Blog 197: How to make a great soy candle

Synopsis of the book from Goodreads
Amber Richards made her own jar soy candles and operated a home based business with those candles for many years. In this book, it details how to make great quality soy container candles, it is specific to this type of candle only. She also shares her favorite candle suppliers, finding this was the one question that was asked most. This book is not about the business aspect of candle making, nor does it contain photos, but explains the creative process of how to make the candles. 

It also explains proper burning techniques and what exactly makes a great quality candle. 

Candle making can be an enjoyable and relaxing activity, whether you are making them for yourself or gifts for friends and family.

My Review
Cover: I liked the cover of this book, mainly because it shows you a glimpse into what the book is talking about. With this cover, it is showing one of the many procedures in making jar soy candles.

Things that I liked: I did like the fact that this book was informational towards the process of making jar soy candles. It talks about what goes into making the candles and everything. It gives you some websites on where you can get your supplies for making the candles. I enjoyed reading about what goes into making the candles. How you have to take notes on when you make the candles for future reference as there is no set formula when making the candles due to many variables. Wick size, jar size, fragrances, etc.

Things that I didn't like: This is by no means a step by step guide on how to make the candles. It just tells you about what goes into making the candles. 

Overall: I liked it. I did rate it 3 out of 5 stars, because the book wasn't what I expected to it to be. Maybe if there were some examples or even pictures to break up the text that would have been fine too. But it was informative.
