Only a few people are interested in launching a candle fundraiser because few people know how to make candles. Candle making does not require a lot of money because the materials are not costly.

If you wish to set up your own candle fundraiser activity, you will need some people to help you with the candle making. If you can find people or students who can volunteer to make candles for free, it would help the bottom line. Keep in mind that you are holding a fundraiser activity and hiring workers to be paid will eat up all the profits. How can you earn when you have a lot of expenses? You need to understand that what you gain from candle selling is not that much. Think of the money you can save if you did not hire workers.

Ask for volunteers as they are more likely to be interested and are the ones who can help you meet the success of the activity. Let them feel that making candles for a purpose lightens the burden.

If you want to get started with your candle fundraiser, think of your purpose. It may be a fundraising for a charity or fundraising for the improvement of your church. You should know your purpose so that you will know how much money you would like to raise. Estimate the profit you will need to make so you can estimate how many candles you will need to make for the event.

Make sure that your volunteers are well instructed and that they know what they are doing. Encourage them to use their creative ideas to bring out the best in them. Let them know that it is not just about candle making but making candles with style that the people will love and appreciate and most importantly, want to buy!

Of course in any fundraising or business, you need to have enough money to start so that things run smoothly. You can set up an estimate cost by considering the type of candles you wish to make, whether you want candles made out of bees wax or paraffin candles. The production costs of paraffin candles is lower that that of bees wax. If you don’t have a very big budget, then paraffin candles are your best bet.

If you don’t have enough knowledge on how to start a simple candle fundraiser, you can ask people who have done one already. Make sure that you know how to handle the profits wisely and minimize spending. You will see that your fundraising activity is successful.

A BURNING CANDLE CAN REALLY COZY A HOUSE UP, ESPECIALLY DURING THE WINTER MONTHS.  LEARN HOW TO MAKE THE EASIEST BEESWAX CANDLES WITH THIS VIDEO TUTORIAL AND THESE SIMPLE WRITTEN INSTRUCTIONS. 

I used to burn candles all the time.  Then I came across an article about the toxins found in the wax and wicks.  Well, there went that and all the candles!

My husband always gets nervous when I’m up googling, because usually it results in something else in our home being unhealthy.  No, we can’t be perfect and we definitely don’t have a perfectly toxic free home.  But I am going to try my best!

Most the time I just run the diffusers to get the scent I want, but having a candle burning just adds an extra cozy touch.  Don’t let candle making overwhelm you, as it did me for a long time, because it is actually a very simple process.

THE EASIEST BEESWAX CANDLE RECIPE 

 INGREDIENTS

1 pound beeswax
1/2 cup coconut oil
6 4 ounce mason jars (or 3 1/2 pint mason jars or old coffee mugs)
Candle Wicks
Metal pitcher or old coffee tin
Large Pot that will fit your metal pitcher (or metal container you are using)
Bamboo Skewers or pencils
Essential oils (optional, my favorite combinations are listed below)

INSTRUCTIONS

Pour the beeswax into a metal pitcher or old coffee can.  I suggest using a metal container that you can throw away when you are done, because it is next to impossible to clean beeswax out of dishes.  I am using an old popcorn tin.

Place the metal container into a large pot of water and bring to a boil.  This is your double boiler!  Turn heat down to medium and stir occasionally until all the beeswax is melted. Be sure that the water doesn’t splash into the beeswax container.

Once the beeswax is completely melted, remove from heat and stir in the coconut oil.  Stir until the coconut oil is melted and incorporated. (This helps the beeswax is burn slower and makes your candle last longer.)

Add in 30-50 drops of essential oils of choice if you want to make a scented candle.  This is optional.

Secure a wick at the bottom of the mason jar with a little glue and then fill the jar with the melted wax and coconut oil. Leave about an inch of room at the top of the jar.

Use a pencil or bamboo skewers to tie the wick around and place over the jar.  This will keep the wick in the center while the wax hardens. (See video tutorial)

Once the wax is completely hardened you can trim the wick and it is ready to lite.  It is best for it to be about 1/2 inch long.

ESSENTIAL OILS 

If you are making candles to scent your house it is going to take a lot of essential oils.  It would be more cost effective to use a diffuser if you are trying to get a certain aroma to fill the home.
You can use essential oils in your candles and they do let off a scent, but you will have to add about 30-50 drops of essential oils per candle.  I personally rather not use that much essential oil in a candle, and instead add 4-6 drops to a diffuser.
The trick is to add the essential oils when the wax is still hot and not hardened, but not so hot that the essential oils evaporate.  Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly before adding the essential oils and then stir them in.

I prefer to light a unscented candle for the cozy feel and run my diffuser to get the scent.  This allows you to get more of the aromatic benefits and still gives you a nice smelling, cozy home.

If you decide to add essential oils to your candles here are some combinations that smell really nice together:

Bergamont + Wild Orange + Lime

Geranium + Lemongrass

Peppermint + Lemon + Wild Orange

Cassia + Cinnamon + Siberian Fir (This is a great one for Christmas!)

Lavender + Sandalwood + Vetiver + Patchouli

Rosemary + Juniper Berry + Tangerine

Article Body: Scented candles are the invention of our modern times, being used in aromatherapy and relaxation. To a certain extent, scented candles are the proof of the way necessity becomes a need for comfort over time. The first known candles appeared out of man’s need to keep light in the house, and later their usage expanded to the religious rites. But from that till the relaxation purposes scented candles serve today, it’s quite a distance.

