Alternative Methods of Making Hurricane Candles
Beeswax can be used as an effective and efficient method of making hurricane candles. To make beeswax hurricane candles, you would need wax sheets or cakes of beeswax, suitable molds for shaping the candle, a double-boiler or wax melter to melt the beeswax, wicks, colored pigments to dye the candles (optional), and some type of scent such as bee pollen for extra fragrance. Once your supplies are gathered you can place several pieces of wax in the double boiler or wax melter to melt it. You may want to add a few drops of food colorant if you desire scented candles. When the wax has completely melted use a dripping spoon to fill pre-made molds for attractive shapes. Make sure that your hurricane candle molds are deep enough for over an inch of melted wax inside so that when the final product cools down properly it will have depth. With a pair of tweezers insert several wicks in different areas around these shapes while they’re fresh. After they harden, you can twist off all unmelted bits at the bottom with scissors so that they sit straight. Finally, rub some colored pigment on top with a tissue paper to finish them off!

Discussion on Natural Hurricane Candle Supplies
When it comes to creating hurricane candles with natural materials, there are a number of benefits. First and foremost, using natural ingredients is better for the environment due to its lack of chemical pollutants. Natural soy wax, coconut oil and essential oils are renewable resources and help reduce waste compared to traditional paraffin wax products. Furthermore, these materials often burn cleaner than their synthetic counterparts without the release of toxins into the air. Soy wax in particular provides an excellent flame-less aroma that can alter a room’s ambiance, making it gentler on those who may have allergies or sensitivities to strong fragrances. Coconut oil additionally creates a pleasant burning sensation and also gives off minimal smoke as it burns away. Essential oils deliver unique aromas into the environment that are subtle yet refreshing. Overall, by exploiting natural hurricane candle materials, one can craft beautiful mementos while being mindful of environmental conservation efforts simultaneously.
Showcase a Tutorial on Hurricane Candle Making
Creating a hurricane candle can be an easy and creative project for customers to make at home. The first step is to gather the necessary supplies:
• Hurricanes or glass hurricanes
• Wax (any type will work ” soy, beeswax, paraffin, etc.)
• Candle dye
• Fragrance oil (optional)
• Double boiler
• Pouring pot/crucible
• Metal spoon
Once all the supplies are collected and prepared, you can begin with the video tutorial or step-by-step guide. Start by preparing the wick so it is ready to be poured into the glass. Tie one end of the wick around a pencil and lay across the opening of your hurricane, so that it hangs down in the center. Next, measure out your wax and dye into a double boiler – bringing the mixture slowly up to about 185°F so that everything melts together nicely. Once melted, add your fragrance oil and let cool for about five minutes in order for it to thicken slightly before pouring. Obviously these temperatures must be monitored with a thermometer throughout as you do not want them to get too hot or too cold.
Next use a pouring pot or crucible to transition from double boiler to hurricane without losing any liquid in process. Carefully pour wax into hurricane, leaving some room at top. Let cool naturally so as not have any structural issues later on once wax has hardened before trimming wick to preferred length using scissors or removing pencil support altogether. Last but not least, display proudly!
