  1. If you only want parafin wax to melt and mold into candles, you can pick that up at any hardware store in the canning section – Canadian Tire, Home Hardware, Home Depot.

    If you want bee’s wax to roll into various candles, you need to go to the craft department of a store (Walmart) or to a craft store itself – Michael’s, White Rose, Lewiscraft

  2. any craft store will have chunks of wax that you can melt down. they will also have different oils for you to scent your candles. they will have books and molds too so you can go all out.

  3. Michaels Arts and Crafts has everything from giant slabs of pure wax, bee’s wax as well as scents, colorings, wicks and molds.
    If you have an eBay account, try looking there too, you can find great prices.

  4. Ever heard of YANKY CANDLE? It’s a store where they specialize in candles. You can usually find one in a shopping mall near you. But I’m more partial to looking it up on EBAY and charging it on my PAY PAL account. There ya go. and please be careful and don’t fall asleep during one of your candle burning seances.

  5. Hi,
    Sounds like you’re looking to just do this as a hobby.. if so, I’d pick up some wax at the craft store. If you were going to to do this as a business, than I’d suggest talking with a wholesale outlet. Lonestarcandle.com is a good wholesale supplier. But, just as a hobby, I’d recommend going to any craft store. Just make sure you get paraffin wax and not the canning wax. I’ve made several candles as gifts.. Its a fun hobby. If you yahoo “candle making” it will give you all sorts of fun sites to visit to get various ideas on how to make candles. Have fun!
