Candle Wax & Cores

There are two main types of candle wax - pillar wax and container wax.

Use container wax for pouring into containers such as tins or jars.  Whereas pillar wax is used for the traditional type of tall pillar candle.

Make Container Candles like the professionals by using premade candle cores.

The candle cores are made from white paraffin wax and come complete with the hole already made ready for you to add your wick into.  No more fiddly glue guns to stick the sustainer in place, no more lining up of the wick - by using a candle core you are eliminating all these problems.

Simply put the candle core into your container and pour your own wax around it to cover it completely.  This enables you to make your candles quickly and efficiently with less wax and less fragrance.  You can also stack two cores on one wick - simply slide them down the wick to make a taller candle.

As the completed candle burns, the core burns with it and it becomes part of the candle.  

Made in the UK.
