How to Make Beeswax Candles

What's the Buzz about Beeswax Candle Sheets?

Whether you are a large manufacturer or a home hobbyist, it is truly amazing to sit down with kids, friends, family, and coworkers to roll and burn candles made with 100% natural beeswax as a way to enjoy each other’s company or to make candles that can be sold for profit.  Beeswax candle sheets come in many colors and sizes.

Typically a square braid wick is used for rolling beeswax and the type of wick depends on the size of the finished candle. We recommend you get a roll of a small, a medium, and a large wick to start (4/0, 1/0, and #2).

Not sure which color to try? Purchase a beeswax sheet sampler pack of mixed colors and get a free book! You don't get to choose the colors included, but it is usually a good sampling of many colors across the board.
