Heat source (electric or stove)

Shaped mold, P500. You can also use old cans or jars, as long as the bottom is not larger than the top so that you can easily remove your candle

Dipping tanks, P1,000 (optional)

10 kg or more of candle wax (beeswax, palm wax, paraffin wax, etc.), P1,000

Wick, P60

Optional ingredients:

Colored dye or chips, P250

Separator (i.e. petroleum jelly, cooking oil, liquid soap), P100

Perfume/potpourri oils, P225

Ingredients can be purchased in a craft, hobby, or grocery store.

Dyes and scents can also be bought from chemical retailers.


Getting started:


1. Place all your equipment in a large and open area, preferably near your kitchen or heating source so the wax stays hot before pouring. Line the workspace with old newspapers. This makes clean up easier and faster.
