What You’ll Need
Create your double boiler. If you don’t have one, you can make one simply with a pot and glass measuring cup. Fill your pot with just enough water to touch the bottom of the glass measuring cup, but not so much that it spills over.
Add your beeswax and coconut oil to the glass measuring cup and turn on burner to medium heat. Stir as the wax and oil melts and combines.
Once wax and oil has completely melted, remove from heat and add essential oil(s) and any dyes. Stir well to combine. Carefully pour the mixture into molds, making sure not to splash the wax over the edges.
Let molds cool–it should take around 3-4 hours before completely cooled and hardened. Pop from the molds, wrap in holiday-themed paper with a bow, and give to your loved ones!
