"This book was exactly what I was looking for. It has very important information, tips and ideas that I have never seen or heard of before. Most candle books I've seen have been redundant, but your book broke the mold!"
- S.C., Bentonville, AZ
"Excellent book. I liked the spiritual comments laced throughout your book. The purple tone is nice. I have 400 pounds of glycerin, ten 40-pound buckets. Do you have any books or recommendations on glycerin candles & soaps? Especially using glycerin in candlemaking. Can you help? My father and brother make soaps, I?ve decided to do it also."
- Kurt W., Kellogg, ID
"Good book -- Just what I needed to get started after thinking about it for so long. It worked."
