Does it take a lot of energy to make candles?

    That depends on how they are made.  Candles made from paraffin or soy wax require heating of the wax and either pouring the melted wax into a mold or repeatedly dipping the wick into the heated wax.  You could alternatively make a beeswax candle which would require only wrapping a think layer of beeswax around a wick, that’s pretty low energy consumption. 

    Industrial candle production likely uses a lot of energy to quickly and efficiently manufacturer candles for the market.  Determining how much energy is used would be highly dependent on the type of and size of candle as well as the individual manufacturer.
