How we started.   As a marketing manager and candle buyer for a large importer one of the owner's got to see all kinds of wonderful candles.  Wanting to try her hand at them herself, she bought a starter kit from a candle supplier - and was smitten!  Thus the idea for starting a candle company was born. However, when researching and attempting to buy supplies direct from the manufacturers it was realized that minimum orders would be prohibitive for most candlemakers and the frustration of importing would put most people off.  That's when we changed course! Instead of making candles we decided to create a fully comprehensive candle and soapmaking supply company here in Canada.
 
In January 2003 we went online with our first shopping cart . In that short time we have made a mark in the candle supply market with over 40,000 orders shipped since its conception.

We offer better than retail prices (have you checked out that "Big Box Craft Store" lately? - $25.99 for 6 votive molds - ours are $9.00 for six!) 

The site is ever evolving and new products are added on a regular basis - so come back and check us out. In fact, sign up for our newsletter on the side bar of this site. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter by clicking the links.
Your suggestions and comments are welcome. If you can't find what you are looking for here, send an email and we'll try and source it for you.
 

 Canwax carries paraffin wax from IGI and several vegetable/soy based waxes. Working with some of the top fragrance suppliers we have stocked over 300 quality fragrances starting at $17.00 for a single pound.  If they don’t have the fragrance you want in stock we will source it for you.  We have over 27 colours of dye blocks and liquid dyes. Prices are based on quantity bought with discounts for volume. Canwax has many Monthly Specials and offers.

Fun Fact: We have sold over 2,000 lbs of French Vanilla!
 
Happy Candle and Soap Making!
