Only ordered 8 candles - 1 of the Jars was broken even though they were wrapped in bubble wrap. Didn't bother to send back. Found some better ones at Meijer that smelled better for 1/2 the price. Probably will not order any more.

Hi Amy, I'm so sorry that it broke in transit! I'm glad you brought this to our attention. I've sent you an email in regards to getting a replacement out to you.

Shipped quickly and candle smells great!!

Happy Customer

We just love the fragrance of our two Vanilla Latte candles. They burn so clean. I would love to get or make the cinnamon candle. We helped my niece with a fund raiser this month but the cinnamon candle was not available. Love that these candles are Michigan/USA made!!!

Hi Bette! Thank you for this awesome review! If you make your way to our store, you might just be able to make a cinnamon candle while waiting for them to be in production again :)

Congrats on receiving your DIY Candle Making Kit from Kalamazoo Candle Company! Are you ready to get cooking? Let's go. All you need are two pots (one larger, one smaller and that you don't mind being coated in wax forever), a burner, and something to stir with. We also highly recommend using a thermometer. 

  1. Melt the wax (1lb) using a double boiler. The best way to go about this to dump the wax into your small pot (old coffee cans also work well in place of the small pot), fill the large pot half full with water and set the small pot inside the larger. If you notice a lot of the water evaporating while heating, feel free to add more water to the large pot. If using a thermometer, keep in small pot to monitor the temperature of the wax. 
  2. While your wax is melting on the burner, add your fragrance oil directly into your candle jar.
  3. Once the wax is fully melted (for safety purposes, wax shouldn't be over 175 degrees), pour into your candle jar leaving about 1/2" to 3/4" room at the top for the wick and lid. 
  4. Slowly stir the wax and fragrance oil mixture for about two minutes ensuring they are fully blended. 
  5. Set and center the wick in the jar and you're done (it helps to straighten the wick as best you can before putting it into the jar)! Give yourself a pat on the back - You just made your own Kalamazoo Candle Company Candle.
