are combining the sodium hydroxide and water may result in a stronger reaction with more intense heat. The mixture may bubble up quickly and come out of the pot, posing a potential hazard.

Scientific Soapmaking: The Chemistry of the Cold Process Lowest new price: $22.16

List price: $29.95
Author: Kevin M. Dunn
Brand: Dunn Kevin M

Until now, there were just two kinds of books on soapmaking. Books for the commodity soap industry emphasized the economical production of soap by the ton and were written for those with a background in chemistry and chemical engineering. Books for the emerging craft industry emphasized the production of high-quality soap by the pound and were aimed at those familiar with the format of cookbooks. Makers of handcrafted soap often wish they had paid more attention in chemistry class so that the information of the commodity soap books would be accessible to them. Scientific Soapmaking answers that call by bridging the gap between the technical and craft literatures. It explains the chemistry of fats, oils, and soaps, and it teaches sophisticated analytical techniques that can be carried out using equipment and materials familiar to makers of handcrafted soap. Presented in a college textbook format, Scientific Soapmaking guides students and individual soapmakers alike to formulate questions about soap and design experiments to answer those questions scientifically.

Soapmaking the Natural Way: 45 Melt-and-Pour Recipes Using Herbs, Flowers & Essential Oils

Soapmaking the Natural Way: 45 Melt-and-Pour Recipes Using Herbs, Flowers & Essential Oils Lowest new price: $7.39
Lowest used price: $1.96
List price: $14.95
Author: Rebecca Ittner
Brand: Sterling Publishing

The title begs the question, If soap, like the famed 99.44 percent pure Ivory, isn't natural, then what is? Ittner clarifies the answer in her introductory chapter, explaining that she intended to "avoid all animal and petroleum-based products, syntheticcolorants and fragrances." That said, the rest is amazingly easy. Take run-of-the-mill kitchen equipment such as measuring spoons and double boilers, mix, then heat in the stove or microwave; add other techniques, from embedding objects to layering and swirling; and it's soap. She spends many pages detailing the natural materials, colorants, additives, and scents for a good foundation; the next four chapters are devoted to 45 recipes, each with color photographs, lists of materials and tools, and easy-to-follow numbered instructions. Choose among the different soap properties (soft, smooth, exfoliation, cleanse, and luxurious). --Booklist
