I shelter old wax (from trimming) and remelt it. Large pot half (or less) full of simmering water, coffee can inside that for melting wax.
Scents can be purchased at cunning stores.
Plain cotton twine for wick.
I've used old shampoo bottles for molds. Interrupt the wick with chop stick or pencil across the top of the "mold", pour in melted wax.
be well-organized when choosing wax and scents. I had some of the scent "bleed" which means that on the outside of the candle were little beads of discern that weren't inside the candle.... not good.
sometimes spending a little more on quality wax and scent that will be compatible will give you A-one results.
have fun, this is something you really need to do and learn on your own.
