'If you’re a complete candle making novice, we couldn’t recommend this kit from The London Refinery enough. Housed in a rustic recyclable cardboard box, the kit comes with simple and clear instructions that guide you in detail on how to make a natural soy wax candle at home in the same way the brand blends and hand-pours its own. As well as key making steps, safety information and a photographic guide, you’re also given access to a step-by-step video, which we found really helped boost our confidence as beginners.
There’s just the right amount of natural soy wax to fill the amber glass jar, as well as a cotton wick, wick glue sticker, main candle label, safety sticker, wick peg, whisk and wax thermometer. You can also add a pouring jug (£9, Londonrefinery.co.uk) and measuring beaker (£4, Londonrefinery.co.uk) to your kit. Each kit makes a 120ml soy candle in your choice of either The London Refinery’s revitalise or relax fragrance blend. We found this one of the easiest kits to follow and were blown away by how professional looking our candle looked. Buy now £29, Londonrefinery.co.uk'
