Pillar Moulds: How much wax should I use?

We currently stock a total of nine different pillar mould sizes and are frequently asked how much wax you should use for each size. Below, you will find a guide of how much wax to use for each of our pillar moulds. Whilst this is only a guide, as the amount of wax used depends on how high the mould is filled, the below measurements are a great reference point for calculating how much dye, fragrance oil, and wax to use for your candles.

Alongside general warning information, these labels also contain burning instructions and are suitable for both melts which are melted using a tealight burner or an electric burner. One important factor which we considered when developing these labels is that many wax melt safety labels which are available on the market advertise using an oil burner to melt their wax melts.

Because of this, we have designed these labels to comply with industry-leading recommendations and advice.
