We make shopping for your candle-making supplies a bit easier as we carry a variety of products that will fulfill your candle making needs.

To begin I'd like to start by telling you that when you first begin crafting your candles it’s more than ok to ask questions and it’s important that you do so in order to ensure you're not only crafting safely but in the best way possible! It’s also important that you know there are many waxes, wicks, fragrances and candle vessels out there for you to use but here I'll tell you what products are best to use when you first begin making candles.

  1. G1 Superior 100% Soy Wax: Start by first choosing your wax, we recommend that a good reliable and natural wax for beginners is our G1 Superior Soy wax. Soy wax is a very good wax not only because it is a natural product but because of its clean burn and great adhesion to glass containers.

2.  Fragrance Oils: Here at General Wax & Candle Co. We carry a variety of different high quality fragrances that are GMO free. Both of our regular and ultra fragrances are great for beginners.
