It’s taken the best part of 6 weeks to find the perfect combination of wick, wax and mould for producing consistently fantastic pillar candles. We’ve now got a house-full of failed experiments but all this work was worthwhile because the end results are excellent.
The pillar candles produced by this kit are made of Eco-Soya wax which is not only reputed to be better for the environment but is also harder than paraffin wax and therefore results in a longer burning candle (around 40 hours!). Not only are these candles the biggest in our entire range (at 4 inches high and 2.5 inches across the base) but they’re also just as easy to make as our votive candle kits.
The kit comes as standard without dye or scent. This is because Eco-Soya produces a lovely milky white candle. You can, however, upgrade the product to include dye or a dye/scent combination so that you can make Christmassy red candles for example.
The standard kit costs £13.99 which includes 2lbs of Eco-Soya wax! The equivalent cost to buy the same equipment from a craft retailer would be £30 representing a massive saving of over 53% (over half) ! The savings mount up when you add dye or scent- there’s no cheaper way of making your own long lasting candles.
You can also top up with our refill kits – each one contains enough wax to make a further two pillar candles.
