SUMMARY- There is a small section devoted to the basics of candlemaking, and the rest is decorating ideas - many of which I found quite interesting. I especially liked the kitchen section. If you are primarily interested in candle-making technique, this isn't the right book, but if you're looking for decorating ideas, it's worth checking out.
