Keeping the information offered as light and entertaining as it is informative, the book opens with an interesting overview of candles – ‘Much like other areas of modern life, we can also thank the ancients Romans for candles. They created their hand-dipped tallow candles in 500 BC. Tallow is the rendered fat from animals, like cows and sheep. The Romans obtained this fat and used it for their candles. For the wick, they used an unraveled piece of twine. This was the easiest and most inexpensive was to make candles during this time. The Romans began using candles for light, the reason being that it was cheaper and easier to obtain than olive oil in the Empire than animal fat…Ancient Rome is often credited for many modern inventions and technologies, but it was ancient China that created the very first candle in 221 BC during the Qin Dynasty…the candle remnants contained shale fat…’ This information provides ‘ideas’ for the nascent candle maker before even considering the start of a business!
The content of this book is laid out well by the author – ‘Throughout the entirety of this book, you will discover all there is to know about candle making and how to launch your very own candle-making business. Join me as we walk through what it takes to make you own candles on a somewhat large scale and how to thrive as a business owner in today’s world.’
Succinct and easy to understand, Doug Yimmer’s ‘home business’ book is a fine way to deal with the reality of needed income as well as the possibility of making dreams proving to be answers. Solid business creation guidance as well as reinforcement of our need to make income accompany our hobbies! Grady Harp, May 21
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book
The book begins with an interesting fact: "Much of the world doesn’t realize just how soothing and medicinal a candle can really be. When mixed with all-natural essential oils and soy wax, what is now a candle can double as a massage oil when lit, according to some new modern candle companies."
The history of candles with the ancient Romans is something I didn't know. The book goes into great details as to the equipment required and how to make candles, the different types of candles, waxes, and wicks that are used
today. Every aspect of starting a candle-making business is covered in the book.
I like the layout of the book and how easy it is to follow. I think this is a wonderful book and already I have imparted crucial information to my daughter in law which will make a tremendous difference in transforming her hobby into a small business.
The book warns against getting carried away. It says, "Starting your own business is nerve-racking, to say the least.
It’s not something you can decide one day and then accomplish the next. It takes careful consideration and many
hours of planning and research to launch a successful business in today’s economy."
When I make candles at home, I just use a regular pan and bowl, but if I was going to make candles in bulk for sale, I would need some specialized equipment. This book walks me through what equipment I need both for making the candles and for shipping/packaging. It even offers advice on different kinds of wax, wicks, fragrances, and how to create a business model that works for you.
In short, I highly recommend this book for anyone thinking of becoming a chandler (a word I learned from reading this book!).
