    Candle is one of the most popular household items in Nigerian home mainly for lighting, it could be used for decorations and other purposes. Candle is also used for festival and anniversaries. We all know that but, what we don’t know is that there is plenty money in candle production business in Nigeria.

    Materials for producing Candles are inexpensive thereby making it possible for average person who have the knowledge to invest in the business as heavy start up capital is not needed – just moderate investment.

    If you can start and increase you production with time, you could become employer of labor! Needless to say that Candle making is one of the businesses that has the potential to take you places.

    As you are planning to venture into candle making business, I would suggest you ask us questions to have a better understanding of what is involved before you jump into it.

    Apart from the money, Candle making is one of the most fascinating hobby for millions of people worldwide. Usually, candles are being made at home. I am talking about different types of candles here, both the regular white candle and the colored ones used for decoration.

    Materials Needed For Candle Production Business

    Candle Making Machine

    Candle Making Machine with 480 moulds pouring

    Three main raw materials are needed for candle production. These are the materials:

    Candle Wax – This is the major component which is the solid white matter that burn and melts when lighted. It is sold in the market in large pellets.

    Stearic Acid – This is the Crystalline fatty acid that is usually colorless and odorless.

    Stearic acid is the saturated fatty acid with an 18-carbon chain
    and has the IUPAC name octadecanoic acid. It is a waxy solid, and its
    chemical formula is CH3(CH2)16CO2H.

    Wick – This the thread you find at the middle of the candle

    Below is the full lists of the materials needed for different candles of different colors

    1. Paraffin wax

    2. White Beeswax

    3. Pyramid mold

    4. Watermelon fragrance oil

    5. Black/Gray concentrated liquid dye

    6. Red/pink concentrated liquid dye

    7. Hunter green concentrated liquid dye

    8. 24-ply flat braid wick

    9. Mold sealer

    10. Cookie sheet

    You can as well create scented candles with various designs by just being creative with your design.
