    This is the first time I've made candles and it was so easy. Okay the first two I made were not 100 per cent but you learn by making errors. Mine was not letting the cAndles set enough before topping up. However, I'm so enthused by this product I've ordered the refills so I can make more

    Great Idea If you Want to Start Candle Making - Get a Kit

    Posted by Jean Howgill on 22nd Jan 2014

    I decided to make candle and found this candle making kit on the internet. I was very dubious at first, but the instructions were very explicit - except I put the wick upside down on the first attempt! I have now made 4 votives and am on my way to making more. Well done, its well worth the money.

    Great beginner Kit

    Posted by Laura on 26th Sep 2013

    I bought this back in April, but only just made my first two candles! It is a very good basic beginners kit, but what l really like is how you can watch tutorial videos instead of following a booklet. This is really helpful. Great value for money and l can't wait to test my new candles out! Thank you:)

    Easier than I expected

    The site is easy to navigate and I found exactly what I wanted. My parcel arrived really quickly and was packaged in a sturdy box... The contents wrapped in pink tissue and the invoice had a personal handwritten message(nice touch). The instructions are easy to read and follow. Yeh I have made 2 lovely votive candles. I think 2 for a beginners 1st attempt is fine. Looking forward to making the next 2.

    easy as abc!

    first time buying any candle making sets and this set was perfect! everything i needed to get started was included and the website has excellent step by step videos! don't like the fact you can only make two candles at a time, so I've yet to use the whole kit, but i'll definitely be ordering more from this site in the future!!

    Nice and easy!

    I found the site easy to navigate, the service was great. Only thing I would change is the way you can only make two candles at a time with this kit. I had to buy extras which I would have liked to see included in the package.
