Friday Faves...How to make your own Beeswax Jar Candles with Essential Oils


Our unofficially adopted granddaughter, (she was our middle grandson's nanny and is our two oldest grands' bosom friend), is home from college for holiday break. This week she came over to spend the afternoon with me. I've been wanting to try making beeswax jar candles, so we decided it would be a fun project to tackle together! 

SUPPLIES NEEDED:
1/2 cup coconut oil
essential oil of choice
lead free cotton candle wicks
(I got mine at JoAnn's Fabric store.
 Check what size wick you will need based on the diameter of the jar)
three 8oz jars
1 quart jar
bamboo skewers

Pour the beeswax pastilles into the clean gas quart jar and microwave until completely melted.
(A remaining handful of pastilles would not fit into the jar, but as the wax began to melt after a couple of minutes in the microwave, I was able to pour the remaining pastilles in.)
Every few minutes, being careful to use potholders, use a wooden skewer to stir the melted wax.
Continue to microwave until the wax is completely melted.

Meanwhile, put a small dot of hot glue on the metal disk at the bottom of the wick and place it in the center of the inside of the jar.
Place a wooden skewer across the top of the empty jar and tie the wick to the skewer.
When the wax is melted, carefully remove it from the microwave and stir in the coconut oil.
Add and stir in 30 or so drops of your favorite essential oil or oil blend.
Carefully pour hot wax into the jars being careful to keep the wicks centered.
This made two 8oz candles but did not completely fill up the third candle jar.

Once the candles are completely cooled and hardened, trim the wick to about 1/2 inch and enjoy!



Have a blessed and happy weekend everyone!

  1. Good morning, Elizabeth. I have two questions. Would you recommend a smaller jar for the third candle? I'm wondering how short the third candle was. Also, where did you get your beautiful jars? Thanks for sharing!
