I thought I should post a complete candle making supplies list and where you can get them. If you only want to make jar candles, then of course skip any supplies that have to do with just votives or tarts/melts and vice versa. This list shows everything you need to start making soy candles in jars, tarts, votives and tealights.
I have listed Amazon as one place to buy some of the supplies. You’ll want to compare prices, but if you have Amazon Prime it could be more economical for you since you can get free shipping on prime items.

What I would also do is, if you have never tried the
Enchanted Lites American Soy Organics soy wax, see if you can get a 1lb sample each of the 100% container wax, millenium blend and votive wax so you can try out each one. With the fragrance oils, buy a few 1oz samples first and then only go with the ones that really stand out after testing.
Of course you can buy many of these candle making supplies at other candle making supply shops (you can also check out my list of trusted suppliers)
