How to Make Poured Beeswax Candles

There are many different types of candle wax on the market from Parafin to Gel Wax.  One of the best types of wax is melted beeswax.  In article written by Lizz Shepherd, eHow Contributing Writer, poured beeswax candles are made from melted beeswax that is reshaped in a mold to create the candle instead of using pre-formed beeswax sheets. The completed candles look like paraffin candles, but they burn cleaner. Poured beeswax candles burn slower than rolled beeswax and they don't develop a white film on them as quickly as rolled beeswax does.

If you would like to learn more on how to make poured beeswax candles and not the rolled beeswax sheet candles, check out the following instructions in the article titled, How to Make Poured Beeswax Candles.

I love working with beeswax. Candles, balms, soaps and more! Actually, I purchased raw comb ends from a local Amish man who has an apiary. Then I rendered my own wax out. It was a very fun and rewarding experience. Ended up being much more cost effective to do it myself as well!
