Pick up your wick (with wick tab attached) and wick stickers)
Pull one of the wick stickers off the roll and place it on the wick tab, then peel the paper off the exposed side of the wick sticker.
Attach the wick to the bottom center of the jar.
Melt wax and oil in a double boiler. If you don’t have a double boiler, you can create one by placing one inch of water in a pot, placing a smaller pot or stainless steel bowl inside, and bringing the water to a low simmer on your stove top.
When the beeswax is melted, add essential oils if desired.
Stir the melted beeswax, coconut oil, and essential oils (if using) together. I use a wooden chop stick that I keep just for this purpose so I don’t have to clean it.
Pour wax into the glass jars.
Set the wick so that it’s in the center. You can do this by placing a pencil, straw or wooden skewer across the jar and taping the wick to it, or use my favorite method, which is to thread the wick through the center of a clothespin.
Place the candles in a warm area to harden, because if they cool too quickly the wax will sometimes crack. I usually preheat my oven to 170F while I’m pouring the candles, then turn the oven off and place them inside.
