All About Rolled Candles

Rolled candles are made with sheets of beeswax. Making them is simple and has surprisingly good results. Accessible even to children, these pretty candles have an incomparable scent.


  • Sheets of beeswax
  • Wick
  • Hair dryer
  • Utility knife


  • Soften the sheet of beeswax with a hair dryer until it is flexible.

  • Put a candle wick along the length of the sheet. The wick must extend beyond the wax by about 2 cm (3/4 inch).

  • Push lightly along the length of the wick to press it into the wax. The wick doesn't need to be stiffened beforehand.

  • Roll the beeswax sheet tightly and make sure that the wick is firmly in place.

  • Use your thumb to blend in the visible edge of the beeswax sheet.

  • Coat the tip of the wick with a little beeswax to stiffen it.
