Make Your Own Aromatic Beeswax Candle

Make your own beeswax candleWho doesn’t love beeswax candles?

This 6-minute video shows you exactly how to make your own beeswax candle with essential oils.

Warning: There is no going back! Once you make your own beeswax candle, with your own essential oils, nothing else compares. Be prepared to be seriously spoiled!

Making your own beeswax candles is a great alternative to buying commercial candles, which often have synthetic fragrances, metal wicks and petroleum-based waxes.  This way, only natural healthy substances are released into your space. Another plus is that when we work with natural beeswax, we support beekeepers!

I’m considering making my own candles but I am completely new to the process. This video was extremely helpful, however, I have heard that using essential oils in candle making can be dangerous as some essential oils catch fire or burn easily. Have you found this to be true? If so, which essential oils would you and would you not recommend using? Thanks!

Hi Diana – I’ve only made small votive and tea light candles, and with the amount of oils added in the video, there’s no danger of catching fire. It’s very safe. :-)
