Aromatherapy Beeswax Candle Project
This natural recipe is made with an essential oil blend that smells warm, spicy, and comforting. See the description for more blend ideas! 

Ingredients

16 oz. Premium Yellow Beeswax
Four 4 oz. Hexagon Jars
4 HTP 93 Wicks

Joyful Holiday Essential Oil Blend
0.4 oz. 10X Orange Essential Oil
0.3 oz. Clove Leaf Essential Oil
0.5 oz. Fir Needle Essential Oil
0.4 oz. Cedarwood Atlas Essential Oil

Instructions

NOTE: You can melt beeswax a few different ways – we recommend using a double boiler. It’s possible to melt it in the microwave, but because beeswax has a high melting point it takes a long time. The container needs to be very heat resistant so it won’t break.

PREPARE DOUBLE BOILER: Fill a large pot about a quarter full and place a heat-safe container on it. The container needs to be about the same diameter as the pot. Turn the heat to high until the water boils, then reduce to medium to maintain a soft boil. 

1 Add 16 ounces of premium yellow beeswax to the heat-safe container. Allow the wax to melt slowly and don’t allow it to exceed 180° F. Tip: This process can take a while depending on your melting setup. We recommend staying close to your container and stirring the beeswax every now and then to help it melt evenly.
2

Add 0.4 ounces of 10X Orange Essential Oil, 0.3 ounces of clove leaf essential oil, 0.5 ounces of fir needle essential oil, and 0.4 ounces of cedarwood essential oil to a glass container. Set aside. 

3

Once the beeswax is completely melted, turn off the double boiler and remove the container. Set it aside and allow the wax to cool to about 160-165° F. 

4

Add the essential oil blend and stir for about 1 minute to fully incorporate. 

5

Allow the wax to cool to 155-160° F. Pour it into each container. Tip: Try your best to pour the wax into each container quickly and in one smooth motion. If you pour twice, you will end up with a line between the first and second pour.

6

Insert the HTP 93 wicks into each container. The wax should be cool enough to support the wick. 

7

Allow the candles to fully cool and harden. Trim the wick. Light and enjoy!
