How Master’s Hand Candles are Made

It’s pretty smelly around here lately… In a good way!!

We have poured up to 15,000 candles in a year before, so it really is quite the project!  Especially since candle pouring “season” is from October-December.  The reason being before October it’s too hot to add more heat with the melter…  After December it’s craaaaaazy cold in the back where we pour!

So long story short, we pour a whole lotta candles in a short amount of time!

Candle season is underway and since we don’t have Oompa Loompas around here (Lucky Willy Wonka!)  Anna is our pouring professional!
This is our melter. Believe it or not… This is the small one. We use it for small batches or “re-pour” batches. Don’t know what re-pour is? Hang on… I’ll cover that!

Here we are in full swing… When we are really going, we can pour 1000+ candles a day! Every single one is hand poured.

 

These candles are fully cooled. The black rings go on the top and the wicks snap into the middle to keep them taunt while the candles cool and contract.
Christmas Cabernet! Yum! What’s your favorite smell?
After the candles cool, you’ll notice the wax sinks down. Sometimes it even leaves gaping holes down the middle. This makes a “re-pour” necessary. (I told you I’d get around to that!!)

Here are the re-pours where we are topping off the candles to finish them off and make the perfect candle we all know and love.
Little known fact: That’s often why with cheap candles they’ll smell good when you first start burning them then after a while they just don’t smell as strong. They heavily scent the re-pour but the main candle hardly has any fragrance in it. Sneaky sneaky!
And taaa-daaa! Finished candles! Make your way to Tekamah, NE and see for yourself!!
