Start Making Your Own Candles

It’s easy to see why anyone would want to start making their own candles. Finding out the information you need to start making them is a bit more tricky however. While many of the big, national craft stores sell candle making supplies, their goods are not always of the best quality, and their selections tend to be very limited. If you really want to purchase some great candle making supplies then a specialist online store is perhaps the best route to go. Then you can get candle making.

Once you have done some reading, decided what sort of candle appeals to you to make, and have a general idea of what is required in actually making them, you can then go and purchase what you need to get started. Just be careful that you only buy what you truly require.

Be aware that Once you start making candles and become more practiced you will start to make adjustments in the techniques you use.


Despite the fact that you can save a lot of money by buying in wholesale quantities, it’s a better idea to buy smaller amounts whilst you are still a beginner. You will only be disappointed to find that you have bought a kilo of something only to find that you don’t feel it’s good for you.

Another thing to keep in mind is that most of the online candle supply shops do not require a minimum purchase. Be clever about this and shop around to see who sells the cheapest of each item you need to buy. You may find better prices or widely different offerings from one supplier to another. Think about hidden costs such as postage and be aware that suppliers nearer to you may offer cheaper postage costs.

Don’t be fooled into thinking that buying cheaper products is going to save you money. When it comes to candle making, you pay for quality. You will appreciate this once you start candle making.
