Making candles is important to you so I am going to show you how to expand your candle making expertise. On top of that I’ll drop a few tips for you entrepreneurs on how to promote your own candle making business.

You should read the label on the wick packet and it will tell you what size wick you should use. There are also different types of wicks for paraffin wax versus soy or all natural wax. All of these things factor into what type of wick you should use. Experiment with these to find which types works for you.
