Beeswax Candle Dipping Preparation

As we prepare to dip candles we gather the components:

Beeswax ~ a wheel

or chunks

a pot ~ one that can be dedicated to wax melting

a large can to put inside the pot ~ this one held pineapple juice


a dowel or branch to hang the candles as they dry

Warm the beeswax in the can in water in the pot

Waiting for the beeswax to melt

We'll continue when wax is melted......stayed tuned...until tomorow


  1. Can't wait to see the rest! Thanks Lisa

  2. How fun, Lisa! Can't wait to dip our candles for Candlemas! We love to use them as birthday candles and have had requests from relatives to make them so they make great little holiday gifts :)

  3. So jealous! We have too many projects going on this year - so it is on the list.

    Have you ever made beeswax polish?

    Namaste, Nicole

  4. Looking forward to dip candles too!

  5. This is a wonderful tutorial. I am looking forward to part II. We'll miss doing it for Candlemas, but we'll do it another time very soon! Thanks so much for this!
