Hi everyone,

 I want to learn to make candles, but I have nowhere near me to buy the wax and everything else...Does anyone have a good website they know to get everything I need?

What kind are easiest to make and any advice you have would be great!

Thanks in advance,

Thanks so much for the info!! We don't have a Micheals near us anymore,closest one is about 1 hour 45 mins away or more....We have a Hobby Lobby about 45 minutes from here but I checked out their stuff and IMO it sucked! The wax was very high and you had to by all the addatives separate...I found a few sites that the wax already has all that in 

I like easy, simple, and less stuff to add mean less to mess up! lol

I don't want to try gel or soy-based at all until I know I can do regular candles first....and I also like regular scented candles better myself.

I will check out the links...

I need something to do as I am trying to quit smoking and I want to get a little creative, but I am not a creative person. :)

I think candles will be good for me! lol

Thanks again!
