I do not know how much you are wanting to make, but about 7 years ago I got a starter kit on making candles. I love candles & spend so much money on them. Ever since I have been making homemade soy candles. I do have my own home daycare & making candles is just a hobby. I do have a list of about 20 people that order from me when they need more. In addition to this every holiday like Mothers Day, Easter, Valentines day I make about 40 candles & find people to take them to work & sell them. the average price is $8.00 so if you do the math that is about $300.00. I offer free candles to the people that take them to sell. Starting around Halloween it is a good season for candles. With Thanksgiving & Christmas I make around 200-300 candles & even put together candle baskets for Christmas. If you do the math, well you get it. Now I only do this 1/4 time if that & if you were able to put more time into it you could make some good money. Everyone loves candles!!! There is minimal money to start & your first order will basically pay for what you put out. So you are 100% profit after you sell your first batch. It did take a little while to build my list. I started with my friends & family. My sons school had fundrasing boutiques and carnivals which allowed me to set up a booth. I had one of my mothers from my daycare work at the YMCA and she would take a batch every holiday. My son plays sports and ever year you meet new moms and they love my candles. I also work the snack bar for baseball and they let me put out my candles there. Let me know if you are interested and I can give you a run down of what you need and how much you need to start and who to buy everything from.
