Create your own dye and scent combination with this Mix and Match Votive candle making kit!

This kit contains everything you need (except basic kitchen equipment) to make 10 scented and coloured votive candles with up to 15 hours burn time each. You can then reuse the moulds to make further candles.

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

Whichever scent and dye combination you select, you can look forward to a home filled with a pleasant, cleansing 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.

Click here to see the instructions we include with our kits.

Each kit contains:

  • 2 x metal moulds
  • 450g Blended Paraffin Wax 
  • 50g Beeswax 
  • 1.5m Wick 
  • 12 metal tabs 
  • Pipette for measuring scent 
  • Wick pins for keeping the wick straight while the wax dries
  • Blutack for sticking the wick to the wick pins
  • 5g Dye of your choice
  • 30ml Scent of your choice
  • Fully illustrated instructions

    Professional Kit

    Posted by Amazon Customer on 30th Aug 2013

    The item is exactly what they say it is... So I'm very happy. It says it's a professional kit but it's very easy to make the candles, so will do the job nicely for completely beginners.

    Great Kit

    Posted by Kelly on 3rd Feb 2013

    My friend and I have been thinking about making candles for a while. After researching various kits on line we felt this looked professional and just what we needed to have a go. We bought this kit together and made some candles following the simple intructions, we also found the video intructions very useful. They were a lot easier to make than we thought and we were very proud of our candles! We will definitely be buying more candle materials from here.

    Good value for money

    Very easy to follow instructions made my first two yesterday, one came out without any trouble but I couldn't budge the second. Put it in the fridge for half an hour and then it was fine. Just waiting for the next two to harden, suppose practice makes perfect but I'm sure I will be ordering more in the future, it's good fun. My order arrived very quickly and was beautifully packed. Very impressed.

    Great Starter Kit

    Posted by Lynney on 21st Oct 2012

    I've made a small number of votive candles since purchasing my kit - some scented and coloured; some scent/colour free. Both turned out really well and the instructions were clear and easy to follow. I was a little unsure about the slightly 'synthetic' aroma of the Christmas Puding Fragrance, but it was really nice when the candles were burnt. I also made a small number of 'kindle cones' and was pleased with these too. I will be ordering more wax, fragrance and wick very soon.

    Excellent service. Packages arrived the day after I ordered them, even with economy postage. Everything was excellent quality and the instructions were very easy to follow. The only suggestion I would make is to have more range in the essences you offer, for example, green tea and lemongrass and non food related scents. Otherwise excellent - perfect for gifts!

    Great, easy to use kit.

    Posted by Cath on 7th Mar 2012

    I wanted to make some votive candles to sell at a fundraising event and so bought this kit and a refill set (having bought other great stuff from this site). As expected the kit had everything I needed and following the well-written instructions I found making the candles straight-forward and got some great results. The only thing was that I chose a cherry scent for the refill which was very strong in the bottle, but when I burned a candle (you have to test these you know!) the scent was very faint. I'll use more than recommended next time.
