Great Kit for Newbies

I'm new to candle making. I purchased this kit because I thought it would be a great introduction to candle making and the price was reasonable. It contains everything needed to make 12 candles. The instructions were very easy to follow. I felt such a sense of accomplishment after I poured my last candle. My house smelled incredible. My favorite scent is the Grapefruit & Mangosteen. Very refreshing fragrance. I did notice frosting and craters on the candle tops. I used my heating gun to fix those issues. I waited 2 weeks before lighting my first candle. The cold throw was awesome. I could smell it instantly when I took the lid off. I lit the Grapefruit & Mangosteen candle and let it burn for three hours. I couldn't smell a thing. The hot throw was just not there. The wick burned evenly and produced a great melt pool but no hot throw. When the candle cooled it had craters and the top looked very rough. So, the next day I lit the very vanilla candle. No hot throw at all. To sum it all up. I really like the candle making kit but I'm not a fan of the GW464 wax.
And so the search and testing begins for a wax that produces smooth tops and better HT.

Perfect kit for first time candle making

I bought this kit to start making candles for the first time, and it was perfect. It couldn’t have been easier to follow and my candles turned out great!

Owner

I bought this kit wanting to get into the candle making business. The kit offers basic materials to get started, however the instructions to which I followed precisely resulted in poor quality candles. I even watched the video from CandleScience to make sure I was following the steps. The wick that comes in the kit for these 8oz tins is incorrect (no matter what is said) I have tested this. The fragrances that were sent and instructed to add at 185 degrees is horrible and produces barely any scent throw cold or hot. I would expect candlesience to produce a kit for beginners that would entice them to purchase more products based on their results with this kit. You can’t tell me it was the process I completed, I followed your instructions! I have bought products from candlesience since this kit but it is mainly for price difference. Hope this gets better for other beginners.

A Solid Starter Kit

I was really excited to buy this kit in order to start practicing candlemaking, and I am not disappointed! The kit provides base tools needed for teaching oneself, and a great starting point for the journey of learning a new skill. My first 3 creations are setting up nicely (and smell amazing with the rain water fragrance!) Invest and enjoy playing - you will not regret it!

New Candlemaker

I received and made my first few batches of candles over the last week. It was very easy to use and the directions were very simple to follow along with. The only downside I have noticed is I don't get a complete burn to the outer edges of the containers. After doing some research seems like the wick size they provided, ECO 12, is too small for my 8 ounce tins. According to the wick guide, I should be using ECO 14. Another con is the price of shipping! Other than that, I am extremely pleased.

Great Starter Kit

I really like the soy starter kit. My candles came out great. The kit is reasonably priced, but the shipping is a bit pricey. It will be hard to recoup the expense of supplies unless you overcharge for the candles.

Excellent

Loved this starter kit! Candles all turned out perfect!!!

OVERPRICED

PURCHASED SEPARATELY AT THIS WEBSITE THE VALUE OF THE CONTENTS OF THIS KIT ONLY TOTAL $45.
If you really want a good value for your investment in the same high quality Candle Science items,
instead of the kit that makes 12 eight-ounce WHITE candles in four pre-selected scents
consider purchasing the following items to make 30 eight-ounce COLORED candles in up to ten scents of your choice:
1 Small Melting/Pouring Pitcher (you can skip this item if you plan to melt your soy in the microwave - it's easy!)
8" Glass Thermometer
1 Dozen Wick Bars
10 pounds of Golden Brands 464 Soy Wax Flakes
2 ECO Wick Sample Kits (one kit contains 5 of each wick size)
1 Roll Large Wick Stickers
1 Roll Warning Labels
10 Fragrance Oil 1oz Sample Bottles in your choice of scents (1oz for each pound of soy wax)
Find 30 HEAT-SAFE RECYCLED CONTAINERS OR Purchase 3 Dozen 8oz Containers such as:
8oz Tins (use ECO-12 Wicks from the ECO Sample Pack listed above)
8oz Apothecary Jars (use ECO-16 Wicks from the ECO Sample Pack listed above)
8oz Jelly Jars (use ECO-10 Wicks from the ECO Sample Pack listed above)
(Just remember, container diameter determines wick size and there are only so many of each size in the wick sample kits.)
After your first couple of batches in the metal tins, give COLORED candles a try in the glass containers:
Purchase CS Dye Block Sampler OR Reddig-Glow Dye Chip Sampler
(Dark colored candles seem to burn differently for me, so consider going up a wick size for dark colored candles and/or do a burn test.)
Please note that while the total purchase cost may be a larger investment, you will be paying less for the MATERIALS (soy, wicks, scent) to produce more candles which results in a lower individual cost per candle. The cost of all the other times (pitcher, thermometer, bars) are the EQUIPMENT that you get to keep to use again.
By all means, do make full use of the excellent instructional videos at the Candle Science LEARNING page.
Best of luck and enjoy your Candle Science adventure!

