Hi Cindy,

I looked on the 1 lbs. package for the soy wax and it doesn’t say how much it yields. I remember that it takes a lot more wax than you think because it decreases in volume dramatically once it’s poured. My suggestion for 40 candles is to underbuy and start off with two-three lbs of wax. Once you start the process you’ll be better able to gage how much wax your project is using, and you can buy more accordingly.

Hope this helps! Making the candles is really, really fun!
