Make The Maia!

Make a Coconut Wax Candle Using the Gorgeous Maia Ceramic

Watch Our YouTube Video For Complete Instructions.

We are in love with the beautiful Maia Ceramic containers, available in blush pink, sage green, and eggshell white. The Maia is handmade with on-trend colors. We worked closely with our manufacturer to perfect this truly beautiful container.

The Maia will comfortably hold 13 oz of wax, and we recommend double wicking this lovely container. We used our special blend of Coconut 83 and SP486 wax, two LX 10 wicks, and Candle Science’s ‘Strawberry Guava’ fragrance oil at 12%.

The Recipe:

75% Coconut 83

25% SP 486

12% Fragrance Oil

Two LX 10 Wicks

We are making a 13 oz candle; the total weight of the wax and the fragrance oil combined is 13 oz. Here is how we calculate our formula:

13 oz x .12 = 1.56 oz fragrance oil

13 – 1.56 = 11.44 oz wax

11.44 x .75 = 8.58 oz Coconut 83

11.44 x .25 = 2.86 oz SP 486

We purchased our Coconut 83 at California Candle Supply, although there are several other suppliers as well. It is often most cost effective to find the supplier closest to you.
