Creating your candles at home is a fun way of getting crafty, and the process is surprisingly simple. So ditch your shop bought candles and explore our extensive range of candle making supplies; suitable for the experienced candle maker or someone new to the technique. To make a candle from scratch, you need a mould (these can be plastic or metal), a wick, stearin (which gives the candle the hard, shiny surface we expect), and whatever dyes and scents take your fancy. Once you've learned the basic technique, you can go crazy with different scents, colours and containers. We have many purpose-made candle moulds available, or you can experiment with jam jars, teacups and empty cooking sauce jars. We also stock candle fragrance blocks, which can be grated into your melted wax to give your candle a delicious scent as it burns. This a great activity to try with kids or to impress your loved ones with a homemade candle.
