I love candles because they can be used in many ways. For some, it can be the perfect gift, while other times it can be used as a simple decoration added towards a room. Once a candle is lit up, it has the ability to add a great ambiance towards a home. For all those that want a candle in their house, whether it being used as a decoration or to light up the room, here is a perfect and easy way to make an eco friendly beeswax candle.
However, before I get started on explaining the proper steps to making a beeswax candle, I first want to discuss why beeswax candles are better to make then regular wax candles.
Why choose Beeswax:
-Burn brighter, longer, and cleaner
-Gives off little smoke
-Smells great and has a natural honey smell
-Great for those that are sensitive to perfume
Now it is time to make some candles!
Materials: Enough beeswax to fill container (easy to use in pellets or blocks)
-Essential oil (10-12 drops per every 5.5 ounces of wax)-optional
-One wick (not lead)
-Melt your beeswax in a double boiler. You do not want it to be in direct contact with the heat
Once it melts, dip the metal part of the wick in the melted wax
Use the hot wax to secure the wick to the bottom of the glass container
Let the wax cool down then add the essential oils. Pour the wax into the container.
Let it cool down before using and then trim the wick.
You got yourself a beeswax candle!
