How to make homemade beeswax candles

http://www.thecapitalf.com/2015/07/how-to-make-homemade-beeswax-candles.html

I love candles and the change of mood when they are lit. Unfortunately
there are quite a few health risks to conventional candles and so I
decided to just make my own.



Here is what you need:

  • Empty honeycombs or beeswax
  • Scissors
  • Pliers
  • Cotton string

 Intructions

# Cut the string to size and tie a know into one end of the string.

 #Heat the empty honeycomb in a small pan until its melted.

# Soak the cotton string in the wax, take it out with the pliers and let it cool off.  

# Pour the remaining wax into a glass jar of your choice and place the wick in the middle of it while the wax is still liquid.

# Let it cool off, done!
