Candle Making- How to Books Can Be a Lifesaver

It is important that everyone have some kind of hobby or creative pastime, such as candle making. Candle making is a great way to clear your mind of your troubles, relieving stress, and releasing pent up energy and frustration. It is a great hobby for people who suffer from hypertension, and can also be very fun and rewarding financially, once you master your skills. To get started, you might want to purchase a candle making kit, which can be found in your local craft or discount store, so that you can see if you like the craft, before spending a lot of money on supplies. The kits are relatively inexpensive, and sometimes can even be found on E-bay. Once you have the basics down, and have decided you would like to continue making candles, you might want to do some research into more difficult styles or techniques that you could incorporate into your own work, and this is where how-to books come into play.


You may be able to find many of these books at your local public library, which will save you some cash. You can find books that can help you learn the basic candle making techniques, provide you with time-saving tips, and even ideas and patterns for other types of candles that may peak your interest.

If you can’t find what you are looking for at the library, you should turn next to some online vendors, or perhaps even E-bay. Take the time to look at some reviews and go over the details the book covers, before you spend your hard earned cash on it, just to make certain it is what you are looking for. Many of the books that you can find on E-bay and other auction sites are listed by people who bought the book, and decided they either didn’t like it, or just didn’t have need of it anymore, either way, this usually works out to be for your benefit.

One book that is very popular is “The Candle Maker’s Companion, which is helpful to new candle makers and those who are advanced crafters. For something a little easier to understand, you might want to look for a book called “the Encyclopedia of Candle Making Techniques”, which has been praised for it’s easy to understand illustrations and step-by-step guides.

For the already knowledgeable candle maker, you will want to look for more advanced books, that can help you learn new techniques and twists that can spice up your candle making experience, such as “The Complete Candle Maker Techniques, Projects, and Inspirations” book. You are provided with detailed pictures of each candle, easy to follow instructions, and some helpful tips and tricks that can help improve your overall techniques as well.

There are many, many books out there dedicated to the art of candle making, both for novice and advanced candle makers. No matter how skilled you are, you can always benefit from learning new information about your craft, so you should always be on the lookout for these books. Yard sales can also be a great place to find them, as well as library book sales.
