Publisher Comments:

The rewards of making your own candles are many: it's a pleasant, easy craft activity for young and old; the results are attractive and practical; and homemade candles make distinctive gifts for all occasions. Based on charming English candle-making traditions, this delightfully inviting book offers a complete course in the craft, with a variety of projects including pillar, floating, votive, multi-wick, tea light, dipped, and rolled candles. Detailed information is given on a range of wicks, essential oils, colors, and perfumes, and advice on how to create unique blends to satisfy individual tastes.

Elaines previous books are Bath Bombs 9781861086150 and Soaps 9781861086457. Also available from the same Author - Soaps 9781861086457
