Waste Nothing

cheese wax candle

It is quite easy to make candles from this wax. Strip the wax off the paper strips, combine it with wax from the two halves, and mush it together around a wick, such as a piece of string. You may want to narrow the wax towards the top where the wick is to make it easier to light. You probably want to use at least two cheeses or the candle will be very tiny. See a video of the making of a candle inside a glass.

This applies to Babybel cheese wax.
