Bourbon & Beeswax Candle

This warm, cozy candle features the signature scent of Kentucky Bourbon. With notes of oak, leather, and spicy clove, this fragrance is perfect for fall and winter. Yellow beeswax and Kentucky Bourbon Fragrance Oil combine to create an authentic Kentucky Bourbon aroma. Beeswax is a natural material with a high melting point, so it can be melted in the microwave or double boiler.

The Bourbon & Beeswax candle is made from all-natural ingredients and a braided cotton wick. It burns cleanly and provides a long-lasting fragrance. This candle is paraben and phthalate-free. It also smells like honey when it burns.

This candle is a great gift idea for a special occasion. It has a delicious aroma and has been hand-poured into amber glass jars. It adds a cozy glow to any room. Just make sure you follow the manufacturer’s instructions on burning beeswax candles to avoid any mishaps.

Coconut oil

Beeswax candles are made from beeswax and a soft oil such as coconut oil. The soft oil will lower the melting point of the beeswax and give the candle a fresh scent. Coconut oil is relatively inexpensive and goes well with a variety of scents.

To make beeswax candles smelling amazing, you can use essential oils or even a blend of essential oils. You can choose to use any blend you want, but you’ll need about 30 drops of essential oil to make one candle. For example, you could use 15 drops of cedarwood and 10 drops of jasmine. If you’d like to add an earthy fragrance, you can submerge a few leaves of fresh herbs into the wax. Then, allow the candle to cool on a counter for 5-6 hours before trimming the wick.

You can purchase beeswax in blocks or jars of yogurt. The blocks are usually one pound each. You can shred the blocks with a cheese grater or cut them into small chunks. Beeswax is slow-burning, which means the scent will be released slowly as the candle burns down. To make beeswax candles scented with essential oils, use a quality wick to help avoid burning the candle too fast.

Beeswax candles are safe for allergy sufferers and sensitive people. Beeswax candles also burn clean and are easy on the environment. Coconut oil is a common ingredient in beeswax candles. It can be purchased at your local health food store. Make sure you choose the right wick for your candles, as it’s essential to the success of your candles.

When preparing beeswax candles, you should always be sure to use a wick clip. The wick should be about 1/2 inch long. Any shorter than this will result in a smaller flame and greater chances of tunneling. It is best to let your beeswax candle burn for 2.5 hours.

Once you have finished making beeswax candles, make sure to let them cool completely before burning them. Once you have melted the wax, trim the wick every time to keep the scent strong. Remember that beeswax can be messy, so be sure to use a second candle melting pitcher.

Beeswax/coconut oil blend

Beeswax candles are made from a natural blend of beeswax and coconut oil. The coconut oil makes the candles burn more evenly and prevents tunneling. Beeswax is a high-melting-point wax. The other oils commonly used in candles include lard, coconut oil, and palm kernel oil. A 100% beeswax candle is also available. Although it has a very high melting point, it is also smelly.

Once you have the beeswax and coconut oil mix, you’re ready to make your candles. Simply melt them in a pot over medium-low heat until they reach 144 degrees F. Be sure to leave at least an inch of space at the top of the jar before you cut the wicks.

You can add a small amount of essential oil to each jar of wax. However, the more beeswax you use, the more essential oil you can add. Then, pour the mixture into your candle vessel. Be careful not to pour it too hot or too cool, as it could cause bubbles and shrink the jar. If it does shrink too much, leave some of the wax in the container to fill in any gaps. Once the wax is solidified, remove it from the pot and let it cool down at room temperature. The longer it cools, the less likely it is to have any issues. Once the wax has cooled, cut the wick to 1/4 inch from the wax.

Using a beeswax/coconut oil mixture for candles is a great way to add fragrance to your candles without sacrificing their natural fragrance. The natural scent of honey and coconut compliment each other well and adds a unique aroma to your candles. You can experiment with different blends to create unique fragrances for your candles.

If you’ve never made beeswax candles before, you should be prepared for a bit of troubleshooting. The size of your wick and the jar size will determine whether or not your candles tunnel. A larger wick will provide more heat and a thicker wick will melt the wax more evenly.
