Beeswax for Candle Making

Candlewic offers premium white and yellow bulk beeswax in easy to handle pastilles. Candlewic’s beeswax is 100% natural and is cosmetic grade. Of all the materials used to make candles, natural beeswax is considered to be the most prestigious, the most elegant and in many cases the most expensive. Candles made with beeswax burn very slowly and cleanly with the sweet aroma of honey, creating a relaxing, intimate atmosphere. Beeswax can be used at 100% or can be blended effectively with paraffin or soy waxes to improve the overall quality. It can also be very beneficial in increasing burn times when blended with paraffin and soy. Beeswax has very little shrinkage and can be used to make container, pillar, votive, novelty or taper candles.


Beeswax Candles
  • Beeswax does have soft and tacky properties despite its high melting point. This can make mold release difficult in some cases. We recommend using a silicone spray to ease in mold release every 3rd or 4th pour.
  • The best molds to use with the beeswax are polyurethane or polycarbonate. Aluminum molds will work but mold release is essential to use. We recommend pouring beeswax at 155-165º F for best results.
  • The Square Braided series of wicks were originally designed for beeswax candles and are the most effective. Their open construction and treatment make them ideal for the highly viscous beeswax.
  • The square braided is designed to give you a slight curl when it is burned to minimize blooming (carbon buildup).
  • After a considerable period of time, candles made with beeswax may appear to be covered with a mysterious white powder called “bloom” creating an attractive frosty appearance.
  • Many candle makers like the exotic look of the “bloom” because they feel it gives their candles the look of “age.” “Bloom” has no effect on the way the candle burns and is actually a sign of purity in 100% beeswax.
