Twin Twirly Candles Recipe
Twirly Candles Recipe
Time: 2 minutes
Yield: 1 candle
5 drops Fir Needle Essential Oil
- 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.
- Measure one inch below the top left corner of your wax and create a small mark using scissors. From the bottom right corner, measure one inch above and again create a small mark in the wax. Cut your wax in a straight line to each mark that you measured.
- Take one of your pieces of wax and lay the wick along the long end. Trim the wick so that it is about 1/4 inch longer than your sheet of beeswax on both ends.
- Add drops of essential oil over the sheet, spacing out the drops. Example: one drop in the middle, one drop on the side, one drop near the top, etc.
- Being careful not to let the essential oil get in contact with your skin, 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 or blow dryer 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 along the bottom of your candle to create the round staircase effect.
- 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. Repeat with your second piece of wax from step 2 to create a second candle.
- To use, place in a candle holder and light the candle. Burn within sight. Keep away from flammables. Keep away from children and pets.
