This kit enables you to create up to 20 tea-cup sized container candles**. You provide the containers for this kit (eg tea cups) and will burn for up to 20 hours at around £1.50 each! This kit is ideal for:
Because container candles don't require the use of moulds (just basic kitchen equipment, containers and the contents of this kit) they are ideal for creating lots of candles quickly, simply and with consistent results.
The kit contains:
*You can add candle scent to your order, at up to 50% discount, by selecting from the options above.
You can select up to three scents, supplied in quantities of 50ml each - enough to scent around 1KG wax (depending on how strong you like your scent to be). So, if you want to scent all your candles then pick two or three.
Important: this kit does not include containers - it's intended for those occasions where you already have containers
** Obviously the number of candles you can make depends on how big the containers are!

Instructions are clear. Candle wax, dyes and scents easy to work with. The free pipette for scents is a good idea. But the Autumn Red dye seemed very pale at the recommended 1% level, and needed more to achieve a credible colour.

I had not made any candles before, but had a good idea of what to do, everything was in the parcel to get me started and the mini instruction videos were very useful, I was up and running making tea cup candles without a safety net.

Clear instructions and the wax was easy to break up (much better than wax previously purchased from a chain). Good service, well packaged and appreciated the hand-written note!

Having made my own votives, this wax was so brilliantly easy to use, and with perfect and easy to follow instructions! My only critiscism is that I really don't like the Mulled WIne scent that I bought to go with it, it is a little bit sickly sweet and synthetic. I'll be adding my own essential oils to the next batch. Apart from that, thank you for such a Brilliant service and a brilliant product. I shall be ordering more wax and wicks very soon!

Good kit. Relatively easy to work with considering this was my first go. I made half with little jam jars and half with cups and saucers. The jam jars were harder as narrower entry point for pouring and it would have been helpful for the kit to contain a small jug to dip in the saucepan and pour into the containers as pouring straight from the pan was inconceivable! I used an old pouring jug that originally came with an iron. Scents were very good and dye Purple Plum very good. Autumn red a bit paler than I was expecting even though I followed the ratio guidelines. On the whole they look great and the kit an instructions easy to follow and use.

Perfect amount of everything you need to comfortably make 20 cup candles, generous amounts of dye and wick too! Will definitely be buying again from here, thanks! :)

I bought a kit to make one candle in a tea cup and found it really easy and really good fun, so I decided to buy this pack to make more for my home as well as for Christmas presents for friends and family. There is plenty of wax, and more than enough wicks, etc. I added some rose scent and rose colour to my order and was pleased I did. The scent isn't overwhelming or sickly, it's really pleasant. So glad I have ordered from this company - they really seem to care how you get on. A handwritten note is within each thing I have ordered so far which is lovely. The only thing I would say is that I found the instructions on the single pack that I bought first were much clearer than in the larger box, but then I guess the company think that if you have gone for the larger box, then you know what you are doing.

Love this, on my second kit. Making candles to sell for our village hall Christmas Market. Easy to follow instructions and I found the Youtube video was a great help in getting started. Good to try different colours and fragrances, I've got cinnamon, cranberry and mulled wine, all smell really Christmassy. As always a great service, speedy delivery and helpful advice.

Received quicker than expected. Instructions also excellent and have made a couple of candles in vintage cups and saucers sourced from local antique fair. One is for a present and one is on my kitchen table.

I have just received my kit and cant wait to get started with it. Service very good and did like the personal message written at the bottom of order which gave it a very personal feel.I am sure once I get the knack of making the candles I will be back for more supplies
