What’s in This Rolled Beeswax Tapered Candle?

Beeswax Sheet

Made from 100% pure beeswax, this candle is completely natural and eco-friendly, so you can feel good about using them. Beeswax sheets are the perfect way to make your very own rolled beeswax candles. Unlike paraffin candles, beeswax candles do not release harmful chemicals into the air when burned.


Your candle won’t be complete without a trusty candle wick! Made from high quality materials, our candle wicks are designed to withstand the heat of the flame, providing you with a beautiful, relaxing experience.

Peppermint Essential Oil

Looking for a minty pick-me-up? Peppermint Essential Oil is invigorating and refreshing, perfect for when you need an energizing boost. This essential oil also supports respiratory health and soothes seasonal discomfort.

Blood Orange Essential Oil

Blood orange essential oil is known to uplift the senses and promote rest. A few drops of this powerful oil will let you enjoy its fresh, citrusy scent while reaping the benefits of its immunity-boosting properties.

Rolled Beeswax Tapered Candle Recipe

Rolled Beeswax Tapered Candle

Time: 2 minutes
Yield: 1 candle
Burn Time: 2 hours


  • Beeswax sheet

  • Wick

  • 5 drops Peppermint Essential Oil

  • 10 drops Blood Orange Essential Oil

  • 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 long side of the beeswax so that you are creating a long candle. 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 a 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.
