We have changed web hosting companies and feel our website will be improving and a lot faster.

We now carry Emulsifying wax, Emulsifying wax is one of the essential ingredients in making lotions and creams. Think of it as the “glue” that will hold your recipe together. We’ve all seen how oily salad dressings separate after sitting for a while. You then shake the bottle until it appears to be mixed, but if you look at it closely, you will see little balls of the oil suspended in the liquid. Left to sit, the dressing will again separate into its different properties. Lotions and creams are created from a mixture of water and oils. Without the addition of emulsifying wax, they too would separate back into water and oils.

We currently have 1 - used 120 lb water jacketed wax melter in stock. $800.00, can be viewed in swancam 1 and swancam 2.

In an effort to improve the ability to navigate throughout the Swans Candles web site there has been many changes made. In most cases, it is not necessary to scroll down the various index pages in order to see what is contained in a particular section. Hopefully, making it easier to find what you are looking for. The latest change has been to add an online search capability. Now, all you have to do is type the name of the item you are looking for in the search box, click on the "Go" button and if it is a item that that is listed on our web site, you will whisked to the location of the page pronto!!!

We are excited about the "White Birch" Log candles that have just arrived, they are so realistic.

Check out the two new pages in the "Candle Accessories Department" called "Misc Candle Accessories" and "Bobeches".

The "Bobeches" page lists 20 different bobeches.

The Candle Craft Section has been expanded to include four new pages titled "Frangrance Flash Points". Customers that make Gel Candles have an interest in the flash point of the scents they are using, so we are making that information available. The pages are still under construction as we are adding more "Flash Points" as they come in from our suppliers.

Many of the items that you find on our web site and in our store are the result of requests from customers. It is our policy to listen to what our customers have to say and if possible respond to their desires.

Time permitting we plan on updating this page once a month or sooner if something exciting happens.
