Natural beeswax is a sensory delight! It pleases the senses and calms the mind the minute you pick it up and roll a bit in your hands. Breathe in the wonderful aroma of honey as the wax begins to soften from the warmth of your palms. The movement of rolling and molding the soft wax is therapeutic, relaxing and a perfect activity for children of all ages to try.
A beeswax sheet measures approximately 8″W X 8″L and is often made in a mold that gives it a raised honeycomb pattern. The natural coloring can vary from pale yellow to medium brown.
While making candles is a great family activity, it is important to always provide adequate supervision of children when burning candles, and never leave burning candles unattended. It is important to keep matches and lighters out of the reach of children and ensure that candles are placed out of reach of children, especially after burning, as the wax can remain hot for some time.
Finished candles make wonderful gifts for both children and adults, moms and dads, grandparents, or older siblings.
