Fall is in the air! No, literally, because these DIY beeswax anise fall candles really get you in the fall mood even when it is still 29 degrees Celsius out and bright and sunny, haha. They smell so good you guys, believe me you will have your whole house smell like fall in minutes with these. That, if you like anise! But you can add which ever essential oil you like, so that is great isn´t it!?
Why beeswax? Because it is environmentally friendly, non toxic or allergenic, and it has a slight honey scent that is just so good!

DIY Beeswax Anise Fall Candles
You will need:
essential oil of your choice, I used anise
big jar and bain-marie for melting the wax
Break the beeswax into small chunks and put them into a big jar.
1. Heat them in a bain marie over low heat. This will take some time, approx. 20-30 minutes until it is all melted.
2. In the meantime, prepare your jars or coconut shells and stick the wick to the bottom. If you have a beeswax wick you can just bend it and it sticks by itself if you press it down a bit. Wrap the other end of the wick around a spoon, or small stick, what ever will keep it from moving once you pour in the wax.
3 & 4. When the wax is finally melted, add your essential oil of choice. The beeswax already has a lovely scent and mixed with anise it is heavenly! Pour it into your coconut shells or jars and make sure the wick stays centered.
Now to wait until it is all solid and then cut the wicks and burn these babies!

I´m planning on making some more candles for the holiday time, but next time using soy wax and different scents. I think they´d make a great gift adding some cute tags and labels.
If you want to use your beeswax for something else, then check out my friend Mary´s blog. She has a wonderful recipe that she shares here.
Have you ever made your own candles??
