I will guide you through a variety of candle-making techniques including rolling, twisting and dipping.
What you can make:
Rolled pillar candles-These are beautifully simplistic and tend to bring back childhood memories for many. There is a variety of different shapes and sizes you can roll your candles into all with with pure beeswax sheets.
Hand-dipped Birthday Candle Set-These beauties seem to be a crowd favourite and its no surprise. There really is something quite special about inhaling that beeswax scent while seeing the beeswax layers build up after every dip. Coloured wax makes a fun way to customize your own set of 10 candles that will be able to adorn many Birthday cakes.
Twisted Candles-Another unique option you can add to your beeswax haul. Pure mustard beeswax colour or dipped in colour? You choose...
I am Mother/Beekeeper/Candle-Maker and am truly passionate about bees and beeswax. Having grown up around bees all my life as a Beekeepers daughter it was only natural to pursue my own Beekeeping journey for the last 8 years. Having had the privilege of making candles from such a beautifully natural product, it seems only right to share the knowledge and fun of making beeswax candles.
I have done the wick testing, research and a lot of trial and error so you get to enjoy creating your own bespoke candles that will burn beautifully. With a love and respect for bees its important to me, to give the upmost credit to the humble bee by sharing fascinating bee and beeswax facts.
