    Candle Making Supplies in Hong Kong

    I found one old thread and strangely, it was closed

    Does anyone know where to buy some wax & wick and other similar candle making supplies? I can get them mail order but I'm hoping to find some hole in the wall shop in SSP or MK or similar

    Soap making isn't the same as wax making, but there is this shop in Sheung Wan that sells essential oils and all kinds of things in bulk. Not sure if they have wax (I can imagine they do) and wicks (bit doubtful they would). It's on Jervois St., not far from Morrison, next to Barista Jam. Might be worth having a look at it if you're ever in the area.

    If you happen to know any places that sell any type of candle wax, in Hong Kong, at a reasonable price, feel free to share it.

    surely, the best way is to buy cheapest tealight candles and melt them in pan, then use a mould to shape them

    Ikea sell cheap tealights

    http://www.ikea.com/hk/en/catalog/products/00144937/

    this place also sells candles apparently in wholesale prices, probably has wicks as well

    http://unikingcandle.com/collections1.htm

    this is nice pictured weblink of home made candles ( sadly in Chinese, but plenty of pictures)
