What I Love About This Beeswax Pillar Candle Recipe 

I was at a loss for what to get my mom for Mother’s Day this year. I thought about getting her some flowers, but she has a garden full of them. Then it hit me: why not MAKE her something that she can use in her everyday life? That is why I love this candle recipe. It is super easy to make and my mom loved it!

What’s in This Scented Pillar Candle Recipe

Beeswax Sheet

Aside from being all-natural, we love using beeswax candles because they have a higher melting point than paraffin wax candles, so they tend to last longer. Beeswax sheets also burn clean, producing less soot than paraffin candles.


Without a wick, there would be no candle! So if you’re looking for a product that’s essential for any candle-lover, look no further than our candle wicks. Made with only the highest quality materials, our wicks will ensure your candles burn evenly and beautifully.

Liquid Luck Essential Oil Blend

Introducing Liquid Luck Essential Oil Blend, a refreshing blend of essential oils that will have you feeling energized and ready to conquer your fears. Our aromatherapists have created this blend not only to make you feel energized, but it’s also going to leave behind an inspiring scent.

Beeswax Pillar Candle Recipe

Beeswax Essential Oil-Scented Pillar Candle Recipe

Burn Time: 1 hour


  • Beeswax sheet

  • Wick

  • 5 drops Liquid Luck Essential Oil Blend

  • Candle holder*


  • If you live in a cool climate, lay the beeswax sheet out on a flat surface and gently press your hands onto the wax to warm it up. This makes it easier to work with. You can also use a blow dryer to warm the wax. Be careful to warm the wax, not melt it.
  • Place the cotton wick along the shorter side of the beeswax. Trim the wick so that it is about 1/4 inch longer than your sheet of beeswax on both ends.
  • Place essential oils on a cotton ball. Dab the cotton ball across the wax.
  • Tightly fold the edge of the beeswax sheet over the wick. If the wax begins to crack as you roll it, use the heat from your hands to fix the cracks or rewarm the wax.
  • Continue to roll up the wax from the end with the wick until your candle is rolled. As you roll, make sure that the wax is being rolled as evenly as possible at the top of your candle. While you are doing this, your hands will come into contact with trace amounts of undiluted essential oil. If you have sensitive skin, wear gloves for this step.
  • Once rolled, secure the wax by briefly heating the wax with your fingers (or blow dryer) and pressing along the seam. Press the excess wick on the bottom of the candle onto the base of the candle to secure.
  • To use, place the candle in a candle holder. You may need to press the candle onto the candle holder so that it stays in place.  Light the candle. Burn within sight. Keep away from flammables. Keep away from children and pets.
