This informative film comes with all our candle making kits. Watch this before you start using your kit.
First of all, get the right environment for candle making. You want your room to be warm and free of drafts, so keep all your windows and doors closed.
Next, set up a table with all your equipment, it’s best to do the whole process close to your hob, and to cover your table or use a tray to catch any spillages. Finally, get all of your equipment ready to go.
