Beeswax Candle Making / Filtering Wax / Dipping Candles & Make Container Candles / Cottagecore.
Making Beeswax Candles can actually be a relaxing project. I purchased a huge bucket full of beeswax, that has been sitting in an old farm shed, for what looks like many years, so I am filtering the beeswax to clean it up.
It won't be suitable for making salves or beeswax wraps however it is perfect for candle making. In this tutorial video, I show you how I'm dipping wicks to make birthday candles, the frame set up for dipped candle making and how I make essential oil, pillar candles in jars. I am using Fowler Jars but Ball Mason are also suitable for this project.
CANDLE RECIPE OPTION
1 Pound Beeswax
1 to 2 Ounces of Pure Essential Oil Optional (I used Tangerine and Orange today)
1/2 Cup Coconut Oil Optional

Welcome to Moat Cottage Homesteading, I'm Elissa and here at Moat Cottage, we raise and grow and process some of our own free range meat, organic vegetables and fruit. We grow all of our herbs for both eating and medicinal purposes as well as hunt, fish and forage.
Our goal each season is to preserve our produce for the year ahead by canning, dehydrating, fermenting and freezing and we work on being prepared for emergency situations.
Avoiding single use plastic, chemicals and artificial fragrances is important to us and we are trying to live an older style life, balanced with this modern world.
