Glass Yogurt Jars Make Great Candle Containers
We love the shape of the glass Oui yogurt jars (the yogurt inside is yummy, too!). They’re recyclable, of course, and make great little containers for all sorts of things like paper clips, nails and screws. However, we decided to fill these cute yogurt jars with beeswax candles.
A Word About Beeswax
Beekeepers (also called apiarists) carefully remove the beeswax when they harvest honey from their honeybee hives. They always leave enough honey for the bees to eat because it’s the bees’ main source of nutrition all winter long. When spring comes and flowers and trees bloom again, the bees collect nectar and pollen. That’s when they start making honey and raising new bees for the year ahead. Natural beeswax is wonderful to work with and it smells great without any added fragrance.
