Instructions: Cut the beeswax into small chunks and place in a heat-safe glass measuring cup. Fill a sauce pot halfway with water and bring to a boil, then carefully lower the measuring cup into the boiling water to melt the wax.
While the wax melts, wrap your wicks over a pencil or skewer and center them over your mason jars or other glass containers. Once the wax is melted, add oil and stir until blended.
