Dear candle enthusiasts,
I'm thrilled to answer your question about fairy dust and its relation to candle making. Fairy dust is a magical ingredient that can add a touch of enchantment to your candles. It's a fine, glittery powder that can be sprinkled onto the surface of your candles to create a beautiful shimmering effect.
While fairy dust is not a necessary component for candle making, it can certainly elevate the aesthetic appeal of your creations. It adds a whimsical and ethereal quality to your candles, making them truly stand out.
There are different types of fairy dust available in the market, each with its own unique properties. Some fairy dust is made from biodegradable materials, making it eco-friendly and safe to use in your candles. Others may contain synthetic glitters, which can still create a stunning effect but may not be as environmentally friendly.
To use fairy dust in your candle making, simply sprinkle a small amount onto the surface of your candle before it completely sets. You can use a spoon or your fingers to gently distribute the dust evenly. Be sure to do this while the wax is still warm and pliable, as it will help the fairy dust adhere to the surface.
It's important to note that fairy dust is purely decorative and should not be used as a fragrance or coloring agent. If you're looking to add scent to your candles, I recommend using high-quality essential oils or fragrance oils specifically designed for candle making.
If you're interested in incorporating fairy dust into your candle making process, you can find it at various candle making supplies wholesalers or online retailers. They often come in a wide range of colors, allowing you to choose the perfect shade to complement your candle's design.

Happy candle making!
