How To Make Coffee Candles?

We have prepared two ideas on how to make coffee candles. Some candles are in the shape and aroma of the coffee, and others have coffee inside. The latter are decorative candles that smell like coffee, but we don’t recommend lighting them. You will see what a simple way to decorate and aromatize your home.

The first of the coffee candles in this tutorial consists of a cylindrical candle in which paraffin is mixed with coffee beans. The visual effect is very decorative, and the intense smell of coffee is perceived without the need for light. We don’t think you should light these candles because the coffee beans might stop them from burning.

Write down the ingredients we have used to make it:

Before you start, you must consider that the utensils you will use, soup tureens and spatulas, must not be used for any other purpose.

Let’s start!

Coffee Candles

Step by step to make the candles

  1. Melt soy wax over medium heat. Once melted, add a few drops of white liquid candle coloring and coffee essence. Mix well and let the temperature drop a little.
  2. In the meantime, prepare the mold. Spray mold release spray inside the mold and place it on a cold, smooth surface impregnated with mold release. Pour coffee beans inside the mold to cover the base, and then pour wax from step 1 to cover the beans. Add a few more coffee beans and let it cool for a few minutes. This will seal the base and allow the wax to come out.
  3. Placing the guiding rod in the mold’s center and fastening it with a stick with holes. As you fill the mold, alternately add wax and coffee beans. To ensure that the wax fills each hole, lightly tap the mold. Allow it to totally dry.
  4. Unmold the candle once it has solidified, then take the guiding rod out. through the opening created by the waxed wick. You can use the rod to slightly widen the hole if it is too tiny. Cut off the extra wick by pressing it against the portion that extends through the candle’s base. Now the candle is prepared.

Making Coffee-Scented Candles

The second tutorial consists of some candles that imitate a creamy coffee in a small glass and that, when lit, the atmosphere will be filled with a pleasant aroma of coffee. Very few materials are needed to make these coffee candles in the shape and aroma of coffee. We will use 464 soy wax and make a different texture with the last layer of wax to give a milk foam sensation.

The candles in glass are very comfortable since they do not stain when melting. The wax that melts remains inside the glass.

You can add aromatic essences or counter-types and colorants to candles to be able to personalize them to your taste.
