How it works
Making a candle in the Candle Maker is so easy, you don’t need a double boiler on the stove top, no thermometer required, no stirring, mixing or pouring jugs. Save all that gear for the big pours and large batch candle making! All the gear you need to make small batches of candles is incorporated into one nifty appliance.
Step 1 – add your soy wax (we recommend GW464 or S16) to the jug then press the first button and your wax will automatically be melted to the pre-set “add fragrance” temperature (this is calibrated for the Candle Creations range of fragrances)
Step 2 – a flashing light and beeper will alert you when it is time to add your fragrance, pour it in and press the button
Step 3 – when the last light flashes it is time to pour your wax into your jar.
Q. How much wax can the jug hold?
A. Up to 500mls of melted wax.
Q. What type of wax can I use?
A. The unit works best with GW464 or All Seasons Wax S16. It is not suitable for beeswax (yet).
Q. What is included with the Candle Maker on the Candle Creations website?
A. The base unit (heats and stirs your wax and fragrance) and the Chandlers jug. Plus an instruction booklet.
The Candle Maker has a 12 month warranty against any defects or faulty workmanship. However please note that the unit is designed for making soy candles using our range of soy waxes and fragrances. Any unintended use may void your warranty.

The story behind the product
The Candle Maker is the result of intensive research and development by Brian Simpson (whom many of you will know is the co-owner of Candle Creations). Having already sold thousands of candle making kits to budding candle makers across New Zealand, Brian noticed that a lot of home hobbyists struggled with getting the temperatures right, and that there was quite a lot of equipment and setup required just to make one or two candles. Surely there was an easier way? Brian researched the market and came up empty handed, so he decided to invent the machine himself. The end result is a unit that incorporates all of the traditional candle making equipment into one small appliance that controls the temperature and stirring during the key stages of the candle making process.
The product is due to be launched in the USA later this year as part of a retail brand called Chandler & Me and via our sister website. This brand includes pre-measured ingredients kits to go along with the Candle Maker, making life even easier. No more testing wicks, fragrance loads and pouring temps!

Having received many requests, Candle Creations customers can now purchase the Candle Maker (minus the ingredients pack) and then use your own bulk ingredients to create your own candle recipe’s.
We hope you have fun with this new product and that it helps you in your candle making adventures.