I ordered this kit with no experience at all in order to make candles with my son for Christmas gifts. With this kit, some extra supplies, and watching a few online videos (including the candlescience one), we made amazing candles on our first try. Cold and hot throw are great! Thanks! One piece of advice, for other fragrance oils that have flash points lower than 180F, we added the fragrance when the temp was about 5-10 degrees below the flash point and it really helped. Even our bayberry candles smell terrific.

Fantastic

I bought this kit with no expierenced in candle making. It comes with some wonderful products. The sample fragrances are really good too. I would definitely recommend this kit for starting out. The pot is pretty small (only fitting 1lb. Of wax) but it is worth the money. Thank you candle science 💞

I bought the kit a couple months ago so I could make candles for gifts for Christmas. I enjoyed the process and I'm looking forward to making more. If I get a good response I'm hoping starting a candle/ bath&body business. The reason I only have it 4 stars is the wicks are thick. They burn too hot and causes the mushroom top. I would use eco 10. Also the lids to the tins are too tight are hard to remove.

Great for the novice!

This was a great kit! I received it last night, and made my first batch of candles in an hour. The included instructions are really clear and easy to follow. Even the sampler scents are really good. Highly recommend!

Mrs.

My kit arrived exactly when it was supposed to. I was super excited. Made two batches of candles (6) in a breeze. the directions are super easy to follow. The only thing is there weren't any scents in this kit. Praise God I had scents from previous attempts at candle making, and used those. Im not sure of the ratio of scent to wax, so hopefully it will come out great, I am selling these so I won't know for sure until I sell it. Nevertheless, I love candlescience!!!!!

Perfect

Just finished the first batch and they turned out perfect. I bought the kit to see if I could handle making candles as wedding favors and I'm very happy with them. Now, I just need to figure out how to get labels made for the top.

I really like this candle kit I love the different fragrance they smell very good and the shipping was really fast! Thank you😊

Perfection

I can't say enough about how pleased I am with this purchase! Thanks so much Candle Science for allowing me to start my business with an affordable package like this! I have made all of my candles from this kit and they have turned out amazing! The directions make this even better for a beginner like myself!

Creator

As a first time candle maker, this kit was exciting to get and use!!! I've made all 12 candles and loved every single time!! I love that they include a guide with pictures to help you and also remind you of the process!! It's so fun and I can't wait to expand my candle business!!! The scents are SOOOO delicious smelling!! Omgosh... The very vanilla one was my favorite bc it smells like cupcakes haha definitely recommend getting this kit if you're a beginner who wants to get a feel for candle making!! It's really fun and easy.. And did I mention fun?!

Awesome kit

I have never made candles before. This kit has pictures and very easy directions, along with everything you need to make 12 8oz candles. I now have a candle making business and buy all my supplies from candle science.

Perfect for a newbie

I bought this kit and I love it. I have never made candles before and this kit made candle making simple and enjoyable. I love the scents. My boyfriend and my co-workers agree. Unfortunately, one candle had air pockets underneath the top layer of wax, which were not visible until I burned the candle. Small air bubbles occasionally appeared while it was burning. I'm not sure what I did so I can prevent it from happening again that or if it only happened to that one. However, aside from that, it was a lot of fun and this kit is the reason for that.

I've been using candle science for a long time now and I won't use any one but them. The fragrance list is awesome and their wax is the bomb. I use the GB 464 for all of my candles. This company is the best in candle supplies.

Candlescience products are the best. Their fragrances are great smelling, their prices are very reasonable, their selections of wax are outstanding and delivery is fast and dependable.

If you are looking for a reliable company...candlescience is the company.
