Loved this Kit...but...

This was the first ever for me making candles. It was so simple and I loved it. The only downside is the candle tin lids. They all have at least 2 tiny dents in them. I didnt plan on putting a label on top but might try to do so in order to try and hide the dents. Otherwise this kit was so much fun to use and will be buying more wax and tins. Hopefully those lids will not be dented...

100% recomend for us begginers

This kit is exactly what I was looking for. I am very interested in creating candles myself so I did a research on what products are good quality to make them, and that's when I found candlescience. This kit provides everything you need to make candles yourself and even guides you through out the process making it easier to us begginers. This has been one of my best investments and I am very excited to buy more products to create more candles.

Easy Process

This was my first attempt at making candles and it WORKED!!! I read the reviews and decided to judge for myself.
I enjoyed it. It was actually calming. The scents are unique. I made my first set last Wednesday and will let them cure for the recommended 2-3 weeks to see if I can get the maximum hot throw. I will keep you posted.

No Hot Throw

I was very excited to try out this candle kit as I’ve heard great things about CS. I followed the directions step by step and the end result looked perfect; and the cold throw was amazing. However, as it came time to light the candle, there was no hot throw. I cured it for about a week and I am VERY disappointed. I noticed others complaining about their experience and didn’t think I would have an issue being that I followed the instructions to the T.

Hello! Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We're sorry to hear this kit has given you issues with hot throw. Extending the cure time to two weeks may be helpful, but there are a lot of factors that go into creating the best possible hot throw.

Starter kit

I ordered and was nervous about some of the reviews I saw, but I am very pleased. Everything was in the kit that was supposed to be there, and it came a few days early! I’m currently in the 2 week process of letting it cure. I can’t wait to order more stuff from this site.

Missing items

The two 1oz fragrance oils are missing. Order Feb 23 received Mar 2nd, 7 days. My order contained items from two different locations NV & NC. The NC box arrived 4 days ago.
Shipping cost is too pricey especially since there is a shipping cost per location. My subtotal was $74.08 and my shipping cost was $66.10!

Candle Making Starter Kit

I purchase this kit a few years back. What I've learned since then is that in order for you to smell this candle throughout its lifetime, I cured for 2-weeks, and that made all the difference in the world. Is something about when you first make the candle and let it stand to solidify, then burn, the throw is very good and strong, but after you light it a second time, descent is not as strong. This is the reason why I tried other means to see what works. This is when I found that 2 weeks of curing really makes a difference.
