To Do: Beeswax Candles

Did you ever make candles out of beeswax sheets in elementary school? It was so fun and easy! All those memories came back to me when I saw a photo of French beeswax candles in the December issue of Gourmet Magazine.

I ordered some beeswax sheets and wicks from Knorr Beeswax to make this a holiday craft! Instead of the giant pillars from elementary school, I'll roll the sheets into sets of smaller four inch candles. Pair that with a dozen honey cookies and a bottle of L'Occitane honey bubble bath and you have a clever homemade Christmas present.

I wonder if it is a "Davis-thing" to make beeswax candles from scratch?
