Beeswax Candles



  1. Place beeswax into one large can or divide evenly between two smaller cans.
  2. Fill a small sauce pan with 2 inches of water and place your can in the center. Turn the burner to medium-low heat and keep a close eye on your beeswax while it melts.
  3. While you're waiting for the wax to melt, set up your wicks. I took a piece of masking tape and punched a small hole in the center with a sharp knife. Then I slid my wick through the hole, centered the tape over the top of one of the jars and secured it to both sides.
  4. Once your beeswax has melted, turn off the heat and add your coconut oil. Finally, add about 20 drops of each of your essential oils and stir with a popsicle stick or plastic spoon.
  5. Pour the wax into two 12-ounce glass jars.
  6. If desired, wait a few minutes for the wax to set up slightly and submerge a few fresh herbs into the wax to give it a pretty, earthy look.
  7. Let your candles cool on the counter (to avoid cracking, do not put your candles in the refrigerator) for 5 or 6 hours before trimming the wicks.
