How To Make Homemade Beeswax Candles  

Posted in

I have to try this! I love candles but don't love the hunting I have to do to find the right brand! I stumbled upon this tutorial on how to make homemade beeswax candles and now I can't wait to try it!

You need:
  • Beeswax Pastilles (used 1/2c.) 
  • Glass jar(s) 
  • Double Boiler
  • Cotton wick 
  • Chopstick 
Wash out your jar and dry thoroughly.
Cut your wick to the size of the jar, leaving a bit extra to tie around the chopstick.
Tie the wick on the chopstick and place it over the jar to make sure the wick stays in the center.
In a double boiler, melt down the beeswax pastilles until fully liquid.
Gently pour your liquid beeswax around the wick until it gets to the top of the jar.
Let sit until the wax is fully cooled and hardened.
Remove the chopstick and trim the wick to your liking.

Thanks to The Dabblist for this awesome recipe!
