I use a lot of candles, both in my rituals and just because I like them. I usually buy them in a local Wiccan shop nearby, but I really think they would have more energy and meaning if I made them myself. Is it difficult to get started?
It's not really hard to make basic candles. Usually the hardest parts for me are waiting for the wax to get up to temperature and pouring the melted wax slowly enough to avoid little bubbles on the outside.
