Are you looking to start making candles? If so, you're going to need some supplies! This blog post explains the best candle-making supplies you will need as a beginner. Read on to find out more!


Wax is an essential ingredient for anyone interested in making their own candles. Various types of wax are available on the market, each with its own unique properties. A popular type of wax for beginners is paraffin wax. Paraffin wax is relatively easy to work with and has a low melting point, making it ideal for those just starting out. Another type of wax that is often used in candle making is beeswax. Beeswax has a higher melting point than paraffin wax, but it is also more difficult to work with. However, many experienced candle makers prefer beeswax because of its natural qualities. Whichever type of wax you choose, be sure to select a high-quality product from a reputable supplier.

Candle moulds

Moulds are an essential tool for those just starting out in candle making. Moulds come in a variety of shapes and sizes and can be made from a variety of materials, including silicone, plastic or metal. The type of mould you choose will depend on the type of candles you want to make. For example, if you want to make pillar candles, you will need a tall and narrow mould. If you want to make votive candles, on the other hand, you will need a mould that is short and wide. Moulds can also be used to create specialist candles, such as tealights or tart burners. When choosing a candle mould, you must consider the size, shape and material that you need. With so many options available, it is easy to find a mould that suits your needs.


The scent is a very important aspect of any candle, and it can be tricky to choose the right fragrance for your needs. If you're just starting out, it's a good idea to choose a few basic scents that you know you'll love. For example, a citrus scent can be refreshing and uplifting, while a floral scent can be soothing and romantic. Once you have a few scents in mind, you can explore the different available fragrance oils. Then, with a little bit of trial and error, you will be able to find the perfect fragrances for your candles.

About Me

Scrapbooking my life

My wife's friends think I'm a funny outlier because I'm a middle-aged man who likes scrapbooking, where most of the scrapbookers in my age group are women. I'm sure I'm not the only one so I decided to start a blog for all us male scrapbookers. It's a great way to collect some of my concert tickets and sporting memorabilia. My kids love going through the scrapbooks and asking me about my memories of all of these cool events. It's great to be able to display and share these memories rather than just keeping them hidden away in a box. We should all swap tips about being scrapbookers.
