This recipe is our preferred blend of beeswax and bayberry waxes, giving a smooth even burn without too much dripping.

 8 oz Bayberry Wax
 8 oz Bees Wax

1

Add bayberry and bees waxes to melting pot.

2

Melt and stir to combine.

3

Bring wax to about 160°F then carefully pour candle.

4

As candle cools and wax sets the was will shrink creating a well. Pierce the wax in a couple places to release surface tension then top off the mold with more melted wax. Larger size candles may require a second top off.

This 1 pound recipe will yield any of the following types of candles:

  • Ten 6-inch tall, .6-inch diameter tapers
  • Four 12-inch tall, .75-inch diameter tapers
  • One 4-inch tall, 3-inch diameter pillar

Candle yield will vary, depending on mold shape.
