Choosing to make beeswax candles is a great alternative to buying commercial candles, which are often made with synthetic fragrances and petroleum-based waxes.

In this Aromatherapy how-to video, we will make beeswax candles with essential oils, starting with preparing the jars at 0:30, measuring and melting the beeswax at 1:10, preparing the wicks at 2:10, measuring and blending your essential oils at 2:53, and pouring the candle at 4:52.

The basic recipe is 1 ml of essential oil (about 25 drops) for every 1 oz (28 gm) of beeswax.

Enjoy your candles!
