Beeswax Candle: Cheap, Easy, and Smells Fantastic!

I love candles. LOVE them.
 For years I have burned candles; flame lighted, warmer burner, tea light, tart burners;
you name it I had it going in the house!
But, (there’s AlWaYs a but, isn’t there!)
over the the last several years I have developed an allergy to fragrances.
They make me cough! 
It’s horrible.
I hate it!
I miss coming home to a wonderful smelling house.
Oh the smell of  Vanilla, Buttercream, Pumpkin, or Cinnamon, how I miss thee!
Hence, the reason for this blog post.
This is the beginning of my quest for great smelling, cheap, easy to make candles.
Today’s recipe is a “home run”, it meets all of my requirements.
Beeswax Candle: Cheap, Easy, and Smells Fantastic!
Here is what you need:
Cheese Grater
4 oz heat proof Jar
First, you need to grate enough beeswax to fit into your jar.
Second, place the grated beeswax in your jar.
Third, place jar on candle warmer and Enjoy the great smell of honey!
Optional: add essential oils to your beeswax to increase and/or to change the scent.
I might try adding some cinnamon or vanilla next time or maybe a cinnamon stick and some cloves.

    what a cool idea!!! I’ve been trying to win a beeswax candle this is so much easier… I wonder where are inexpensive place(s) to obtain beeswax. A beekeeper would be great, I’d think, but don’t know any.
