How to Make Candles is a beautiful book and will show you how to make your own candles in the comfort of your own home. With many to choose from that will add ambience in your home, help you relax, or make as gifts for your family and friends. Candle light is a wonderfully soft, mood enhancing and magical kind of light and candle maker Lesley Sparks' candles certainly set the right sort of atmosphere.

This delightful book is broken down into chapters starting with how to make the essential oils for the candle that you wish to make whether it is a tea light, a candle melt, or a candle in a glass or a tin. All the candles are made from natural waxes including soy wax. But what makes these candles extra special is the fragrance that comes from lighting a candle using essential oils and herbs on many different levels.

Lesley Sparks first started making candles when she was a child, after her father gave her a candle making
kit, but she didn’t return to this until four years ago when she decided to further her passion for candlelight by making candles herself. This quickly progressed on to a “Kitchen start-up business” where Lesley sold to
friends, family and at local farmers markets. Being interested in both the historical, holistic and the spiritual quality of candles and wanting to work with natural products only by using essential oils, she set up her own business.
This is now a small family run business, which focuses on making candles with a purpose, as well as fantastic aromas, and they supply to a selection of shops and museums, as well as selling online and at larger local
