How simple is it to make a candle? Do you find it pretty challenging to actually make candle wax? Well, you’ll need to purchase wax from a candle making supplies store.

Wax for candle making also comes in a variety of shapes, most commonly the block or else a flake. Beeswax comes in a flat sheet that can be cut and rolled up and does not need to be melted down, unlike the other waxes.
Making candles from the different types of candle wax can also give you an idea of what candles you like the best. Candles wax is also hard or soft like the beeswax so see which medium you like working in the best.
Candle making kits also come with a block of wax, plus a thermometer for checking the melt temperature plus natural dye colours and fragrant essential oils.
Candle fragrance should be non toxic and mix well with the wax. Candle scent like vanilla or lavender is very popular.
You could even invite friends around for an arty afternoon of designing and making your own candles for the next few months. Bulk candle supplies can be a way of splitting the cost of the candle wax as well as the colours and essential oils.
