Maple Grove Candle Making
is a small business that I started in my basement in Maple Grove, Minnesota. I make soy candles, wax melts, and tarts. I use all natural ingredients and essential oils in my products. I was inspired to start my own business after I became frustrated with the lack of high-quality, all-natural candles available on the market. I love making candles and I love being my own boss. My goal is to provide my customers with beautiful, all-natural candles that they can feel good about burning.
I started my business in the fall of 2016. I started out by making soy candles and selling them on Etsy. I soon expanded my product line to include wax melts and tarts. I use all natural ingredients in my products, including essential oils. I love making candles and I love being my own boss. My goal is to provide my customers with beautiful, all-natural candles that they can feel good about burning.
I am a self-taught candle maker. I have never taken a course or workshop in candle making. I have, however, read a lot of tutorials and watched a lot of videos. I am always learning and trying new techniques. My favorite part of candle making is blending different scents together to create unique fragrances.
I use only the highest quality ingredients in my candles. I use soy wax, which is a natural, renewable resource. I use essential oils and fragrance oils, which are all-natural and phthalate-free. I never use any dyes or artificial colors in my candles.
My candles are made in small batches, so I can ensure the highest quality and consistency. I use a slow-burning soy wax, which results in a long-lasting candle. I hand-pour each candle and I use a cotton wick, which burns clean and provides a good scent throw.
I am currently selling my candles and melts on Etsy. I am also looking for wholesale accounts. My goal is to grow my business and expand my product line. I am passionate about candle making and I am committed to providing my customers with high-quality, all-natural candles.

There are many different types of waxes that can be used for candle making, including soy wax, beeswax, and paraffin wax. Soy wax is a good choice for beginners, as it is easy to work with and is non-toxic.
Wicks come in a variety of sizes and styles, and it is important to choose the right wick for your candle. The wick size should be based on the diameter of the candle container and the type of wax being used.
The most common type of heat source for candle making is a stovetop. However, if you do not have a stovetop, you can also use a microwave, slow cooker, or hot plate.

Ingredients For Making A Candle
The recipe for a candle is simple: wax and a wick. The most important factor in making a candle is the type of wax you use. There are many different types of waxes on the market, each with their own properties.
The most popular type of wax for candles is paraffin wax. It is a petroleum-based wax that is easy to work with and has a high melting point, making it a good choice for candles that are meant to be burned for a long time.
Another popular type of wax is soy wax. Soy wax is made from soybeans, making it a natural product. It has a lower melting point than paraffin wax, meaning that it will melt at a lower temperature. This makes it a good choice for candles that are meant to be burned for a short time.
The type of wax you choose will also determine the type of wick you need. There are two types of wicks: cotton and fiberglass. Cotton wicks are made from cotton fibers and are the most common type of wick. They are easy to use and are a good choice for most types of candles. Fiberglass wicks are made from glass fibers and are a good choice for candles that are meant to be burned for a long time. They have a high melting point and are less likely to burn out than cotton wicks.
Once you have chosen the wax and the wick, the next step is to melt the wax. You can do this by placing the wax in a pot on the stove and heating it until it is melted. Once the wax is melted, you can add the wick. Be sure to center the wick in the wax and make sure it is straight.
Once the wax is melted and the wick is in place, you can pour the wax into a container. You can use any type of container you like, but be sure to choose one that is deep enough to hold the wax.
Once the wax has cooled, you can light the candle and enjoy it.
Just A Couple Of Guys And A Dog Making Candle
Professional candlemakers are a rare breed. They are artists, chemists, and technicians who have mastered the art of working with wax. The end result of their efforts is a beautiful, fragrant, and safe candle.
Candlemaking is not a difficult process, but it does require some basic knowledge of chemistry and physics. The first step is to measure the ingredients. The wax, the fragrance, and the color all need to be added in the right proportions to create a safe and beautiful candle.
The wax is melted and then poured into a mold. The mold is then placed in a refrigerator to cool. Once the wax is firm, the candle is removed from the mold and trimmed. The wick is then inserted and the candle is ready to be burned.
The most important part of candlemaking is the safety. Hot wax can cause serious burns, so it is important to take precautions when working with it. Always use caution when melting wax and never leave a candle burning unattended.
Candlemaking is a fun and rewarding hobby. It can be done with just a few basic supplies and a little bit of knowledge. With a little practice, you can create beautiful candles that will enhance any room.
