This review is from: Natural Soy Wax Candle Making Kit (Office Product) First off, the value is incredible! I got this for $15 dollars and usually the pouring pot, (which is really nice and it’s one of the big ones), is more than $15 all on it’s own. There is enough wicks for all of the containers they give you and both the wicks and containers are good quality. They give you some pearberry scent and green dye squares too. The pearberry scent isn’t all that strong, but it is nice and fresh..good for a first-time project. The only thing I’m not crazy about is that there isn’t any product description in the entire thing. I would like to know what I’m using to make these. I want to know what kind of soy wax and most importantly what kind of wicks they give you. Zinc core wicks can be harmful so I want to make sure I’m not poisoning anyone if i choose to use them. Also I ordered a pound of beeswax from this company, and instead of getting the 1 lb block I ordered, I got one of those sheets of beeswax which was “yellow” like the beeswax block I ordered, but it was also a very unnatural color of yellow. Like a pale lemon color..it was just weird, it looked like it was bleached then dyed yellow again. So I don’t think I will be re-ordering a block from them based on the quality of the beeswax I’ve seen so far. Other than that this is a REALLY good starter kit, it arrived on time and in great condition(the company didn’t use any bubble wrap/Styrofoam in packaging, always a plus:)) I’m happy with the product and I can’t wait to start making candles:) 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (2) Reply 29 of 33 people found the following review helpful Very handy kit-easy to use!, September 30, 2012 By Bobbi L. – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Natural Soy Wax Candle Making Kit (Office Product) This kit is really great for someone like myself who had zero idea how to make a candle. The instructions were clear and helpful. My only complaint was that the instructions tell you what to do and when at certain temperatures of the wax but there wasn’t a thermometer in the kit and I didn’t have one. I just winged it and my second try worked. Another thing to note which isn’t anyone’s fault but the natural soy wax has a but of an odd smell to it so you’ll want to use a scent and this kit only came with one that wasn’t to my taste. If I had known ahead of time I would also buy a pack of scents along with it. Other thn that, this kit is perfect for a new candle maker. I bought extra wax and have been filling every candle holder I can get my hands on! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 13 of 13 people found the following review helpful Nice beginning kit, July 22, 2013 By Susan B “sb” (North Carolina, USA) – This review is from: Natural Soy Wax Candle Making Kit (Office Product) Recently used this kit for the first time and found it to be relatively easy, except that the instructions could have been more complete. The pouring pot is reusable, of course, but would have been good to know about needing a larger pot to set it in beforehand. (Never put it on direct heat source). Also didn’t know that candles often sink down sometimes and to keep a small amount of wax on-hand to fill in after they set. (now you know) Amazon has a great companion book (or two) for starting candle-making. Get one with it. Overall, I didn’t have much trouble, and now I know what to expect. My first candles came out fairly well. Knowing to read about beginning candle-making, this is a nice kit. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
