After years of experimenting with the art of candlemaking, I’ve gathered a sweet list of companies that offer a variety of supplies

GENWAX is a great Southern California candlemaking supply store. They cater towards both wholesalers and hobbyist, and has a wide selection of materials for starting out.

BITTERCREEK has a huge selection of scents to choose from

CANDLEWIC carries a wide range of candlemaking molds and other specialty items for more advanced candlemaking.

DISCOUNT CANDLE has a couple of starter kits if you are the type that likes to be spoon fed :)

    Yes, Genwax is great for candle supplies.

    If you’re going to make candles, you’re going to have to know about wax. But where to start? What kind of wax do you use to make what kind of candle? Many candle makers swear by their favorite wax. The most important thing for a candle maker though, is that they understand the characteristics of their particular wax and the types of candles it can make.

    If you are a beginner, select one type of wax and do your homework. Then experiment and work with it until you have it mastered. Carefully document everything you try so you can fine-tune your work after you have seen and tested the finished product.
