Keep a Journal

Guest Author - Benito Lugo

If you are new or a seasoned candlemaker, keeping a journal of your candle recipes can be very valuable. It will help you make a consistant product or give you a source to build upon when you make an error. Over a period of days, weeks even years you will be able to log and track waxes, wax blends, scents, wicks and additives used. This can be helpful in mass producing your candles for sale or consistantly making one of your own favorites. You can choose to use any type of writing tablet, spiral or loose leaf binder. The loose leaf binder would be convenient in that you may add or remove pages as you see fit and you can design and copy in mass the individual sheets. The most important thing is that you list everything in a consistent manner.

Once you know what information you want to record now is the time to put it on paper. You will obviously want to name your project/candle, listing your wax type and other candle components. Something that a lot of candlemakers fail to note is the environmental conditions each time they make a candle. Factors such as room temperature and humidity can play a large role in your final product. These can affect how fast or slow your candle cools. It can also affect how your candle releases from its mold. Also feel free to note anything you see fit in the note area.
