Beeswax Rolled Candle Making

Beeswax Rolled Candle Making

Beeswax candles are my personal favorite kind of candle. They have a warm, natural glow that is unmatched by any other type of candle. Not to mention, beeswax candles are environmentally friendly and non-toxic.

There are a few different ways to make beeswax candles, but the most common is by rolling them. This tutorial will show you how to make beeswax candles using this method.



What you will need:

Beeswax

Waxed paper

Something to help you roll the candle (I use a chopstick)

A candle wick

Step 1: Cut the beeswax

First, you will need to cut the beeswax into small pieces. I usually cut mine into 1-inch squares.

Step 2: Melt the beeswax

Next, place the beeswax in a pot and melt it over low heat.

Step 3: Add the wick

Once the beeswax is melted, add the wick and stir to combine.

Step 4: Pour the wax into a mold

Now you can pour the wax into a mold. I like to use a paper towel roll because it makes a nice, thick candle.

Step 5: Let the wax cool

Once the wax has been poured into the mold, let it cool completely. This usually takes a few hours.

Step 6: Remove the candle from the mold

Once the wax has cooled, you can remove the candle from the mold. Just gently peel back the waxed paper and the candle will pop right out.

Step 7: Trim the wick

Finally, trim the wick to about 1/4 inch in length.

Making Organic Beeswax Candles

Candles have been around for centuries, and for good reason. Not only do they provide light, but they also emit a pleasant, relaxing aroma. Today, many people are choosing to make their own candles using organic beeswax. Beeswax is a natural and renewable resource, and it burns cleanly and without emitting harmful toxins.

There are a few things you’ll need to make your own organic beeswax candles. First, you’ll need a heat source. This can be a stovetop, a hot plate, or a candle warmer. You’ll also need beeswax, wicks, and a container to put the candles in.

The first step is to measure out the beeswax. You’ll need enough to fill your container two-thirds of the way full. Melt the beeswax in a double boiler or in a microwave-safe container. Once it’s melted, add the wicks.

Next, pour the melted beeswax into the container. You’ll want to make sure the wicks are in the center of the container. Allow the candles to cool and harden.

Once the candles have hardened, you can trim the wicks to the desired length and light them up! Enjoy your beautiful, natural candles.
