Candle making is an art form that has been around for centuries. The process of making a candle is relatively simple, but there are a few things to keep in mind in order to make a quality candle.
The first step in candle making is to choose the right wax. There are a few different types of waxes that can be used for candles, but the most common type is paraffin wax. Paraffin wax is a petroleum-based wax that is easy to work with and is available in a variety of colors.
The next step is to determine the size and shape of the candle. This can be done by using a mold, or by freehanding it.
Once the wax is chosen and the shape of the candle is determined, the next step is to melt the wax. This can be done in a variety of ways, but the most common way is to use a hot plate or a double boiler.
Once the wax is melted, it is time to add the fragrance. There are a variety of different fragrances that can be used, but it is important to make sure that the fragrance is food grade.
The next step is to add the wick. The wick should be placed in the center of the candle and should be the same width as the candle.
Once the fragrance and the wick are added, the candle is ready to be poured. The candle should be poured slowly and should be allowed to cool for a few hours before it is lit.
Candles can be made in a variety of different colors and styles, and can be used to add a touch of elegance to any room.

All of our candles are hand-poured in small batches. We use only the highest quality ingredients and take care to ensure that each candle is perfectly crafted.

There are many reasons why you might want to make your own candle wick. Maybe you can’t find the perfect wick for the candles you want to make, or maybe you’re just looking for a way to save a little money. Whatever the reason, making your own candle wick is a fairly simple process.
The first step is to choose the right kind of wick. You’ll want to find a wick that is made for candles, and there are several different types to choose from. The most common type of wick is a cotton wick, but you can also find wicks made from beeswax, soy wax, and other materials.
Once you’ve chosen the right type of wick, you’ll need to cut it to the right size. The length of the wick will depend on the size of the candle you’re making, but it should be at least twice the height of the candle.
The next step is to attach the wick to the candle. You can do this by using a wick holder, or you can simply tape the wick to the bottom of the candle.
The final step is to light the wick. You can do this by using a lighter or a match. Be sure to keep the wick lit for the entire length of the candle.
