Homemade beeswax candles - it's easy!

It's super easy to get started making tealights from beeswax - it actually only requires 3 things:

  1. Beeswax granules
  2. Walls
  3. Form

Start by melting beeswax over a water bath. In other words, put the beeswax into a bowl - and then the bowl into a suitably sized pan of boiling water.

Beeswax already melts at around 62 degrees, so be careful not to turn up the heat too much. Turn down the heat when the beeswax has melted.

When the beeswax has melted, light production can start. When making tealights, place the wick in the center of your mold and carefully pour the beeswax into the mold.

Such! It was simply that. Now you have made your own tealights from beeswax. Super easy, and a good activity to do with the whole family.

If you have the courage to try making your own beeswax candles, you can buy beeswax granules right here on the webshop.


Safety rules

  • When working with beeswax, the temperature must not exceed 80 degrees. At temperatures above 100 degrees, wax is explosive, so be careful. If you comply with these rules, there is absolutely no risk.
  • The wax melts at approx. 62 degrees, so keep the temperature as low as possible.
  • Never use an open flame – always melt in a water bath, never directly in a pot.
  • If the wax catches fire - turn off the heat. Do not use water, but a fire blanket or powder extinguisher. The workplace is covered with old newspapers or something else that can be discarded after use.
