A flat lay of beeswax, a double boiler, wicks, a mold, and a thermometer.
Gathering Your Materials
Start by gathering all the necessary materials. You'll need beeswax, a double boiler, wicks, a mold or container for your candle, and a thermometer.

Melting the Beeswax
Using the double boiler, melt your beeswax. Monitor the temperature closely; it should be around 145-175 degrees Fahrenheit for beeswax.

Prepping the Wick
While your beeswax is melting, prepare your wick. If you're using a pre-made wick, simply secure it to the bottom of your mold or container. If you're making your own, dip a piece of cotton string in the melted wax and let it dry.

Pouring the Wax
Once your beeswax is melted and your wick is prepared, pour the wax into your mold or container. Be sure to keep the wick straight and centered.

Let it Set
Let your candle cool and solidify completely. This can take anywhere from a few hours to overnight, depending on the size of your candle.

Trim the Wick
Once your candle is completely set, trim the wick to about a quarter inch above the wax. This will ensure it burns evenly and safely.
