Candle making is a highly rewarding and stress-free craft: If you make a mistake, simply return the beeswax to your double boiler and remelt it — no waste! Beeswax candles add a warm glow and a wonderful, distinctive scent to the room, making them especially popular during the cooler months. Beekeepers who process beeswax can use their own wax supply, but we carry beeswax options for anyone who wants to give the hobby a try. Whether you choose to roll or pour the candles, it only takes a small investment in tools and supplies to get started. Beeswax candles make wonderful gifts or additions to the sales table; we offer sturdy candle packaging to show them off at the market.

The entire process, from making your beeswax candles to burning them, can be a very relaxing and enjoyable activity when you own the right tools and supplies for the job. Please remember that beeswax, like all wax, can be flammable when overheated. Always follow the directions in your candle making books for proper heating instructions.
