This is our most popular kit in our Votive Candles range - we've sold thousands - and it gets fantastic customer reviews. It contains everything you need (except basic kitchen equipment) to make 10 scented and coloured votive candles with up to 15 hours burn time each.These candles make perfect room scenters or decorative objects on the mantelpiece or in the bathroom.

You can then reuse the moulds to make further candles using our low-cost refill kit. SPECIAL OFFER - upgrade your kit to make another 10 candles with a discounted refill (select above)

The moulds measure approx 37mm in diameter at base and 47mm at the top. They are 50mm tall.

Whichever you select, you can look forward to a home filled with a pleasant, seasonal aroma from a candle with a gentle, warm flame.

What's different about our kits?

We've developed these kits by using them to create candles ourselves. Because of this, we know that all of our kits work reliably in the real world, producing excellent, consistent, results whilst being easy for beginners to use. Our kits are not mass-manufactured, plastic toy kits: this is real candle-making equipment and ingredients aimed at people who want to learn how to do it properly.

They also make the ideal gift to introduce a loved one to the creative world of candle making. Unlike any other supplier, we include beeswax in our kits because this hardens your candles and makes them burn longer. It also makes the scent of the candle a little sweeter. Just add 10% beeswax to your paraffin wax to get the ideal mixture.

Each kit contains:

    • 2 x metal moulds
    • 450g Blended Paraffin Wax
    • 50g Beeswax (hardens your candles and makes them burn longer)
    • 1.5m Wick (plenty to spare in case you want to experiment)
    • 12 metal tabs (for fixing the wick to the bottom of the mould: includes 2 spares)
    • Pipette for measuring scent oil
    • Wick pins for keeping the wick straight while the wax dries
    • Blutack for sticking the wick to the wick pins
    • Cream Dye
    • 30ml vanilla candle scent
    • See how to make these candles or watch the video below

This kit is packaged in a brown box containing red or pink tissue paper.

    Great starting kit... everything you need to get started

    Great starting kit and instructions, also a great service and packaging from these nice folks. Very helpful people and will be so easy to contact to get any further materials when these run out.

    Candles I made last longer than the bought ones I had and the moulds are a perfect size for my glass votive holders.

    Fabulous kit - addictive new hobby!

    Posted by Lucind Quail on 30th Dec 2012

    We wanted to try making our own candles and found this lovely company website. The kit was perfect for us as beginners - it had everything we needed and the instructions were really easy to follow. We liked the way the kit was packaged . Delighted to say our first attempt at candle making was a success and we have enjoyed the scent of our vanilla candles over Christmas :-) Thanks to Peta and the team for excellent customer service and the speedy dispatch of our order.

    Great product

    Posted by Carol Anderson on 5th Nov 2012

    I had never made candles and thought it would be difficult but with this kit I found it to be easy & fun. The step by step guide was excellent although I also watched the video before I began. It does what it says, it gives excellent results and the scent last throughout the entire burn of the candle. The product comes beautifully presented with layers of tissue paper which I have used to gift wrap my lovely candles. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who is interested in making high quality scented candles.
