8 Step By Step Guide To A DIY Selaluz Pillar Crystal Candle

1.Gather your materials:

  • Paraffin wax

  • Wicks

  • Double boiler or a heat-safe container and a pot to create a makeshift double boiler

  • Thermometer

  • Scissors

  • Wax Pitcher for pouring

  • Molds (for pillar candles)

  • Fragrance or essential oils (optional)

  • Dye (optional)

  • Gloves

  • Mixing stick

  • Crystals inch or less

  • Silicone Mold Release

  • Burning Warning Label

2. Melt the wax:

  • Fill the bottom of the double boiler with water and bring it to a simmer.

  • Cut the paraffin wax into small pieces and place it in the top of the double boiler.

  • Stir occasionally until the wax is completely melted.

  • Use a thermometer to ensure that the wax reaches a temperature of at least 170°F.

3. Add fragrance and dye (if desired):

Put on those gloves and grab your Pouring Pitcher

  • Once the wax is melted, add fragrance or essential oils and dye (if desired) to the wax.

  • Stir well to ensure that the fragrance and dye are fully incorporated into the wax.

  • 2 OZ of fragrance to 1lb of paraffin

4. Prepare the wick & mold:

  • Measure and cut the wick to the desired length for your candle.

  • *Wick size depends on diameter of mold.* Try 1mm hemp wick if your diameter is about 3''-5''

  • Use a clothespin or ( I use a chopstick) to hold the wick in place while the wax sets.

  • Spray mold of choice with Mold Release Spray.

5. Pour the wax:

  • Slowly pour the melted wax into the mold in a non windy area to ensure proper cooling process.

  • Make sure that the wick stays centered as you pour the wax.

  • Only pour half way!!

  • Wait about 45 mins and ADD a couple crystals, stones, shells, charms a little away from the wick, but not too far. This is the time Selaluz Crystal Pyramid Candles add the intentions and plays beautiful music to the candles. The wax molds memory!

  • **NO PAPER,PLASTIC,RESIN in your crystal candle**


6. Allow the crystal candle to cool:

  • Allow the candle to cool completely. This can take up to 8 several hours or overnight.

7. Trim the wick:

  • Once the crystal candle is cool and solid, use scissors to trim the wick to about 1/4 inch above the wax and add your candle burning warning labeL.

8. Enjoy your homemade Selaluz DIY crystal pillar candle!



**It's important to note that this is a general guide, the actual process may slightly vary depending on the amount of wax, type of wick, and size of molds you use, brand, and oil. Please follow the burning instructions from your purchased burning warning labels.**
