My son makes me beeswax candles from time to time when he visits his friends family in the country. I dont have any in jars though. I love the smell of beeswax candles. they are so much nicer than regular candles. I will pass this project along to him so he can make me some.

I have always wanted to try making my own candles, so I just love that this looks like it would be an easy project to follow. How much essential oil should you add to the candle?

I love that these DIY candles have just 2 ingredients! These would be a fabulous housewarming gift idea!

These look amazing. As a beekeeper I have plenty of pure, organic beeswax and I'm definitely going to give these a try. Great idea to add food coloring. It'll be fun to try to match colors to scents. Also, your photos are really helpful. I've made candles with beeswax sheets in the past and found that it was important to match the wick thickness to the thickness of the candle.

When you called this easy, you weren't kidding. It was very easy and had me looking for other jars to use. I found an old canning jar with a lid that snaps will be so cute and I can close it after using it. I also found out a few drops of red food coloring gives it a slightly orange tinge.
