Gel Candles

Posted on Monday 10 May 2010

Gel candles are increasing in popularity. They are very decorative and are great as scented candles. Individuals are even starting to make gel candles as hobbies.

When candle making with gel candles, make sure to get the right density level. There are three levels and they are low, medium, and high. The density level indicates the potency of the candles fragrances.

The lightest fragrance will come from the lowest density level. The highest potency will come from the highest density level. Just know how potent you want your candle to be before you buy your supplies.

Gel candle’s ability to suspend objects within it makes it very popular. Beads, stones, marbles, and even decorative fruit are just some of the examples that the gel can suspend. Because the gel is translucent, you can see these objects suspended in it.

You can add dye to gel candles just like with wax candles. The gel candles can have fragrance, color, and suspended objects. Gel candles really are beautiful because there are so many options of how to decorate them.

Candle making with wax candles is easier than with gel candles. The thing that makes candle making much harder is it is never in a true liquid form. Even melted it is still a gel or syrup consistency.

Making gel candles becomes easier with practice. But you will always have to be cautious about adding too much dye or fragrance. The extra effort is always worth it once you have your finished gel candle.

It is very rewarding to do candle making with gel. After working with it for so long, you will feel like you have mastered the art of making gel candles. The candles you make can be given as gifts, sold, or you can use them yourself.
