Today, we’re launching our new Beeswax Candle Kit. This contains 10 sheets of beeswax (4 times as much as the kit you’ll find at your hobby retailer), plenty of wick, decorative bee pins, ribbon and instructions. You can make candles of three types: a pillar candle, a plain spiral and a “petaled” spiral flower. The pillar candle uses one sheet and burns for several hours, whereas the spirals only use half a sheet each. So, you could make between 10 (if you only create pillars) and 20 candles with the kit. You won’t believe how easy and enjoyable it is to “roll your own” candles!
You can see and hear me making a pillar candle using the kit
in a video here.
These kits are an ideal alternative to moulded candles – the candles can be made in minutes and burn with the subtle, sweet aroma of honey. They are truly beautiful both before and during burning.
As they don’t require any heat, these candles are ideal for keeping kids occupied over Easter (under supervision of course) and our kit is a very cheap way of creating Easter gifts.
