DD13 is smelly candle mad at the moment, is very creative when she puts her mind to it & has a good nose for what she does & doesnt like. So I thought getting her candle making gear for Xmas, would be a great idea.
I don't really want to buy a ready made kit, as I usually find its better to just buy the bits & bobs you need. It's a very long to me since I gave made candles myself, so,I would be grateful on any advice as to what & where to buy
A thermometer is also a good idea to measure the temperature you put the fragrance oil in at. Another good site is candle-shack.com, I have an online candle shop and get most of my supplies there and they have friendly customer service
I'm going to order today, I need to avoid the soy wax as she has an allergy, but there are some great tips in links/sites you have posted, I'm a bit confused with wicks, but will try a few different ones. It's only for home use to make votives, as that's the ones she loves & I've been collecting the empty jars for a while.
One question though - with the perfumes, I will buy a few & I can see that she could add aromatherapy oils, which we always have in at home, but can you also use the food grade flavouring/scents ??
