Beeswax Crayons

You can make these with beeswax only, but we find the carnauba wax holds the pigment nicely so we like to add it.

¾ c beeswax

2 T cocoa butter

6 T carnauba wax

1 tsp each of 5 different natural pigments (to make 5 different colours).

Essential oils of choice (optional)

Melt the beeswax, carnauba wax and cocoa butter together then separate evenly into 5 bowls. Stir in any essential oils if using. Mix different colours into each of the bowls. You may need to keep the bowls suspended in a hot water bath to ensure the wax mixture doesn’t begin to set before the pigments have been properly mixed in. Continue mixing until the wax begins to solidify a bit then pour into molds and leave to set completely. Read more on our DIY wax crayons and pigments on our blog.

You will probably want to go for a ratio of carnauba wax to oil of 1:3 and up.

Although it's a natural alternative to beeswax, because it is such a hard wax it does need to be heated to a higher melting point (180-190 degrees) before it will melt.

I was pleased to receive quick and free delivery, the goods were well packed and, to my delight, I received a free sample of Witch Hazel distillate.
I will recommend this company and will definitely order from them again.