The use of scented candles in our times

The fact is that scented candles have not a religious but an ambiance role. Quality wax candles are primary used in churches all over the world, as they symbolise the divine light that Christ brought to this world. Scented candles release a pleasant smell when burned, and their role extended to aromatherapy applications.

However, they are also used for bringing freshness to our homes. It is a known fact that candles reduce unpleasant smells from a room, for example tobacco smoke is eliminated successfully by a burning candle.

If we combine the classical candle with some aromatic oil or essence we obtain a very satisfactory result, on the one hand disturbing smells are eliminated by the burning candle and on the other hand the room atmosphere is filled with a lovely smell. The longer it burns the more perfumed the chamber will be.

Scented candles are a very good solution for cleaning and refreshing the air in your house, if a romantic or discrete atmosphere is to be made this is the perfect solution. There are scented candles used even for keeping mosquitoes out, the powerfully scented ones like citronella will probably protect your rooms from unpleasant invaders.

Are scented candles a symbol of romance?

In the past scented candles were associated with luxury and extravagance, only the richest people afforded to use them. In our modern days their price is accessible to everyone and this is quite a good thing given the positive effect scented candles can have on our feelings, mood or psyche in general.

It is a common idea to associate scented candles with romance. For instance, floating candles are the romantic type that create an intimate and warm atmosphere, not only by their scents but also by their intriguing aspect. The cooler water keeps the wax from becoming too liquid and keeps it burning at a moderate rate. You can check on results on yourself!

If you have children in your home, chances are you have an abundance of worn down crayons that don’t get used much anymore. Before throwing them out and buying new ones, consider using them to make candles. This can be a great way to turn them into something new and bright again. Most children will love the idea of creating candles with you and enjoy knowing their old crayons helped create them. Making candles out of crayons can also be a great gift giving idea.

Before you get started, discuss safety with your children. Since the crayons will have to be melted at a very high heat, they will not be able to participate in that portion of the candle making process. Assure them that there are many other aspects of the candle making that they can be a part of. To start, gather your supplies. In addition to the crayons, you will need a wax cartoon. This can be from milk, fabric softener, or orange juice. You will also need paraffin wax, two full ice cube trays, a double boiler, and white packing string. If you don’t want to use your double boiler an old coffee can and a saucepan will work just as well.

Trim the top off of the wax carton, leaving it approximately six inches high. You will want to cut the string at least 8 inches long. You will later cut the wick to fit the holder. To ensure a wick that burns easier take three pieces and bread them together. Use smaller pieces of string to tie the ends together. The holders for your candles can be anything you desire as long as they are non-flammable. Pretty vases, glasses, and jars work nicely.

Melt about three pounds of paraffin wax in the double boiler or coffee can. To help it melt faster, cut it into small chunks. The melting process with take about fifteen to twenty minutes. While the wax is melting, peel the papers off of the old crayons. You and your children can choose to separate the colors by lights and darks to have a mix that melds well or you can mix it all together and see what the color ends up being.

For best results, only add the crayons to the wax after it has completely melted. After the crayons and wax have both melted together, immediately remove the mixture from the stove and pour into your candle holders. If you would like to make scented candles try adding a splash of cinnamon or vanilla to your hot wax mixture.

It is important that the candles by left alone to completely harden. Make sure you have an area this can be done without disruption. It is also important to make sure small children can’t reach them, as out of curiosity they may want to check on their candles. The wax will stay hot for several hours and can scold the skin.

Making candles out of old crayons is a great way to spend the afternoon creating a neat project with your children. This process can also be done at schools and childcare centers with old crayons as presents for parents. Simply allow each child to decorate the outside of their candle holder while adults complete the rest of the process.

Candles have never been so popular. Candles are now a must, whatever may be the occasion. You have aromatic candles, candles made up of beeswax, and paraffin. The candle industry is witnessing an unprecedented boom, thanks to the candle wholesalers for playing a large part of this phenomenal growth.

As in the case with other wholesalers, candle wholesalers purchase these candles in bulk quantities from manufacturers at a markup price. The wholesaler then sells these candles, keeping a percentage, to the retailer, who in turn sells these candles ultimately to the consumer.

This chain or distribution channel regulates the market prices and determines the end price of any product. Candles are no different. Dinner candles, church candles, scented candles, you name it and leading wholesalers always maintain large inventories of these products. Needless to say, they have even larger inventories of particular types of candles, which have greater demand, aromatic candles for instance. If you are a candle retailer, looking forward to getting fabulous discounts from wholesalers, you have every chance of getting one. Just visit the online resources of leading candle wholesalers and find out what they are offering. You can get the entire information on the kind of candles they have to offer and importantly at what price do they offer. Once you establish a connection with one of these leading wholesalers, your job becomes easy. In the bargain, many a wholesaler might pass on these discounts to you, the retailer.

A single wholesaler may have all types of candles. Sometimes certain wholesalers have only one type or brand of candles. They are also responsible for the local promotion of the brand to a large extent. Candle wholesalers have good working relationships with both manufacturers and retailers. It always helps them to maintain a certain stronghold on the business.
