Oven Beeswax Candles
Making beeswax candles in the oven means you have zero cleanup to do after!
Glass jars (I used wide mouth canning jars. But any oven proof glass container will work.)
Beeswax (big, big fan of beeswax pastilles – much easier to use than chopping up a big block of beeswax)
Place the wicks in the jar and fill with beeswax. If you’re totally lazy, don’t even bother gluing down the wick. Add more beeswax than you think you need – go all the way to the top. Once the wax melts it will fill in all of the tiny air spaces, and it won’t end up as full.
Heat oven to 200 degree F. Place the jars on a cookie sheet and stick them in the oven. You can fit about 9 candles on one sheet pan.
Remove candles when all of the wax has melted. This may take 45 minutes to an hour.
Position wick upright if needed by rolling the end around a pencil. Let cool until wax has hardened. Then trim the wick.
