I am trying to help one of my son's friends make beeswax candles for his mom for Christmas. I need to know how much beeswax he needs to purchase. I can find directions all over the web, but not how much he needs. Assuming he wants to make a big jar candle how much beeswax would be need. I have someone local I can purchase it from. I will call him in a bit and see if he can tell me, but until then anyone have any idea.
