After getting a candle-making kit to review a while back I was really happy to get a chance to play with some real beeswax. Using the moulds, wicking and colour pigments provided by the kit I was able to make some fun candles using the best natural product out there. The wax was really easy to melt and use, and with the pigments it was so easy to create rich colours for the candles. I was really impressed with how the 'ice candles' turned out and they worked really well with this wax since it doesnt react with water at all. After I had made the candles, I found they burned really well without me having to add any paraffin or any extra stuff to it. The wicking that came with the kit wasn't the best and needed some prep work too. This wax is certainly the best choice for any candlemaker. Buy it in large amounts if you have to.
