If you want to get into the soy jar candle business, How to Make a Great Soy Jar Candle: Revealing My Favourite Candle Suppliers by Amber Richards is the book for you. It doesn't cover the business aspect of it, but the actual making of the candles. The book covers proper candle burning techniques, what supplies are required for making the soy candles by getting into the details of materials needed, and a list of Richards’ favourite suppliers. They are based in the US so the advice is to check if they ship outside the US for those who need it. Other topics covered are: advice on wax melting techniques and choosing the best glass jar containers and the actual candle making process. The latter involves taking notes on materials and quantities, tips on choosing the right wick, as well as pouring the mix technique.

Easy to read and understand, it is a book that can be read again and again until you learn or you can read it while practising until you get your candle making process right. Written from Richards’ personal perspective, the book is packed with helpful tips on this craft.
