Heat-resistant Containers or Candle Jars: If learners intend to make container candles, they will need suitable heat-resistant containers or candle jars. Miscellaneous Supplies: Other supplies such as stirring utensils, a heat source (e.g., a heat gun or hairdryer for smoothing candle surfaces), and adhesive for attaching wicks may be required.
