If the soot created from paraffin triggers allergies, you might want to try beeswax instead. Because beeswax smells so good naturally, it’s not necessary to add fragrances.
Making Rolled Beeswax Candles
Children can safely help make rolled beeswax candles out of honeycomb sheets because they don’t need to be heated on the stove. They do need to be warmed a little with a blow dryer if you’re in a cold environment. If the beeswax sheets are cold, they could get stiff and break.
Then you simply place a cotton wick across the length of one end of the beeswax sheet and roll tightly! Rolled beeswax candles are beautiful and they’re a lot of fun to create. You can buy the sheets in any color you like and some of them even have sparkles added.
On the other hand, there’s nothing like a natural yellow beeswax candle with no chemicals or dyes added. If you’re interested in making your own beeswax candles, here a few suppliers who specialize in beeswax. Some of them have beginner candle making kits to help get you started.
