Candle making, this is how it works:
Never let your child dip the candles alone and prepare a bucket, with cold water, in case an accident does happen!
1. cut the wick to the desired length and knot a loop at one end.
2. heat a container of beeswax pastilles in a water bath. No water should splash into it.
3. dip the wick in and straighten it if necessary. let it cool down, dip it in again every 2 minutes until the desired thickness is reached.
Candles made of pure beeswax create a very special atmosphere. Their warm light gives a feeling of security, the unique scent awakens memories of warm sunny days in the cold season. Especially for children it is a special and memorable moment to draw candles themselves from beeswax. It takes perseverance and concentration until the candle reaches the necessary thickness and of course a lot of patience. Surrounded by the smell of beeswax, perhaps accompanied by a song, candle drawing at home in the family, in the Waldorf kindergarten or in the after-school care centre of the Waldorf school can create a wonderful, homely atmosphere at autumn, Advent and Christmas time. The resulting candles are ideal as a gift or for special holidays.
Beeswax from Dipam - a piece of nature
For over 20 years, Dipam beeswax candles have been handcrafted in a small manufactory. Guaranteed free of additives, selected raw waxes are filtered and then dipped and shaped into a diverse selection of candles. Similar to honey, differences in colour cannot be ruled out. They indicate the originality of the beeswax.
Depending on the temperature, a matt coating can develop on the candle surface over time. The fine layer can be easily removed with a soft cloth. Beeswax candles from Dipam burn without dripping when handled well and have a long burning time.
