Candle making business

Any individual can start candle making business on a small scale and part time basis . People light candle not only for religious purpose but also as a decor item. Raw materials for candle making The major two materials required in making candles are paraffin wax and wick. Other than raw materials you will need to have some equipment for candle making .These are melting pot ,thermometer, weight scale and an oven to melt the wax.

Candle manufacturing process

The manufacturing process is very simple . However the operating procedure of various candle making machines may differ . Normally you have to put thread in the indicated places . Then you need to pour the melted paraffin wax on it .If you are using average quality wax then add stearic acid . Within few minutes the wax will be coagulated . The final step is packing. For scented ,colourful decorative candles you will need to mix the colour and fragrance accordingly. There are mainly two ways of selling candles . One is physically distributing candles to local retailers and distributors. The other one is selling online. Finally if you are starting small with less capital investment its always advised to start with less manpower. As you grow your business then think of adding manpower. So this was about candle making business .
