This kit went well beyond my expectations. When I first opened the box (which arrived in it's own NICE white box-great for storing items when not in use) it seemed a bit daunting. But then, I read through the directions-and realized how easy it was!
The pot was a huge help! My friend really didn't want to ruin any of her good cookware- so I love that it came with this. We started by boiling water in a large pot-seems obvious now-but we didn't know at the time how much water to use, so before boiling I would suggest you place the melting pot in a pot you are using for the double boil set up to make sure you don't have water boiling over. A HUGE compliment I have to give is the handle to the melting pot. It kept the pot in place while we melted the wax in boiling water.
The wax: SOY! Score! Just as the product picture shows-it comes in 4 one pound bags. You use each bag at a time to make three candles.
The wicks and glue dots were super easy to put into the jars (which come with lids! BONUS!)
Once the wax was melted- we weren't quite sure if we should turn off the heat or remove the melting pot completely. The directions weren't very clear about this- but luckily it does come with the thermometer (which also has a handle so you can keep it on the side of the melting pot). Eventually, we discovered that by turning off the heat and leaving the melting pot in the hot water we got the temperature right to melt the color diamonds in the soy wax. That only takes about 1-2 minutes. THEN, we took the melting pot completely out of the water. It took a few times for us to figure out how long the temp. would drop low enough (but not too low) to put in the fragrance.
Fragrance-it came with 4 bottles but only 3 different scents. Would have liked four different scents. HOWEVER- they smell AMAZING! Everyone that came by over Memorial Day weekend was shocked that we made them and how great they smelled!
When it comes to measuring the temp of the wax, I imagine this depends on the temp. of your own home. It was 76 degrees F in her house and took about 10-15 min. for the temp of the wax to go from 175 down to 140. With one set (3 candles), we poured when the wax was too hot and that caused the glue dots to melt, kind of leaving the wicks floating about. HOWEVER- with the help of the wick holders we were still able to line them up pretty straight in the wax. We continued the whole process four times to make all 12 candles. By the time we ready for the next set-we were able to remove the wick holders to use again (the wax had cooled just enough for them to stay in place-but this isn't something I would necessarily recommend- you should probably wait longer just to ensure that the wicks stay in place)
I tested ONE candle with my own essential oils. I had to let the temp of wax drop even lower to make sure the oil fully mixed with the wax.
We NOT SO PATIENTLY waited 24 hours before we trimmed the wicks and put the warning stickers on the bottom-AND BURNED THEM!
It was such a treat! We absolutely loved all the colors and scents. I HIGHLY recommend this kit- especially at this price because it gives you all the materials you need to get started if you have never made your own candles. I left the materials with my friend and purchased ANOTHER kit for my home!
My ONLY complaint is the directions could have been a little bit more clear. It was definetly a "let's try it and see" kind of thing.
Included but not limited to:
You receive Four 1lb bags of Soy Wax.
You receive Four 1oz bottles of fragrances.
1 bag of soy wax mixes perfectly with 1 bottle of fragrances.
One bag of wax fills 3 tins.
You receive 12 tins total.
You receive 3 wick straighteners
Given that information, it's only really practical to make 3 candles at a time, 4 times to complete the 12 in the set unless you buy more wick straighteners or use a pencil to hold the wicks up, as the cooling process takes longer than heating up the wax to the appropriate temps and adding color/fragrances. You could also wait for them to cool a bit then remove the straighteners like I did and use them on the next batch.
It's important to read the simple to follow instructions and to add the color / fragrance at the appropriate temperature. Colors should be added at 175F and the fragrance at 140F. Once the fragrance is in, stir well and pour carefully to the line at the top of the tin so the measurements are consistent. I did not weigh my wax but each bag filled the 3 tins up to the line.
To those who complain the thermometer was broken, while I have no doubt it could break during shipping, I found it odd people took the thermometer with broken glass and all out of the package just to take a picture of it...more likely they broke it themselves as you do have to be careful with it. In the future I would buy a Bluetooth thermometer as it is more accurate anyway and you can get notifications on your phone when it hits the temps you set.
The value of this kit is really good too, if you were to buy these individually you'll pay more. The only "reusable" part of this kit after you've made the 12 candles is the pouring pitcher, the 3 wick straighteners, and the thermometer. I was given 3 extra wicks which was nice in case something went wrong you would have some backup, but I was not given enough glue dots. This wasn't a big deal since I just dipped the base into hot wax and used that to secure the wick into the tin. In the future I'll do this anyway since it's convenient and you don't have one extra material to deal with or pay for.
The last thing to note is the color chips are all black on the exterior except for orange. They do come labeled, but if you take them out and mix them around you'll never be able to tell the difference between the red and turquoise for example. Just make sure you keep them in their bags. I also didn't use all of the chips, so in this regard you can mix and match your own colors although they do tell you which chips to throw in when making each scent.
I wouldn't consider myself a crafty person but I think I'll have a lot more fun making up my own candle scents with mixtures of fragrances and using different jars.
Overall, I think this kit was definitely worth it. I had a lot of fun and now I have the confidence to start throwing in my own styles and making them unique.
Note that this is the summer/spring kit. Candlewic also has 2 other kits for Fall and Winter. I was hesitant to used a whole bottle of fragance because it smelled very strong, but I did anyway and it turned out great. The smell was not as strong when you actually lit the candle.
I wasn't a big fan of their color choices so I didn't follow that part of the instruction.... I cut all of the color chips in half and only used half of green (gives pale green), half red (gives pink). I mixed half blue and half red to make purple.
