Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The market for decorative candles continues to grow. UK-based author Stavert, who owns her own soap and candle company, presents a friendly introduction to the basics of making candles. She covers a variety of styles and techniques, including pillar candles, dipped candles, floating candles, and decorated candles, and offers information about essential oils and other fragrances. A range of decorative projects follows. Many of the candle-making books in library collections are dated—if yours needs refreshing, this is a good choice.
