What supplies do I need to make candles?
It’s good to know that you can buy your supplies all in one place! Here’s a summary of what you will need to get started on your candle making journey. You can also access our ‘How To Make Candles’ guide here.
Firstly, you’ll need a hob or hotplate as a heat source and a double boiler. Alternatively, you can use a pan, fill it with water & pop a bowl on top, which creates your own double boiler method. Thirdly, if you have a glass jug, you can use your microwave to melt your wax. Read our guide for more info on methods.
Thermometers are very important in candle-making – temperature is the difference between a good candle & a bad candle!
You will need a glass or metal jug to pour the melted wax in to. This is a jug which you will be adding colour & fragrance oil, so make sure you’re happy to use it as your ‘candle making jug’ in the future.
Now that the materials are out of the way, let’s discuss the variable materials. After all, if all candles were the same, how boring would that be?
One of the most important products in a candle is the wax. Firstly, decide what wax you are wanting to use. Our top-selling waxes are Soya & Paraffin wax.
The second most important component is the fragrance oil; all our fragrance oils are exclusively made, premium quality & concentrated.
Our candle wicks are all tried & tested; we have provided an approximate starting guide for which wick you will need, dependant on your container size. You will find the guide in the description section of each wick. We recommend the LX Series wicks if you are working with Paraffin wax, & either Stabilo Series, TCR Series or Eco Wicks if you are working with Soya Wax.
Candle dyes are also available if you prefer a coloured candle. We have candle dye chips & candle liquid dye.
We stock small, medium & large candle containers (20cl, 30cl & 50cl and more!). Our glassware is high quality & candle-safe.
Additional products that will make your life much easier:
Wick Stick Ums are a game changer! They are double-sided & stick your wick to the bottom of your container. These ensure your wick stays central.
Wick Centering Tool’s are another game-changer; they make life much easier when it comes to keeping your candle wick central (it’s harder than it sounds, honestly).
You can use any utensil really to stir your wax, & to stir in your colour & fragrance, just make sure you don’t want to use that utensil for food any more. A spoon will do the trick nicely.
