How Do I Get Started in Candle Making?
Our answer to this question is different than most because before we can make recommendations, the questioner needs to answer some things on their own and do some general homework first. We suggest you do the following first:
- Decide what type of candle you would like to make. For example, waxes used in pillars are different than waxes used in container fills. This also applies to the type of wick that will be needed, etc.
- Decide if this will be a hobby or a business. The quantities needed will vary greatly depending on your plans.
- Determine where you will make your candles. If you decide that the place will be your kitchen, make sure you can properly protect the area because you will spill and drip wax.
- Purchase a book that describes in detail all the safety rules needed in order to make a candle safely.
