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

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
