DIY Beeswax & Lavender Candle Tutorial

Mar 10, 2019


Welcome to The Poker Club at West Houston's DIY Beeswax & Lavender Candle Tutorial. In this comprehensive guide, we will take you through the step-by-step process of creating your very own beeswax and lavender candle. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced crafter, this tutorial will help you unleash your creativity while enjoying the soothing scent of lavender in your home.

Why Choose Beeswax?

When it comes to candle making, beeswax is a popular choice for many reasons. Not only does it emit a warm, natural glow, but it also offers a range of benefits such as:

  • Non-Toxic: Beeswax is free from harmful chemicals, ensuring a safe and healthy environment.
  • Soothing Aroma: The natural scent of beeswax, combined with aromatic lavender, creates a relaxing ambiance in your space.
  • Long Burn Time: Beeswax candles burn longer compared to other types of candles, providing you with extended hours of enjoyment.
  • Beautiful Appearance: The golden hue of beeswax candles adds a touch of elegance to any room.

Materials You'll Need

Before we dive into the candle making process, let's gather the materials required for this project:

  • 100% Pure Beeswax Sheets
  • Pre-Waxed Candle Wick
  • Lavender Essential Oil
  • Candle Mold
  • Double Boiler
  • Heat-Resistant Container
  • Wick Holder
  • Thermometer
  • Measuring Spoons
  • Wax Paper
  • Optional: Dried Lavender Buds for Decoration

Step-by-Step Guide

Step 1: Prepare Your Workspace

Begin by setting up your workspace in a clean and well-ventilated area. Cover the surface with wax paper to protect it from any potential wax spills. Ensure all your materials are within reach for easy access during the candle making process.

Step 2: Prepare the Beeswax

Take your 100% pure beeswax sheets and trim them to fit your candle mold. It's important to have the right amount of wax to achieve optimal burning and consistency. Using a double boiler, melt the beeswax over low to medium heat, stirring occasionally until completely melted.

Step 3: Add Lavender Essential Oil

Once the beeswax has melted, remove it from the heat source and allow it to cool slightly. Add a few drops of lavender essential oil to the melted wax, adjusting the amount based on your preference for scent intensity. Stir gently to ensure even distribution of the oil throughout the wax.

Step 4: Secure the Wick

Secure the pre-waxed candle wick at the center of your candle mold using a wick holder. Ensure that the wick is straight and centered to ensure an even burn later on.

Step 5: Pour the Beeswax

Carefully pour the melted beeswax into the candle mold, ensuring that the wick remains in the center. Fill the mold to your desired height, leaving enough space at the top for the wax to settle and solidify.

Step 6: Let it Cool and Solidify

Allow the candle to cool and solidify at room temperature. This process may take a few hours, so be patient and avoid moving or disturbing the candle until it is completely solidified.

Step 7: Trim the Wick

Once the candle has solidified, trim the wick to approximately ΒΌ inch to ensure a clean and efficient burn. Leave a small amount of wick for easy lighting.

Step 8: Optional Decoration

If desired, you can add a touch of beauty to your candle by placing dried lavender buds on top of the solidified wax. This adds an attractive visual element to your finished product.


Congratulations! You have successfully created your own DIY beeswax and lavender candle. Now, sit back, relax, and enjoy the gentle flicker and soothing aroma of your handcrafted creation. Candle making is a rewarding and fulfilling activity that allows you to personalize your space with natural and environmentally-friendly options. Remember, at The Poker Club at West Houston, we encourage creativity and self-expression in every aspect of life, even candle making!
