Homemade Beeswax Candles
I used 8oz
In a double boiler, melt the beeswax and the coconut oil together.
If you have a large chuck of beeswax like I did you may find heating a knife in hot water and then cutting through the block of beeswax will work if you need to cut it down.
Prepare your jars with the wick by wrapping the top end of the wick around a pencil to hold the wick straight in the jar.
Once the wax and oil are melted fill each jar up 1/4 of the way and let the wick set in the wax for 5 minutes (you will return the unused wax to the double boiler to stay warm)
Once wicks are set fill the rest of the jar up 3/4 of the way.
If you fill each jar up 3/4 of the way then you will have enough wax for 4 candles.
Let the wax set for 2 days before lighting.
Enjoy your non-toxic candles!
