This is what the melting wax looks like. Using a double broiler OR if you don't have one like me you can stick one pan inside another pan that is larger.
I bought soy wax 444, wicks, and holders for the wicks. I ended up buying a whole string of the wicks rather than pre cut ones because it was so much cheaper and I will have more for the next time I make them. It can all be bought from most craft stores or from amazon.
For the jars I just used random ones I found around the house.
After the melting was complete I poured it into the jars and baby sat the wicks by keeping them straight until it had solidified enough to stand on their own. From what I understand from the directions each jar should burn for 6-8 hours. Not real pretty or fragrant but they'll work great the next time the power goes off in a storm. (Which happens a lot where we live)
