When lit, a tight rolled taper is smokeless,
drip less, and burns for a long time.

Practice will produce the perfectly rolled
candle. If the candle is not rolled tightly,
space between the layers allows air to
circulate, and the candle will burn quickly

STEPS TO MAKE A BEESWAX CANDLE
FROM SHEET BEESWAX:
Place the bees wax sheet on a work surface.
Cut the sheet in half across the 16-inch
length, giving you two (8-inch) squares.
Place a wick along one side of the beeswax,
about 1/8 inch from the edge. Allow it to
extend about ½ inch beyond both ends of
the sheet. Gently work the wax edge over
the wick, encasing it tightly.
Roll the candle as tightly as possible, from
the wick edge to the opposite side. To keep
it straight, work from end to end. When the
candle is complete, gently press the end of
the wax into the candle with your finger.
Trim the wick flush with the wax on the
bottom end to about ¼ inch on top.
Materials: 8 x 16 sheet beeswax.
2 (9-inch) pieces 18-ply flat braid cotton
WHATS IN WAX; Paraffin wax
Paraffin wax is a byproduct of the oil refining
process. It is a crystalline structure, the oil is
held in suspension in the wax. The higher

in the wax.
130 deg or lower melting point wax has a lot
of oil left in the wax. This means that the
wax will melt before it burns longer. This
type of wax is used in container type
139 deg to 143 deg melting point wax does
not have as much oil in it. It does not burn
as long but it w
