Gathering Magic Ingredients
Picking Your Wax
Okay, so first things first. Making candles is like baking cookies. You need special ingredients, and the main one is wax! Wax is like the dough for your candles. There are different types of wax, just like there are different types of ice cream. Some are hard, some are soft – it’s like choosing your favorite flavor!
Imagine your candles having superpowers – the power to make a room smell like a garden of flowers or a forest after rain. That’s what scents do! You can choose scents like vanilla (smells like ice cream) or lavender (smells like a sleepy hug).
Colors are like the magical dresses for your candles. You can make them any color you like! Imagine painting with your fingers – that’s how you add colors to your wax. Maybe a blue candle for the ocean lovers or a pink one for the dreamers!
Let’s Get Crafting! Making Your Candles

Remember those superpower scents? Now it’s time to add them to your melted wax. It’s like adding sprinkles to your ice cream. Stir it gently, and your wax will smell like a dream!
Pouring Colors – Creating a Rainbow in a Jar!
Time to make your candles look amazing! Remember the colors? You take them and pour them into your wax. It’s like making colorful layers in a jar. Swirl them around a bit – now you have a rainbow candle mix!

Imagine a fairy granting you a wish – that wish is like your profit! You add a little extra to the cost of making the candle. This helps you have money to buy more supplies or go on adventures!

Every castle has rules to keep it safe, right? Same with your business! Learn about the rules and laws for selling candles in your land. It keeps your magical castle secure.
